Would Load/Reload have made one great album?

Recommended Posts

1.Fuel

2.Ain’t My Bitch

3.The House that Jack Built

4.Until It Sleeps

5.King Nothing

6.Hero of the Day

7.Bleeding Me

8.Mama Said

9.The Memory Remains

10.Better Than You

11.Fixxxer

12.The Outlaw Torn (Full Version)

so really just Load… and even then it’s still not as good as the first five or Hardwired… I guess if you want to balance it out more you can cut Outlaw short and add Slither and Unforgiven 2… I guess…

Thoughts?

As much as I like them as is, neither one album holds against the Metallica albums that came before.

If you had to do a one Load album of the best tracks, what would you choose?

 

 

Almost impossible to follow what had gone before in fairness. I didn’t realize it was 5 & 6 years after The Black album they came out. I remembered a shorter span in my head... the wait for st anger was a lonnng wait also. 

I also got weirded out realizing its 15 years since I’ve seen Metallica live. Yknow when you see a band a few times you think it’s been 5-6 years since you saw them. 15 years is a long time! I saw them 6 times between 92-06. Skipped the last  few tours (15 years worth it appears!) I’ll go next time they roll around.

This pretty much sums up the best of load/re. 

 

Have we done this for the ultimate UYI if there was only 1 album. Regardless of time frames, picking only 12 songs, what would be the ultimate UYI album?

Mine would be:

RNDTH

NR

Bad Apples 

YCBM

Locomotive 

Estranged 

Breakdown 

Don't Cry(org) 

GITR

PTU

Perfect Crime

Coma

The Memory Remains seems to be a real fan favourite and has a continued popularity on rock radio, but am I the only person that has never been able to get past Faithfull's vocals? I can't do it. I can't even appreciate it in all its oddity.

I was always put off by that on the studio version, but the S&M version with the crowd singing it is what made that song for me

I'm one for 99% of double albums or albums with more than 45 minutes be slimmed/cut down. It's usually for the best. Just trim out the flab. Load/ReLoad, UYI, Stadium Arcadium, The White Album, Physical Graffiti, Hardwired...To Self Destruct, Senjutsu... they'd all benefit from this. In the case of Load/ReLoad:

 

  1. Fuel
  2. Until It Sleeps
  3. Bleeding Me
  4. The Unforgiven II
  5. Memory Remains
  6. Hero Of the Day
  7. Wasting My Hate
  8. Mama Said
  9. The Outlaw Torn
  10. Low Man's Lyric

 

Too many ballads, I know... not my fault the more high-energy songs from those albums suck :lol:
