Re: Metallica's 'Load' a whole load of crap? I think not.

Couldn't agree more, however I think 'Ain't my Bitch' and 'King Nothing' are pretty damn good as well, that's the reason I love the album so much: because its mostly 5 star songs. I didn't include King Nothing because I had totally forgotten about that one. Ain't My Bitch is kinda meh, good but I c...

Re: Metallica's 'Load' a whole load of crap? I think not.

not so amazing ...and Justice for all (1988) I beg to differ. While it may not be as good as RTL or MoP, Justice was a fantastic album. You have incredible songs like One, fast, agressive songs like Blackened and Dyers Eve and some "slow" songs that are not as fast but don't lose their ed...

Re: Good Spanish and Swedish music?

I don't like Fito's music very much and I like some of Soda/Cerati's songs, but I thought I should mention them. I hardly listen to music in Spanish because there's nothing that I like a lot (except for Héroes).
