Explains itself. If you agree that Metallica's third album "Master of Puppets" doesn't deserve all the hype and praise it gets from virtually everywhere, join this group!

I could never comprehend all the hype and praise this album got and still gets from virtually everywhere, be it from metalheads, music fans in general or critics in and outside the metalscene. It's not a bad album (I personally find it okay, 6/10), but even Metallica have released better albums like Kill 'Em All, Ride the Lightning or ...and Justice For All. Is it just because it was the last album with Cliff? Or because it has a nice atmosphere? I don't get it.

Musically the whole album is monotous, bland and dull. It's filled with average and repetitive riffs that bore you to death. Metal should be exciting, but this is just sleep-inducing. Playing-wise there is nothing interesting or especially challenging in any of the songs. They all just plod along without any real twists or turns.

Also, it is not a thrash metal album. It has only 2 or 3 songs that can be considered thrash (Battery, Disposable Heroes, Damage Inc.), so only noobs would label it "the best thrash metal album". Metallica was never really 100% thrash, but Ride the Lightning and Kill 'Em All (especially) contain more thrash than this. However, this album is not considered overrated just because it isn't really thrash, that just comes on top.

Furthermore why are people often calling this album progressive and innovative? Repeating the same riff over and over or adding some random mellow, melodic parts to a song doesn't make it progressive, that's nothing new or special at all. I guess those people don't have a clue of what they are talking about. Metallica never were progressive and never will be, because they don't have the necessary talent.

    Fuck Judas Priest. Gay metal sucks. And you say it all like Megadeth didn't "sell out". The difference between them and Metallica is that Megadeth sold out, but did it not as successfully as Metallica. Because Mustaine has shitty voice and lacks talent in general.

    Except Megadeth is far superior. Also Judas Priest is currently top artist, another far superior band. But I guess Metallica kids will always be butthurt that their favourite band sold out and lost its most talented members.

    Megadeth is the top artist in the group's charts. Not surprising, really. An inferiority complex will always be with Megadeth kids.

    I was once a retarded fanboy of Metallica and obviously loved this garbage. Thankfully I know better now

    Also Metallica receive much more praise then any other thrash metal band (or any other metal band in general for that matter), which is clearly not deserving. That's why there're so fucking overrated, and especially MOP.

    But those bands aren't even NEARLY as praised as Metallica and MOP and they are just 2 of a bunch of influental black metal bands which are all rather equally admired. Plus if you don't like oldschool black metal in general (which seems to be the case), it's not really fair to judge and say it's unlistenable.

    Actually, have to leave this group...I think Mayhem and Burzum have to get that credit since their early material, which is considered innovative, isn't fucking listenable at all.

    It's truly sad that it's claimed to be the best metal album ever made, when there are Rust in peace and Black sabbath. RiP is actually better than all Metallica have done.

    It's actually not good at all, one of the most boring albums of the genre. I guess without Mustaine's effort they're pretty mediocre.
