Man they really took themselves serious back in the day huh? 8 songs in 54 minutes attests as much. There’s a certain churning pleasure to be found here, and when it gets chunky it gets good. But I don’t know if long and repetitive necessarily equals masterful. And this from a man who actually likes Tool. I’m giving it 3 stars because I gave Black Sabbath the same and I like this better. From henceforth let’s imagine I gave Black Sabbath 2 stars, okay?
A very busy weekend which meant I didn't get around to listening to this and, frankly, I'm relieved. I did my time with this and other Metallica albums in my teenage years. I don't need to go back there.
i've been eyeing this one, too. fantastic album, and it takes me straight back to the days of bmx bikes and climbing cliffs and hanging out in sketchy attics with sketchy people. damage inc is an awesome way to cap off any album there is, too.
The distillation of all the best bits of Metallica across 54 minutes of brutal, aggressive, tight and polished musicianship (though there’s also a lot of subtlety here too). I listened to this a lot when I was a teenager, and many years after my wasted youth this album still can't be rated anything less than a 5.
An easy 5. I don't like all of Metallica's work but this album's hard to argue with. Excellent music.
Really not as great as I thought it was. Pretty bland.
Reaction when this one popped up was “not now.” Reaction after listening was “not ever!” Now that we’ve listened to multiple Metallica albums I can say this is not their best and that is a very low bar.
My personal favorite Metallica album is still Ride the Lightning, but objectively this is probably their most cohesive work. Both are classics.
A classic. Enough has been said about the self-titled track, but I just want to call to attention how brilliant of a piece Orion is. One of only a few Metallica instrumentals, and simply stunning.
I have loved this album for decades and have no issues listening to it again. It stands the test of time and for me is probably Metallica's best album (or neck-in-neck with And Justice For All). Also the tracks really follow well if you listen in order. Note too that I saw Metallica play half these songs live and it was probably the most high-quality, fan-oriented live show I've seen.
Great album with no bad songs. Battery, MOP, Sanatarium. Excellent guitar, drums and vocals throughout. Substantive, thoughtful lyrics yelled at you until you get it.
If you'd have asked me even 10 years ago I would have given this an enthusiastic 5 and gushed about it being an enormously influential classic of the genre, which is still is. I'm not in the same place, so I don't enjoy them as much now, but it's still a great album
Arguably Metallica's magnum opus. An amazing, inventive, and powerful set of prog-infused thrash metal tracks, full of tasty riffs and fun solos.
THE perfect metal album. To be fair, I am already a really big Metallica fan that has seen them live and enjoys pretty much everything they have released outside of most songs on Load, Reload, and St. Anger. While I would personally take Ride the Lightning or AJFA over Master of Puppets, I cannot deny that this is the masterpiece that made them legends today. The vocals, guitar, bass, and drums are all as strong as can be within the metal genre, but the songwriting and composition make this album insanely hard to beat. I feel that Cliff Burton played a huge part in making this album what it is, and you can tell that this was easily their most mature and sophisticated album up to that point (most would argue they never reached these heights again, but I feel AJFA has amazing moments that prove them wrong). Every song structure here is crafted so tightly that it makes the whole album feel cohesive but unique with a mix of lightning fast and slow paced songs: for every insane track like Damage Inc., you have a somber track like The Thing That Should Not Be that creates a great pace throughout the listening experience. I feel that there is not a dud on this entire record and that every single track has a unique element that makes it stand out from the rest. If I had to choose particular songs, I would say Disposable Heroes and Master of Puppets are my favorites. The anti-war message of the album is most strong through these tracks, but the entirety of the record features pounding aggression and softer moments that really let the lyrics and emotion stand out. This is one of the only hard rock albums I can think of where the songs would work just as well as orchestral versions, especially the instrumental track Orion. For that reason alone, I would say that this album is amazing, but having that aspect combined with top notch performance from every single member makes this flawless. 5/5.
This album is even better than I remember it. Though that being said metallica may have better albums.
First full Metallica album I've listened to. I can see why 80's teens were into it. Complicated rhythms, edgy lyrics. Moms don't love it.
Master of Puppets is one of my favorite metal songs of all time. There are moments when the album takes a more melodic, quiet approach which I really love. It's great if you're in the right mindset, but can be exhausting listening all the way through. I think Metallica is as heavy as I can take in terms of metal.
Thrash metal hits its peak. Growling ginger walrus gargles hate and anger while gurning midget smashes the drums. Solid album. Best Tracks: Battery; Master of Puppets; Orion
I can't say that I've ever been a fan of the members of Metallica as people, but goddamn their early work is just stellar. Intense and loud while still remaining incredibly melodic and intricate, this may be their best album. I just wish that they could have gone the Slayer route more and just stick to their metal roots rather than following the course of popular rock 'n roll. At their peak, Metallica may have been the greatest metal band of all time, bar none. 4/5 (but very close to 5)
It's technical but not really enjoyable. After a while it all just sounds like the same screech. Not my cup of tea.
This album is awesome!
S tier thrash album!
I feel like I can understand people who don't like metal, but I really enjoy it. Metallica, especially, has a lot of symphonic and classical influences apparent in their music. Just look at a song like "Battery", or pretty much anything on this record. I'm not Metallica's biggest fan, but damn does this record rip. Favorite tracks: "Battery", "The Thing That Should Not Be", "Sanitarium"
RIP Cliff who knows what may have been post And Justice For All. This album still slaps
A classic, definitely enjoyed my listen. The switch in the first song from acoustic to electric is killer, and Master of Puppets is an incredible song. Deserves to be on this list, 7/8,fav song master of puppets.
Solid album... not even my favorite from them, but I can't go lower than 5.
This one is a classic for me. One of my favorites from Metallica
#3 Metallica after Justice and Lightning. Brilliant.
This rating was not pulling my strings
Very good album
Geweldig album van een geweldige band, gister led zeppelin en vandaag deze klassieker
One of my favorite albums. Most Definitely my on ramp into metal.
BEST METAL ALBUM EVER. I'd give it six stars if I could.
Masterpiece. What a ride. Headbangers dreamland.
Awesome thrash sound. Consistently hard and fast.
Gammal Metallica er gammal Metallica
Classic. One of the best by one of the best.
Ce classique !
you KNOW it's a dang five
Great to listen, I recommend playing agressive Red dead redemption 2 gameplay while listening to it.
