Ride the Lightning is often hailed by fans as a classic of the thrash metal genre, and a vital bridge between the band's albums Kill 'Em All and Master of Puppets, pushing the thrash metal of the debut into progressive territory more fully-realized on Master of Puppets and ...And Justice for All.
Ride the Lightning retains the speed of Kill 'Em All on songs like "Trapped Under Ice" and "Fight Fire with Fire", but also contains the first of Metallica's longer, more symphonically arranged tracks, such as "Fade to Black" and the nearly 9-minute closing instrumental "The Call of Ktulu".
Ride the Lightning was listed at #3 on a list compiled by metal-rules.com of the Top 100 Metal Albums of All Time and #5 by IGN Music on the Top 25 Metal Albums.
Metallica's 1984 second album is considered by some to be their best. Contains "Fade To Black", "For Whom The Bell Tolls" and concert favorite "Creeping Death".
"Ride the Lightning has ascended to an audiophile-reference standard. No metal record has ever clamed such magnificent width, height, and depth." - Bob Gendron, TAS August 2008
