OK, I know you're laughing at my rating, but since I want to be an objective reviewer, I'm not considering what Metallica was in the ?80s: I'm just considering the content of this album. And I'm going to show you that it is not as bad as it seems at first. Load is Metallica's longest work yet, clocking in at about 79 minutes, it is the band's first experimental production and it represents a turning point in the history of Thrash Metal. In fact, thousands of Metallica's early fans decided to abandon their idols after they heard this album and many of them still consider The Four Horsemen as a dead band. But what's wrong with Load? Why is it so awful, so bad, so terrible?

Unlike most people here, I don't care if it's dark or not or if it's menacing or brutal. Music is not about that and it shouldn't always be evil or melancholic to be good. I actually consider that to be stupid I mean who said evil and dreadful is cool and something the opposite is gay? if the music is good I rate it high. Load is not a crappy album, it has a lot of work in it (14 songs) but it's at most an average album. 6.5 is a good rating for it if you ask me. I'm not a big fan of Metallica although I have listened to their whole disco, I just pick a few songs from each album and actually non from their last 2. "Mama Said" is a good song, so is "Outlaw Torn" and "Bleeding Me" but that's it...

Exactly. If Metallica was a band from Europe their sound would be a lot different.

Europeans prefer their sterile overproduced pop garbage over music with groove and soul when it comes to commercial metal stuff.

I prefer the American (and British) approaches.


so you admit Brittan is not Europoe? When it comes to changes Europe has better possibilities, not Hollywood

Its a good album. While musically it might not be as strong but lyrically its in its best form. James Hetfield sounds genuinely depressed here.
