Ride The Lightning

Metallica's 'Ride The Lightning' is imo the greatest heavy metal record ever recorded. 'Master Of Puppets' and '...And Justice For All' are great too but RTL is a step above them.

"Ride The Lightning"
"For Whom The Bell Tolls"
"Fade To Black"
"Escape"
"Creeping Death"
"Call Of The Ktulu"



Fade To Black in particular is just an incredible song.

When I look at old-school Metallica and then at what they've become, it just makes me sad.

Old-school Metallica

'For Whom the Bell Tolls' is easily my favorite Metallica song. Great stuff

Tough call. Fade to Black and Creeping Death are awesome.

I love all the core Metallica albums, but MOP is the top one IMO

Yeah, right, you like St. Anger more than all of them. Clown shoes.

Fade To Black, Creeping Death and For Whom The Bell Tolls are classics, but for me, Puppets takes place over Ride - and these 3 words will explain my reasoning.....Trapped Under Ice

This looks like a shirt you'd get (it's almost worth getting even if you absolutely hate Shadows Fall):

Fight Fire With Fire vs. Battery
BATTERY, for being one of the greatest metal album openers ever. And it's about--hitting people! Hard!

Ride the Lightning vs. Master of Puppets
MASTER OF PUPPETS, for being such an epic track. This is really miles beyond what they were doing on the first two records.

For Whom the Bell Tolls vs. The Thing That Should Not Be
FOR WHOM THE BELL TOLLS, just one of the most awesome Metallica tracks ever. That drum fill after "it's the last time you will" rules.

Fade to Black vs. Sanitarium
FADE TO BLACK. One of the all-time best guitar solos. No contest. Their best "ballad" ever.

Trapped Under Ice vs. Disposeable Heroes
DISPOSEABLE HEROES, some of the best lyrics in the band's career. Really underrated song.

Escape vs. Leper Messiah
LEPER MESSIAH. It's a song called "Leper Messiah"!!! You can't beat that! And it has a funky metal groove.

Creeping Death vs. Damage, Inc. (I'm shuffling the songs here to compare instrumental to instrumental).
DAMAGE, INC. Some people think Creeping Death is one of Metallica's best songs. I've never been a huge fan. My personal preference is for the Puppets track, and I honestly think it's the better song. The intro's amazing...this album is like the Revolver of heavy metal. The closest call.

Call of Khtulu vs. Orion
ORION. Hard to argue against this. Orion is their best instrumental, and maybe stronger than several of the songs with vocals on this album. Cliff Burton rules, and although Hammett is the lead guitarist, Hetfield's solo is quite soulful on this one.

Master of Puppets wins this head-to-head easily. Perhaps Lightning would have better luck going against And Justice for All. It's certainly better than that sell out Black Album and all the crap that came after it.
