Metallica - Master Of Puppets
Some kind of monster?

Oh yes, but not just any kind, this is of the fiercest and most aggressive species, a kind that keeps haunting you when bitten once, like a werewolf, the feeling just never leaves you again and what a lucky situation to find yourself in.

Since every song is of extreme importance to this release, I will try to make the points about them I think in the best way will illuminate why this to me is such a amazing album and milestone in the history of Heavy Metal.

The relaxing acoustic beginning of Battery is only a neat trick. Before you know it hard drums set in and a riff that splits the ground hits right on, this ranks without any doubt among the best songs ever. The level of raw power is amazing and the variation in the drumming is no less than astonishing. If I'm feeling frustrated, this one works perfectly in getting something out my system.

Master Of Puppets is another immortal Metal creation. 8 ½ minutes put together in the most remarkable way. Let me just name some of its incredible highlights:

  • Of course the beginning, monster riffs that is more than legendary.
  • The raw vocal's from James, it is very apparent that he had developed a more mature and stronger voice through the years since their debut.
  • The well-written lyric dealing with the evils of control and lack of self-determination.
  • The melodic mid-section with great lead parts and a great tight bass approach.
  • Its complex nature with many changes towards the end.
  • Its powerful and extremely driving chorus.

The Thing That Should Not Be explores a dark mysterious lyric and musically we are dealing with some really heavy stuff. I simply love the way the bass creates a soothing gloomy atmosphere and the build-up to the thundering guitar riff also rules big time. A slow track packed with groove and an eerie atmosphere.

Welcome Home (Sanitarium) gives the album a welcomed breather, at least as long as it lasts.
The depressing story unfolding is delivered with great empathy and the sanitarium scenario just melts perfectly together with the dark mood in the beginning of the track, where acoustic guitar work of world-class and James' powerful vocals filled with angry emotion and frustration is presented.
Kirk delivers some unbelievable melodic lead stuff and the huge chorus is working in fantastic hymn-like style. And of course the raw up-tempo shift in the middle of the song must also be mentioned, as well as the song's last minute of powerful drumming.
I could go on with these brilliant parts and in every song if I had to, but you probably know them well so I'll try to restrain myself.

Eight minutes packed with raw, fast and unbound force, yes I'm talking about Disposable Heroes, a song that (like the rest) never ceases to amaze me. The intense flow that each of the songs different passages create is just spectacular and extremely well laid-out, spiced with mega tight guitar riffs and fantastic vocals.

Leper Messiah has a cool raw and tight rhythm-section with an impressive groove.
The only real critical remark I have with this album is found in this song and the source of lesser concern is the chorus that I find a bit too simple to be great, anyway this is nothing that in anyway alters my impression of a magnificent track and album.
The fast ending part kicks major ass and once again the verbal aspect is excellent throughout the track, the critical lyric about abusing religion is sung with just the right hard and angry vibe.

Cliff Burton (R.I.P.) puts out an astonishing achievement on this album; his bass glows with power and raw energy but also has some great melodic passages, like in the long atmospheric instrumental Orion. Again a cut with lots of change in structure, but not just any kind of change, these twist and turns are intelligent and innovative, when listening to it I kind of wander off in my mind and just let the great relaxing feeling take over and fill me with a nice reassuring mood, fuck it's almost therapeutic :).

Even tough the first section of Damage, INC also has a distant and calm profile this gets seriously smashed to the ground as the tempo explodes. Following in the same aggressive and intense vein as Battery, one album containing two songs of this fantastic style and immense quality is a real treat.
The solo is one of Kirks best, speed and technicality in grand combination, the drums are pounding like unlimited thunder and the bass lays a foundation of unbreakable solidity.

All four members display musical skill at the absolute highest level. Lars Ulrich has his very own tight and extremely detailed style and the guitars are seriously smoking with intensity and glowing with thrilling solos and huge riffs. It's just so apparent in every song that these guys created magic with this one.

Lyrically the album takes a critical stand about authority, war and religion, this works well in connection with the aggressive and angry profile found in the music and vocals. On another level Damage, INC can be interpreted in an "I'm doing things my own way" and "don't take any crap from anyone" way.
The overall quality of the words written is very high and many passages have some great lines that flow in an interesting and suitable direction.

When turning to the production evaluation I really have nothing critical to remark, taking into account the year of making Master Of Puppets has a raw, powerful and intense sound that balances the music perfectly.

If I should pick out one album that best combines aggressiveness with great musical skill and well-composed tracks this would be the one, it's simply a timeless classic in all aspects.
Eight songs that all work geniusly in their own respect and with their own qualities and styles making this a highly varied and forever grandiose achievement.

Here I think most of you got it right.Hell it was my first ever MetallicA album(talk of luck)and I just couldn't believe my ears(still can't).Some people say Reign In Blood is the best metal album ever,here i have to disagree,Master Of Puppets is the greatest Metal achievement ever(Its only drawback is that it does not contain as many songs as we would like!!).It also showed that Cliff Burton (RIP) is one of the greatest bassists ever.11/10

Great review!

