MY REVIEW IS BASED ON PRODUCTION OF THIS SHM-CD ONLY.WE ALL KNOW WHAT AN AMAZING CD THIS IS.FROM WHAT I CAN GATHER FROM THIS RELEASE PRODUCTION WISE. I WOULD HAVE TOO AGREE WITH ANOTHER REVIEW, THIS SOUNDS LIKE THE ALBUM, IN PRODUCTION VALUES. NO HISSES OR CRACKS OF COURSE. EVERY INSTRUMENT HAS CLEAN QUALITIES TOO THEM. THE VOLUME LEVELS HAVENT BEEN RAISED. - MAKE THIS CLEAR, THIS IS NOT A REMASTERED CD. THE COMPRESSION SOUND IS NOT ON THIS CD, LIKE IT IS ON THE "REGULAR CD" . AT 40 BUCKS THIS IS REALLY TOO HIGH A PRICE CONSIDERING CDS ARE GOING BY THE WAYSIDE. STILL WERE ALWAYS SEARCHING FOR THAT "BEST" SOUND POSSIBLE.SO ITS UP TOO YOU, TAKE A CHANCE AND HEAR SOMETHING YOU NEVER HEARD ON THIS CD OR STICK WITH YOUR OLD COPY.

This review is for this vinyl pressing, not for the album. The mastering is terrible. It sounds like an old recorded cassette. Get the 45 rpm version if you want this on vinyl.

This album will give you a bulge in your pants - right before the executioner flips the switch and fries your brain...

When listening to this album, you'll be greeted with numerous fast, heavy hitting classics such as Ride The Lightning, For Whom The Bell Tolls and Fade To Black and greeted with a few not so classic, but still very enjoyable tracks. I have to give it to Metallica though, their sound had echoed through the ears of ages unlike any other. I remember being 12 or 13 and hearing the likes of Nothing Else Matters and Enter Sandman and thinking to myself, 'I need to hear more'. The rest, for me, is history. I've been rocking to Metallica for over a decade now and have taken every opportunity to pick up my guitar and wail out some of their tunes till my fingers are left bloodied and bruised - Only to get up the next morning to do it all again.

You really cannot go wrong buying this album or any other album up to and including the black album. In my humble opinion though, I would not waste a cent on anything Metallica has produced as of late, especially Lulu and St. Anger. Trust me when I say there is a great sense of irony in the fact that Metallica chose St. Anger as the title of that record. When I listen to it, I can't help but want to punch Lars in the face for the sound of his snare drum, rip out James' vocal chords and chop off Hammet and Hetfield's fingers... I truly am, "Madly in anger" with them for their recent efforts...

RIDE THE LIGHTENING, Metallica's second album, is notable for its musical direction, combining thrash metal with more symphonic, and much more complex, songwriting than previously seen in metal music.

When Metallica recorded their debut, Kill 'Em All, the record was brutal, fast, and noholds barred. The music barrels ahead, and there isn't nearly as many different instrumental subtetlies and flourishes that Metallica would later use to adorn their music with. Instead, the focus was to play the music as loud, and as fast, as humanly possible. They sounded rather like their contemporaries in drawing from the same overall musical milieu. A lot of bands from NWOBHM ("New Wave of British Heavy Metal") were covering a lot of the same territory, such as Black Sabbath, Diamond Head, Iron Maiden, Venom, Motorhead, early Def Leppard (think On Through the Night, their 1980 album, not their hair metal stuff), Saxon and other bands considered part of that movement..

Beginning with this record, and culminating in ... AND JUSTICE FOR ALL, Metallica changed their approach. Still retaining the aggression and attitude of punk, mixed with the loud, bone-crunching amalgamation heavy metal sound popularized the major bands of NWOBHM then put in progressive songwriting that owes as much to classical music as pop or rock or traditional heavy metal, and you have a good idea of what RIDE THE LIGTHENING, Master of Puppets, and ...And Justice For All sounds like. Those three records are what I call their progressive metal trilogy; with each album their song writing got more complex and more symphonic.

As much as I like KILL `EM ALL, this is the album in which Metallica really comes into their own.

One of the five albums that permit to Metallica to enter the Rock'n Roll Hall of Fame. You can hear classics like "For whom the bell tolls" but also pieces of anthology of metal music like "The call of Ktulu", "Fade to Black" or "Creeping death". If you like hard rock and metal, you won't be desapointed by this album.
Only a technical point. I used to see Elektra Music as the label on this album. The one sold here is different, maybe due to the fact it came from Germany instead of USA. However, the quality of the product is perfect.
