Even Better Follow-Up,
This review is from: Ride The Lightning (Audio CD)
Ride The Lightning is one hell of an album. Not as 'thrashy' sounding as their debut Kill 'Em All, but the writing (lyrics and music) is better than before, showing 'tallica were improving as musicians. This album was also themed in a way - all the songs are about ways of dying.
Fight Fire With Fire - Nuclear War
Ride The Lightning - Electrocution
For Whom The Bell Tolls - On the battlefield
Fade To Black - Suicide
Trapped Under Ice - Drowning
Escape - Difficult to explain, listen and make your mind up about it
Creeping Death - Murder
All these songs are classics with great big crunchy guitar riffs, thick, heavy drumming, powerful bass, and to top it off great lyrics. My favourite songs are the very cool title track Ride The Lightning, the epic (and best on the album) Fade To Black, the thrashy Creeping Death and the beautifully pieced Call of Ktulu.
