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.

I don't see why Rust in peace is so popular, it only has some great guitar playing, but no interesting song melodies.

Indeed, Rust In Peace is better, not only because of Holy Wars, but many other legendary hits like "Hangar 18", "Poison Was The Cure", "Five Magics", etc. This album brought me into the thrash metal genre.

This is not a fair contest in my opinon. Cause 1986 was the year of the big 4 greatest albums I would compare Peace Sells... with MOP...and I would say Peace Sells is better.

megadave was in metallica. megadave got kicked out of metallica. metallica sold out ... megadeth sold out. metallica was better at selling out than megadeth was. megadeth went back to producing boring versions of the edgy thrash they used to. metallica kept selling millions of units.

ergo metallica is hated in retrospect and people find reasons to say nice things about fucking Risk simply because it's not metallica.


rust in peace is good enough, but lacks the balls of dave's earlier work...

;it was Master without a second thought for me. that album was muy importante then and still sounds great now, even after music has continued in harsher directions that have left both Megadeth and Metallica's tunes stuff you now hear on classic rock stations.

Musically, I think that Rust In Peace wins because of the gigantic amount of skill, musicianship and technicality put into it.

Master of Puppets wins for me, Because it has something way more important than all of those things, Better songwriting.

I actually think Dave's vocals are nowhere near as good as James' vocals and personally speaking I have never enjoyed a full Megadeth album, Yeah sure Megadeth are good musicians n all but they are incredibly boring to my ears.

It's true that James puts more emotion, but I find Dave's vocals, especially on Tornado Of Souls, superior.

Saw this and played the albums back to back with Master Of Puppets starting, both in order and in preference.

Did the numbers by the what I hated by each band:

Metallica
-Overlong songs (i don't listen to metal to fall asleep)
-A couple fillers
-Annoying drums
-only 3 songs I would keep on my zune

MegaDeth
-that thing at 2:15 of holy wars, totally kills the song for me
-hate the vocals more than i hate hetfield's vocals
-a couple songs i could do without
-the bass seems more prominent the further you go in the album

gotta go with Rust In Peace on this one

Rust In Peace with no doubt, since Master Of Puppets isn't that good for me. Actually there is one song I completely hate on MoP: The Thing That Should Not Be..or maybe The Song That Shouldn't Exist.

Both Ride The Lightning and And Justice For All are masterpieces of the heavy/thrash, and right after there is Rust In Peace.

RIP easily.
Master of Puppets is good, but it didn't blow me away the first time like Rust in Peace did.
I think Ride the Lightning or AJFA would be a better match against RIP.

MOP song ratings (imo):
Great: Battery, Master of Puppets, Sanitarium, Damage Inc [4]
Good: Orion, Leper Messiah, Disposable Heroes [3]
Boring: The Thing That Should Not Be [1]

RIP song ratings (imo):
Great: Holy Wars, Hangar 18, Five Magics, Lucretia, Dawn Patrol, Tornado of Souls [6]
Good: Take No Prisoners, Rust in Peace Polaris, Poison Was The Cure [3]

I vote for Master of Puppets. Great production, aggressive vocals, tight songwriting, and epic songs like the title track and Orion that take advantage of atmosphere throughout their duration.

Master Of Puppets, definetly. Mustaine's voice in Rust In Peace gets annoying sometimes.

why ''Hell, I'd even say better vocals'' Don't be shy, They're clearly better, its not the voice itself that matters for me and for most, really
its the emotion and the performance given. The voice itself usually comes second especially in Thrash Metal.

Master of Puppets.

Both are great, but if it wasn't for MoP I wouldn't be into metal nowadays.
