      I can still remember the day I stopped after school and bought the album a week or so after it came out, hard to believe it has been 35 years...what a great album.

          I remember the day I heard Battery and Master for the first time. Passing on the street near a shopping Mall and the Record Store had a view to the Street and saw the Cover. I entered and asked to listen to it. I already knew Metallica from a tape but this was another level.

            I remember thinking life got no better than the moment we dropped the needle on this thing the day it came out...

              I heard "Orion" in a record store in 1987 and thought "I need to get that record." I may be the only person in the world for whom that was the gateway song into thrash.

                  I'm younger than you guys so I remember seeing a top 500 list of guitar riffs or whatever and MoP was at the top in...2006 or so? Pretty much went "holy shit" and got way into thrash after that. Was listening to a lot of power metal before that.

                    I was a whopping 6 months old when this came out so clearly don't remember it.

                    I was probably 5 or 6 when I first heard it. Hated the title track right up until I was 14 and started doing drum lessons and my teacher showed me it as an 'easy' metal song to play on drums.

                      Two of my coworkers and I skipped classes that day and we had beers and Metallica before work. How glorious Tuesdays were...

                      Thankfully not a busy evening at the pizza joint.

                        True story: my wife is under direct orders to play that as my funeral march.

                        It was the first song I ever wrote lyrics to, and I’ve loved it ever since.

                            When I was 13 I got a new stepdad, and he had an amazing CD collection. He would let me borrow his discs to make mixtapes. I definitely remember the first time I heard this album, because I immediately copied the whole thing from CD to tape that night

                              I think I was 12 and first heard this in 1991 when my then-to-be best bud moved to town, and we raided his sister's CD collection.

                                    If there was an album that will remain consistent on my top list of everything music, Master Of Puppets is it. Greatest thrash metal album of all time indeed.

                                      I was late to the Metallica game (I got into them via Reload and worked backwards), but I remember seeing them headline Download in 2006 and play MOP in it's entirety to celebrate the 20th anniversary. That was a killer show

                                        I feel so bad for all the Metallica fans that never got to see Cliff Burton live. And, I feel bad for the entire genre for what we lost in songwriting when Cliff died...

                                            Oh man i was in college, had a Tokai Goldstar and a couple of ESP 400 strats. Bought the cassette of this at the mall where all the preppy girls gave me the stinkeye. Must have listened to it a hundred times end to end that first week.

                                                I'm not the hugest Metallica fan, but there's no denying how insanely important this album was to thrash. There's no way to listen to this without having a massive amount of respect for pretty much everyone involved in the making of this record.

                                                  Truthfully I've always been the outlier who thinks RtL is a far superior album. Miles ahead. I honestly will never get considering this album their masterpiece over RtL. I've tried to wrap my head around it forever and just don't see it. My ranking is honestly.

                                                  1) RtL
                                                  2) AJFA
                                                  3) MoP

                                                  And it's not some sort of "THE EARLIER ONES ARE TRVER AND AUTOMATICALLY BETTER" type thing. I'm also pretty adamant that South of Heaven is a better album than Reign in Blood. Also very vocal about how fucked up it is that some people think Powerslave is Iron Maiden's best album. Putting it ahead of PoM or Seventh Son is insane.

                                                  That said, "Welcome Home (Sanitarium)" is one of the top 5 songs Metallica have ever done.

                                                  *I also think Peace Sells is a better album than Rust in Peace
