St. Anger Revisited; Was it THAT BAD?

St. Anger Revisited; Was it THAT BAD?

March 17, 2022
#metallica #bobrock #larsurlrich
 
So when St. Anger came out, all I heard from everyone that I knew that had listened to it was that it was garbage. At the time, Metallica wasn't allowing any streaming. It wasn't on the radio and since I wasn't going to buy it I never listened to it.
 
Fast forward to a few weeks ago. I was thinking about movies that didn't do well when they first came out but went on to become cult classics and some, like John Carpenter's "The Thing" have gone on to be very well respected and highly influential. This made me think that their had to albums that followed a similar track.
 
For some crazy reason Metallica's St. Anger was the first album to pop into my head.   I took the time and finally listened to it and honestly  I am confused by all the hate.  Apparently however, I am in the minority. All it takes is a quick internet search to learn that  St. Anger, even all these years later is STILL very divisive, but is it REALLY THAT BAD?
 
So... of course the only way to settle this is do to a podcast about it! LOL!
 
On this week's Loudini Rock & Roll Circus we ask the question that's been on your mind for years, Metallica's St. Anger; is it REALLY that bad?
 
 
Topics covered:
 
 
 
Some of their heaviest rock since and justice for all
a return to longer songs...various tempos and sound
not perfect by any stretch of the imagination
looser guitar tone than fans are used to
elements of doom, grunge, djent
Kirk is terribly underused.
Understandable why TYPICAL Metallica fans would hate it
Very intense use of polyrhythms
good harmonies
Cliff Burton... will always be there bass player. Jason Newsted was always an outsider. -Bob Rock

From the day that they broke up, December 4, 1980, Led Zeppelin fans had been crying for a renunion. All through the 1980s their influence could be felt. Band's like Kingdom Come, Bonham, 80s era White Snake and several others helped to fill that void but never quite fit the bill for true Zeppelin fans. 
Then in the 1994 Jimmy Page and Robert Plant reunited for a series of shows which would be filmed by MTV and later released as the No Quarter album. 
This was a milestone in rock music. Fans finally had the spirit of Led Zeppelin back for at least a few years and in 1998 Page and Plant released an album of new material in almost 20 years called Walking into Clarksdale.

On this week's Loudini Rock and Roll Circus we will tell you the story behind Page & Plant's Walking Into Clarksdale; the Semi-Zeppelin reunion that took us all back to the glory days for a brief period in the 1990s

Topics covered:
https://www.thisdayinmusic.com
Tracks:
Heart in your hand... lonesome guitar
Most High... single...most zeppelin
Blue Train... tender ballad about robert's deceassed son 
Please Read the Letter... sounds like a b -side from Led IV... grammy song later with Alisson Krauss
Walking into Clarksdale... something for the AAA crowd
Golden Horse... Now were getting somewhere... good riff. cool "cinematic" string session ala Kasmir. although a little inconsistent with low key verses
When the world was young... slow
Burning Up... YES another rocker... still not the Immagrant Song or Whole Lotta Love... but I'll take it even though a bit mid tempo
When I was a Child... left over from one of robert's solo albums
House of Love... cool distorted drum sound... adventurous production and chord changes... but does it work?
Sons of Freedom... interesting production and choices by page... but needs more energy from Plant. most aggressive track... should have opened the album
Shinging in The Light... nice song ...maybe a left over from IV or Presence
Conclusion... would have been better as a Robert Plant album with Jimmy Page as a guest
Steve Albini