Heard it a thousand times.
ja tinha ouvido umas tres vezes antes, por isso fiquei com preguiça de ouvir denovo, mesmo assim vou dar 5 estrelas, muito bom
One of my favourite albums
I think I'd go to bat for this as the most essential and best Metallica album, definitely a classic, definitely belongs on the "must listen" list.
absolutely legendary. best thrash album of all time
A metal masterpiece. A must listen for any fan of the genre. Highlighted songs: Master of Puppets, Welcome Home (Sanitarium), Orion
as good as I remember from 10 years ago
Super fast, super powerful, with killer songwriting. Battery is a hell of an opener, and MoP is an all time classic track. Spectacular from beginning to end.
I don't even need to listen to this to give it a 5/5... buuuuuuuut I'm still gonna listen to it anyway :D
I mean, c'mon.
Excellent - every song a banger
Always love older Metallica! And this came up on the 3-year anniversary of my last show of theirs!
Easily one of my all time favourites. Let’s GO!!!
The first time I've heared this album. Great! Should listen more Metallica.
What a ride!
An album that I have dipped in and out of over the years. I'm not a massive fan but I enjoy what I hear
Great classic thrash album, lots of nostalgia for me personally so this is an easy 5 as I grew up on these tunes. Still bangers.
Pionero del metal de una de las bandas más contundentes. Todo un clásico con guitarras y batería poderosas
Sólo por Master of puppets se merece el 5, pero es que además tiene casi todas buenas.
Amazing. Legendary album.
ну норм так то. Метально
Classic metal record
One of their best albums ever
What we are talking about here is in my opinion one of the most famous metal albums of all time, and for good reason. Diverse sounds, with all the stuff that is good about thrash at one point or another. Not even my favorite Metallica album, but their most prominent early one by far.
A gold standard
Battery, damamg inc, Master of puppets - great album
Greatest thrash metal album of all time.
Metallica have been in my musical DNA from a very early age, thanks to my older brother. I fell in love with them hard, myself, when I was about 20. They were my gateway into metal and for the longest time they were my all time favourite band. They have since been surpassed by Coheed and Cambria, but Master of Puppets remains a top tier Metallica album for me, as well as being one of the greatest representations of metal at it's finest. I love all the songs here, with the exception of Leper Messiah. That song leaves a bit to be desired but every other song is a banger. They've all been reviewed a million times but the longer songs Orion, and the title track are the best for my money. Not to say the others are slouches. Battery may be the single greatest metal opener, alongside Angel of Death and Clenching the Fists of Dissent. My first live experience watching Metallica was Download Festival 2006. It was the 20 year anniversary of this album and they played it in it's entirety and I kid you not when I sat I had an out of body experience! I there my whole being, body and soul into that show and was lucky to make it out alive! Perfection, or close enough.
Absolutely phenomenal album, always worth listening all the way through
I love this album
Best Metallica album, rated previous Metallica albums as 4 (AJFA) and 3 (Black) so this should get 5.
Great album, liked the atmosphere throughout the album. Having a poster of it as a teenager says enough and still like it.
I can't even give this an honest review. It was one of the first albums I ever owned (about 30 years ago now), I've listened to it more times than I've had hot dinners, I've learnt the whole thing on guitar, I know every single song inside and out. It's legit the epitome of heavy metal, even of rock music in general. 5/5.
Classic album. Every song is a hit and pure energy building.
Perhaps a little too metaphor driven, but a masterpiece nonetheless. I will suggest that it's a pretty standard formula of "angry verse, crunchy guitar, angry verse, witty chorus, squeely guitar, crunchy guitar angry verse, backed with aggressive bass and drum." I love this album, and it defined a genre, even if the formula exhausted itself. Callouts to Orion, Welcome Home, and Battery.
The five stars I wanted to give ...And Justice for All but couldn't. Might have something to say for listening to albums in order of release in cases where bands have more than entry in the book. This is the Metallica I expected and loved but I think I'm now far better equipped to dive back into Justice with this context behind me. What a massive fucking album though flipping heck.
One of my all-time favorite albums. The last great thrash album by Metallica. What other band plays music in 21/32 time signature at 200+ bpm? It's insane how clean Kirk and James' guitars are here. And most likely Lars' best drum work. This is a masterpiece of thrash metal and likely the very definition of it. I actually like James' later mature voice rather than his earlier voice, but the higher pitched/younger voice still fits well. My only criticism is the mixing could be better as I really wish I could hear Cliff's bass work more, but with decent headphones, you can hear it. But it's drowned out with speakers, which is sad. But not enough to not make it an instant 5 star album. Every song is memorable. RIP Cliff.
First of all, I’m not the biggest fan of metal. It’s not something I listened to growing up but as my palate expands I’m giving it another go. Having said that, I loved this album. It was cohesive, cinematic, and the musicianship was incredible. James Hetfield’s vocal delivery is supercharged and clear, Cliff Burton’s baselines are acrobatic and driving, Lars Ulrich’s drumming is precise and full of momentum, and Kirk Hammett’s lead guitar is melodic and virtuosic without being muddy. This album is cohesive and exciting despite its 54 minute running time.
Metallica is the only metal band universally liked even among non-metal fans for a reason. They maintain a heavy sound without compromising the beautiful melodies or meaningful lyrics.
LOVE LOVE LOVE METALLICA!
A metal masterpiece. RIP Cliff Burton
Hauntingly beautify. Battery / Master of Puppets is a strong 1-2 opener. Lots of energy throughout the album. Orion is a fantastic interlude so that we can finish out strong with Damage Inc. This is a low 5 for me
Quite frankly the best entry point to Metallica and their music. What more can be said about this excellent display of riffage, sheer tenacity, brute force and one of the four pillars of thrash metal being at their early, hungry best? A must listen for anyone who either love and hate Metallica and understand what they mean to not only the genre of metal but music as a whole. Excellent.
another great album by Metallica, this album raise the roots of the modern metal
The album that solidified Thrash as a force in Metal music. Wall to wall bangers. Aggressive, heavy, anti-war. Every time I listen to this I think what Metallica would've been if Cliff Burton hadn't died in a bus accident. || Favorite tracks: Orion and Damage Inc. Bass on Orion in particular goes hard.
Lotta great heavy tunes here. Masterful🤘🤘🤘🤘🤘
Possibly the best metal album of all time
Curious never heard of this ><
Few albums did more to change the path of music, metal specifically, than this one. Amazingly one of the others was Black. Amazing.
No comments necessary.
Síntese do metal em direção ao ápice.
One of the definitive metal albums. I loved this and handed listened to the songs many times, and well again.
Disposable Heroes ***** good idea. Álbum muito bom!
