Well, here is the deal. Master Of Puppets has always been my no. 1 all-time album, but after I had discovered Rust In Peace something changed. Especially now I find myself hopelessly hooked to this album. It's just amazing.

Well, both albums are classics and maybe even flawless masterpieces. One has an ingenious "Master Of Puppets," the other a decent match of "Holy Wars." One has a classic of an instrumental, the other has the number, quality, and beauty of solos that one other album I have ever heard has. Well, there is kind of a tie situation here, but... right now I feel like voting for Rust In Peace; I do think it's better, and so be it. My vote goes to Rust In Peace.

This is a pretty light poll, so no massive discussions are needed as this is a rather subjective matter. If you have something to say though, please do, e.g. favorite moments, solos, lyrics, riffs or maybe drawbacks if you find any... I just want to see who will win in such a battle.

But please, I freaking beg you on my knees, don't post anything like "Megadeth rules" or "Metallica suxx." And don't vote for a particular album just because one of these bands is your favorite.

Folks who heard it the day it came out weren't listening to it filtered through 30 years of baggage.


I heard MoP the first day it came out and already thought it was a weak carbon copy of RtL. Btw I still think so to this day and agw.


Yeah, in this case I don't think it matters, because when MoP came out, RtL was already out (obviously), so MoP was nothing mind blowing, at least for those who were familiar with RtL

First two Metallica albums were amazing, the rest are mediocre if not horrible.


Help me out here. When did you first hear Master of Puppets?


Why does that matter?

I don't know, probably 8 years ago or something like that

Whether you liked it or not, you were still listening w/o 30 yrs of baggage.

I prefer Countdown To Extinction personally. And Ride The Lightning is my favourite Metallica record.

So yeah... given the choices I'll probably go with Rust In Peace. I like both albums but Master Of Puppets has a few more duds in it imo.
