The one track I wanted was well worth the penny I paid for the album.

Well my last review I wasn't completely fair as I didn't listen to this album that much. But recenlty I discorverd a song of theirs called Prince Charming which is such an awesome song, so I decided to givre the rest of the album a chance and what do you know it's another excellent album by Metallica.

Of course for this album you have to be open minded, now I am a fan of Heavy Metal(obsessed if you will) but I also really like blues rock, Country(if it's on I wouldn't want to destroy the cd or radio or anything) and I always know that on a lot of cds when you first listen to you might be dissapointed but you gotta give it a chance man.

Now onto this album I'd say the only filler here is Slither which is pretty lame as James's vocals are pretty unbearable, but the rest of the album is excellent some songs better then others and some just plain rock. My favourites from this album are Fuel, The Unfogiven II, Better Than You, Carpe Diem Baby, Where The Wild Things Are, Prince Charming(one of my personal faves), Low Mans Lyrics & Attitude(one of my personl faves). A good mix of genres here like Low Man's Lyrics is very country(and great) and Attitude and Prince Charming are great ac/dc type rockers.

Overall this album is great for a Metallica fan who aint so upset about them being so called sellouts and who just likes great music. Enjoy!!! I know it aint a great review but it's a great album and a great band! ! !

first off it really angers me to hear people saying "this isnt metallica", well it is you idiot you just dont like where they are going,but its their choice,and they still got your money,its not like you dont get the chance to hear where they are going with the new material before you buy the thing.

now then re-load,its good in places,these places are at the beginning,it then pretty much all goes wrong from track 6 onwards.

even the good stuff is not thrash,got that NOT A THRASH ALBUM. you want thrash go buy slayer or the haunted. this is metallica doing what they want because they can,and being very inventive for their own good and i respect them for it,but it doesnt mean that i have to like all of it.

for the most part i do,fuel,the memory remains,devils dance(my personal fave) and the unforgiven II are all great, the rest are just a bit forgetable, and by metallica`s own very high standards they are a bit sub-standard.

but approach with an OPEN MIND and you may enjoy this album,buy the rest,i mean like all their other gear first and leave this one till last as it is the runt of the litter.

Being a massive Metallica fan i have always given their albums a fair chance.I began listening in 199O and "Justice" is my favourite. I adore their old stuff but i am also very fond of "Metallica" and after a few listens, i began to love Load. Same thing however can not be said about Reload. Even to this day(i bought it the day it came out and always listen to it from time to time) i find it to be Metallicas weakest album. Fuel, The Memory Remains, Bad Seed and Low Mans.. are fine songs,but the rest is fillers to me.Even Lars has hinted that he wishes this album never saw light of day. its not all bad of course but for the first time in 14 years, the Tallica boys lost their concentration.

All of these old Metallica fans are complaining about the change from metal to rock. I enjoy their metal work too, but this album knocked the other ones flying. At last Metallica have gained hearts and decided to write songs that use proper chords and have meaning to them. And because of this, they've actually decided to learn to play their instruments properly. Long ago, Metallica weren't considered a proper band, but "Reload" has put them into competition with the big boys ie. Aerosmith and Guns N' Roses, and whereas they don't manage to get past either of these, at least they're putting up a decent fight now.

The title of this review refers not to the fact that Metallica's music has become softer and more 'mainstream' (I like bands to have different influences), but because of what could have come from the Load sessions. Both this and Load have some absolutely brilliant tracks worthy of inclusion amongst the finest Metallica songs ever. My problem is that Load could have been better than the Black Album, had it been a single album (OK, maybe a double album). Instead, it is two with tracks that you skip every time. I am assuming that this was for the money. Shame.

Not even as good as Load, which, let's face it, wasn't that great. Compared with Metallica's heyday albums - Ride the Lightening, Master of Puppets and bits of Justice - its washed out, radio-focused pap that doesn't do much or go anywhere. Jimmy, Lars and the sidekicks were obviously hugely influenced by the renaissance of guitar music in the '90s, but if you want a great example of '90s rock, buy Alice in Chains' Facelift, Dirt or Jar of Flies. All three albums are in a different league to what you will here on this disc. Fans of Metallica: stick with the original great albums...
