Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ride The Lightning (Audio CD)
Approximately 6 months ago, I identified a massive Metallica size hole in my collection. This was quickly rectified after speaking with a lifelong fan, and purchases were duly made in the shape of Ride The Lightening and Master Of Puppets. And what a 6 months since!
Armchair metal fan as I am, I enjoy the odd speaker-shake of Maiden, a spin of year-zero Sabbath and slight dalliances with Tool's heavier material as much as the next man. However, what I was not expecting was just how amazing the two Metallica numbers I picked up were going to be.
It would be a peculiar world in which a metaphor consisting of metal could blow something away, but it is in this landscape I find myself. I shall never be sold to the genre, but will forever be a happy slave to her peaks within. They do not get better. Powerful and exciting.
