4 stars Metallica - 'Master of Puppets' 4.5 stars

The most important metal album ever made.

This is one of those albums that will be remembered for anyone that speaks of the genre we know as 'metal'. I think this album is an unbelievable one.because it is old and raw, but is varied quite a bit. The opening track 'Battery' says it all. A slow, awesome acoustic guitar starts it out, soon followed be a blast of drums and power chords, with a melody repeating afterwards, giving an epic feel for the track. The verse and chorus are both fast and powerful, and that guitar solos are pretty good, despite my hatred towards Kirk Hammett's guitar style.

The title track is the best known Metallica song, and everyone who has a guitar knows a line or two from this song. It is a real heavy one from the start but has a legendary breakdown towards the middle, and from there it goes into non-recurring territory for about 5 minutes, a clear masterpiece of music.

'Orion' is an instrumental and clear standout. This is definitely progressive territory, featuring plenty of shifts in the verse and chorus.

Other songs that were great were 'Sanitarium', 'Disposable Heroes' and the eerie ender 'Damage Inc.'. They were all very special tracks except for the uneventful 'The Thing That Should Not Be'.

An excellent piece of music.
