5 stars I'm going to review the album Kill 'Em All by the legendary Thrash Metal band Metallica. This is Metallica's best work IMO. This is where all the energy is! This has a very raw and bad production, but I couldn't care less, considering they couldn't afford for a better production. The album starts very well with the song 'Hit The Lights', the whole album is aggressive and fest. Some of the songs were written by their previous guitarrist, Dave Mustaine, current Megadeth's Guitarrist/Vocalist. I've heard many people say that this album is too raw in terms of writing, but well, that's obvious! This was the birth of Thrash Metal, it's normal that it's raw, they haven't got any other Thrash Metal bands as an influence or to guide them. This was Metallica taking their influences of Punk and New Wave of Brittish Heavy Metal, putting them in a blender, and creating my favorite Metal genre, Thrash Metal! This is an unique album, it means a lot to me and I'm sure it also means a lot to all the Thrashers or Metallica fans out there. I'm going to give five stars on this album, it's not a progressive rock album, but it diserves those five stars! I want to finish this review by saying that Dave Mustaine diserves a lot of recognizement due to the fact that he wrote many songs on this record.
