Ride the Lightning album for sale Product Description

Ride the Lightning album for sale by Metallica was released Nov 08, 2011 on the Universal Music 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 CD music. The set starts out with two tunes that would have been right at home on KILL 'EM ALL, but the next two are slower and more involved. Ride the Lightning CD music contains a single disc.   ...See Full Description

An awesome album
Ride the Lightning album for sale When stood up against Metallica's other albums, I view this one as the weakling that sits in the corner that has great potential. In fact, this album is just purely amazing, and in my opinion, their second best. The acoustic intro seemed slightly childish when I first heard it, and holds nothing to the Battery intro, but it grew on me. Anyway, it just serves as a distraction for what's coming. Fight Fire With Fire is mad crazy with shredding guitars and deathly black lyrics. Not one of their greater first tracks, but still a favorite. Ride The Lightning's riff does not seem very impressive to me, but it is an absolutely amazing concept song that's up there almost near One (but still falls very short). For Whom The Bell Tolls is a great war commentary. Fade To Black is one of Metallica's most heartfelt songs, and one of their best. Trapped Under Ice is a sensational metaphorical headbanger. Escape doesn't have one of my favorite riffs but has some great anti-authority lyrics. Creeping Death is one of Metallica's greatest concept songs ever as well, written in the pint of view of Moses' last plague that kills the first born son... who else would write about that? The Call Of Ktulu is a beautiful instrumental. It gets a bit boring halfway through, but there's a really great solo, and ends the album very nicely.

Very electrifying, although "Kill 'Em All" is their best, this one definately rocks. Ask my neighbors, they hate it. HAHAHAHAHA!

Classic Metal
Better produced than "Kill'em All", and alot more melodic. A more epic sound than before with better lyrics. Definitely a Metal Masterpiece. These Metal pioneers are surely the Masters of Metal.

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. Besides that Metallica rocks, I raise my glass to another 30 yrs. Rock on Metallica.
