Classic Record Reviews: Master of Puppets

Hello, this is Classic Record Reviews: Master of Puppets. This is no album for wimps. This is a great album. My favorite part of this is the lyrics " the weak are ripped and torn away..." That's awesome. What makes it awesome is how James Hetfield sings it. It is also about batteries. Interesting... The subject of drug corruption runs deep in " Master of Puppets." It is an interesting topic as well as batteries. This album is the bridge between "light" death metal and heavy metal. Not having grumbly mumbling singing but the music in a death metal way. I'd been informed that " the thing that should not be" was inspired by H.P. Lovecraft like other songs. This album was good , but some of the music was not to my liking all of the singing was good though. The end.

  2. This was my first Metallica tape. Actually, it was my sisters, but she left it in my walkman, so I acquired it. I liked it for sure, but when I was 10 I found a warped copy of Ride the Lightning and even though it's a little slower and dirgier at times, I think it totally wins. thanks Ezra!

  7. This was also in heavy rotation on my boombox when I was nine. Then I started listening to Morbid Angel.
