I have never been a fan of Metallica, nor of Thrash Metal in general, but even I have to admit that Master Of Puppets is a good album. It is the band's best album and clearly a classic of the Thrash Metal genre. The progressive aspects are here and while heavily influenced by traditional Heavy Metal, Metallica did bring something new to the table as well. They have a sound of their own and they are clearly talented musicians. It is certainly understandable that they became hugely popular, even their music is not exactly my cup of tea.

Later Metallica albums would tend to follow the same formula as this one and in the 90's they would also lose much of their progressive edge. As such Master Of Puppets is the place to start with Metallica. One cannot deny that Metallica had an influence on progressive Metal together with Black Sabbath, Rainbow, Rush, Judas Priest and Iron Maiden.

A good album, but far from an essential component of any progressive Rock collection
