Sentenced to repeated listenings of Metallica's "Ride the Lighting".
Awesome!! I'm listening to that right now, and have been for 10 of the last 15 hours (the ones where I wasn't asleep).
It used to be my least favorite of their four good albums (or shall we say "the four albums which I formally recognize as Metallica," ha ha) but now I like it just as much as the other three.
I've got a bookcase stereo from 1989 out in my garage that I refer to the "Dedicated Metallica Machine." I have dubs (made in about 1988) of "Kill 'Em All" and "Ride the Lightning" in the cassette deck, one album on each side, and that's all I allow to be played on that machine, on continuous auto-repeat when needed. Personally I might like "Ride" the best of the four real Metallica records, though if I could delete "One" forever, then "Justice" would be a tie for first place. I know people worshipped (and worship) "Pastor of Muppets," but it never clicked for me for some reason. "Kill 'Em" has a lot of good shite, though.
P.S. "South of Heaven" is my fave Slayer. So there.
