Ride the Lighting CD by Metallica 1Disc
The riffs and arrangements are intricate, the lyrics are intelligent and biting and James Hetfield's growl is mean. 'Ride The Lightning' is a slow (by Metallica's standards) dirge about the futility of war. 'Fade To Black' is a ballad that builds to an instrumental featuring the guitar melodies that the band would later base their sound around. The most ambitious song is a dense instrumental, 'The Call Of Ktulu,' that starts with a single arpeggiated guitar and slowly adds layer upon layer, building in intensity until it all comes crashing down nine minutes later.
