  • Brilliant!

    By TaylorMesa
    I understand the malevolence for this album by those who only want another version of Master of Puppets, but this has some of James musicianship on display. So many great songs which showcase James talents beyond speed picking.
  • The Hero Of The Day

    By Pkuelz
    First off, I really love this album. Sure, it may not be the best album ever made, but it is better than most pop trash. Load by Metallica features 14 songs, in a running time of 79 minutes. Released to the world in June of 1996, the album debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 chart. It received a mixed reaction, but was still very successful, selling around five million copies. It was fewer than the Black Album, but still a massive success. Many fans were disappointed in the shift in direction, as they set speed aside, and became a hard rock band with the image of alternative rock. The album raised more eyebrows when the band headlined the usually alternative Lollapalooza. They cut their hair, wore makeup, and became somewhat abstract. The album cover is blood and sperm mixed together, which sometimes grosses me out when I look at it. This is like trying a new food. You have to eat it a few times before you develop a taste for it. With rockers like Until It Sleeps, Hero Of The Day, King Nothing, The Outlaw Torn, The House Jack Built and Bleeding Me, you will have a good Metallica album. I give it a 5/5 because it’s different, and I like it when bands experiment with their sound. If you don’t like the album at all, get Until it Sleeps and you’re set for this album. However, I highly recommend you buy it, because if you like something different, you will like this.
  • Where’s your crown KING NOTHING!

    King Nothing is one of my favorite songs by Metallica
  • Not my favorite but...

    Sleeps is awesome
  • Underrated

    By EpicChrisDudeWhoIsAwesome
    This album doesn't get enough love. Sure, it isn't the black album or kill em all, but it's still great. This album took a more slow metal/90's Grunge approach that while it wasn't as good as the speedmetal that Metallica is known for, it still works.
  • Easily one of Metallica's best

    By LuciaJustus
    I would say that this album is proof that Metallica could change music styles without completely messing it up. Unlike a lot of bands who couldn't change musically and were stuck in the past.
  • Not Metallica's best but certainly not their worst

    By Smythe 69
    I like the different approach they took with both Load and Reload. I can understand how some fans dislike both these albums because there isn't any thrash, but for me I like the variety in their sound. I still like their older stuff but I like how it's slow metal and still sounds like Metallica. If you're a metal fan who likes a little variety I think Load is a good album for you.

    Great album!
  • A Misunderstood masterpiece.

    By Jeff Noz
    At the time of release the shock of their image change and different sounds alienated their close minded, one dimensional metal audience. This album was a departure from thrash and welcomed blues and hard rock influences into the fold. Over time many people who once dismissed this album have grown to love it, and it withstands the rest of time even better than some of their seminal work.
  • Misunderstood

    By Xenon647
    This is one of Metallica's most underrated albums. It may not be Master Of Puppets or Ride The Lightning but I still consider it to be a good album. My favorite tracks: 2 X 4, The House Jack Built, Until It Sleeps, King Nothing, Hero Of The Day, Bleeding Me, Ronnie, and The Outlaw Torn.
