    Ride the Lightning

    Metallica's second effort was just a little better than their first, at least more diverse. In some form, "Fade To Black" is a power ballad, yet its content has nothing to do with love, or anything positive for that matter. Great thrash metal album.

    Ride the Lightning

    This is a fantastic album. With "Kill Em All," the band established itself as very heavy and super-fast. In this album, they still have their speed themes, but also intact are slower tunes like my favorite song on the album, "Fade To Black." This is a very good c.d. for Metallica beginners to listen to. This, of course, and the Black Album.

    Must-have Metallica

    A very strong album mostly in the manner of the later (and slightly better) Master of Puppets. This one includes heaping doses of brutal thrash ('Fight Fire With Fire', 'Trapped Under Ice'), but also some slower, more grinding fare in 'For Whom the Bell Tolls'. The standout 'Fade to Black' is in the manner of Led Zeppelin's 'Stairway to Heaven', but deals with the dark topic of suicide. Lastly, metal fans will enjoy the aggressive rush of 'Creeping Death' and the long and winding instrumental 'Call of Ktulu'. Not quite as ambitious as their next two albums, this one is nevertheless an essential record.
