I think Metallica might have been the best composers in metal.

Play 1 minute of music and then talk for 4 minutes? You're usually better than this.

Anesthesia is a great bass solo by Cliff, and The Call of Cthulu is another awesome instrumental by Metallica.

You may not know that there are key moments in the song where you are thinking you hearing guitar, but is actually the bass. The opening notes fading into the song is the bass, the initial cuts ( 4:36 ) with licks where you first stopped (and flipped out) the song was the bass, and the final climb out of the slow solo was the bass at 18:30 in the video. There has never been a bass artist like Cliff Burton.

That middle section with the bluesy guitar is what the whole song was build around. That bass line was the core of the song that grew into Orion.

guys, as a metalhead, I solute you for stepping out of your comfort zone... The first metal band to mix with rap was Anthrax during the 80's, the made a song with public enemy called "Bring the Noise", please check it out

Other trash don’t compare cough mega deth.

This song is underated for Metallica and it is sad how cliff died after writing this song a farewell before his fade to black to the next level, to the heavens metellica land where the you enter the sandman where master of puppets lives, and where saint anger sits in his throne in the sanitarium.
You know what's absolutely awesome, in ways you might not expect? There's a cover of this song by a duo (Rodrigo y Gabriela) who play a Spanish-style guitar. And it's amazing.

Sounds like the Metallica guys might have listened to some King Crimson, Yes, Gentle Giant, Genesis, Mahavishnu Orchestra, etc... maybe.

For this was one of the best instrumentals they have wrote.. I suggest to go back to ride the lighting album and listen to the call of kutlu .. that has alot more funk and definitely more power to the punch through the song.. get a chance and watch them live with their new bass player rob.. he a dog on that song and reverse it to the actual album.. 🤘

I give Lars a lot of credit for making this song epic. Especially in the transitions and build up. Cliff was amazing but Lars also gives this song tremendous life.

So, be a 15 year old boy in the mid 1990's on the farm, smoking a bowl alone at night, sitting in a beat up bronco in the middle of a field at his favorite party spot blasting this through the speakers. This is LIFE, much love. So glad you got to experience this song. You are lucky, some people don't get the opportunity.

Honestly, this record was their pinnacle. After this Burton died and they were never quite the same. You should really do Disposable Heroes.

common oversight: the get down on many Metallica solos are heavy blues type scales and the breakdowns are reminiscent of classical composition with thick focus on harmonies and ambience. Granted, they are the most widely known/commercially successful thrash band, but those first 3-4 albums show that diversity. Puppets is indeed a peek in this regard as I feel it had the most Cliff (bass player) feel to its style and flow. And this song has that "progressive" edge, spoken of in this review/reaction, especially in the hook riff which doesn't change time signature, but the drum beat accent (snare) switches every measure from the 2 and the 4 to the 1 and the 3 which is very rare and definitely at the time was original. Think about the fact that Ryan mentions blues multiple times and both gents talk about the progressive elements and mention Tool. Why is old-school Metallica more appealing than just being thrash and can catch the common ear like evident in this video? Blues/Composition/Classical elements/ and overall leveling balance (you can hear all instruments at the right volume). and TONE! They were great back in the day for sure. Thanks again guys, glad you get the feel that I felt when I was 10-12 experiencing this shit for the first time after knowing not much else other than the classic rock station type shit. It grabbed me then and never let go. Sure, the late 60s early 70s shit, classic blues, good 80s pop, late 80s early 90s hip hop etc is all great and I'[m big on it, but when a serious thrash/metal band got me, it seemed to be a defining factor for sure. I LOVE YOUR VIDEOS and subbed as soon as I saw you guys do Holy Wars over a year ago. The coolest thing is that you guys know what the good shit is even though it was new to you. Alice in Chains, Tool, Megadeth, Metallica, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath. That's the shit! Much love!!!

As a rebellious teen listening to this music, it may have been the first time I cried to music alone, the swooning guitar in the mid section makes my skin tingle every time I hear it.

My favorite Metallica song. Hands down. Cliff Burton is sorely missed. I played this for my high school orchestra teacher and it blew his mind. He knew of Metallica but had no idea how classical their style really is until he heard this. Michael Kamen did the S&M album with Metallica a few years later and my teacher brought it in to play for the class. It rocked.

"Made me like the initial groove more". That's because it is different, the bass is playing along the guitars instead of his "own thing". Easy thing to miss, so i get it :)

I liked your explanation, "I really don't like instrumentals cuz I get bored." EXACTLY!!! I do too, USUALLY. But with this tune, there are so many switch ups and transitions, you don't have time to get bored. There's nothing boring about this. Great reaction guys. Honest as usual. Love it.

"Why don't you just put out one song instead of an entire album?" I understand your point as an audience hungering for any taste of something new from someone they like, but imagine if authors only put out single chapters or directors released single scenes. It would ruin the work as a whole. Most parts of a complete work can't stand on their own. It's better to wait for a cake than to eat the ingredients because you can't wait.

Bought this album in 1986, the week it was released, Plugged it in & played the entire album from start to finish, ….. My reaction to this song was about like yalls reaction. I heard that Smoooth groove mellow melodic section & was like......hmmm interesting, its "different" but I like it. /// ANYWAY, I like Peace Sells a lot , but Metallicas 1st 3 albums were simply miles ahead of what Metallica were doing,even Ellefson said that in an interview,thats Megadeths bass player. They just had that sound, that formula, that aggression, that creativity and at the right time in history. They managed to Bring this style of music into a more accepting forefront in music, How? Make it hard & aggressive & very metal, yet make the vocals understandable and have something to say other than death satan voodoo dragon stuff.
97warlock ismyname
mY ANSWER IS ……. Compare ANY Megadeth song to just This song even & tell me whos better. Or Take Fade to Black even, That other band,Megadeth didn't have the complexity Metallica had in the 80s. They may have gotten more complex in the 90s but Im talking 80s. Metallica were the best imo
97warlock ismyname
Metallica was T H E Best band in the 80s imo, Hands down.

I love watching your reactions. i have been listening to some of these songs for 30+ years,but your reactions make it all new and fresh for me again. I'd really like to see you react to more songs off of this album. Leper Messiah for one, would be amazing.

You fellas should also listen to live Metallica. Especially during the late '80s & early 90's. And yes, arguably the best show in 1989 Seattle, Live Sh*t! Songs like "Battery" and "Whiplash"...good God! Such a monstrous performance. Heavier, more faster and brutal.
