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

By Mike London TOP 100 REVIEWER

LOAD, it appears, is the true litmus test of Metallica's career. This is the album where it was tremendously popular with a lot of the grunge listeners, dominated the charts in 1996, and had heavy radio rotation. LOAD brought in a lot of new fans for Metallica (this reviewer included), but is still highly controversial as it abandoned much of Metallica's earlier trademark sound from the 1980s, and a lot of people stopped caring about the boys after this one. But this album is not without precedent in the Metallica canon.

The BLACK ALBUM, LOAD's predecessor from 1991, is often seen as the true turning point in Metallica's career. Taking their progressive metal and incredibly complex songwriting (to the point it was difficult to replicate the music on stage) to its breaking point or zenith on the masterpiece ... AND JUSTICE FOR ALL, Metallica pared back their sound, and ultimately became more commercial sounding. MTV picked up on the BLACK ALBUM's songs, and featured them in heavy rotation. While the BLACK ALBUM disappointed some of the band's fan base, without a doubt the album helped move the band into the mainstream of rock, and ultimately greatly added to Metallica's fanbase.

While some of Metallica's long time fans were somewhat uneasy with this subtle change in the band's musical direction, by the time 1996 came around the unease metamorphosed into full-blown hostility. And it's all due to this album.

LOAD completely changed Metallica's sound, and, for a lot of long time fans, for the worst. Gone are the pyrotechnic solos, complex songwriting, and thrash metal mentality that carried their first four albums into the annals of rock and roll legend. The band cut their hair, started writing songs more like alternative rock, and reached out to a new fan base.

3.0 out of 5 stars An honest review June 2 2004
By Matt
Format:Audio CD
Now, I know that Metallica may never go back to Lightning/Puppets years, mainly because Hetfield has now lost his young thrash voice, but it still is a last shine before coming back out with the awful "ReLoad", and then the EXCELLENT "Garage Inc." and then "S&M", before now coming out with the unfortunately horrendous "St. Anger"(Shame that only 4 songs are tolerable).
Now, Ain't My B*tch is a rather pointless song, WAS FOUR OF THE FIVE YEARS OF MAKING THE ALBUM, SPENT ENTIRELY ON THE LYRICS?! If it was, then it would be a complete WASTE! I'd rather just skip ReLoad and place Fuel in that spot.
On to a better song, 2x4. Above average, yet still unsatisfying. The House That Jack Built isn't a very good song, because it DOES tend to drag on (well, what wouldn't at 6:38?).
Now we get to the Fantastic 4. Until It Sleeps is an excellent song, despite the very strange beginning, still an amazing song. Heading into King Nothing(my favourite song on the album), a very good song, especially live, with an addictive chorus.
Hero Of The Day, is the 2nd best of these 4, (Next to King Nothing of course), and Jason Newsted really delivers at the start. Now, Bleeding Me is a good song, but at 8:17, it does drag on.
Cure, Poor Twisted Me and Wasting My Hate are just throwaways and just aren't noticable enough.
Mama Said is a country ballad, and a good one at that. Thorn Within is another snoozefest.
Ronnie and Outlaw Torn however, are very excellent for the 2 final cuts, Ronnie sounding the most country-like, and Outlaw Torn the longest at 9:48(incidentally just 60 nano-seconds behind "To Live Is To Die" from Justice).

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"

Metallica's Load produced the top 10 single "UNtil it sleeps" on Billboard's Hot 100 and Metallica finally achieved top 40 success in the U.S. Metallica's Load is a great metal album. Metallica once again delivers a classic metal album.
