Plus, I think King Nothing is better than any song on Reload. Although, honestly I don't remember either record too well.
I love the lyrics to King Nothing, but the music to it is pretty lame. Here's my ranking of the songs I listed as good:

1. Ain't My Bitch
2. 2 X 4
3. Low Man's Lyric
4. Devil's Dance
5. Fuel
6. King Nothing
7. Carpe Diem Baby

Truth.

And 'Load' all day long, but there are some songs I love on ReLoad too.

Good songs as I see it (no order):

Load
All of them. Ranging from good to awesome.

ReLoad
Devil's Dance
The Unforgiven II
Better Than You
Low Man's Lyric

The rest ranging from average to good. In particular 'Memory Remains' is just good on here, but it elevates to great on 'S&M', which is still one of my favourite live albums/DVDs of all time.

Like King Nothing, the only thing I like about The Memory Remains is its lyrics. The music itself irks me.

They both suck really hard, but Load is a better album for sure.

I smell people who can't get over the fact that it doesn't sound like old Metallica...
