Product Description

Product Description

Over twenty million records sold in the U.S. alone. Sold-out tours worldwide. Zealously dedicated fans. A sound copied by many, matched by none. It all adds up to one simple fact: Metallica is the biggest band in the world. Period. Load is Metallica's first album of all-new music in five years and the follow up to the biggest-selling hard rock album of the '90s. Certified at 4 million units by the RIAA. (11/97)


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

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.

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.

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"

(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!
