I got this album when I was in middle school, and thus began my venture into Metallica fandom. I love every track on this album...truly one of the classic thrash records of the 80's and all time. Highly recommended! (read more)

Metallica was my first foray ever into the world of metal. They were, for me, the most powerful messengers in terms of both lyrics and the perfectly chosen melodies to follow those powerful words. Master of Puppets was, simply, outstanding. From the first promising clean opening riff of Battery right through to the whispered "Damage Incorporated" with the final flourishing barre chords, Master of Puppets was a musical journey of perfection. Track by track ratings (out of five stars) for... (read more)

i love this album. Despite the fact i have only heard it 3 or 4 times i still remember the quality. It is a very popular album and i can understand why, it's brilliant. Metallica are obviously very skilled in writing music.
no songs are repetative and it's amazing metallica can memorise all of the bit's without mucking them up. It really packs a punch this one, i have to say even if it's quiet or you're reading a book or whatever else it really comes at you from all angles.
Wich brings me... (read more)

This album is beast. The grinding guitars will melt your face like ice cream on a 200 degree day. The drums will make your legs and arms pain just hearing them. Once I actually listened, the bass was awesome. This is an extremely similar format to Ride the Lighning, the bands second studio disc, with an extremely fast opening track and album namesake second track. They both only have one "softer" track(Fade to Black and Welcome Home Sanitarium), they both also have one instrumental track.... (read more)

Cliff Burton is the best bassist to every play in a band, ever. Battery, master of puppets, and orion showcase his bass ability. long live Cliff.

Unlike most metal today, the songs on this Metallica album actually mean something. The songs on Master of Puppets aren't just "look at me, I play guitar loud and go by nobody's rules but my own" songs. (read more)

In my time, there is the music I love and then there is Metallica. They were what got me into music and because of MASTER OF PUPPETS. I now love a variety of music including classical and jazz. (read more)

Once I charged the battery on my iPod I was able to listen to the opening monstrosity. Then my master commanded me to remove the puppets from my bed, as I was going to sleep. But the thing that should not be, is the fact that I got no Welcome Home from my friends in the Sanitarium that night. Fortunately they were all disposable, heroes in their minds. Later that night I had a visit from a Leper pretending to be a messiah, and curse me to Orion and back. Back the constellation would inflict... (read more)

Metallica, Master of Puppets focused on an anti war cover theme, and a title song that was literally aimed at the addicts of narcotics, this album is a step ahead of many other main stream bands of the time. Master of Puppets is a timeless master peice, of thrash and classical influence fused together to meet in the middle somewhere. Each song is as brilliant as the next, with songs like 'Orion' really explaining that the Metallica of yester year were much more than just a heavy act. They... (read more)

Metallica, whether you like it or not, were untouchable when they made Master of Puppets. Today they are still brilliant, but are just a fraction of what they used to be. Master Of Puppets is one of the best songs I've ever heard. The rest is just as good. Buy it. (read more)
