2 stars Metallica's seventh album and the follow up to Load.

Those who thought Metallica could not sink any lower than they did on Load were up for a nasty surprise. Reload is a reload of the ideas from Load. That is, only worse.

The sound on Reload is dirty and with more than some hints of Trouble and sludge. That on the top of some music that reminds me about heavy metal, but with a vastly different sound. I cannot pinpoint this sound and I am not that interested either. This album and the tracks sounds like the US government's new initiative against insomnia. Which is exactly what it feels like. Only the new version of The Unforgiven and the Marianne Faithful collaboration The Memory Remains is half decent. The rest of this album is already forgotten.

2 stars
