Metallica Some Kind of Monster

Some kind of rip off is more like it. The title track is off St. Anger from last year, but they’ve added live tracks of some good songs, but that sucks even more. Probably the worst set of live songs done by any band that has been released. Then you get the edit version of "Monster.” What the hell can you do with another version of a shitty song? The album is the soundtrack to the new Metallica reality film, showing the boo-hoo bad times they had while making their last record. Words hurt, but not as much as the crap they insist on releasing. In the end, it’s a washed up band trying whatever they can to get back in the spotlight. (Elektra)
