Master Of Puppets

by Metallica

Description The first song "master of puppets" pretty much explains how a metal riff should sound. I think if you're looking for ideas, this will give you a few.

This is Classic Metal. However, their previous full length, Ride the Lightning is overall superior. For those whom are mainly interested in lead guitar, Hammett's lead playing on Ride the Lightning is far more emotional and overall exciting than on this. Master of Puppets is mainly Hetfield's showcase, as his down picking riffs are some of the most outstanding examples of imaginative, innovative rythm playing in any genre. For me, Master of Puppets was sadly the last Metallica album to astound, their output just got progressively worse after. The follow up to Master of Puppets, which was ...And Justice For All, was a major disappointment for me. It just seemed on that album that they had completely exhausted the style for the time, and needed to take a break from touring. Now, look what they are.Awful.

This is the epitome of Metallica- their heaviest and most effective album. Great riffage, great solos. If you only own 1 metallica album, this should be it.

This was a good album for Metallica. I like Master of Puppets but some of the other songs aren't my favorites. If you like Metallica, you'll like this CD.