I was starting to think after around ~50 albums rated that the genre of metal was being forgotten about as I think we’ve only gotten a single other one so far (Black Sabbath). Thankful to be proven wrong here with MOP >:O >:O This album has so many definable characteristics. It is DYNAMIC in its instrumentation. The first thing you hear is Battery, with acoustic guitars that start to increase in harmonic complexity, adding harmony on top of harmony... until you get hit at 39 seconds in, and are given an EPIC soundstage on your ears. then at 1 minute in you get the ENERGY OF THE RIFFFFFFFFFFF >:O >:O And then you are set on a crash course where it’s hard to take a breath without hitting the pause button. I genuinely love this album and I think it's a masterpiece in not only the genre but in music as a whole. Metallica gets an interesting response these days from metal people as they are seen as generic compared to the breadth that the genre has expanded into, but their music is classic songwriting genius- track after track after track. Master of Puppets might be their magnum opus and is in the running for the magnum opus of the genre of metal. It is so dynamic, energetic, surprisingly approachable, monumental, and even catchy. After one listen through you will have parts that you remember. You will remember guitar parts that sound like a cat scratch or tires screeching on a road. You will remember vocal parts! That is so incredibly hard to do in metal, as most metal vocal parts are rhythmic and devoid of melodic qualities or obvious pitches. Somehow my biggest takeaway from this album has always been trying to figure out how a metal band from 1986 has the tracks Orion and Master of Puppets on one album. Both have so many emotions and standout variables for me- with distorted guitar chugfest sections, with soaring guitar solos that are still tasteful, fun offset rhythmic groovy parts (Orion at 2:12 specifically), and yet they are somehow introspective, contemplative, and still unrelenting and epic. This album was released March 1986 and only 6 months later the bus accident occurred where bassist Cliff Burton died at the age of 24. The section in Orion that starts at around the 4 minute mark is one that I’ve always shown to naysayers of the metal genre as an unquestionably brilliant testament that the genre can produce genius level music composition. That section starts with an emotional Burton bass line, that evolves into Bach-like lines at around the 5:40 mark (seriously listen to the bass at 6:00 - with headphones it is breathtaking) and then further evolves into more emotional playing – 6:33 the bass re-enters with distortion with Burton’s infamous no-plectrum technique and then syncs up with the lead guitars. Unquestionable. I’m always a little sad when I hear Orion because of this (and there’s the slightest hint of some chopped onions here as I write this on a Monday morning at 9:39am) but it usually doesn’t take long for me to remember how that song and this album are timeless and will be listened to forever. Easy 5/5 for me and possibly a 6/5.
The best Metallica album! Thrash heaven!!
1986. Key Songs: Battery, Master Of Puppets, Damage Inc.
What can I say? MASTER MASTER
Good album, bit too raw for my personal taste
Was surprised, better than I thought, but Metallica is definitely not my bag
Classic metal album, timeless sound. Though gets a bit old at times.
This should be 3.5, but I’m feelimg generous today because this pairs well with a threshold bike workout.
While I’m not the punk I was in high school who listened to this album a thousand times in my friends Camaro I really enjoyed this trip back to hear this again.
Classic album I’ve never fully listened too. New songs I liked- Battery, Welcome home, Disposable hero’s.
Very heavy but I would listen to this while working out. I do like the song Master of Puppets.
The Thing that Should Not Be and Sanitarium are some of the best hard rock/metal tracks ever. Solid album, though slightly less interesting on the back half.
Masters of their Craft. This music makes me want to lift weights, fight, drink, and end up at a tattoo parlor getting inked on my back with a picture of Zeus throwing a lightning bolt into the eyes of a jet black panther.
Stabilt album. Jag kommer ihåg när denna skiva kom. Jag var 12 år och tyckte att det var för hårt och snabbt. Jag var mer en Alphaville och Howard Jones kille då :)
Pretty good! I'm not really a metal fan, but the guitar work is obviously skilled. I think it's mostly the vocals I don't care for, but here it works well.
Rhythmically interesting and some great solos. Tracks were too long. “Orion”
Never heard this album, but certainly can see its influence.
Actually kinda good
I feel like this is where it all started for Metallica’s rise. Such a good album full of thrash.
Bacana demais! Porém passou minha fase já
Fun and satisfying listen. DRUMS!
Not a huge Metallica fan, but that is a good album.
It was a good listen, but I find this album somewhat overrated within the metal community. It's good, especially in terms of musicianship. But I find the songwriting somewhat bland. I do like Welcome Home (Sanitarium) a lot and always have. But on the whole I find the album just good and not at all the masterpiece many metal fans make it out to be.
Typical metal sound. Love Master of Puppets.
Couldnt tell the songs apart, or even artists as I was listening to Iron Maiden after the album finished and didnt notice. But enjoyed it 7/10
Provavelmente o segundo melhor álbum de trhash metal de sempre, melhor apenas o Rust in Peace. Um excelente album, destaco o Battery, o Master of Puppets, Disposable Heroes e o Welcome Home (Sanitarium) Nota: 8/10
Great metal album love it
I absolutely love this album, maybe my favorite album by Metallica!! The title track still slaps to this day.
First time listening: 7/8 albums liked. Solid rock album. I love songs exceeding 4 minutes to be honest, but ironically the 8 minute one was kind of odd to my tastes. Other than that, very tame music for metal, but great nonetheless! One song saved
Loud and fun but the songs really run together and get exhausting.
Good album. Its no wonder they where so big back then. I've grown up on modern metal, but you can really appreciate their music. Will listen to again
Yeah enjoyed this quite a bit.
classic album one of their best
This was my first real metal album - had it on tape - and I think still holds up. Battery is just a great opener and I don't think the rest of the songs every let me down. Sanitarium is also that mix of heavy and ridiculous that I just love.
Very good, each track seemed better than the last. Favorite track is probably Welcome Home.
Powerful riffs and brilliant energy. Can see how this album was so inspiring.
я бы не слушал на постоянке, но в целом круто
It was good, but I liked Black Sabbath more.
Классика от метлы. Очень хороший альбом.
Daft but a lot of fun.
classic thrash for a reason!
Good but I get a bit tired of it. Needs to be shuffled into other music.
Why is it that I liked this album so much? What made it so listenable? This isn’t usually “my” genre. But I enjoyed the rhythm of it, and it made me move the whole time. I liked the use of lyrics as sound. I liked the lyrics as a message. I liked the vocals—hard but not ugly. I liked the guitars and percussion—so much hard energy but always rhythmic and musical. I can’t fully explain the difference with other albums, I just liked this one. I would play it again. Phrases I will steal: “the thing that should not be,” and “bow to leper messiah!” The title track really, really swings I think. And “Welcome Home (Sanitarium)” will be a good drive-to-work anthem.
