Master of Puppets

       So throughout the late nineties, Metallica became a pariah to many, one for completely changing their sound, two for being vehemently opposed to napster. So after years and years of hearing how good Metallica used to be, I decided to pick up Master of Puppets.

       I am in the minority, but I actually like Metallica (album) era Metallica better than earlier stuff. Maybe it's because thrash bands essentially sound the same when it comes down to it, or maybe because I heard later Metallica first.

       Master of Puppets is a decent album but I just don't hold it in the same esteem as everyone else.
