 Load (album) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Load is the sixth album by American heavy metal band Metallica, released in 1996.
Adding to this was a series of "Calvin Klein"-style photographs in the album's booklet, showing the band swilling brandy and smoking cigars while fashionably dressed, all in a dramatic departure from their usual street image.
While this album stands as the symbolic point of departure from Metallica's roots, and will forever be the album that "killed" the band in the eyes of many fans, it also simultaneously forged a replacement fan base that has been just as faithful (or fanatical) in the years since.

 topfive_reviews: Album Review: Metallica - Load
Load is a dark album, one that owes plenty of influence to melancholic Southern rock, blues, and even a little country...
That seems like enough flaws to drag the album down to a low score, but considering the CD is packed to the absolute limit without the potential risk of skipping (seventy-eight minutes and fifty seven seconds), there's more than enough time to make up for it...
Load doesn't suck because of Metallica's fashion or legal issues, Load sucks because of James Hetfield's voice.

 Load by Metallica CD
LOAD may seem like a departure from the Metallica "norm," but it's actually what the band has been doing all along: writing well-crafted songs without a regard for what others think.
The one song on a later album of theres i actually liked is overkill on garage inc, but apart from that, its all bad, now its the kind of thing kids will watch on mtv and think theyre metal heads for.

 Metallica - Satan Stole My Teddybear
The album opens with what sounds like twelve-string guitars backed with a bass and what might be a harpsichord engaging in a baroque showpiece...which erupts into a messy, almost incoherent piece of thrash-metal.
The tracks were generally composed in the same period of time, the feel of the albums is similar, and that way, all the damn filler material would not be needed.
If Load and Reload were released as a double album with the filler material slashed and replaced by a few good metal songs, I'd give it a higher rating than I'd give either album as it exists on its own.

Load was pretty decent as well, though I could have done without some of the songs.
I really think the double album thing with Load would have made this album better, partly because it would have never seen the light of day as a separate release.
And I have to say that this album, which was, let’s face it, a selection of B-SIDES, had one great monumental moment for me, and it stemmed from my intoxication and the poor lighting in my bedroom.

With as much difference each Metallica album had been from one another, an album like Metallica was almost as direct reaction to the others instead of trying to follow a formula for success.
Whereas on previous albums the first song through the last song were pretty much conceived in on those terms, the new stuff flowed out.
Perhaps it was the five years of living with the Black album that allowed the band to relax the parts of them that did not always allow parts of the Black album to gel that way.

Brian Burton) takes a cappella tracks from Jay-Z's The Black Album and composes new beats for each song using only samples from the Beatles' "White Album." The result, the aptly titled Grey Album, is an ingenious hip-hop record that sounds oddly ahead of its time.
Even though DM is limiting his sounds to the two source albums, Grey is hardly a straightforward mash-up record.
The album will not be sold commercially, but copies are in circulation via the Web -- at press time, representatives for Jay-Z and the Beatles could not be reached for comment.

 [No title]
Whether you loved Metallica's 1996 album, "Load," or hated it, you cannot deny that it was a majorly successful release--it has sold more than 4 million copies since its release and solidified the band as one of the premiere forces on the music scene.
The tight songwriting and precision performances that highlighted such works as 1991's "Metallica" and 1989's "...And Justice for All" (which are dissimilar albums, but both feature these characteristics) seemed to be put on the backburner in favor of a looser, more "alternative" feel and more experimental arrangements.
However, to find what the band is all about, look no further than the trio of albums from 1979 to 1981, "Overkill," "Bomber" and "Ace of Spades." These are stacked top to bottom with the ballsiest rock music you ever will hear, and they still stand up today, more than 15 years later.

 New Kingdom : Heavy Load - Listen, Review and Buy at ARTISTdirect
One of the dozens of hip-hop groups signed in the early-'90s alt-rap feeding frenzy, this little-known duo is probably most notable for its seminal work with producer Scott Harding (aka Scotty Hard), who went on to work with artists like the Gravediggaz and Prince Paul.
And the freaky, funky effects of "Are You Alive" and the extremely goofy "Calico Cats" are so damn effective, you wonder why they bothered with the grating shtick of some of the earlier songs in the first place.
Ultimately, Heavy Load shows an awful lot of promise, but all too often New Kingdom fails to deliver.

But Load is a "good" not "great" CD like the previous 5.
Overall, I think 'Load' is a mixed bag, with "Until It Sleeps", "King Nothing", "Hero Of the Day", and "Bleeding Me" being the only standouts, and "Until It Sleeps" and "King Nothing" are the only songs that even COMPARE to Metallica's earlier material.
Load's biggest problem is it's sloppy writing and repetitiveness, which ruins most songs on the album.

Though it couldn't be more different from Metallica's earlier work, "Load" is undeserving of its criticism and is in many ways a cut above what they've recorded before.

 Blogcritics.org: Giving St. Anger a second chance
Metallica had a bit of a mid-life crisis, attempting to cash in on current trends in such a way that it didn't appear convincing in any way, and the changes were so sudden that the band, understandably, upset a large number of very loyal fans.
The two albums, while certainly not classics, are unfairly judged by this period where upset fans took out their frustrations.
So hopes were understandably high when news that the band would soon release a new album, claimed by the band themselves as they heaviest thing they've done in 10 years or more.
