  • listened to Hardwired for the first time last night. Maybe I wasn't in the right headspace, or maybe since I'm not really a metal guy anymore, but it just sounded a lot of the same. one track kind of blended into another. Then again, I'm like the only person on the planet that actually liked St Anger though. :lol:
    St. Anger is really underrated.
    Doesn't the criticism pretty much boils down to:

    1. No solos on the album
    2. Lars drum sound
    3. "My lifestyle determines my death style"

    yes on 1 and 2. #3 always makes me laugh when I'm singing along to it. kind of like "rocking horse of time" does.

    St. Anger would be a lot better if it weren't for the crappy production all around including Lars' trash can snare.  They aren't terrible songs.  I haven't really heard any of the songs live so maybe they sound better that way.

    I don't know what it is, but I rather enjoy St. Anger besides some of the cringe worthy production. Frantic is one of my favorites songs of theirs period. I can always hear that guitar riff ripping away when I think of that song. Shoot Me Again is killer too. I listened to it a lot and I remember it came out right before I caught my first PJ show that summer. Good memories. Load is still their best album post 1990. It was a lot more solid than the Black album overall. I remember the let down of flipping to side B on that cassette.
    It's a hopeless situation...

    Think the Black ticket is just normal GA. 

    Edit: it is GC, my bad. Great ticket option.
