Ignore the hype...,
This review is from: Master Of Puppets (Audio CD)
This IS (megadeath fan boys aside) the single best collection of music i have ever heard. The intro track Battery, a tribute to an old place the band used to visit on Battery Street. The song teases you into a world of harmony and joy, which is shattered by a thumping drum beat and then a great display of technical guitar by both Hammett and Hetfield.
The next track and the title track to the album Master of puppets is arguably the best metal song ever written, with a solo fast and technical enough to challenge any. The interlude to this song being on the greatest classical solo in rock history.
The next track carrys on the strength of the album being fast technical and more vintage Tallica.
Then comes welcome home (sanitarium), this song slows the pace down and brings the listener into thoughts of thier own personal hell, soundtracked perfectly by harmonious guitar solos.
The next 3 songs finish the album perfectly covering subjects like War,Religion and violence.
Another highlight of this album (as if you needed ne more) is the track Orion, and underestimated song that has now become a tribute to the bassist Cliff Burton whos untimely death hit the band hard, they played this song at his funeral and to this day its beauty endures.
