1. Metallica - Ride The Ligthning (1984)
A great year. I was born and this album was released.
Hard to imagine now, but there were complaints that FTB uses acoustic guitars!!!! Trolls, they already existed...
A more "finetuned" album than KEM, it's still crushing, or do you consider fight Fire With Fire fluff? Still the best opening song ever btw.
There isn't a bad song on this disc, and I can safely say that this is my most played album.
Favorite track: Fight Fire With Fire
