I happened to see a couple of those(RtL, self titled and AJFA)in store over the weekend. I passed on them as I didn't have the funds right now.

The Metallica Vinyl Club is back for 2022.

I'm not sure about them switching it over to 12" vinyl, though it will potentially let them include more songs, bigger artwork, and larger swag. I really liked the 7" singles from the first year, as they're kind of a lost art.

With shipping, it looks to be about $90 per year. But I'll sign up again. These are limited editions and hold their value.

Yeah I'm not into vinyl but the last 2 releases would have been worth it the first year. "I Disappear" one and the "Chris Cornell" one.

Master of Puppets
The Memory Remains
Where Ever I May Roam
Dirty Window (lol)

Bold to include a St Anger song. I don't think they played a single one when I saw them on the Death Magnetic tour. I don't think I will ever understand how they all listened to that album and thought "yup this is it". With LuLu you can at least say they were playing with a perceived legend and it probably clouded their judgement. St Anger is all theres though. I actually enjoyed that song they released on the MI2 soundtrack in 2000, wouldn't have minded if the entire album sounded like that.

Re: The all things METALLICA thread!

I was at Lolla.

I don't know if this made the Hulu edit, but before Dirty Window, James took an audience poll on St Anger.

When it didn't go the way he hoped, he said "Let's give it some love, man. Give it another chance, OK? This was the album that did not get the chance."

After the song, he said "Dirty Window from St Anger... whether you like it or not. No judgement."

Re: The all things METALLICA thread!

I have always liked St. Anger. It reminds me of listening to someone's diary set to really angry music. I also like Lulu so what do I know?

Re: The all things METALLICA thread!

I just relistened to it (mostly because its been awhile and I forgot which one Dirty Window was). Drums aside, my biggest grips about the album remain. Not just no solos, but really uninspired musicially. Bass just doesn't stand out at all. The lyrics seem very lazy. Like absurdily lazy. Not only do they sound lazy, James sounds bored singing them ("we the people, are we the people?", you've got to be kidding me). I've never seen the Some Kinda Monster doc, maybe it explains their thought process behind this album. I know they were working alot of things out internally, which usually band strife makes for good material. This album comes off as a filler to fullfill a contract obligation.

I think of the more interesting things about this album is that it doesn't seem to be influenced by the metal sounds of that time which were Nu-Metal transitioning to Metalcore. This albums sounds like a blend of their Load Hard Rock era with the speed of maybe Ride the Lightning's Thrash sound. Even Slayer fell victim to Nu-Metal's influence with Diabolus in Musica. On another note, don't think I'm shitting on anyone that likes St Anger as Diabolus in Musica was actually my intro to Slayer and I enjoy the album and most Slayer fans detest that album.

You should watch the documentary. Bob Rock played bass on St Anger, as well.

Re: The all things METALLICA thread!

Yea maybe I should because I thought Robert Trujillo played on the album haha. Just looked it up and it appears he toured the album. That explains alot then about how the bass sounds because I liked his stuff on Death Magnetic and Hardwired

Re: The all things METALLICA thread!

There are also various videos on YouTube of Trujillo playing the St. Anger stuff in rehearsals with the band before they toured. The sound is appreciably better than the album sound as far as drums go. If I'm listening to biscuit tins I want biscuits dammit.
But as far as the songs go it's still a pretty shitty album IMO.Then again I'm almost 57 and grew up watching them in the early/mid 80's so my judgment is somewhat clouded.

Re: The all things METALLICA thread!

I came along with the Black Album, and like every one of their releases. Except St. Anger. Every few years I try it again, and still can't get into it.

Re: The all things METALLICA thread!

I jumped on board when Master of Puppets came out, so of course I think the Black Album was the beginning of the end for the band. I kind of like the title track of St. Anger, and Frantic, but could never get into the rest of the album. Not only because of the poor production, but also that most of the songs seem boring to me, especially with no guitar solos.

Re: The all things METALLICA thread!

The first album I heard was And Justice For All, the first one I owned was Load, so I never had a problem with the "mainstream" Metallica. I can't get in to St. Anger, either. I give it a new chance every couple of years, but it just sounds like an angry kid hammering on pans and pots.
I saw them twice in concert, once as part of the big four, but the other 3 really sounded terrible, with Slayer that's no surprise though.

Reading that, I just realized that I haven't seen Metallica in concert since 1990 (co-headlining with Aerosmith, with The Black Crowes and Warrant opening, how's that for a lineup?). I also saw them the year before that with Queensryche opening (who were touring Operation: Mindcrime, an album I still love), that was one of my favorite concerts ever.

Re: The all things METALLICA thread!

I've only seen Metallica once I doubt I'll see them again, mostly because the ticket prices are just too high. I will say, a Metallica crowd is very interesting. It was a clear division of people who are black and and before and black album and after, and not many of those people cared about the openers. I remember Lamb of God and Gojira were the openers and the crowd was dead for them. I couldn't believe it, arguably both bands were at their peak at that point. I also remember one drunk asshole who spent the entire concert between songs screaming play Breadfan

Re: The all things METALLICA thread!

Last time i seen them was new years eve 99 in Detroit. I was a huge huge fan. Then Jason quit. They treated him like dog shit. Then st anger came. Then the cry baby , some kind of monster came out. Theyve been a different band ever since. I still loved them after the black album came out, and the load albums. But after Jason left, i left.

I started getting back into it a few years ago. I mainly listen 83-i disappear. I do watch all the live stuff they post.Rob will be in the band 20 years next year, and i feel he still doesn’t fit.(jason live, is sorely missed) I cant stand this version of James. Its like hes a cheesy motivational speaker now, or hes gonna break out in prayer. Miss angry James.

Re: The all things METALLICA thread!

I think Robert is awesome. Even when I watch the Some Kind of Monster doc and they show the auditions you can see how he was naturally going to be the one picked to be part of the band. He's got the presence and the chops. That's no dig on Jason since I first got into Metallica with Load and had to work my way backward to the beginning.

I re-watch the Live in Mexico City BD all the time, too.

I forgot how much I liked their covers album Garage Inc.
I think after Master and Lightning, it may be my 3rd favorite Metallica.

It's an underrated album. Most of the songs are really good. Itís Electric, Sabbra Cadabra, Turn the Page, Die, Die My Darling, Astronomy and Whiskey in the Jar are heavily featured on my spotify playlist and due to the album I got introduced to some of the originals I didn't know before.

It's my favorite 90's Metallica album, I thought most of the new covers were great, especially the Mercyful Fate medley.