Deze classic nog nooit in zijn geheel gehoord. Erg tof!
Voor mij echt een album van Metallica wat de band zo groot gemaakt heeft
Not a huge fan of Metallica, but undeniably iconic, unique, and foundational for thrash metal.
It's the best Metallica album I've listened to, enjoyed it. I'm not always a huge Metallica fan, perhaps because they're so highly rated I go into it expecting such great things. But it is nice, accessible metal with some good hooks
This is on constant rotation on the car stereo. Never bettered to my mind.
Nice album, first time listening
4.5/5 is more appropriate, very good and will relisten.
The only Metallica album I really like. Most of the songs are on my workout playlist.
Toll, aber nicht so toll wie das Black Album
hollowed-out mixing, directionless angry vocals, and some questionable guitar technique do not detract from how strangely catchy this album is. just headbang all your troubles away, man
Liked the previous Metallica albums more, because I'm more of a trash metal fan, but certainly a couple of great songs on this album
I never got deep into Metallica, and I'm past the age where thrash would be casual listening, but this is a really good album. Really, really good.
A brutal and athletic barrage of metal from the single most distinctive sounding metal band ever. Not a huge fan but I can appreciate the artistry here.
Klassieker, maar precies wat doorsnee.
Arguably Metallica's best album in my memory, but when I listened to it today, I did not enjoy it as much. The first tracks, and especially the title song, are brilliant, but about halfway in I got a little bored with the sound, especially the wild guitar solos, which nowadays sound quite old-fashioned.
Metallica's best album, 4 to 5 stars, classic thrash metal from the late 80's
It’s 55 minutes and only has 8 songs. This I like. The obvious 8.5 minute title track is the highlight. This is thrash done right.
Awesome early Metallica! 4/5
I'm not typically a thrash metal fan, but I did enjoy this more than I expected. Some of the songs dragged on a bit too long though.
This is probably the sweet spot for Metallica to me. Not as heavy as the earlier thrash stuff but before they started doing lame ballads
I should listen to more metal.
4.95 toujours un classique a ecouter, jadore.
One of those albums that sounds generic now because it was so groundbreaking that it got imitated for 20 years. Metallica are douchebags but this album is still a classic.
What a surprisingly fun album. A couple of monster hits followed by some really solid metal. It even manages to avoid most of the cheesiness of some of the OTHER early metal bands (I'm looking at you Megadeath). Nothing to hate here and a lot to love.
One of the most iconic metal albums. It's fast, aggressive, and here to make an impact. "Battery" opens with soft classical acoustic guitar before bursting into energy that carries all the way through the album.
I got so much work done today. What an album. I'm really into the instrumental. Best track: Orion
Znam na pamięć, ale przyjemnie było wrócić do tego albumu, bo ostatni raz przesłuchałam go w całości prawdopodobnie jeszcze w czasach gimnazjum. Szepty w Damage Inc przesuper. Mocne 4.
I'm in two minds here. On the one hand "Master Of Puppets" must have been a huge thing when it came out and definitely sounded fresh. The song "Master Of Puppets" is widely considered one of the best pieces of music in history (a well deserved title). But on the other hand I can't help myself from comparing it to later trash metal albums, and it pales in comparison. Apart from legendary "Master Of Puppets" and "Orion" I don't think there was much more standing out. Nevertheless, I consider it a classic.
This is again a tragic case of personal bias. I like this album. I really, really like this album. The progression of Master of Puppets into The Thing That Should Not Be into Welcome Home is fantastic, bespoke song placemets. However. I'm simply not a fan of prolonged, repetetive instrumental sequences. They're good, they're impressive, they're just not my thing. Still, anything below 4/5 would be a robbery, in my book.
I’m not super into thrash metal, and some of the songs go on a little long, but there are some super interesting ideas and dynamic shifts that took me by surprise. Prime example was the middle section in “Master of Puppets”, just really compelling and epic guitar moves.
4/5. Best when played loud! Metallica is one of the few metal bands that I like. These guys are awesome - glad I got a chance to see them in concert. This album is "before my time" and I only listened to it after some of their more mainstream albums came out. Master of Puppets, is definitely in the same realm as those others are. Standouts: Master of Puppets. The rest are really good too!
I prefer the more melodic slow parts as opposed to the crunchy fast strum parts but it’s still a classic. Master of Puppets the song is a masterpiece
It's textbook Metallica; massive energy, driving riffs, incredible harmonics, powerful drums, interesting and gritty to it's core. An album of classic tracks with Welcome Home, Battery and Master of Puppets. It's a solid album, maybe not their best album, but it's certainly Metallica being Metallica.
What do you get when the Swedish Chef cooks spaghetti? Pasta of Muppets. Hetfield, the ever-faster poet, pumps out the lyrics but I think it’s not quite on the same tier of some of their other albums.
Lot of good tracks.
Great metal album
Full points to Metallica for carrying on after the death of Cliff Burton, cos we would've lost some great music had they chosen not to continue at that point, but this would've been a tremendous note to bow out on if it had come to that. This is them at an early peak.
