Yes I will agree on that to the level of being one of their best.
"Fade to Black", "Creeping Death", and "Ride the Lightning", all have AMAZING solos.
I will NEVER in my life understand this band.
01. Fight Fire With Fire: the acoustic intro, so sweet and lush, quite peppy, wait...This isn't metallica.
It is one of Metallica's best albums and will always remain that way in my mind.
It's definately in the top 2 Metallica albums.
It should be owned by every metal fan.
Fade to Black, Fight Fire With Fire and Creeping are the best songs in this album to me, the rest...
The riffs on these songs are classic, and it's not brought down by some theme that goes into every song...
Don't get me wrong, Ride the Lightning has its merits, but compared to the darker lyrical matter, as well and...
Just about the whole album is impressive to me.
I love everything about it (except for the bad solos in Call of Ktulu).
The best songs from the album are Fight Fire with Fire, For Whom the Bell Tolls, Fade to Black, Creeping...
Fight Fire With Fire - beautiful harmonized acoustic guitar starts out this song.
It still is one of the best metal albums ever made to date.
I love Metallica and this was FAR better than I could have expected for thier yound second album.
Not trying to get too biased, and trying to remain objective though, personally this album lacks, but only in a...
Metallica sound at their most youthful and innovative, slowly working their way towards their prime.
I think that Ride The Lightning is the best album so far just because the sound of it fits with...
Nothing short of brilliant. The lasting power of the tracks is immediately obvious; Creeping Death and For Whom The Bell Tolls will be staples of their live shows until the end, and songs like Fade to Black and The Call Of Ktulu will always stand out as remarkable examples of their musical excellence.
I would definetely attempt to gain this CD in some way or form.
It is the best album with Cliff Burton in it.
However, when played in contrast to "Kill 'Em All", it's very obvious that on "Ride The Lightning", a lot of...
This is definetly one of the hardest albums ever and one of my favorites.
Fight Fire With Fire - is the blistering opening track, one painfully fast riff and a blistering guitar solo.
This album had the best thrash tone from metallica, the one thing I think hey could have done better was...
You can go searching throughout the world and never find a heavy metal band that even comes close to their...
Overall I love this album, its awesome, I only wish they could have added some more tracks to it.
It is also one of the greatest rock albums ever made.
Fight Fire With Fire - the song starts out with a muted lute sound tricking the listener but also creating...
Ride The Lightning can't be compared to Master Of Puppets or The Black Album at any point.
Compared to other albums on Metallica and other bands: this album may stike the best interest in most people.
It is bettered by Master Of Puppets, but is still better than ...And Justice For All, which in my opinion...
Also, I particularly like the very beginning of Fight Fire With Fire (right after the acoustic bit that is), and...
Eight heavy, passionate, amazing songs jammed onto one album and performed by the undisputed best of metal, Metallica.
I can't honestly choose a favorite song from the album, because to me there weren't any.
Fight Fire With Fire - a really great acoustic intro.
I hate nothing of this album. I like everything about this album.
Newer metal fans might find the sound a bit muddy, but I look past that.
Without a doubt Metallica became a legend since this album.
Metallica's new album comes out in 2006, so I'm hoping they decided to start doing thrash again and make it...
Well, get over it, bitch. That's what this whole f'n album is about.
Probobly one of Metallica's best. If I broke it I would definiatly buy it again..
The approach to songcraft is much different, they really expand on their songs and have more than just fast-fast-fast the...
And if you don't like it, youre a poseur.
The only bad thing I think is that it's not as heavy as Kill'Em All but every band has some...
This and Master Of Puppets were the ultimate peak for Metallica.
If it was stolen, I would buy five more to replace it.
It's much more enjoyable than the last album and has better songs.
As I already said, the best songs are Ride The Lightning and for Whom The Bell Tolls.
Classic songs such as the epic 'Fade to Black' and the haunting 'For whom the bell tolls' are the albums...
Great CD. Friggin' Awesome CD.
The only problem with this album like I said before is that it sound thin tone wise.
It improves on many aspects of "Kill..." and thrashes more than "Master...".
Boy, did it get me hooked. It is hard to pick a favorite song; they're all phenominal.
This album is good as Master of Puppets or ...And justice for all but it contains my favorite song ever...Fade...
the overall impression. damn it I'm gonna be here for about a month so I'll TRY and keep it brief.
This is one of Metallica's most underated CD's, yet it is one of my Favorite ones.
Also it seems to have matured from some of metallicas previous work in that it no longer is about monsters...
It is, by far, my favorite Metallica recording.
