Much better than the album
1 December 2004 | by sk8triprSee all my reviews

The St. Anger Rehearsals DVD came free with the purchase of the St. Anger CD. It showcases the band performing all their songs from St. Anger in full in order. It is also includes new bassist Rob Trujillo, formerly of the Suicidal Tendencies and Ozzy Osbourne. Filmed in "Metallica HQ," there is a lot of Metallica banners hanging, a Canadian flag, and the head of Lady Justice from the "And Justice for All" cover, which sends off some good vibes and also reminds you who you're watching in case you're an idiot.

The sound quality on the DVD is very crisp and clean. The guitars are leveled better so you can hear more distinction between notes. The bass is actually turned up and you can hear it. Lars Ulrich's drum set (which many people complained about) is not overpowering like it is on the CD. This is the kit he used on the Madly In Anger World Tour, and you can clearly see that the "pinging" noise of the snare on the CD is because he does not have the ring to soften the snap of the snare, making it bearable.

The vocals aren't the best, but then again they aren't on the CD either. Even Kirk Hammett and Rob Trujillo do back up. The camera-work is fine, and they do run some old film or strobe effects through it at times to give it a garage feel, but occasionally the camera zooms in and out really fast and not even during fast parts, which is annoying. Overall, it's a great look at watching a legendary band rehearse for one of the first times with a new member and all-new material, and having fun doing it.
