Ride the Lightning is an ambitious metal album that tries to do a little too much, and I honestly think Metallica lost their way with this one. Promo copies have a post-manufacture hot-foil gold stamp on the back of the sleeve: "Loaned For Promotion Only.

FWIW, I purchased it new and while it came with the merchandise flyer it also came in a clear plastic inner, not the printed one. Make no mistake, this is a great, highly ambitious album that certainly has its moments, but as the follow up to Kill Em All, it is rather underwhelming.Products labelled '*item fulfilled by Exertis on behalf of hmv' will be supplied to you directly by Exertis via their approved couriers. Garage Days Re-Revisited' is a covers EP by Metallica, released in August 1987, featuring their versions of tracks by Diamond Head, Budgie, Holocaust, Killing Joke and The Misfits. No matter what anyone may say about their Load/Reload or St Anger records and their faults, this is true Metallica and is a credit to the band! My only minor niggle is that a cd that is in a cardboard sleeve maybe could do with being sent out in sturdier packaging. you can really hear the growl, the attack of his bass is amazing, also, this pressing is just a really great piece of history, my copy came with the flyer so it's always nice to have something so important for music history, i give this pressing 10/10 on the Historical aspect of it and 9/10 on sound, cause it sounds beautiful, but maybe i would've liked a little bit more bass.

This was partly because bassist Cliff Burton introduced the basics of music theory to the rest of the band and had more input in the songwriting. I'm convinced that (the songs) "Escape," and "Creeping Death," weren't made by Metallica, but by a symphonic metal band playing speed metal.

The first thing that bothers me with this album is how very few moments of thrash metal are on here, and yeah, at the time this album was made, thrash metal barely existed as a term, let alone had a definition, but a few of the songs barely sound made by the same band that made Kill Em All.
