Metallica: Reload

Sound — 8
Master of Puppets is Metallica's best and most famous album, it involves the genius songs from Battery, Sanatarium, Leper Messiah, and the album title Master Of Puppets, this album is almost perfect, its only downfall is the recording quality...this has nothing to do with James, Kirk, Lars and Jason's playing, just the lack of recording quality in the 80's, although it was better than that of the incredably disapointing quality in the their most recent album St. Anger...oh well besides the point Master of Puppets is a F**CKING AMAZING album its just the lack of good quality recording of the bass.

As we all know James is a Lyrical god, and Master of Puppets Did not disappoint, I mean who can forget "Master of Puppets are pulling your strings"...and I think this has to be the best James sings on any album... he goes for the deep voiced sailor in St. Anger (still a f**cking kick ass album)... and in Kill 'Em All... well his balls hadn't quite dropped yet and he sounded like a small child... once again still a genius piece of work... going back to master of puppets, James did what Metallica is famous for Loud guitars and heavy yet meaning full lyrics. Nice f**king work James.

Overall Impression — 10
Master Of Puppets beats any album on the face of this or any other planet, every song is full of Loud Riffs, soft sentimental bridges, Genius Solos (Kirk did not disappoint once again), and head banging lyrics that will always get any crowd excited at any consert... Master...Master...Metallica you're f**cking Genius.
