1 stars There are some unsolved mysteries in the history of the mankind. Hangar 18. How did Bin Laden manage to live just under the noses of the Pakistani secret services without being detected, Marie Celeste, the disappearing vikings from Greenland 1000 years ago............. and what the heck Metallica was thinking when they released St. Anger.

The bad reputation of this album prevented me from unpack the shrink wrapped version I bought ages ago. So it was with a great deal with trepidation I put it on. It cannot be that bad ?

It is.

St. Anger is the total collapse of the civilization as we knows it. The drums sounds utterly horrible. The vocals is twisted. The guitars and the bass is as wooly as the local sheep market. It seems like the band has been listening far too much to the post metal scene. Limp Biscuit and in particular; Linkin Park. On some of the songs here, Metallica even sounds like the Norwegian band Minas Tirith. And I thought nobody sounds like that Norwegian band. The sound is in short; abysmal.

The songs....... well, this is where this album nosedive straight to the concrete floor and below. There is nothing here ! The title track sounds like a knock of Linkin Park track with some hard core and rampaging elephants in a glass house thrown in to make it better. It fails. And that is the best song here. The rest is painful beyond belief. Painful, this album is. Painful.

This album is....... I cannot bring myself to utter these words. I have to agree with other reviewers who rated this album as one of the worst albums ever. It is.

1 star

(and I want my money back !)