The album is nothing but a masterpiece. Metallica´s best up to date and maybe the best metal album ever. 10/10

Comment by Dhritiman Sarma (Anonymous) - Tuesday, March 9, 2004
one of my favorite metal albums
my favs in this album are
welcome home
disposable heroes
damage inc
master of puppets

unless u listen to orion , u can't realise metallica's talent, 'n it's better than call of ktulu
the 1st part starts with rock 'n disco mix
'n after that the 2nd solo with classical riff
a nice instrumental
an indication to s & m project of late 1990s

buy this album

if u wanna contact me

Metallica is just another thrash band. Slayer Show no Mercy and hell awaits are true metal and thrash. Im sick of these homos trying to mix metal and feelings like oh im so angry! gr! fk metallica. mAster of puppets? have you ever wondered how corny that is. metallica are just poser thrashers who cant hack it so they sing about like being upset or somthing. fk that. thats classic rock. give me metal.

Comment by Pat (Anonymous) - Sunday, June 13, 2004
Not too enthousiastic about this one. Most of the songs are too simplistic, and the fact that they're still long doesn't help. I'd give Battery, Master Of Puppets, and Welcome Home a listen, the rest I get tired of too quickly. Overall, a 7 in my book. Everything went downhill after Kill Em All and Ride The Lightning.

Comment by Pat (Anonymous) - Sunday, June 13, 2004
Another thing... if you think Metallica's the only true metal band, you've been living under a rock bud. Exploring music is my hobby, this band is overrated.

Comment by Louie Villadolid (Anonymous) - Sunday, June 20, 2004
VERY TRUE!!! this album totally is a heavy metal masterpiece. In fact its the best heavy matal album ever as rated in may magazines and polls. Every track is a masterpiece and a brilliant composition. Metallica truly is the best metal band that ever existed.

Comment by Lemet (Anonymous) - Friday, July 2, 2004
The best of the best, simple, no more questions or comments The Master of Puppets is the Grandiose material made by gods.

Comment by Pat (Anonymous) - Friday, August 27, 2004
It's the best rated, since it's the only metal band that EVERYONE knows about. How can you guys overlook Kill 'Em All? This calls for another review.

Comment by Sean Demura (Anonymous) - Sunday, September 5, 2004
Damage, Inc. has to be their best work I've ever heard, BUT ITS TOO SHORT!

That song is so intense and in your face. :-D


Comment by Ba*D (Anonymous) - Sunday, September 26, 2004
this is not my favorite metallica album although it contains one of their best song(MOP)
on this album i like:
Master of puppets,orion,Battery and sanitarium.
i would say that ride the lighning is a better album becose there are only 2 songs i don love (Escape and trapped under ice)
but dont get me wrong i love this album:)
kill em all was not better than this album, Kirk had played for 2 weeks for the band when they recorded kill em all, if was full of speedy not so melodic mustaine like solos, if ure into the kill em all songs u should check out /-\NT][RA>< they have 10 albums that sound just the same
i would mop 9/10
btw its not like i dont like the rest of the songs i just dont think they are as god as many on the trax on rtl.

new metallica sux , really.

old metallica is gold, really.

Comment by anti metallicaca (Anonymous) - Thursday, February 17, 2005
alcoholica sucks shit, they are just a bunch of maiden/ megadeth ripoff artists with thier little bitch faggot drummer, and thier ted nugget wannabee singer, and thier tonedeaf hamlet guitar jackass and no stable bass player because they are too busy screwing them over as much as they screw over mustaine.

Comment by Guy (Anonymous) - Wednesday, February 23, 2005
You dumbass how can metallica be a megadeth rip off when megadeth formed after kill 'em all when dave mustaine was kicked out of metallica and decided to create a band, so he was inspired by his previous band to create music like it, not the other way round and metallica are completely different genre of metall to maiden so i sugest you get your facts right before you decide to disgrace the name of metallica with the shit you just said, metallica are the greatest band of all time and allways will be and for all those of you that hate nu-metallica well all i can say is give it a go, beacuse i really used to hate the nu-metallica stuff to, but i gave load a try and quite liked it after listening to the whole album, S&M is an amazing album and Garage inc is fucking good too, so dont take ther piss out of the nu stuff till you've truly listened to it, RIP Cliff

Comment by Josue (Anonymous) - Saturday, April 2, 2005
Yeah, probably my favourite album, (hmmm... maybe 2nd to Pantera's Vulgar Display of Power). Kirk Hammett inspired my to learn soloing on guitar, he kicks so much ass, you know a guitarist is good when he can send a chill down your spine with a solo.

Ah ok then, well it sounds like Steen likes Ride the Lightning so I can guess what the review would say. By the way is Ulrick a fan of Metallica cause it seems he can't get enough of Iron Maiden (rightly so)
P.S Yeah ...And Justice for All is one of my fav's.

