After listening to the first track you WILL be Batteried!, 26 Jan. 2002
Limp-Bizkit? Korn? Maybe you thinkLinkin Park are the heaviest thing around. No, no, no and no! From the first second of this album you know that this is going to be a ride you will never forget. Like a good roller-coaster it is going to be one you will go back for again and again. Battery opens with a lovely classic spanish guitar part, just as Fight Fire With Fire did on Ride The Lightning. This one beat's it. Just as you reach the one minute mark it seem's like James, Lar's, Cliff and Kirk have just taken a run up and kicked you right between the legs and shouted "Wake up!" This isn't just a fast furious song with nowhere to go but one that in Hetfields word's "is just for fun for the fan's and us". The riff's are so amazingly catchy but still remaining heavy and you have a killer chorus. This was the song i heard that made me buy Master Of Puppets. The second track being the title track has no time wasting begining. It just jump's at you like a lion in for the kill! The riff's sound so easy yet are difficult at the speed they are played. The verse riff chugg's away like a demented demon trying to break down the door. And the guitar solo? Well there's a mid section in this song that doesn't seem to fit in a good way. Just as you think how much longer is this soft section going to go on for they hit you with a great starter upper! As the album goes on you become more and more engrossed. From track to track you discover something new on each song. And not just on the first time you listen but every time. I would have to admit that i could not possibly choose a favourite track. Each track out does the other but yet they are all equal. A track I think you will find yourself going back to is Welcome Home (Sanitarium). This is such an intelligent song with a mean time change. Orion is an instrumental which alot of people thikn is boring. How wrong they are. All you need do is listen to the very begining and you will find it interesting, you may not wish to listen to it as it is an instrumental but curiosity will get the better of you. Once you have sat through the 8 minutes and 12 second's of Orion you will hit the repeat button. DON'T! Go straight to Dmage Inc the next and last track. This song is everything that makes metal good. Fast with a slower section, great lyric's, good drumming, a brilliant bass line and a mean ass attitude. You will be mesmorised. Once you have listened to Damage Inc you will be in turmoil deciding which track to listen to again. You will just decide (like i did) to listen to the whole album again. I know this review may not seem great but trust me buy the album. You will not regret it!
