Oh dear god all mighty, why? And unfortunately this is just the first of several Metallica albums on the list, we are going to have some prize shit music in this year of 1986 as well, considered for good reason one of the worst years in music.
Master Of Puppets is a masturbatory feast of overly long tracks filled with overbearing solos that show little more than technical prowess, and just end up sounding extremely dull. It lacks any sense of humour,it is self-important and listening to it you are sure these guys take themselves seriously, and that is the saddest thing, because they are shit.
The reason why I dislike this is not because it is heavy, I don't think it's that heavy, but it is excruciatingly boring. The songs eventually stick in your head but not due to any particular merit of them, but just because they are so repetitive. Was there ever a more undeservingly famous band as Metallica? It sounds ridiculous, Spinal Tap is at least funny.

The album proved to be a modest commercial success upon its release, reaching number twenty-nine on the U.S. Billboard 200. However, with the bands increasing popularity from the release of ...And Justice for All, awareness of the album has increased, and has to date sold over four million copies in U.S. alone. It was the last album the band recorded with bass player Cliff Burton, who was killed six months after it was released.
