Product Description

Product Description

Metallica's third LP redefines what has unfortunately been dubbed 'thrash metal': without the dubious benefit of singles or videos, items that Metallica remain less that interested in, Master Of Puppets sells a million in the U.S. alone. Certified at 5 million units by the RIAA. (2/01)

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

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

Well here we go again. In 1984, it was Ride The Lightning. Now in 1986 it's Master of puppets. It's impossible to say which CD is better therefore if your new to Metallica....get them both. Here's my review of Master of Puppets.
1. Battery 10/10. One of the greatest opening songs for any album in rock history. Spanish guitar intro and then the thrash comes in.
2. Master of Puppets 10/10. INCREDIBLE! Name another band that can manage to keep you entertained for 8 and a half minutes. One of Hammet's best solos in the middle.
3. The Thing That Should Not Be 10/10. Very slow for Metallica standards. Very heavy for Metallica standards. Kickass
4. Sanitarium 11/10. Best song on the album. hetfield's vocals are so deep and perfect and the song ends with a blistering solo.
5. Disposable Heroes 10/10. Another 8 minute epic. one of the greatest Metallica chorouses ever. BACK IN THE FRONT!
6. leper Messiah 9/10. Not as bad as Escape on RTL but definitely the weakest on this track. Good though.
7. Orion 10/10. THE Metallica instrumental. Perfection and better than Ktulu.
8. Damage, Inc. 10/10. Great way to end the album. Only song with lousy vocals but heavy.
Metallica are the second greatest rock band ever behind only Lep Zepplin. As another reviewer said, Black sabbath invented metal but METALlica perfected it.

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!!

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!

Metallica, for starters, is, and always will be, in my mind, the greatest band of all time. An this album was Metallica at their absolute best. The tracks:
"Battery"-A great song to kick off an album, it's fast and hard-hitting.
"Master of Puppets"-A classic, Metallica's take on drug abuse slips gracefully from smooth melodies to heavy riffs.
"The Thing That Should Not Be"-Another great, this one carries on the powerful tone of the first two tracks.
"Welcome Home(Sanitarium)"-Metallica's lyrical description of insanity is presented wonderfully in this smooth/hard assault on our senses.
"Disposable Heroes"-Perhaps the weakest song on the album, it is still by no means a disappointment.
"Leper Messiah"-One of my alltime favourite songs, this
'religious' tune contains one of the coolest beats in a metal track.
"Orion"-In my mind, the best of the Metallica instrumental tracks.
"Damage, Inc."-A great ass-kicking anthem, this closes the album off with feeling.

When no fewer than five albums released by a band are in contention for the #1 slot in the band's catalog, there is clearly some magic afoot. Metallica ... was no exception. Its fan base can be divided into five separate camps, each one favoring a different album (Kill, Ride, Puppets, Justice, Black).
After due deliberation, I deem Master of Puppets the best of Metallica's works (and tied w/Maiden's "Somewhere in Time" for best metal album). The tracks on here range from great (Thing That Should Not Be, Damage Inc.) to simply mind-blowing (title track, Sanitarium, Disposable Heroes, Orion). All members perform some true wizardry on their instruments (be sure to check out the Hetfield/Hammett duet on the title track, Lars's drumming on "Disposable Heroes", and Cliff's bassing on "Orion". If you fancy metal or classical music (there is quite a bit of classical influence in 80s Metallica albums), Puppets is a must-buy. If not, it is still a must-buy. You'll notice I said Metallica WAS no exception, because, um, well ... listen to St. Anger and my choice of tense will become clear :(
Well, my lunch break is over. More reviews to follow!
