Image of Metallica


Since their inception in 1981, Metallica have gone from an underground heavy-metal band to one of the most successful acts in the world, with an intensely loyal if not rabid fanbase. Their relevance is undeniable as evidenced by their ability to sell out stadiums and arenas worldwide while continuing to sell millions of albums with each release -- a feat no other band in history has sustained ...

Product Description


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 multi-layered 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

5.0 out of 5 stars Blue Metallica 3 Mar 2013
Format:Audio CD
Much like the deeply underrated Load - Reload is or rather was, a new incarnation of Metallica, a dark, bluesy and polished beast. Gone are the Lovecraftian lyrics and long hair but the experimental Metallica still remains. Carpe Diem Baby and Slither have some serious (slow and grinding) metal riffs and Where The Wild Things Are is infused with great melody and atmosphere. Like Load, the production is amazing, all gloriously deep bass pedals and full, thick and layered guitars. Whilst it may not be a classic as such, Reload is still an impressive rock album. After The Black Album there came more musical colour and different lyrical themes. Still heavy. Still unique. Still Metallica.

4.0 out of 5 stars The world's greatest band reinvent themselves 31 May 2003
By Greg
Format:Audio CD
If you want to buy this because you want more of the early 90's Metallica sound you will be disappointed.
If you approach this album realising this great band must reinvent themselves to stay alive there is much on offer. Fantastic playing, well thought out song structures and new sounds. If they had continued to pump out the same sort of songs that feature on the fantastic Master of Puppets album, Metallica would have become parodies of themselves and would no longer exist by now.
A very good album, the way forward. (But let's not forget the past)

3.0 out of 5 stars Good in parts 11 July 2005
By Nicko
Format:Audio CD
This album met with a huge amount of derision on it's release back in good old 1997 - seems like so long ago now. Looking back now, a lot of the criticism the record came in for was over the top. Most of it was based on the fact that Metallica had 'sold out'. This is surely nonsense as this record sold far less than those preceeding it. It would have been far safer for Metallica to have made another 'Black Album' - but the guys wanted to explore different musical influences. There are a lot of blues and 70s rock influences on this as compared to the speed metal of say 'Master of Puppets'. Some of it works, some of it doesn't - but I would definitely say it is an interesting record. The standout track for me is 'Unforgiven 2' - one of their most underated numbers

4.0 out of 5 stars Winding Down. 8 May 2001
By Jason
Format:Audio CD
Before I start to critcise the thoughts behind this album I'd just like to mention the fact that on this album there is enough good material for any other band to release it as a classic. The crunching riffs of "Fixxxer" and the broodiness of my fave on this album "Where the wild things are" show in essence the brilliant musical talent and rockin ability of messrs Hammett,Hetfield,Newsted and Ulrich. But this isn't "any other band". This is the band that bought us "One", "Master of Puppets", "Creeping Death", "No Remorse" (need I say more!) This album is remorse for battering us with thrash albums and indeed rock albums littered with classics. Rather like post Waters Pink Floyd this album unfortunately wreaks of "use all money earning formulas",prog rock rather than the meaty, pioneering stuff of the 80's. Good as it is, this is not Metallica as I think Newsted's departure proves.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top notch! 17 Jan 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Re-load is a fantastic album, unfortunately a lot of narrow minded idiots are outraged at Metallica releasing an album that isn't identical to what they were playing ten years ago. The Unforgiven II could have been an embarrassment, but is in fact a worthy sequel. From the power of Fuel to the gentle melodies of Low Man's Lyric, this album has it all! 'Tis proper!

5.0 out of 5 stars Re-Load rocks!!!!!! 18 Jun 2004
Format:Audio CD
I've been a Metallica fan for over 4 years, and I think Re-Load, along with Master of Puppets is the best Metallica album released. I think you find the only Metallica 'fans' who don't appreciate it are the 80's-only fans.
I say don't mock it until you try it!!!!!
Best track by far has to be Fuel then folowed by Bad Seed which is easily one of the best Riffs Metallica have produced in recent years....just a shame about some of the lyrics!!

Granted, this album isn't the same as the earlier, heavier and faster stuff like ride the lightning and master of puppets etc, but it is still a great album. it has a more dark sound to it and it is also an album which you really have to listen to cos there is just so much going on. Its not quite the metallica that we all know and love but its still a fantastic album

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it!!
I love this phase of Metallica. Heavy, bassy riffs are right up my street. This and 'Load' are my favourite albums of theirs, not a popular viewpoint among 'tallica fans.
