I am going to go against the flow here and state that this record is one of the best things Metallica ever did. Much better than their 90's releases. And I also happen to give this record more spins than Kill em all or Ride the Lighting. Yeah , the snare drum sounds like cr*p , there are no guitar solos here as well and James sings off key sometimes. I also can see that.

But all those things were done on purpose to give a Lo - fi feel. As regards the music , there are TONS of great riffs here , yeah the nu metal infuence is there but rest assured this is still Metallica. There are no standout tracks here since all have more or less the same level ( a very high one)

One of the most underrated albums in the history of mankind. You should give St Anger a 2nd chance!!!
