By: Metallica
Release date: 1987
Standing track: For Whom the Bell Tolls

Ride the Lightning, Metallica's second album, truly bought the monsters forward to a larger fan-base. Furthermore, I consider this, alongside Master of Puppets which I like but not *that* much, to be the 'true' Metallica album and every song is a winner!

"8th February More distinctive riffs this time around and song writing credits include lead guitarist Kirk Hammett this time around and bassist Cliff Burton has more of an input in the process this time around. A powerful album with some very morbid themes, surrounded by fitting music. Favourite Tracks Ride the Lightning Fade to Black Creeping Death Call of Ktulu"

Soundtrack of my Life... (58 music items)

"Make his fight on the hill in the early day Constant chill deep inside Shouting gun, on they run through the endless grey On they fight, for the right, yes but who's to say? For a hill men would kill why? They do not know Stiffened wounds test their pride Men of five, still alive through the raging glow Gone insane from this pain that they surely know For whom the bell tolls Time marches on For whom the bell tolls Take a look to the sky just before you die It is the last time you will Blackene"

18 Best Rock / Metal Albums I've Heard! (18 music items)

" Year: 1984! Many people declare Black or Master Of Puppets as the definitive Metallica album but i disagree. Ride The Lightning undoubtedly remains as the 'classic' Metallica album because each & every song is a winner! Tracks listing: Creeping Death Escape Fade To Black Fight Fire With Fire For Whom The Bell Tolls Ride The Lightning The Call Of Ktulu Trapped In Ice Outstanding tracks: Creeping Death, Fade To Black, For Whom The Bell Tolls & Ride The Lightning! 500 "

Songs and what they mean to me (25 music items)

""Fade to Black" Throughout junior high & high school, I used to carry the lyrics to this song around in my wallet. For a while Metallica was my favorite band, and I felt that this song best captured the depression I wallowed in from 1990 through 1995 (well, aside from the fact that it's about suicide...I was NEVER suicidal).
