So many things wrong with this album and with this era of Metallica. The Metallica fanboys will go to their graves saying they didn't sell out.

The fact is Metallica did sellout. They didn't just cut their hair. Lars and Kirk went gay mode. Kirk went with the painted nails and lipstick, Lars went with the pierced tits and ears. Look at the inlay, cover, and photos of the Load era. Excluding Jason, these guys became big douchebags during this era.

This album is a mix of blusey rock and grunge. Then you have the laughable country tune Mama Said and southern rock track Ronnie.

The lyrics are a huge step down from the past Metallica. Look at the title track 'Ain't my Bitch' for a good example...

All of Kirk's solos on this album are forgettable. This guy hasn't been able to play his guitar since 1995 and write a decent solo since 1991.

Hetfield's voice is shot. This is the beginning of the yodeling and the beginning of the end. This is the first album to be tuned down half a step.

Lars drumming is average. Never was a great drummer but he had his moments. Starting in 1994 the kit started to shrink and the drumming got more bland.

I can't say anything positive or negative about Jason on this album. They ignored his suggestions and input. He could have saved this band.

Metallica has said they want to grow and try new things. They are proud of all their releases, but then why don't they play anything from the Load/Reload era besides Fuel? Because it all sucks and the fans want metal. Fuel is crap song by the way, Hetfield is just obsessed with it.

Top songs:
Ain't My Bitch
2X4
King Nothing
Bleeding Me
Wasting My Hate

You want blusey rock? Go listen to any ZZ Top which shits on this album.

This is slightly better than Reload imo. It could and should have been shorter.

I listen to this album often. It's the epitome of rock and is way underrated IMO.
