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.
Well, I loved St. Anger too. When listening to it, I imagine myself with the band in a garage. I can understand why so many people hate the album, but I like it. Sure, there's no solo, but Metallica made so many great albums that they can experience something else for a change. I also like Load/ReLoad. In fact, I love every albums, I think that I can only say about Metallica, Iron Maiden and Megadeth.
