Ultimate Guitar
Honestly, if had lost this CD, I don’t know if I would cry or kill someone. I would buy extra copeis just in case the CD were never out of my possesion. And, to let everyone know, I did not hate one thing about this CD. I loved everything. […]
As for individual efforts, the band members make a more cohesive presence here; they don’t get much time to show off, but rather feel like a single entity. As odd as it may seem, this actually ends up being more beneficial than it was for The Black Album, letting the listener breathe and take in the atmosphere each song puts out. […]

The Metal Archives
Some people recommend this to hard rock/blues rock fans, but even that seems a bit insulting; none of these songs are essential to the genre. Load is purely for the most hardcore Metallica fan, who can find more ways to defend it than I can. […]
