I used to be a big Metallica fan back in the day. I collected rare picture discs and bootlegs but it got a little too expensive after a while. Old limited ed. picture discs are not that cheap. :p
Anyhoo, this album is definitely my favorite Metallica album. The album was released in 1986 (22 years ago!!) and still holds its ground! Two years ago Kerrang had a cover album called “Master of Puppets: Remastered” that included bands such as Machine Head and Funeral For A Friend who covered all the songs on the album.
Master of Puppets is also included in the book “1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die” (along with three other Metallica albums).
My three favorite songs on Master of Puppets:
- Master of Puppets
- Welcome Home (Sanitarium)
