Ride the Lightning album for sale by Metallica was released Sep 24, 2013 on the Rhino (Label) label. Metallica turned the metal world on its ear with their debut album, KILL 'EM ALL and then blew its mind with the follow-up, RIDE THE LIGHTNING. The riffs and arrangements are more intricate, the lyrics are more intelligent and biting and James Hetfield's growl is meaner Ride the Lightning songs.

||An awesome album|
When stood up against Metallica's other albums, I view this one as the weakling that sits in the corner that has great potential.
By DarkTemplar04J (Oxford, MA)
Very electrifying, although "Kill 'Em All" is their best, this one definately rocks. Ask my neighbors, they hate it. HAHAHAHAHA!
By livemiasey (Texas)
Better produced than "Kill'em All", and alot more melodic. A more epic sound than before with better lyrics. Definitely a Metal Masterpiece.

||Metallica reigns triumphant!|
The first Metallica album to showcase their true abilities as musicians; melodic-meets-heavy guitar solos, growling vocals, and personal lyrics are among the trademarks that define the band's innovative sound to this day, and they're all evident for the first time on Ride the Lightning.

||One of Metallica's best albums of all time!!!!|
In my opinion besides. and Justice for all, which is closely tied, is one of Metallica's best albums by far, until the 90's when they started playing hard rock instead of the hardcore thrash metal I am accustomed to.
