Load > ReLoad.

I like both, but Ain't My Bitch, King Nothing, Hero of The Day, Bleeding Me, Outlaw Torn, Cure, Wasting My Hate and Ronnie are better than everything on ReLoad apart from Devil's Dance, Fixxxer and Low Man's Lyric.

There's still plenty on ReLoad I like though. I often put those two discs on shuffle.

personal favorites: where the wild things are, low mans lyric, the outlaw torn, fixxer

best singles: bleeding me, memory remains

complete garbage: hero of the day, mama said, unforgiven II

rest range from indifference to solid

regardless of the quality of the loads overall, the best thing about them is they are the logical natural progression for the band at that point. age appropriate. unforced, unlike st anger, and to a lesser extent death magnetic.

Agreed on all counts.

Great points. I've said this before, and stand by it: Load is my 3rd favorite Metallica album after MOP and RTL, and probably in my top 15-20 of all time. Bleeding Me is a masterpiece, and it's filled with songs that don't break any barriers but are simply great to my ears.

I smell complete BS with these set lists. How is it feasible that every single city on this tour has chosen the same damn top 15-20 songs with a couple of alterations here and there? Nothing Else Matters and Sad But True and Enter Sandman in EVERY SINGLE CITY?! I think it was me who mentioned something about South America earlier in this thread, and I have no other choice but to conclude that this By Request garbage is not based in reality. Who on this planet is really going to request all these standard jukebox tunes for the 5 bajillionth time?

the average metallica fan? hits are hits for a reason, so it shouldnt be a surprise that these sets are largely hits, especially 3 of their biggest. for every person that would rather stick pencils in their ears than hear those 3 songs again for the bajilitionth time, there are probably another 100 who would be stoked as fuck.

besides, their catalog is fucking gigantic. 75% of the people could be voting with absolutely nothing but deep cuts, but with little overlap, so all it takes is for the majority of the remaining 25% to vote for the hits to get them included.

The catalog really isn't that gigantic.

Overkill, Megadeth, Maiden, Helloween all have bigger discographies of original studio albums. Hell even In Flames has way more albums released then Metallica, and Met has an 11 year head start. Pantera for god's sakes has released the same amount of albums as Metallica, and it's been 14 years since the last Pantera record.

I repeat, the Met catalog is not gigantic at all when you think about it. Forget the silly cover songs and records and EP's and singles and all that crap. Metallica has 9 studio albums for a grand total of 95 songs...a 20 song setlist every night is a fifth of their entire original release history, it really isn't all that difficult to switch it up.

You aren't thinking like a typical South American Metallica fan. Or a typical eastern European Metallica fan. To them, the be all end all of heavy metal is probably Metallica and Iron Maiden, so of course they're going to want to hear the hits.
