IMO, a "vocalist" who feels the need to digitally alter their voice, isn't much of a vocalist. Music is pretty good, though. If you don`t believe the vocals are altered, listen to Enter Sandman off of the Metallica "Black Album". The low, gruff-sounding "We`re off to Never-Never Land" heard in parts of the song is actually Newsted, unaltered. Furthermore, for whatever reason he actually left Metallica, he came off as an absolute poser. He left because "the lifestyle was affecting his health and family life negatively", then went right out and joined another band. What a cop-out.

Not bad. Kind of vocally flat but he works within his limits and does it well. Besides, how can you hate on the one guy out of Metallica that saw the sinking ship and knew what to do (other than Cliff I mean)?
