Ride the Lightning is my...sixth favorite. But yes it's a great album with some of their best songs.
Yeah, Load is very good indeed. A couple of songs too long, but the amount of great songs clearly outweighs the cons of the album.I gave Load a listen in full for the first time yesterday. Knew a handful of songs already, "King Nothing" among them, which is one of my favourite Metallica songs so went into it with an open mind. Quite surprised at how dismissive people can be of it. Sure, it's a little overlong and has some "un-Metallica" moments in there ("Hero of the Day" sounds like a country band) but there are a lot of really cool songs in there and it has such a badass swagger about it, I really enjoyed it. "House That Jack Built" is quickly becoming one of my new favourite Metallica tracks, really liked the mysterious-sounding riff and the heavy, chugga-chugga verses. That verse feels like a precursor to "Dream No More" to me, which is another of my favourites.
Reload is even better imo.
The best songs are not 80s Thrash Metallica of course, but they are good for what they are.
The song changes up slightly after it finishes and we enter an instrumental piece that starts out well enough with some cool dual guitar stuff. The solo itself isn't the best thing ever, and it feels like its building up to something even better but is taking a while to get there. Finally it starts to rise higher and higher before it reaches the peak and then... the song just fades... to black. A bit too early and it feels like wasted potential.
Well my favorite Maiden album is Powerslave, so...Funny, to me MOP is their Powerslave; Half filler.
The "fillers" are actually mostly very good songs, just like on Powerslave. But The Thing That Should Not Be is boring as hell. Maybe my least favorite Metallica song.Well my favorite Maiden album is Powerslave, so...
Just off a first listen, there’s one obvious weaker song to my ears and even it’s fairly strong. The rest are fucking awesome. Let’s see how well it holds up with relistens.
Absolutely. The other 3 thrashers, Kill, Ride and Justice, all have an edgy quality to their sound which keeps them fresh. Puppets has a cosseted, woolly atmosphere.I thought so too when I first heard it like 30 years ago. But it somehow gets old and a chore to listen to. RTL is somehow always fresh
