2 stars Metallica - 'Load' 2 stars

Sheesh.

Here Metallica finally takes a real turn in their sound. Any of their fast paced, real thrash moments were gone, as well as the angst. Instead, we have much slower paced, hard rock songs mixed with a radio friendly sound that made this one of the most controversial bands to exist. The sound produced by the above segments created a terrible and overall boring sound. The solo's were also just slow blues, which Hammett really isn't very good at, because blues usually evokes emotion, which Hammett also doesn't do, just feels like he is just hitting any note in the scales and is satisfied with himself.

This album just dragged on and on. While this didn't have horrific intentions, I'll give it two stars at most. If you think this is the worst you are in for a real treat. This started the end of Metallica.