Presque envie de sortir les caras du frigo Prefs: Battery, Master of Puppets, Welcome Home (Sanitarium), Disposable Heroes, Orion, Damage, Inc. Moins pref: Leper Messiah
Parte subito in modo molto aggressivo. Bellissima la title song. Mi pare si perda un po', alcune canzoni sono belle, gasano e caricano, ma non quanto avrei voluto. 4
This is my first time listening to Metallica! Their sound encompasses a range of metal subgenres and they switch back and forth between them making this a wild ride! I definitely hear the heavy metal drama of Sabbath. Then they get into more dark and thrashy sounds that I typically associate with metal. And the guitar solos! Some real melt your face shit! There’s even some psychedelic vibes on “Orion.” I dig the anti-war lyrics too. The album cover says a lot and songs like “Disposable Heroes” are really powerful. Highlights: “Battery,” “Master of Puppets,” “Disposable Heroes,” “Orion”
5/13/2022 - ALBUM #107 Today's Album: "Master Of Puppets" by Metallica - This album was on that I have been excited to get to since it's popped up on the generator. I've always wanted to get into Metallica because many of my friends have raved about them, but never giving them a close listen caused me to write it all of as overblown noise and terrible vocals. Going into this album, I played it casually on a set of speakers while doing housework and really just found it mediocre and at many points fatiguing to listen to. However, giving this album a listen with headphones for the 2nd time was one of the most impressive experiences I have had with music to date. To start, the performances on this album are, with no bit of sarcasm whatsoever, perfect. I might not personally always love or be in the mood for some of the melodies here, but there isn't a single time where the song feels held back by the instrumentation and there are so many moments throughout the record where the playing is so next level it's hard for me to visualize how it was even recorded. The production also is killer, with all of the instruments feeling really well placed in the mix and the tightness of the guitar riffs and drumming really shine through in the recording. The whole record flows incredibly well, balancing the heavier songs with more accessible songwriting and I think the overall theming of the record is incredibly well done, comparing god and religion to some sort of puppet mastery in the title track and going on to call Jesus a "Lepper Messiah" in the track of the same name. The title track is easily one of the best of the album, with this really cool dropped beat at the end of every 4th measure and the solo at the end expertly implements their guitarwork into this really awkward time signature. Welcome Home (Sanitarium) is also a fantastic track, with a great building atmosphere and some sonic aesthetics that I would never expect from Metallica, but holy cow do they just rock the shit out of this entire track. The soloing is always a highlight on all of these tracks but the ones in this track are particularly amazing. Orion is truly a perfect track in my opinion. The band really just lets loose and travels through so many different sonic landscapes, many of which involve some of the craziest guitarwork I have ever heard. Damage Inc. is an incredible closer to the album, with not only a great intro, but an insanely fast chugging groove as the track gets going and a really cool vocal delivery when whispering, "Damage Incorporated." The instrumental break at the end has some of the fastest guitar riffs I have heard and barely sound possible. It's a really chaotic and exciting way to end the album and although I don't love the way it ends off rhythmically, it is still a fantastic finisher. Overall, this album blew every expectation I had of it out of the water and has introduced me to the world of heavy metal in one of the best ways imaginable. There are a very small amount of moments where the heavier tone of the album gets a bit much for me, but when I really put myself in the mindset to listen to Metal music, it really gets easier to see how few and far between those moments really are. Give this album a listen if you have ever wanted to get into heavier music and have been waiting for an entry point that's worth it. Highlights: Battery, Master Of Puppets, The Thing That Should Not Be, Welcome Home (Sanitarium), Leper Messiah, Orion, Damage Inc. Score: 8.5/10 Exceeded every expectation for metal music I had
Great guitar sound. Orchestral arrangements. At the time it was intense but now it sounds pretty vanilla.
Master of Puppets has always been a favorite track of mine, but comparatively, the others don't hold up in my opinion.
1. Really like the sinister acoustic sounds in the beginning. Drummer goes ham. Vocals are nice. 2. Good. Second half of the song is nice. 3. I really like the main riff for this one. 4. Non-metal main riff seems really sinister, I like it. 5. I liked it. 6. OK. 7. Liked the part at 4:30. 8. Not a fan. The solo does go ham at 3:50 though.
Tight, chunky, sanitised, aggression. The songs are perhaps a little too meandering, too long, and too self-indulgent, but some great moments.
Some deadly guitar solos. A bit too bleak for me. 2.5 rounded up.
Instrumental was awesome. I was in a funky mood tho so not really my cup of tea. The thing about metal is it’s always so fast and there’s nothing really drawing me in. I get why folks like it though because of the great musicians.
Battery - Not great Master Of Puppets - All time classic The Thing That Should Not Be - Not great Welcome Home - Better, but still not great Disposable Heroes - Same Leper Messiah - Same Orion - Great instrumental, fantastic bass line Damage - Not great
Seemed a little repetitive, but the guitar chords got me hyped. I can see where they influenced a ton of hard rock bands I used to listen to back in the day.
I can appreciate that the music is technical, it just ain’t for me
I know why it is on the list. Still, it hurts my ears to listen to most of the songs on the album
Normally not a fan of speed metal. But this one is a pleasure to listen to.
This album is OK, not my favourite but a decent listen. Love the drums
Some decent moments, and obviously a decent band, but too metal for me. Were I 20 years younger, though, they would likely have been among my favorites.
Master of puppets es buenarda, pero las otras canciones son todas iguales, con el mismo ritmo, muy monótono
Heftige instrumentaler, og vokalist like sint som alltid. Passa veldig bra til en sen kveld med excel-arbeid, men ikke 100% min greie. Føler hele albumet hørtes ganske likt ut også.
Not my cup of tea
Maybe not my normal cup of tea, but a few solid tracks with some great energy. 7.8/10
I guess, but the trash thing gets dull after the first few songs.
More like pastor of muppets
isn’t for me sorry, don’t wanna be bias as it was good music I just wouldn’t choose to listen to this, I did enjoy some of the instrumental drums 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼
not ride the lightning 2.5
I really don’t care for this, there aren’t enough levels to it
It's fine. There are some good riffs here and there but overall it's not for me. It gets quite tiring to listen to this almost hour long album. I get that is what appeals to fans of the genre but not to me.
Metallica is def good but Im unfortunately not a fan of metal
I’ve never enjoyed Hetfield’s vocals, and most of this is too thrashy for my tastes, but Orion is so good!
This is not the kind of Heavy Metal that I like. It was ok, just not for me
Not my taste in music
Hope no one was expecting lyrical depth
I'm not a metal guy but I didn't hate this album Has some punk elements. Very heavy in the tradition of Black Sabbath which is a good thing. I actually liked most of the songs. 3.5 🌟
Not too much of a metal enjoyer but this album had some good ones on there.
Sounds like I should buy it used. Saw this your live in 1986, band was right but it just didn’t have the passion. Now I hear that on the studio recording too.
I admire their speed and their power and their talent. These guys can play. But other than the title track (which is great), there's not much on this album that makes me want to listen again. Similar to how the Ramones made me feel, I can see why other folks like them but they're just not for me right now. I think maybe they're good for adolescent dudes who are mad at their math teacher and I can't not take that personally today.
Another eight-songer (though track lengths make up for the lack of 'em). Older than the Hand of God, for some context...
Bouncy, fun, silly.
Master of Puppets is universally considered a masterpiece, and it's easy to see why. James Hetfield's rhythm guitar playing is technically flawless, executing intricate, rhythmically complex, lightning quick parts adroitly, but always with a human feel. His vocal performance is aggressive, but the farthest thing from sloppy. Cliff Burton matches Hetfield on bass, step by step. Drummer Lars Ulrich isn't as subtle or as tasteful as Hetfield and Burton, but he does fine. Kirk Hammet's leads are impeccable, although I personally would prefer that he take more chances harmonically, given Metallica's obvious ambition. These are complex, tightly written songs with a wide stylistic range--within metal, of course. And the lyrics match, ruminating intelligently on various aspects of the misuse of power. The band is blessed with crystal clear production from Flemming Rasmussen that allows you to luxuriate in every last note, and which neatly sidesteps all the worst aspects of 80s production. There is literally nothing to complain about on Master of Puppets at all. Why then does it leave me cold? I really don't understand. Still, on a purely intellectual basis, it's obvious that Master of Puppets (which I'm told is largely a consolidation of previous album Ride the Lightning's innovations) pushed metal into new levels of complexity and virtuosity. It obviously influenced virtually every metal and thrash album that came after it. It richly deserves its inclusion on the 1001 list. Which leads me to a conundrum. How do I rate Master of Puppets 5/5 when I didn't even really enjoy it? Here's my non-solution: I'm not going to rate it at all.
