Exactly. It just took Metallica a few years longer to recover from their "black sheep" album. The World Needs a Hero was a good recovery album, IMO. I wonder if Metallica will be releasing an album in 2010, since it seems "coincidental" that Megadeth released United Abominations last year and Metallica released Death Magnetic this year. I mean, it's already been hinted by Dave that a new Megadeth album is gonna be released next year...I'm psyched for it.

The pingy drums (and general overall sound quality) on St. Anger I think irritate me more than anything else about the album. They may have started out as a garage band, with shitty sound quality, but they aren't one now. Purposefully ruining the sound quality to somehow try to sound more "true", was just a really shitty decison in my book.
I've only heard a little of St. Anger, myself not being a big Metallica fan. What I did hear was pretty godawful. Risk? Eh, it's got a few worthwhile songs on it. "Crush 'Em", "Prince of Darkness", and "Insomnia" stand out to me. I can actually relate to Insomnia, which makes it my personal fave, and the only song off of Risk that I can actually sing the lyrics to (fairly well). As for Metallica, I like "Whiplash", "Master of Puppets", and "Insanitarium".
