"The Master of Puppets", Metallica's third worldwide famous album is by far their best and most heavy work they have in their collection of twelve albums. The fact that this is the best, is because of the anger and fury and raw sound that has come out of each track has benn un-explainable. Also to mention the guitar of Kirk Hamitt's solo's, probably make this one of their most talented album's. The first track on the album, 'Battery' is one of Metallica's best known song's, and with the heavy-soft mellowsound of the acoustic guitar at the start of the song to the roaring guitar work of Jmaes Hetfield and Kirk Hamitt, who's to argue that this isn't one of their best song's 'Master of Puppets', the second track on the album is without a doubt the best track on the album and personally one of Metallica's greatest song's ever, even though it is not known as hugely as to the likes of 'For Whom The Bell Tolls', 'Enter Sandman', and 'Unforgiven 2'. The reason why it is the best track on the album is because of the blistering guitar work of James and Kirkto the pounding drums of Lars Ulrich. And also the anger in James Hetfield's vocals makes you not want to screw with these guys, but make you cause as much destruction as you can possibly wish! 'The Thing That Should Not Be' is also one of the best track's on the album, just because of the sheer fury and anger that makes you want to stand up in front of everybody and simply just shove them down to the ground, and I think the guitar work would also help you tom do that. 'Welcome Home (Sanitarium)'is probably considered to be one of Metallica's best song's, but unfortunately I would'nt think so, because the song seems to just go on and on without ever stopping. But I can't say it is a terrible song, because the solo by Kirk Hamitt does give it credit of it being a good song. The fifth track on the album, 'Disposable Heroes' may not be the best track on the album, it certainly makes you know why Metallica are one of the greatest rock-metal acts ever, because of the on going riff's and speed of the track, it would make you want to play like these guys definately. 'Leper Messiah', is quite frankly the reason why old grannys and parents probably listen to classical music all of the time, because the vocals on this track would give your gran a heart-attack one second into this song, because it is so brute and, and the fact that the vocalist likes to talk about death I would probably understand. Track seven on the album, 'Orion(instrumental)' shows you the true talents of Kirk Hammit with his guitar solo, which would show the world why he is one of the best guitar players of all time, with the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Adrian Smith, and Jimmy Page. Finally, the final track on the album, 'Damage.Inc' slows you down at the beginning of the track with the slow and mellow guitar work of Jmes Hetfirld. Until Kirk pithes in and the whole sound of this track makes you feel like you are going to war with the anger in James's vocals and the raging guitar work with the blistering sound of former bassist Cliff Burton, and the hammering of Lars Ulrich's drum kit. This song would probably make your head explode after hearing it.
