Why does everyone hate this album just because it got some fame?,
This review is from: Metallica (Audio CD)
First off, why is it that so many people hated this album just because it was all over the radio and sold some 12 million copies? I'm here to tell you that if you hate a metal album because it has a big name record label, or it sells really well, then you are a POSER.
I love old Metallica, and this was their last 5 star performance. The production is very good, there are just as many chugging riffs and crazy solos as their early stuff, but it doesn't sound as raw, and it's more well developed (which isn't always a good thing) than say, Kill Em All.
What I really do like about this album is it's one of those cds that has so many good songs you can listen to it the whole way through without skipping a track. Wherever I May Roam is my personal favorite, and the only song I would give lower than a four is Holier Than Thou. This IS a metal album, it just has more of a modern sound rather than an 80's sound.
Bottom Line: This album IS metal, and it belongs on all Metallica fans' shelf, whether they like Load or Reload or not, because it is much much different. 5 stars, pick this one up cheap online.

Why? Because bands mature but some listeners never do...
