They kind of downgraded their music with this album. While Ride the Lightning had very interesting guitar riffs with respect to rhythm, on this album they seem to go back to the droning guitar riffs that we know from Kill Em All. Except for the song “Master of Puppets”, which is also the best song on the album, and surprisingly catchy for thrash metal.

Pinnacle of thrash metal, in my opinion. Really hard to top this.

Their best album? Really? Definitely not bad, and I realize I need to listen to more of their albums, but out of the ones I've heard so far, I still prefer "Ride the Lightning" or "Hardwired... to Self-Destruct".

From alvinrowab 03/11/2018 20:55
Continuando el legado de 'Ride the lightning' y bajo la mano del productor danés Flemming Rasmussen y ya sin composiciones de Dave Mustaine en su interior, Metallica presentaba al mundo su tercer trabajo. Musicalmente se lo debe todo a 'Ride the lightning', pues supone una continuación del mismo. 'Master of puppets' es leyenda viva del Metal, y además de su ya de por sí innegable calidad, destaca por ser el último disco en el que el bajista Cliff Burton participa antes del fatal accidente que le costaría la vida meses más tarde. Puede que 'Ride the lightning' sea mejor disco en cuanto a calidad se refiere, pero lo que es indudable es que este 'Master of puppets' es el disco que hizo a Metallica grande de verdad, alcanzando la fama mundial con un Thrash Metal agresivo pero elaborado, con muchas secciones melódicas y con una pasión nunca antes vista.

Not my personal favourite from them, but one of the most important records in metal. And it's brilliant in terms of songwriting, musicianship, well almost everything

I've enjoyed the odd metallica song in my time, and I was expecting to enjoy this. However, I was disappointed, as other people have said, it is just thrash, and I guess i'm not the biggest fan of thrash. I'm sure to the right person, this album is a 100 out of 100, but not me.
