Metallica: Ride the Lightning

Sound — 10
Another amazing and spectacular album from the Gods of rock - Metallica. There are some amazing riffs and solos on this album with an amazing set of lyrics. This gives the album a sexy sound and a must listen for all people. It is mainly hard rock with some sexy solos. The album is a great one and has an amazing set of songs.

The lyrics on the album are really good. They fit in well with the fast riffs and songs. The solos go with the songs and I swear there are some amazing ones. James Hetfield at his height of power. He sings really really well and plays some great riffs as well. Ride The Lightning is a song about what a man thinks and feels while he walks to his death at the electric chair.

Overall Impression — 10
It is definitely one of their greatest albums ever. It is also one of the greatest rock albums ever made. It has some amazing solos and riffs and is a must listen for any upcoming rock guitarist. Kirk, Lars, Jason and James have made a brilliant album!
