Fuck I loved those first three Metallica albums. When Ride the Lightning came out it changed my musical life. When they finally made it to Tucson for the first time in 1986 (opening for Ozzy) I was as excited as I've ever been (before or since) for the show. They definitely didn't disappoint though I would have loved to have seen the tour on this thread. I'm just grateful I got to see them with Cliff - in my opinion they were never the same after he died.
