Product Description


With Load, Metallica takes a dramatic left turn with their music, continuing in the direction suggested by Metallica, their previous album. The songs on Load have groove; they're slower, with far fewer of the lightning-fast riffs that have been Metallica's trademark since their inception. While songs like "Ain't My Bitch" and "Wasting My Hate" are up-tempo and full of the vitriol one would expect from the quintessential heavy metal band, "2 X 4" is hard rock with a blues beat, "Hero of the Day" sounds positively mainstream, and "Mama Said" is an actual, honest-to-god ballad. While some diehard fans may find this mix unappealing, there's plenty to like about this album, including its laid-back, rhythmic orientation, and James Hetfield's characteristic growl tempered by his growing maturity as a vocalist. -- Genevieve Williams

how can the people say that load n re-load are "sell outs" this load n reload are awsome albums. and i know its not like ther old heavy thrash days but its still really good. now i personaly love the old days. but load and reload are more mature n goes into deeper lyrics. james sings really well n this album. cant beat it. who ever says there a true metallica fan and don't like load n reload then i dont think your a true tallica fan. all the true tallica fans love this album. im a hudge fan of there old stuff and there new stuff. i love both sides of metallica. there my favourite band in the world! my fav songs are "the house jack built,hero of the day,king nothing,mama said and thorn within" really well thought out songs. and the whole album is well thought out to. but this is the grown up metallica who thinks that its time to have a change in the music buisness. and thats no problem there great grown up n child like. the lyrics n this album are deep. much more better than the lyrics n the old days. for the people who thinks metallica sold out well your wrong ur. u guys are the sell outs who think they "sold out"

2.0 out of 5 stars Metallica doing Country and Blues? Whoa man.... July 16 2004
Format:Audio CD
(Actual Rating-2.5 Stars)
Load(1996). Metallica's Sixth Album.
After the Massive Success of Metallica(AKA The Black Album), Metallica fans were expecting another masterpiece from the Thrash Gods, Metallica. In many ways, Load was the exact opposite of what everyone was expecting. Metallica decided to drop all but a microscopic amount of their Thrash roots, instead blending Heavy Metal, Alternative Rock, and even Blues in many places. Many fans said Metallica's new direction was a good thing, and other people considered it a terrible thing. No Matter what you think, 'Load' was extremely sucessful, reaching Top 5 on the Billboard Charts, and spawning such Modern Rock hits as "Until It Sleeps", "King Nothing", "Hero Of the Day", and "Bleeding Me". So was Load a step in the right direction, or a step in the wrong direction? I would have to agree with the latter, and read on to find out why-
Track Ratings-
'Load' starts off with "Ain't My Bitch" and "2x4", which, while having stormy riffs, confrontational vocals, and bluesy solos from Hammett, seem generic because of sloppy writing and repetitiveness. "The House That Jack Built", starts slow, and unfortuneatly, never picks up, making it seem unfinished. Good lyrics, but there's a horrifying "Noisemaker" solo here! NO! The best stretch of 'Load' starts with "Until It Sleeps", a catchy ballad that gets very hard during the chorus. Musicianship is Top-Notch here! Then comes my favorite song on 'Load', "King Nothing", Metallica at their best! Hammett's dark riff slowly builds up to the insane chorus, where Hetfield's shouts of "And Your Crown Means Nothing!" force you to bang your head! Great musicianship!

2.0 out of 5 stars The last Metallica album I got July 6 2004
By Alan
Format:Audio CD
Let me start out by saying the Metallica HAS EVERY RIGHT to play whatever kind of music they want to. That being said, let me also say that I have every right not to like it. Everyone is entitled to their own tastes and opinions, and I simply do not like this album. It's not about them changing their style, it's about the end product, and I don't care much for this music.
On another note, music can bring back memories for me: I can hear a certain song and instantly recall a time and place in my past -- maybe you're the same way. A lot of music brings back good memories for me, but this brings back some bad ones: the hot summer of 1996, living in a crummy apartment with my girlfriend (now wife), and the engine in my beautiful 1984 Firebird on its last legs.
Just one more thing: does anyone else find it ironic that a band that supposedly hates being labeled chose to name themselves METALlica?
If you're looking for some good Metallica, I recommend "Master Of Puppets" or "Ride The Lightning".

5.0 out of 5 stars True fans care less June 28 2004
Format:Audio CD
Ok Load is a change yea i'll admit that but you got to remember something...If you're a true Metallica fan you would care less about the difference. Theyw ere gone on tour for 5 years for black album no wonde rit's a difference. If I were James I would be like "Yea let's make this album so we can go see our familes."That probably what they were thinking. I've noticed, if you like old metallica and your not a true fan... YOU RAG ON EVERY NEW ALBUM AFTER BLACK ALBUM!!!!! Well that's not the point of this so....
Hero of the day, my girlfriend doesn't like metallica yet thats her favorite song, hmmm whats that tell you? That change is suppose to happen. Haircuts dont make a f***ing difference, if I grew my hair out would I be liek old Metallica? Aint my B**ch is a good song to, the ryhmes and the beat you can't beat it, as goes for Ronnie, story about a guy who kills everyone hmmmm. Overall There are too many good songs to name.
After all the ragging unless you are a die hard metallica fan like me, you will liek this albuma nd if you don't please don't say your a metallica fan please.