A fost ok pacat ca in playlist e de vreo 4 ori aceasi melodie
Good album but a bit boring.
Ti gasa abbastanza. Bisogna essere nel mood
Wenn man wütend ist funktioniert das definitiv
A good listen, a lot of melodic work here, and incredible drums. Well produced. Some outstanding tracks, some a little bit forgettable. Top tracks: Battery, Master of Puppets, Disposable Heroes
A whole load of meh from me. I've never had any interest in metal and I appreciate the importance of Metallica but the music just sounds generic, dull, and uninspired. Found this album just boring.
Music is pretty good. Lyrics are cliched.
mislila sam da ce bit bolje iskreno, malo sam razocarana
Disclaimer: This album requires several focused listenings to appreciate. I'd like it more, the more I listen. This album is embarrassed in the company of genuinely great Metallica like the Black Album. Musicianship and lyricism appear at several points, but much of the middle of this album is simply aggression, without substance to back it up. The album sets the tone early, with Battery, an impressive song, but also a good case study in the difference between technically impressive music and good music. Orion would have been a good conclusion for the album. It's a good song on its own, and it also returns to the theme of Battery. Every guitar solo on this album is worth hearing, in context, so you should listen all the way through, if only to appreciate the guitar solos. This album would be much better if Destruction Inc. were dropped from the lineup.
I wish I loved this album. I would like to. I know it's good, it's just not for me. Potentially because I heard all the songs at various alternative venues first while being uncomfortably pissed and/or felt up by guys with sticky hair
I don't think I've ever heard the full-length version of the title track, so I was pleasantly surprised to find ~3 more minutes of head-banging goodness on top of what I already knew. It's that relentless energy that makes this album listenable; maybe I'm using the wrong speakers/'phones, but this thing absolutely drowns in mids that tend to wash out the bass and drums. Burton's lines deserve to be heard, damn it!
Call it the metal equivalent of the "Seinfeld" Is Unfunny trope but this seems overrated. Weird because I loved sabbath. Anyways, solid 3
Always wished I liked Metallica more but I just can't get into the heavy side of this heavy metal. Definitely enjoy their 90s stuff more
Everything was slower than I expected. I thought this was speed metal. I think I would have really enjoyed this album if you could hear the bass on anything other than Orion.
Enjoyed that more than I expected. “Speed Metal” comes alive. 3.5/5
Although I'm not overly familiar with their entire catalog, I do like this band whenever I hear their music. It's more thrashy and frenetic than the music to which I typically listen, but I love the energy and I think James Hetfield's sense of melody is fantastic. I also always admire the bands' musicianship, especially Hetfield's guitar playing (Kirk Hammett is a superbly talented guitarist in his own right; I think the reason my ear bends towards Hetfield is aesthetically I'm not that into shredding). After a while, the constant driving and often staccato style of this album start to blur together for me, and even grates on me a bit, but it's overall quite good.
Great song but a million times on one album? It's good but... Not that good!
Great band. Love the monster movie. Just never connected like so many people do.
Najtrudniejsza ocena dotychczas. Z jednej strony jako zagorzały słuchacz metalu od dawien dawna, nie przepadam za Metallicą i uważam, że mało jaki zespół jest tak overrated. Obudzony w środku nocy wymieniłbym 100 subiektywnie przyjemniejszych zespołów metalowych. Nie jest ona w top 5 zespołów na M, nawet nie wiem czy jest najlepszym zespołem na "Me", bo istnieją Meshuggah i Megadeth i choć nie jestem jakimś die-hard fanem obu, to zdecydowanie wolę odpalić je niż Metallicę. Z drugiej strony, "Master of Puppets" należy jeszcze do tych lepszych albumów, zanim się skomercjalizowali. No i Metallica to pewien entry point do metalu i zespół popularyzujący gatunek od zawsze, więc za to im chwała. Album jako całości słucha się w miarę przyjemnie, jak na Metallicę, pozycja tego krążka jako klasyki thresha jest niepodważalna. Wiele o zawartości nie trzeba mówić, jaki MoP jest każdy widzi. Nie zgodzę się absolutnie z tezami, że to najlepsze co metal spotkało, że są w czymkolwiek najlepsi (technicznie, lirycznie, brzmieniowo, wokalnie), że są wyjątkowi, że w dzisiejszych czasach nie ma takiej muzyki - akurat metal rozwija się zajebiście i od "Master of Puppets" do dnia dzisiejszego pojawiło się mnóstwo zajebistych i unikalnych zespołów, albumów, podgatunków etc. I zapewne pojawiać się będzie. Dlaczego 3/5? Dałbym takie 2.5, a że nie mogę, to daję 3, ponieważ: 1) Zapewne nie będzie w tym zestawieniu dużo metalu, a ten co będzie, będzie popowy lub heavy metalowym klasykiem, powtarzanym w radiach do znudzenia 2) Zapewne będzie więcej albumów Metallici, w tym niestety te nowsze, więc trzeba mieć skalę - nie wszystkie nowe albumy zasługują na 1 3) Bo mimo wszystko biorąc pod uwagę, że zapewne zarzucą nas jeszcze 2 albumami Cohena, kilkoma albumami Beatlesów itp., miło posłuchać jakiegoś metalu :P Ale jeśli to byłby challenge typu 1001 best metal albums, dałbym 2/5. Bo naprawdę mamy 2022.
Na pewno ten album był wielkim poruszeniem w momencie wydania, jednak po tylu latach i dla człowieka, który nigdy specjalnie się trash metalem nie interesował większym zaskoczeniem niż znane Battery i tytułowe Master of puppets był na przykład instrumentalny Orion. Ogólnie jak na Mettalice wydaje się dość stonowany cały album. 3.5/5
Klasycznie - z perspektywy czasu Metallica plasuje się gdzieś pomiędzy hard rockiem, a metalem - im dalej w las, tym lżejsze brzmienie albumów. W przypadku Master of Puppets mamy przydługie, niezbyt ciężkie kawałki, z których losowy, 20 sekundowy wycinek mógłby być wycinkiem dowolnego innego utworu. Mimo, że każdy z nich jako część większej składanki miałby rację bytu, cały album jest przytłaczający i lekko... przynudza? Nawet jeśli w tamtych czasach taka perkusja czy riffy gitarowe były czymś nowym, z perspektywy czasu ogromna liczba zespołów robi to po prostu lepiej. Paradoksalnie najbardziej podobało mi się najwolniejsze Welcome Home (Sanitarium), co moim zdaniem dobrze podsumowuje ten album.
