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

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!

This one and Garage inc are the lastest insalments tomy collection and i must say i still think they got it right. now i've been listening tometallica since the begining. they were a little ruff when they started (what band wasnt) but they have gotten better over the years..THE ONLY RESONS WHY SOMEONE WOULD NOT LIKE THIS ALBUM ARE: 1. they aren't a honist to god metallica fan. or 2. they just dont like metallica all together. well someone doing a review for amazon said that their sell outs. "yes we sell out...every night and every seat in the house" jason newsted, nov. 1998. this is one of metallica finest. since metallica's "black album" they have had a new producer, Bob Rock. he has help bringthe " HEAVY " " DEEP CRUNCH" sound back into metallicas ring. this album has not realy ben accepted by many people becase "they cut there hair" and " they have gone alternative " or what ever. well you know what i have to say to those people. "YOU DON'T LISTEN TO ENOUGH METALLICA!!" this so called "new" sound has been with metallica since master of puppets. there is no real change to their music i say.....BOTTOM LINE: if you like metallica, buy it. i think it was worththe money just like any album thatbears the METALLICA name.FROM a "from the begining" metallica fan.....David Stephens

After listening to the Load and Reload albums, I've come to the conclusion that they are exactly the same use Use your Illusion I and II from Guns N Roses.
There is some excellent material on both Load and Reload. On this CD for example, "Fuel", "The Memory Remains", "The Unforgiven Part II", etc...all excellent. But like the Guns N Roses set, there is enough material to make any listener unsatisfied. Some filler, and sometimes you'll be saying wtf was that. Therefore, your better off burning a CD of the best songs from Load and Reload.

FUEL - a nice starter, lyrics are sub-par, but still kicks ass. 9.3/10
DEVILS DANCE - a very mediocre song, the bass is very well done though 8.8/10
THE MEMORY REMAINS - alot of people frown apon this one, but the truth is it is a excellent preformance on all parts with a great intro 9.9/10
THE UNFORGIVEN II - unforgiven 1 and 2 have lots of similiarities, in the ways they both blow everyone away. 10/10
BETTER THAN YOU - a very fast, strong song, the chorus nearly wrecks the song. 9.8/10
SLITHER - not a very good song. 6.2/10
CARPE DIEM BABY - nice song, sort of a disapointment though. 7.7/10
BAD SEED - another mediocre song. 7.4/10
WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE - a masterpiece from the head of jason newsted, this song is different for the better this time 8.8/10
PRINCE CHARMING - nice riffs, nothing more 7.9/10
LOW MAN'S LYRIC - very slow nice song and relaxing (most of you might not want that in a metallica song) 8.5/10
ATTITUDE - heavy and fast. 8.1/10
FIXXXER - nice closer, not as good as previous ones though 7.5/10

Oh well, First I wanna say that Reload is much better than Load, whatever you can think about it. The songs are not what they've done best, but it still a nice cd, when you get tired of all of the previous ones (I can listen kill 'em all up to black album often in a week, so sometimes I get tired)
Fuel: 9.5/10 (Really nice song but.. the lyrics..??)
The memory remains: 9.5/10 (Great but WHAT THE HELL IS THIS ANNOYING VOICE?? Oh my god! I could have strangled the woman who is ''signing'' near the end.. SHE IS SO TIRESOME!)
Devil's Dance: 8/10 (Not that good, not that bad)
The unforgiven 2: 10/10 (Best song on this album, it's a nice following of the first one.)
Better than you: 9/10 (Great)
Slither: 9.5/10 (I like this song)
Carpe diem baby: 9.5/10 (Really nice song)
Bad seed: 9/10 (Great but less than Slither and Carpe diem baby)
Where the wild things are: 9.5/10 (Like it !!! Clap Clap to Newsted (I don't know if you noticed, but I'm crazy of Newsted, he's my idol, so bad that he left Metallica))
Prince charming: 8/10 (Medium)
Low man's lyric: 9/10 (Reaaaaallllyy slow but still good! (Hetfield was certainly very very very LOW when he wrote that song))
Attitude: 9.5/10 (Great great great! Why they did not end up with that nice track?? *Suppose I say I'm never satisfied*)
Fixxxer: 9.5/10 (I like it, the lyrics are pretty nice)
