2 stars The leftovers of Load. I might be in minority thinking that the style change marked by Load was a great move and that Load itself is a magnificent album. Well, ReLoad continues with the same style (bluesy heavy rock with touches of alternative rock) but it's a much more weaker effort from Metallica.

I can find several songs that I enjoy, but there are also songs which I consider to be embarrassing for Metallica. The songs I really like are Fuel, Devil's Dance, Low Man's Lyric and Fixxxer. The rest of the album range from ok to horrible. I really liked their change in style, but they made a bad judgement to publish ReLoad as it is.

In conclusion, ReLoad is not a good album, but it is saved by few very enjoyable songs. Especially Fixxxer is a great one in my opinion, and Low Man's Lyric is something very different from them and still succeeds. 2 stars.
