Metallica: Master of Puppets

Sound — 10
The greatest heavy metal album of all time. Raw in sound, if you have'nt heard it then you are illiterate as far as heavy metal is concerned. Metallica were officially the undisputed kings of metal when this album released. Master Of Puppets came out when sissi metal bands like Bon Jovi used to be happening. Metallica's music reflected the way they talked and lived. They never moved with the trends. Metallica would never put on make up and go to the stage like Kiss or Zepplin. They were and are the masters of metal. This album is just another example of Metallica's sheer aggresive talent.

Lyrics — 10
The lyrics had everything in it whether it is the title track Master Of Puppets or the rebellious Welcome Home (Sanitarium). No band will ever touch the legacy of James, Lars, Kirk or Newsted. Jamez is argubally the most influential figures of metal. His voice is one of the best in the history of metal along with Lemmy of Motorhead.

Overall Impression — 10
This album is right up there with the best in terms of lirics, vocals drums, guitar you name it. The greatest song of the album will have to be Master Of Puppets. But the other songs like Damage Inc. and Sanitarium are brilliant too. If you lose this album or it some how gets misplaced or if you dont have the album you better got the stores and buy it. This is one of the greatest if not the greatest album in the history of metal.
