    load has some fantastic metallica songs
    aint my bitch
    bleeding me
    until it sleeps
    outlaw torn (one of my all time favorites)
    king nothing 
    hero of the day
    I went nuts at the Winnipeg show when King Nothing started. Love that song. 

    King Nothing is another one I really liked.  It took time to adjust to this album though, I won't lie.  Any diehard wasn't drinking the juice from this album.  It had a different sound from the previous albums and maybe the producer was to blame for that I'm sure.  He wanted "his" sound and not a Metallica sound, that was for sure.

    Load is fascinating. Not in their top five but a solid album. Reload I can't defend. Just can't. A few years ago I was a fair-weather fan and decided to listen to their albums start to finish and I was amazed that Reload was the only one I couldn't find a lot of high lights on. This band is knock out phenomenal from start to finish. I found the same with R.E.M. (although their last few were hard to swallow). Metallica is amazing, just flat out a great band - no matter the genre. And I do love Until it Sleeps, and adn the thrashing. It's all good. 
    98: St. Louis. 2000: Alpine. 2003: Chicago. 2006: Chicago Night 2, Milwaukee Night 1. 2007: Chicago (Lolla). 2009: Chicago 1 & 2. 2011: Alpine 1 & 2. 2013: Chicago & LA Night 1. 2016: Chicago 1 & 2. 2018: Chicago 1 & 2.

    That metallic drum in St Anger didn't make you want to jab pool sticks in your ears?

    Take that damn drum away and that album is wonderful, maybe a wee bit better mix on it too.  Down the highs a bit.

    Hardwired is a wonderful album to me.  It ticks the boxes for me.

    I fucking dug the shit out of St Anger just for the raw sound of it. Loved it. still do. it was like a metal album recorded like a punk album.

    Load has really grown on me over the years, love the way it sounds on vinyl. Gave St. Anger another shot last year and I think the combination of 2020 being a shit year and turning 40 made me appreciate what a mess it is lol. Reload….meh

    I'll have to revisit St Anger again.  I remember enjoying it but without the damn metallic drum.

    if you have the cd/dvd package, put on the dvd. it's their live rehearsals of the entire album. I actually like it better.
