Or maybe they just don't like alternative rock/metal? Not that hard to understand really.

Load has more good songs, so I'll go with that. But ReLoad does have some good ones, as well (Fuel, Memory, Dance, UII, Better Than You, Slither, CDB, Bad Seed, Prince Charming).

That's not hard to understand at all. But it makes any view they have one what makes a good album of that style worthless. I was working on the assumption that anyone who expressed an opinion on the quality of these albums either likes the style and thinks they're bad examples of it, or is stuck in "it doesn't sound like Metallica" mode. Otherwise having a "view" at all is stupid and most likely wrong.

It'd be like me saying what makes a good extreme death metal album.

That's true too. I can't judge whether or not those albums are good for what they are, I just know that kind of music makes me cringe.

I really like the closing tracks on both albums a lot. Also, give me Thorn Within, Carpe Diem Baby, Wasting My Hate, Bleeding Me...definitely some good jams across both. It's tough to pick, I like roughly the same amount of songs on each.

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.

I finally agree with you on something.

This. And mainly cause I don't wanna hate Metallica.

I don't care a lot for Load and Reload but there are good songs on each album. Reload might be the better album, I like some songs from Load but there is something about that album I can't stand. The songs on Load I like are, The House Jack Built, Until It Sleeps, King Nothing and Hero of the Day. I like the heavy part in Bleeding Me(4:05-7:18), and The Outlaw Torn is alright. The songs I like on Reload are, Fuel, The Memory Remains, Devil's Dance, The Unforgiven II, Where the Wild Things Are, Low Man's Lyric and Fixxer. I listen to those songs, the rest of the album I don't care for.

I think that as Metallica albums they are horrible, but as just albums in general, Load is pretty okay and ReLoad has its moments, but overall falls short of being a decent album.
