That is one of the hardest questions ever!!! Let's see, most of the time I say either Ride the Lightning or Master of Puppets, but honestly, at times it could be any of their first 5 albums. Lately I've been listening to Kill 'Em All non-stop, so I'm inclined to pick that one, but Ride the Lightning is what converted me and got me into metal (and kept me from rap or even worse. . .country! *winces in pain while gagging). Justice is their heaviest one, but I think it'd have to be one of the first 3. (The Black album has some awesome songs too, but there are a few on it that I don't listen to much). I don't know, it's a hard choice. So far I've narrowed it down to the first 3. That's good enough for me, lol.

I honestly wouldn't be able to make a distinction between their main albums: Master, Ride, Justice and Black. Those four are perfect and eternal, and i cannot say which one is better because i prefer one depending on my mood or how long it's been since i last listened to it. After those four i'd put Kill them all, then Garage days and the loads, and then St Anger i'd honestly erase it from their discography...it's a shame they released an album like that.

It's too close to call for me, between Ride the Lightning and Master of Puppets. Ride the lightning is more raw and edgy which I like. In Master of Puppets I think they took it to a whole nother level musically with the addition of Kirk Hammet, who at the time was pretty revolutionary in some of his approaches to lead guitar. Also during Master of Puppets I think hetfield and Cliff Burton really got into a groove when it came to songwriting.
