5.0 out of 5 stars Their best album without a doubt, 4 Sept. 2007
This review is from: Ride The Lightning (Audio CD)
This is Metallica's finest, it contains great moments and has few faults.

What I would like to state however is that only two songs were co-written with Dave Mustaine these being "Ride the lightning" and "the call of ktulu." Though these are key tracks, Kirk Hammet clearly had more to do with this album than Dave Mustaine.

The first track is good but nothing in comparison to the opener of "Master of Puppets - battery". 3.5/5

"Ride the Lightning" the title track is brilliant and is one of the album's highlights. The guitar solo's are great but its James Hetfield's voice and riffs that make this song awesome. 4.5/5

Great live, "For Whom The Bell Tolls" could have been the only song off the album to follow "ride the lighning." This song is just the ultimate mosher tune. 5/5

Definitevly the best song on the album, showing how good a guitarist Kirk Hammett is you can tell he was taught by Joe Satriani, this song is incredible hats off to Metallica for "Fade to Black." 5/5

Its hard form this point not to just replay some of the previous songs or just skip forward to "Creeping Death" or "The call of ktulu", however "trapped under ice" is worth a good listen and though it is weak on this album it would be one of the best on later albums like "st. anger" 3.5/5

"Escape" for me is the worst song out of all, though this possible maybe more down to my personal dislike for this song its not bad. 3/5

"Creeping Death" a great song that gets even better when heard live especially when the crowd are asked to shout out die and for some i know their favourite off the album, fantastic! 4.5/5

"The Call of Ktulu" if the most epic song nearly ever by metallica with obviously one taking that prize, a great way to finish off an album but especially for "ride the lighning", though after having heard it many times it can get boring. 4/5
