Metallica - Ride The Lightning 6CD/3LP/DVD Box Set
Metallica's sophomore album Ride The Lightning available as a Deluxe Boxset including 4LPs/6CDs/1-DVD w/book, mini book with handwritten lyrics, and poster set (3 posters from European tour in 1984). Incredibly ambitious for a one-year-later sophomore effort, Ride the Lightning finds Metallica aggressively expanding their compositional technique and range of expression. Every track tries something new, and every musical experiment succeeds mightily. The lyrics push into new territory as well -- more personal, more socially conscious, less metal posturing.
