a pretty special year for me....14 yrs old. I used to nick most of these from my bros room to play cos I had hardly any money!!

 

I remember I had Bon Jovi, iron Maiden, Marillion, Steve Perry and White Snake on cassette and that was it!

 

You really listened to an album to death in those days. Thats why some of them are so special now :-)

Metallica - Ride The Lightning the band's best release in my opinion and quite possibly the greatest Thrash Metal release ever.
