Background: Starting in 2008, Metallica released their entire catalog in the form of limited edition, high quality, half speed mastered 180 gram pressings.
These were issued at both 33 1/3 speed and also at 45 RPM for better sound quality.
Released in 1996, Reload was the seventh studio album by Metallica.
The album reached #4 on the UK charts and #1 in the U.S.
Metallica recorded so much material for Load — their first album in five years — that they had to leave many songs unfinished, otherwise they would have missed their deadline. During the supporting tour for Load, they continued to work on the unfinished material, as well as write new songs, and they soon had enough material for a new album, Reload. The title suggests that Reload simply is a retread of its predecessor, and in many ways that’s correct — there’s still too much bone-headed, heavy Southern rock for it to be anything other than the sequel to Load — but there’s enough left curves to make it a better record.
