1. Ride the Lightning is their best album, most people will argue about that but actually, if you don't take AC/DC into account it's the best album in the world with all tracks being very good and 4 of them being exceptional (fade to black, trapped under ice, creeping death, call of cthulhu - in the order they appear on the album), this just doesn't happen this days (or very rarely in music at all).
2. Although many people praise the S&M album, it actually sucks. With the exception of a tale Of Wolf and Man, which is performed even better than the original (hence, it's worth to buy this album just for this song alone).
3. I know it was supposed to be just 2 facts, but another one would be that it's pointless to buy any Metallica album from Load on.
Thank you for reading this. I hope you agree (if you don't = you don't like Metallica).
And now something to make your time spent on reading this blog worthwile:
And remember, this is their best album. Hands down.
