2 stars I've never been ashamed to say that I like the 'St. Anger' album. I suppose somebody has to! And while I recognize it's flaws and why people look at it with such disdain, from a musical point of view, 'The Unnamed Feeling' is definitely one of the better tracks on the record (if there are any good ones, to begin with), and totally justified for it's release as a single. Or an extended play. Whichever.

To accompany the feature track here, we're given six live cuts from one of Metallica's shows of that time period. While these are a nice addition for collectors, unfortunately they're still pretty dull. Bearing in mind that these were recorded in 2003, a time when the band were still "rediscovering" themselves, and Hetfields vocals were pretty cringeworthy at that point, you'd be better off listening to any of the many other live recorded versions of these tracks, and there are plenty of them.

There is one random nugget of joy however. James Hetfield: "I forgot the fucking words!". Haha! Brilliant.

I won't dwell on this one too much. If you're a loyal Metallica fan then this belongs in your collection. However, if you didn't like 'St. Anger' (so basically, everyone), this EP really isn't worth getting, and the live tracks certainly won't give you any incentive.
