Product Description

Product Description

Following last year's quadruple platinum Load, Metallica RE-LOAD with a dozen (or so) new songs. Over twenty-five 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. Certified triple platinum by the RIAA. (11/98)

For many heavy metal fans, Metallica epitomizes the genre, especially for those listeners who remember the band's fast-and-furious 1983 debut, Kill 'Em All. As a result, their continued foray into a more stripped-down, laid-back sound with this album has met a mixed response. However, there's enough innovation and just plain strange stuff on this album to make it worth a listen. The creepy "The Memory Remains" is perfectly accentuated by Marianne Faithfull's backing vocals, and "Where the Wild Things Are" features the multilayered vocals and guitars that Metallica is famous for, albeit at about half their usual speed. The opening ("Fuel") and closing ("Fixxxer") tracks are especially strong, and intermixed with some slower, country-inflected tunes are the obnoxious rockers that made Metallica the long-running success they are. --Genevieve Williams

This album is horrible. I can't stand it. The only thing that makes it not so bad as ST Sucker is that it still has solos and that there is still drums instead of coffe and soda cans. It is not about the popular look of them. I have nothing against the haircuts. Everyone knows that when you press play that doesn't matter. It is not about all those photo shots or the MTV crap. It is about the way this sounds. We all know that bands explore different styles at a certain moment. Some get good results and some get bad. Since the Black Album Metallica showed that they didn't even explore. No speed, no killer riffs, no complicated solos. No intelligent MUSIC anymore. Long hair, beer, crazy metalhead fans, more beer, crazy conduct and more beer. That was Metallica but besides of that, Metallica was INTELLIGENT MUSIC. I mean Kill em All and specially Ride the Lighting with Master of Puppets was intelligent music. Good music. Complex. Fast, Slow, Heavy. Those are the words that come to your mind when you think about those albums. I'm not 38 years old guy that listen to Metallica since 1983. I'm actually 18 and I began listening to Metal like three years ago and I didn't even begin with Metallica like the mayority. I began with European Power Metal. I've heard all of Metallica's material and I love their old stuff. But this is just bad. I think that most of you know it but you don't want to admit it like others. What do you get here? Commercial sound? What is commercial sound? Is a hard question. The fact is that this album is enjoyed by the Linkin Park fans much more than by the "Old school" Metallica or Iron Maiden fans. This is hardly enjoyed by a Metalhead. To me, Reload gets 0.5 stars instead of 0 like ST Sucker. Mainly because of the solos. (...)

Reload (1997.) Metallica's seventh album.
As any Metallica fan knows, the band underwent a serious transformation when they reached the nineties. After touring for several years in support of their self-titled album, they got together and recorded their sixth album together. The band ended up with more material than they could fit onto a single album, so they leftovers got released on an album the following year. How does Reload measure up? Read on for my review.
The album starts strong, with the hard and heavy rocker Fuel. This is one of the band's better songs from the nineties, but it still doesn't hold a candle to their eighties stuff. In The Memory Remains, the band serves up what had potential to be an excellent song, but they ended up blowing this opportunity by featuring an old lady on backing vocals! The Unforgiven II is, other than a similar into, unrelated to 1991's The Unforgiven. This track is no ballad, but rather hard and heavy nineties rock. Devil's Dance and Better Than You are rockers worth mentioning as well, but not even they can save this album. Like I said, these tracks are nothing more than leftovers from the Load sessions. What you ultimately get here is songs like those from Load - only worse. That means that if you hated Load, you'll hate this one even more.
My final verdict is to buy this album ONLY if you're a die-hard Metallica fan. Also, listening to it before you buy may not be a bad idea. However, if you don't like the band's mid-late nineties material, this album WILL NOT change your mind. Once again - THIS IS FOR DIE HARDS ONLY!

I swear by god that the first time I heard this record I feel asleep, the second time I wanted to return it... the third time I was looking for my reciept so that I can in fact return it... and since I didn't found it, I just sold it at a local store. This album is everything Metallica shouldn't be:
Slow: Metallica used to play fast music to bang your head to and maybe even mosh to. Now we have all this power ballads and slow hard rock songs good for rock radio that are good to.... yawn.
Weak: No distortion and heavyness what so ever. The heaviest song on this album would be a slow pathetic ballad on a real METAL album.
Boring: other than Fuel and Low Man's Lyrics, all the songs sound the same. No changes, just the same song done with few different variations. can someone tell "carpe diem baby" from "Slither" or those from Load's songs? or even the black album's slow ones?
Just simply bad songwriting, I hope this album was just a whole bunch of left overs from load since they seriously suck, no matter what band would have made it, this songs are just plainly not good, and I do not think it was worth my money to be totally sincere.
Hightlights: The pictures and the artwork
Lowlights: yawn....

After promising for months during pre-release interviews that "Reload" would not be simply leftover material from "Load" (although the songs were written during the same sessions), the album eventually dropped to a misinformed public. "Reload" sounds like absolutely nothing else EXCEPT material that wasn't good enough for inclusion on the already spotty "Load" album.
The opening track, "Fuel", was one of the album's biggest hits and current live faves, but both lyrically and musically it finds Metallica sinking further and further into dimwitted neanderthal rock. The James Hetfield that used to pen such masterpieces as "Fade to Black" and "Blackened" is now reduced to such tripe as "Gimme fuel/Gimme fire/Gimme that which I desire/Oooh!" (how could that possibly have passed the drawing board stage?) Even though the song does boast what's indisputably one of the catchier riffs on the album, it's bar band simplicity and the blockheaded lyrics mar it beyond favor.
Of the other singles released from "Reload", "The Memory Remains" sounds like Metallica merely going through the motions, despite the fact that they've only been playing in this style for one album now. The "la la la" vocals by Marianne Faithfull are a horrendous misstep; I defy fans of the song to deny that they wouldn't prefer a version without Faithfull's contributions. As for the other big "hit", "The Unforgiven II" is nothing more than a crass attempt to cash in on the success of a far superior song.
