Xfm, the station that brings you music that rocks, is proud to present 25 – an exciting documentary series featuring 12 seminal albums, all celebrating 25 years of influencing music.

Ian Camfield will kick-off the year-long series with Metallica’s ground-breaking “Master of Puppets”. Join Ian on Sunday 30th January at 10pm, as Xfm looks back at one of the most influential hard rock albums of all time with a one hour show focused on the album’s release and its impact on the music industry. From 11pm, the station will play out the album in full, creating a forum for its listeners to join the discussion online at xfm.co.uk and facebook.com/xfmradio.

Other albums in the series – all released in 1986 – include Depeche Mode’s “Black Celebration”, “The Queen is Dead” by The Smiths, “Parade” by Prince & The Revolution, and “Ill Communication” by Beastie Boys.

British post-punk band PiL’s “Album” will follow “Master of Puppets” as the second in the series at the end of February.
