1 stars Yawn!

This is one of the most boring rock albums I've ever heard. It's got some blues rock tendencies, and there's nothing wrong with blues rock in general - if the artist is able to actually play interesting and engaging blues rock. It's got some alternative rock tendencies, and there's nothing wrong with alternative rock - if it seems sincere and if it's performed well. There's a bit of metal, too, but not much, and whatever metal there is is trite and tried and uninspiring. There's absolutely none of the progginess and tendency towards complexity that made Metallica interesting in the 80s.

"Reload" is so depressingly boring that the band should have called themselves "Boringwannebe90ishgrownupalternativerockica". Sigh!
