Load

Most every band that has stayed together for any length of time has recorded an album that Blows. This is Metallica's. Load is a contradiction to any of the previously recorded Metallica albums. No intricate solos! No punch! Very little agression! No originality. The boys even try a little country with Mama Said. The only bright spots to me were Bleeding Me and King Nothing. The song Ain't my Bitch would have been a bright spot had Kirk not borrowed the solo from a Skynrd tune. Unfortunately for this album, the name says it all!
