Metallica: Ride the Lightning

Sound — 10
This is just gotta be my favorite album of all time, by my favorite band of all time. It's an instant classic from Fight Fire With Fire, to the instrumental The Call Of Ktulu. This is Metallica's most thrashiest album, better than Puppets, Reign In Blood, all of them.

These lyrics are always runnning in my head while I sit in school while there's a lesson, there just that good. And James's voice in this is at it's finest in all the years, matured from Kill 'em All.

Overall Impression — 10
Overall, this album is better than any thrash album out there, and it's the best choice for all metal heads and Metallica fans alike. Metallica's new album comes out in 2006, so I'm hoping they decided to start doing thrash again and make it like this one.