I had this pegged as the metal connoisseur's Metallica album of choice, whereas I'm more of a casual Black Album / 'greatest hits' kinda guy. I enjoyed this more than expected though; I thought it'd be mostly thrashy stuff but there's plenty of variety. Orion is a great case in point. A strong 3.5 from me.
Is this the greatest heavy metal album ever? Maybe, but I'm not a HM guy at all so I'm not the one to judge. I will say that I preerred the Iron Maiden album as well as both Black Sabbath albums (especially 4) to this album. It's true that the musicianship is quite impressive exspecially the drumming but as far as guitar virtuosity, there's very little else that impresses me less. But I understand the quality of this album..just not for me. 3 stars
A lot of heavy topics here. Harmonizing with guitars is something so simple but so impactful. All I was thinking about is how exhausted I'd be performing this live. Favorite songs - Battery, Disposable Heroes
Functional head cleaning music - that feels very appropriate reflecting current world events (April 2022)
"MASTER. MASTER." is what I think every time I see this album title. This era of Metallic is just ok for me. Master of Puppets is fun though. I bet if this album was mixed in not such a mid-heavy way I could get more into it, it just feels a bit flat compared to modern metal mixes.
Here's my track by track analysis: 1) Definitely doesn't start off how I would have expected, but ultimately "Battery" ends up sounding like a bizarre Duracell commercial. 2) The weird time signature on "Master of Puppets" feels awkward and now I'm agitated. Perhaps that was the intended effect. 3) Did he really just say "death may die" on "The thing that should not be"? Sounds like the soundtrack to a mountain dew fueled dungeons and dragons session. 4) "Welcome Home" kinda sounds like proto grunge during the first half of the song (before they get into the thrashing and soloing). I'm sure the guys in Alice in Chains were listening to this. 5) "Disposable Heroes" is perhaps my favorite track. More straightforward but intense and kind of fun in a way that the other tracks aren't. Almost has a punk energy to it. Kinda reminds me of The Misfits. 6) I think "Leper Messiah" is the blandest track on the album. That double kick pedal really massages the eardrums though. 7) Instrumental metal can work really well! You can showcase more interesting musical structures and techniques without the distraction of the often over-the-top lyrics and/or grating vocal styles common to the genre. Not to say Metallica are guilty of those things, but it's a nice sort of intermission. "Orion" is definitely kinda proggy, but that's not a mark against it in my book. 8) I like the intro to "Damage, Inc." Kinda wish this track was swapped with "Battery" and this track would open the album and "Battery" would close it. This song would be such an intense way to open the album and you could drop F bombs on everyone right off the bat.
Yeah it alright. Not my fave tho.
I see the impact and significance of this album but I couldn't really get into it. Did like Master Of Puppets and the instrumental though.
It delivered what I expected. Some nice riffs, funny lyrics and all in all a pleasant experience. Nothing much else to say. It's good
I guess I can see how this is important and super exciting for some people but it does very little for me. No sense of fun or even really anger, it’s all very skilful and complicated but I just had to trudge through it to get to the next one.
6/10. Enjoyable enough as metal goes.
Some belters. Some far too long. Not as hard as I was expecting.
Just not a metal fan. There were a few interesting moments, but not enough to want to listen again.
I mean, epic for powerlifting, gang fights and satanic rituals but not great anywhere with mixed company.
I don't like metal
Can’t upset the Manta-Ray! Classic dum-dum-dum-dum electric guitar, maybe started here? All i know is half of the songs sound like a douchebag’s motorcycle trying to start.
Blackened is a fine spirit, but this is not my style and the songs sound the same.
Meh not my thing
Voces y ruidos. Molesto. Sin ritmo.
Already starting with some strong guitar. Hmm, just some strong guitar, which I can tell takes skill to play, but isn't that appealing, followed by a guy repeating the same words angrily.
apruebo, esta bueno :) igual no le preste mucha atención así q desp lo voy a volver a escuchar con mas detenimiento.
Dette albumet har fått meg til å innse hvor lite Metallica egentlig gjør for meg. Kule riff og instrumentaler, men vokalen blir litt vel heftig og ensidig i lengden. Hetfield har liksom den samme farlige, tøffe stemmen hele tida, og det mangler litt sjel. Klarer ikke helt å se i hvilken sammenheng jeg ville klart å nyte dette albumet. Fortsatt bra instrumentaler da.
INTRO These songs are too long Favorites: Battery
Did not enjoy
It's to much hard rock
For what it is, it is quite enjoyable. Areas seem very dated now, especially the vocals and guitar solos. Wasn't into this when I was younger, and I wouldn't pick it out to listen to again, but I can see the appeal.
Hearing some early Metallica with Cliff Burton was interesting, but I don't see listening to this music by my own choice. The title track verged on being okay. There is enough "meedly-meedly-mee" from Kirk Hammett to keep Strong Bad happy. The "chug-chug-chug" that drives extended sections of most (¿all?) tracks wears out my patience. Metallica is not for me.
Not my type of music and no tunes I recognized... maybe I wasn't in the mood for it
There’s only one Metallica album that’s more than just a collection of songs, and it isn’t this one. Also, I don’t get the shrill sound
I’ve never listened to a Metallica album before. Certainly aware of this album, but looking at the track listing don’t recognize a single song. ”Battery” surprised me from the git-go. I had not expected soft guitar. Nice of them to ease me into the water a bit. Once in I’m finding the water a tad too hot for me. Excellent playing, although The Poseidon Adventure comes to mind: “I can’t take this. Give me a Strauss waltz.” “Master of Puppets”… maybe going down a little easier. Like the previous song, there’s a break in the middle for the unexpectedly calm and pretty guitar solo. Is this a thing in their music? Give you a little palette cleanser before the second half of the song? I’m enjoying this middle section. I see why these guys are legendary musicians. That middle part almost had me liking the song. “The Thing That Should Not Be” is plenty dark. There’s that grinding guitar. How long is this song? “Welcome Home (Sanitarium)” thankfully is taking things down a notch. Still not connecting. Halfway through. Must…press… on… “Disposable Heros” - the music is well-suited to the topic of war. Neither is pleasant. Maybe all war songs should sound like this. And like war, really anxious for this to be over. “Leper Messiah” is my favorite song so far. These songs are long though aren’t they? I wasn’t expecting an instrumental, but here’s “Orion”. It’s better than I expected. The soft interlude is quite nice. This is my favorite song on this album. I’d like to hear a symphonic arrangement of this. “Damage, Inc.” has lyrics that fit the music very well. I made it through a listen from beginning to end… not unhappy for the experience. I appreciate the skill of the performers, but struggled to find any connection to this music. I’m afraid I’m just not dressed for this party.
