Great Album, Metallica is unstoppable!! Even though the guitar riffs are somewhat slower, they still rock. Forget all those people that say new metallica sucks! It may not be as good as there old stuff, but it still kicks a**!!!

This is probably thier best album that they put out compared to the early ones thier music has got alot better and more quality sounding over the years the guitars on the album are excellent and I think that the way kirk hammett playes metallica will never go out of style

I dont think this album is as good as the classics like "Master Of Puppets" but still i can listen this more "rock"-style album. The songs vary from OK to boring. I can listen this for example as background music when driving a car. Few of the songs on this record are better than that in my opinion.

Before there was Reload, there was Load. This is either the most hated or loved Metallica album out their. Its definetly the softest, but its predecesor was much better. Fighting brutal criticism and zany stompboxex, Metallica makes an album with their "softer" side. Although most people compare this album to "reload" I think that is unfair. This album is not as good, period. It is still a step up, musically, from their "Kill em all" days, and an obvious change of style. If you are willing to give the "new" metallica a chance, don't buy this album, get Re-load instead. This is possibly Metallica's worst album. I do like "king nothing" though.
