(Classic Rock) Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich has offered a comparison between iconic 1985 album Master Of Puppets and their next release. And he's admitted his biggest regret with their third title is the amount of reverb used in the mix.

Speaking the US Library Of Congress on the occasion of Master Of Puppets being added to its permanent registry, Ulrich says: "Obviously the album has resonated with not only the Library, but with fans and critics. I'm not sure I can sit down and listen to it, though, and not yell, 'Will someone turn the reverb down!'"

He adds: "I guess there's a cohesiveness in the songwriting and the production. It works really well as a cohesive landscape, a musical territory. I'm happy it all lined up."

He recalls being "infatuated with the overdubbing opportunities and with all we could do in the studio" as they worked. Ideologies change - they go through arcs," he reflects. "At that time there was an evolution happening and people took it seriously.

"The record we're now working on is more about capturing a mood, making it sound raw and not overproduced. But it was a different vibe then and we were comfortable with it - we were excited about multi-tracks and all the gadgets." Read more here.
