A lot of really great songs on here honestly, Halo on Fire, Spit out the Bone, Atlas Rise, Moth into Flame, but it's just a tad bit overstuffed. If I would rate both discs individually it would be

disc 1: 4.25/5 (Only song I don't really care for on disc 1 is the t/t tbh, disc 1 is kickass man)

disc 2: 3.25/5 (Definitely considerably weaker than disc 1, disc 2 almost seems like B-sides to disk 1 as well, if maybe Confusion and SotB was put onto disc 1 it would have been a very very solid 8 track Metallica album, and easily up to a 4.5 imo)

So rounds up to about a 3.8/5 for both discs together

The year is 1984. I first discover Ride The Lightning in November of the year. It was snowing outside and it was very cold men. I put record on,, It start with medival style music, and then when in calm place? Thunder guitar take control! This is great start for this record men. Lars Ulrich is the drums for this record and at end of song, he is the lightning with bass pedal and snare madness! After this song the name of record is a song and plays well. For Whom The Bell Tolls is up and it deliver best of Metallica riff by Cliff Burton. He play guitar men? hhehehe this is bass! I can believe this. Then best Metallica song is playing,, soft music and guitars. Fade To Black is hitting me hard and it build up with epic solo and chill feeling of depressed. Trapped Under Ice brings energy back to the life here with great open riff by James Hetfield. Escape is starting up and Kirk Hammett is playing on the leads here men. This is song of good structure and deliver a good fade out ending. Here we go men! This moment we wait for! Creeping Death! This song is Metallica well known effort and it is personal favorite of my listens today. This song is about the times of Bible in Christian lore men. I believe this happen and is scary song. The end is no vocals and has great style for close the album up. The Call Of Ktulu is epic! Dave Mustaine has wrote this song when he was playing with the Metallica men,, if you did know. The last riff of song end this record and it is best way to ever end. I have never listen to better ending for any recording and I listen to many metal! This is all I say about Ride The Lightning. Thank for reading and apology for english is not good

Yeah I don't get it. Spit Out the Bone is one of the best tracks post-AJFA they've even released. There's a bit of middling, meandering shit that could've been cut, but this album is fine.

yeah this could've done without pretty much half of disc two, and "Dream No More" really wore off, but the rest is about as good as Death Magnetic if not better.
