2. MASTER OF PUPPETS
Many fans consider “Master Of Puppets” one of METALLICA’s greatest albums, The Pulse Of Radio asked frontman James Hetfield if the band would ever like to play another album in its entirety in concert. “It’s pretty important that the fan be involved in that, you know,” he said. “It was more of a fan’s asking for that than us wanting to do it. You know, that was a pretty important album in our career, so pretty historic for a lot of people and that made sense. But as far as, you know — I’d love to play any and every one of them, but you know, it does really come down to the fans really holding that dear to their heart or not.”
“Master Of Puppets” was METALLICA’s first gold album, for sales of more than half a million copies. Many songs from the disc, including “Welcome Home (Sanitarium)”, “Battery”, “Leper Messiah” and the title track are still part of the band’s live set to this day.
