2 stars Master Of Puppets Cover

If the artist of this cover album was not "Dream Theater", I wouldn't want to give a sneak peak of this album, because it has no notable modification to the real album by Metallica. Well at a point I was wondering maybe DT guys wanted to praise Metallica guys, but a cover album with the exactly same song composition just don't do it for me. Plus, James LaBrie didn't sing "quite similar" to James Hetfield.

The music is alright, with additional points go to Jordan Rudess, who nicely managed to "transform" his keyboard to a guitar, as an addition to John Petrucci's. And again, sorry if maybe James LaBrie is reading this, he just can't be Hetfield, which makes me put this album at the back of my "album collection rack".

In conclusion, I reckon this album is for collector only, maybe for a die hard Dream Theater fan and Metallica fan. Two stars for the decent cover album, musicianship and the selection of the album. Master Of Puppets is probably the best of the best metal album out there.
