Product Description

Amazon.ca

One of the defining albums of thrash metal, Master of Puppets is arguably Metallica's best album (as well as their last with bassist Cliff Burton). Focusing on the concept of power and abuses thereof, this is a collection of complex, intelligent music, played at about a hundred miles an hour. Not that these are short songs; this eight-song album clocks in at over an hour, which makes it all the more impressive that not one moment on this recording is boring. In tackling various approaches to their subject, Metallica is insightful lyrically as well as musically: "Welcome Home (Sanitarium)" is from the point of view of an institutionalized inmate and "Disposable Heroes" is the perspective of a soldier. If all you've heard of Metallica is what's been on the radio recently, check this one out. You're in for a surprise. --Genevieve Williams

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Metallica album ever May 22 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This was the first Metallica album I owned on vinyl & it is still their best effort. Bought this so it would help my productivity at work & boy does it ever. Makes you wonder what could have been if Cliff Burton had not passed away at such a young age.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is Metallica's Best Album! Aug. 30 2004
Format:Audio CD
This was the last CD that Metallica released before the death of bassist Cliff Burton. It contains the heart pounding riffs, harsh vocals, and thundering drums that made this band famous. Master of Puppets is an awesome collection of some of Metallica's best songs. It's an essential piece in any Metallica fans collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Metallica CD Ever Made! Aug. 5 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is the most exciting album Metallica ever made! Don't let the classical guitar intro to "Battery" fool you, this cd kicks a**! If you care about great thrash metal bands like Metallica, buy this album, don't download it! Show your pride for metal, buy this cd, show people the evil devil's horns hand signal, and keep on listening to loud heart punding music until you're six feet underground!

Obey your master and buy this piece of art! Metallica's third album is not only metallica's best, but to me is also the best heavy metal album ever made. Kill 'em all was awesome, ride the lightning, epic.... Master is.. GOD!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Metallica Album. Ever. (late review) Aug. 14 2007
By ...
Format:Audio CD
Metallica has been going in a downward slope ever since Metallica (self-titled) until St. Anger was the nail on the coffin. However, don't let that change your thoughts to get this album, even though it may seem a bit intimidating.

8 songs, all which are over 5 minutes? This is the length of a normal cd once you listen through, it will be your money's worth, not to mention if you are getting tired of bands that don't provide guitar solos, here is your choice cd.

The topics in Master Of Puppets are quite wide assorted, some are about politics, another is control by a mightier being, the perils of war, etc. all of the songs are interesting, unless you don't like Orion, which is an insturmental.

Now, just because there isn't a parental advisory sticker on it doesn't mean that it is bad, that it is the brain of a moron. At least try to listen to this with an open mind and if you can't you can't handle this genre of music.

5/5

5.0 out of 5 stars ABSOLUTELY THE BEST HEAVY METAL ALBUM OF ALL-TIME July 21 2006
By Vader
Format:Audio CD
Metallica is the best heavy metal band of all-time. Arguments can be made for both Led Zepplin and Black Sabbath as the best metal of all-time- but no one has had more impact or influenced more bands than Metallica. Master of Puppets is one wild ride from start to finish. Master of Puppets is heavy metal at its absolute best. Master of Puppets, Damage Inc and Leper Messiah are the best songs on this album.

2006 is the twenty-year anniversary of this classic album and you know something, it's a great album.

THIS IS A MUST-HAVE FOR EVERY HEAVY METAL FAN. THIS IS A GREAT ALBUM!!
