We gave it a B

Just 16 months after their last effort, the boys are back in frown, gnarling their way through bristly thrashers and slithery ballads recorded during and after the Load sessions. Re-Load continues their journey into stripped-down maturity while toying with fresh melodic textures (hurdy-gurdy on ”Low Man’s Lyric”). It also forsakes some of the punchy hooks and gut-clenching heft that elevated recent Metallica CDs. Still, consider yourself rocked. B
