Maybe I don't appreciate Metal as much as others. Pretty bland in comparison to Master of Puppets. It is impressive, but I am just not a fan of shredding scales and calling it a song. One reason most of Mozart's material is dismissed, but the stuff that is good, is golden. I see that with this. All the shredding just glosses together for me as nothing terribly interesting. Amazing musicianship though. And if you need to feel bad ass, I guess this could help you with that inadequacy.
I remember this was the first thrash metal album I ever bought. It blew my mind. I was in the era of slipknot and mudvayne and a whole bunch if fake shit, and this just opened my eyes to how great and aggressive young metal bands once were. If it wasn't for their follow-up "Master of Puppets" this would be my favorite hard rock and metal album in my life. Metallica was king I'd hard rock/metal and that includes Led zeppelin.... in my opinion.
I didn't think I would get much enjoyment from this album, but even I got a shot of lightning listening to this. And any fan of heavy metal would love this album.
This album has it all. Thrash, beautiful melodies, an epic instrumental, and plenty of fan favorites. Cliff's work on For Whom the Bell Tolls is epic. One of the better Metallica albums. But seriously, what from their early days isn't?
Ride The Lightning (along with Master Of Puppets) is the best that Metallica will ever do. No doubt. For Whom The Bell Tolls: great, Creeping Death: great, Fade To Black: possibly really the highest peak Metallica ever achieved and will ever achieve in the future. A must-have not only for every metal fan, but for every music lover.
Metallica's most aggressive. Has the energy matched with the technical skill. Masters of Puppets is stronger, but this makes you want to run through a wall.
More interesting songwriting than Kill 'em All but it still has the energy. A lot of classics here.
A solid entry in Metallica's epic run during their 1st 4 albums combining the raw power of Kill Em All and intricacy of Master of Puppets.
The thing with Metallica, is that most of their songs don't need to be as long as they are. They just have an amazing 3 or 4 minutes, and drag out for another 4. Even though this album is one of their shorter ones, it suffers from that.