If anyone asks me what's the best metal albym ever, well ,i couldn't answer.Every album from all the GODLIKE bands are unique.Reing In Blood,The Number Of The Beast,Night Of The Stormrider,Blizzard Of Ozz,Black Albym,Cowboys From Hell etc.But,on the other hand,the UNBELIEVABLE-EXTRAORDINARY!!! melody of MASTER OF PUPPETS and especially the lyrics-came from our hard reality-gave,gives and will always give something to believe in and rely on,real MUSIC...And Justice For All

Freaking awesome album!!!

Comment by Rob (Anonymous) - Monday, April 17, 2006
If you don't rate this LP a 10 then you might not know metal.
Let's face it everything ever said about this album is nothing short of awe.Unless you are a total dumbass and want to argue for the fuckin sake of arguing then you know that MOP is what metal was meant to be.Don't believe me or just wanna cut to the chase then just listen to the first and last songs on this fucker and tell me where I can find something better.I'll be waiting but I am afraid that will be forever.
20 years after it's release and it still has never been approached in greatness by Metallica or any other metal band.
Without a doubt a must own LP and every listener can remember the first time they were assaluted by this masterpiece.
The importance of this LP and the landmark in metal can't be disputed or underscored enough.In my opinion the greatest LP ever relaesed in metal and you would also have to rank it right up there with any music effort by and band.
Thanks Metallica for my favorite LP EVER!

Comment by TASOS GR. (Anonymous) - Thursday, April 20, 2006
It seems that i'm not understood.MOP f***s every other album!!!!its the f***ing best ever album!!!!melody,lyrics,speed,anger,technical playing in every instument!this album grows generations.metallica wont be better from now on cuz they created MASTER OF PUPPETS!they cant be better.a lot of bands have incredibly great albums but...they are not METALLICAAAAAAAAAAAAA.GOD wanted a band and HE created METALLICA to make THIS MASTER PIECE!and so they made it.i dont care for u gyuz 'n your comments,i know one thing M E T A L L I C A ruled,rules and will alwyas f***ing rule as long this earth exists!!!!!!!!!!!!

Okay all u Metallica Haters out there listen up.....U NEEEEEEED TO SHOOT UR SELF. MEgadeath has NOTHING on metallica. Dave wishes he was as good as KIrk...KIRK is the god of guitar.....beside stevie ray(R.I.P)....MOP is the best album of all time, i dont care who u are. If u disagree u can go FUCK urself.
MEgadeath SUCKS BALLZZZZZZZZ. METALLICA are the gods of MEtal and Exodus is Prince. Listen to Damage inc then listen to peace sells.. KIRK KICKS DAVES ASSSSSSSS HARD.
CLIFF may u rest in peace and i hope u are thrashing in heaven.

Comment by Nathan Lynch (Anonymous) - Friday, April 27, 2007
Can I just mention a fact to the people calling down the metal giants called Metallica. Metallica have sold over 60 million albums worldwide (not including January 2003 onwards by the way). More than most bands or artists could ever dream of. Hoagie..... Slayer are a great thrash band, theres no denying it... but Metallica are far better than Slayer. And for slagging off the songwriting... have you ever written a song about your feelings?? Is extremely hard to do it without going over the top...

best album EVER!!!... james and lars sucks... i hate them..
but a love metallica!!!
master of puppets es el mejor disco de la historia!

Comment by ripper (Anonymous) - Wednesday, August 1, 2007
megadeth got teh second best album rust in peace...
master is better, but that is couse tallica had cliff, james and lars...
megadeth just dave...
i really don´t care about the whole james-lars-dave love triangle...
the 2 bands are great, so, why we care about the guys? a care about the bands, the music, not the members...

if metallica goes farther is couse they don´t talk about politics like anthrax and megadeth. so they where in every radio station... that is so bad?
the easy road, the hard road...

the worst thing of metallica is how they see thay fans... that is he real problem...

but still been the greatest metal band ever! (not the best)

Ripper your review is very strange to me!...Megadeth didn't just have Dave , they also had Marty Friedman (one of the worlds greatest guitar players ever) & Nick Menza on drums (Whom I personally like better than Lars Ulrich....although I think Lars is a great drummer!!!)....."Master Of Puppets" & Megadeth's "Rust In Peace" I give both albums 10/10 , they are both flawless , with excellent musicianship and great lyrical content!!!!

It´s not difficult to rate Master of Puppets.
We're talking about a rock masterpiece. Only few bands achieved to release such a good record. It's difficult to make an outstanding release..But do that in the right time...In the right place...With the right people.....Well that's only for few.

This Album will be remembered as one of the most important rock/metal Statements of all time.
In the same level as:

1970 Black Sabbath's Black Sabbath
...The beginning

1972 Deep Purple's Machine Head
...Just listen Highway Star..I Believe Steve Harris and Bruce put this one in their top 5..

1976 Priest's Sad Wings of Destiny
..It's not a music masterpiece..But surely a masterpiece of its time. The beginning of NWOBH

1980 Maiden's Iron Maiden
...Everybody who were into Metal heard this one over and over again..Just ask Hetfield, Mustaine, Geoff Tate, Alex Skolnick, Kerry King, Scott Ian, Kay Hansen & all the 80's icons. It´s not Maiden's best, but probably the most important.

Master is a definitely a 10/10
