|Ride The Lightning Improved|
i was getting really bugged by the postion of fade to black in the track listing and started to think where it would be better off. then i thought i might as well do the whole thing.
For Whom The Bell Tolls
They almost got it in the right place at number two, but i think it would be a better opener with the du du du dun dunderrr
|2||Ride The Lightning|
This is fine.
|3||Trapped Under Ice|
Despite being a great tune, where it is it kills the ending to fade to black. here it could just build on the awesomeness of rtl.
|4||The Call of Ktulu|
This'll carry on the good stuff, but make everyone concentrate again, and change the mood which will important for the slight comedown of the next couple of songs.
weakest track on the album, still good but there are others deserving of more important positions. hopefully it wont get too much in the way here.
|6||Fight Fire With Fire|
The only other iffy track, not bad again, but suffers from being the opener, which for whom the bell tolls would do better. here though it may have to lose the acoustic opening.
Could be a good lead into Fade to Black, similar tone? i don't know, just sounds like it would work.
|8||Fade To Black|
Surely the fucking name of the song means it should be at the end, let alone the the song itself. awesome solos to finish the album with
|maybe they'd still be playing in bars with this track listing or maybe it would make no difference at all but whatever.|
i didn't try to pointlessly move songs which is why two are in the same place.
|Interesting list idea, can't say that I agree with your positionings, though.|
I've always thought that Creeping Death would be a cool opener.
|good shout i just think it would be easier to lead off from for whom the bell tolls, starting witth creeping death would be hard to carry on from as it's one of the harder and faster tracks on the album.|
saying that though i almost put it first, and it has a great intro itself.
|I like the idea, but 'The Call Of Ktulu' is best left for last. The end is so epic, and is a perfect way to close the album. And 'Fight Fire With Fire' is a perfect intro track.|
|I really can't imagine fight fire... on any other position than #1, that's like a perfect opener. |
btw has anybody noticed how metallica has similar track positioning on RTL, MOP and AJFA? they start with one of the faster, thrashy songs (ffwf, battery, blackened) then comes the title track, ballads are always #4, and instrumentals are always near/at the end
|it sounds to me though that fight fire with fire would be better on kill em all and doesn't really fit as well with this, so that's why i don't think it's a great introduction to the album.|
and yeah, i've noticed that spirit
|i getting was getting|
|oops cheers man. edited|
|just switch creeping death and call of ktulu and you'll be good.|
|yeah, thought I was being capt. obvious again :D |
but fight fire with fire on kill em all? really? :/
|i think it's more in that style, just old, fast all out thrash.|
|I like the album as it is tbh.|
|it would be a better album if they replaced all the songs with songs by pretty much any other band|
|You think too much about silly things, like metallica albums.|
|metallica can suuck my anal cavity|