nothing specil. nice bit of fret wanking but thats about it
Allora l'album già lo conoscevo solo al livello di immagine per la copertina super iconica e molto bella l'ascolto però è stato faticoso, nonostante siano poche tracce sono davvero lunghe e ripetitive ma probabilmente sono io che son di parte perché il rock/metal non è per niente il mio genere, devo ammettere che però entrato nel mood ho iniziato a muovere la testa, direi che siccome è il primo album da recensire devo ancora settare gli standard per la valutazione, gli do 2 stelle perché sono sicuro che questo sito me ne proporrà alcuni molto molto migliori
Metal...what else to say...
Kind of got old after 56 mins of hard rock. To be fair, it’s not my favorite genre so I don’t have a huge interest in it, it’s not the work. Definitely could see the influences to bands I used to listen to like Avenged Sevenfold. 4/10
Not my favorite album, even for Metallica/the genre.
I didn't dislike it
I'm not a metal fan. It is difficult for me to listen to this album, not saying that it is bad, but I like punk rock.
Too heavy for me - even the famous tracks. I can only work with Black Album Metallica, everything else just feels a bit too aggressive
Apesar de gostar da banda foi menos do que esperava
Thought I would like this more but really wasn’t feeling it. Feels like a half step away from those mid-2000s cock rock bands.
Monotonne i brzmiące tak samo 1h albumu. Intensywniejsze gitarowe czy perkusyjne fragmenty nie są moim zdaniem niczym wybitnym, a większość albumu brzmi tak samo i moim zdaniem nudno, przez co we wielu miejscach miałem ochotę na zmianę utworu, po czym kolejny brzmiał tak samo i tak w kółko.
Reminds me of my alcoholic uncle
Bland. Samey. No bangers. Warm up for the good stuff methinks
Aparte de la canción que da nombre al disco y de la intro de la primera no me ha llamado la atención. Cada vez creo más que esta es una banda sobrevalorada, alguna canción buena en cada disco que he oído y poco más, o es que yo no coincido con su estilo.
Oh god, do I have to...?
Got better but still not my thing. Speed metal annoys me. Glad I heard Sabbath and Zeppelin as a kid. Didn't add.
Ja leuk gedaan hoor jongens maar niet m'n ding
2/5 not into this kind of music
Man, was I ready to hate this. I really cannot stand the Metallica you hear on the radio - every song some diversion in E minor with James Hetfield's awful stupid growly roar after every phrase. I really really don't like them, and only had been peripherally aware of their early material ("...And Justice For All" and back) - I recall appreciating a few cuts so I'm ready... And...i still don't *really* like this - thrash is not my bag in any fashion. But there's a lot to appreciate musically here - twin guitar parts (as a big Maiden fan I do like these parts), acoustic-to-electric dynamics, time signature changes. From a musician p.o.v. I can listen for these. Favourite parts: middle section in "Master of Puppets" - sounds like a full Iron Maiden tribute - and "Orion" (no vocals, mostly medium tempo). Least favourite parts: anything double-timed (alas, most of the album) and any part where Hetfield is singing (again...). It's a personal taste thing - mostly the frenetic pace is nothing I can identify with or enjoy; those double-kick drums assaulting my ears don't help either - I absolutely do get why some people like this, I'm just not one of them. 2 stars is my personal rating but it's also unquestionably a creative album and showing off some impressive musical chops; stuck out in the 80s in a time where melodic poppy hard rock was dominating. 6/10 for impact - 2 stars for me
metallica is very heavy metal which i am not super hard core fan of. it was very chaotic all around, some of it was okay but overall it was a lot.
A couple songs were OK but basically if you like Metallica you will like this. Not my jam though.
too metal for my taste 1/5
I couldn't listen to this album. I tried. It just sounds like noise to me. I don't understand the appeal at all. I wish I did so I can share in the enjoyment...but...nope. Not for me
Metalowo jak nazwa wskazuje, ale sa to wyjce drugiej fali, bo lata 80, ciezko cokolwiek o tym napisac. bo jest to niezla napierdalanka po gitarkach i drumach, stad nazwa gatunku trasz metal, od dzikiej furii przelewanej na instrumenty, dodajac do tego wokale, ktore sa zrobione na mode wyjcowa, z ciekawymi efektami echowymi, jakby kult lider nawolywal na msze, okladeczka grobowa z kukielkarzem i niewidzialnymi recami wolnego rynku, nie wiem dlaczego ale zawsze metalikowe fangeje wydawaly mi sie najhbardziej toksycznymi kucami, takimi jacy to oni nie sa, bo sluchaja wlasnie takiej napierdalanki, moze uprzedzenia przemawiaja przeze mnie, ale nie przemawia do mnie takie granie muzyki
Production: 5/20 Songwriting: 4/20 Innovation: 4/20 Bangers: 0/20 Emotional response: 2/20 =14 What a load of fucking shit
i dont really like heavy metal soz
Never liked Metallica, it's just too grim and rowdy
the same kind of aggressive voice as the sex pistols, but this time not really endearing its just annoying. i feel like theres just too much going on and it takes away from anything good. literally so repetitive its actually hurting my ears. i honestly dont think its good at all its really really bad, i cant finish it. no tune or anything remotely pleasant to listen to. shit basically i hate it
Du gros Metallica de bourrin
Geen zin in deze one trick ponies :)
I really don't like metal and this solidified it.
Every bit as awful as expected. My resolve to listen to all of whatever turns up & give everything a fair crack of the whip has certainly been tested to the full by this album.
This album is technically adept in a way that's genuinely quite astonishing. This album is boring AF. The lyrics are rather cringey, with frequent suggestions that the listener should obey their master. Whatever, my guy. If you have to tell me, you've lost. Sorry dude. The relentlessly aggressive guitar becomes tiring really quickly, despite the play being adept it fatigues the listener.
They shout Master, but it must be short for masturbate. Music for a thirteen year old that all of a sudden realises that all the girl in the class have breasts
Not a metal fan
