I saw this email in my mail this morning, laughed and said to myself that it was still overpriced as I went to delete it, but like Suprmallet had to stop and gape at the cover. Is that the actual cover, or just an image for this special Amazon deal? Because, yeah, that is ridiculously awful.

This is apparently the cover for the Deluxe Edition (standard edition is as mentioned):



I'm not sure which is worse.

Really? You're not sure which is worse? The one with just her face or the one where she's half motorcycle??

As it was downloading, I went to Best Buy tonight and picked up the Deluxe edition for $12.99.

The MP3's ended up taking 2 1/2 hours to download 14 songs. And to top it off, as I mentioned I double clicked and it downloaded the songs twice. I checked and wasn't charged an extra 99 cents.

What day and age are you living in? Just because you buy something on a CD doesn't mean you can only listen to the music on that CD when you have access to a CD player. I buy CDs, rip them to my computer and then listen to them on my iPod or on my Droid Incredible via Audiogalaxy (free) or Subsonic (one time $10 donation), neither of which have storage limits or monthly charges. And every CD I purchase I have forever without having to worry about something happening to Amazon's Cloud Service or my computer.

It's just a close up of her face from the regular cover. Again, lack of motorcycle hybrid makes the deluxe edition the winner.

I actually like the close-up on this cover since she had a close-up on The Fame as well; I like the juxtaposition of the "clean" image from The Fame and this "dirty" image from Born This Way. Given the albums' respective subject matters, it sort of makes sense, although I'm not sure that was the intended effect.

But yeah, the human/motorcycle hybrid is just ridiculous.

This is a step down from The Fame or The Fame Monster. There are some really good songs here, like Bad Kids and the title track, but this feels like a sophomore slump. Also that cover makes it hard for me to take the song "Born This Way" seriously. With a cover like that I think "Heavy Metal Lover" would have been a better album title, because at least then we'd know she's being tongue in cheek.

And "You And I" sounds like country pop. I can't tell if that's meant to be serious or not.

we can possibly blame producer Mutt Lang for the odd production for that one. I def prefer the HBO/live version

I like You and I. It might not be as good as Speechless but it's good. So far, the album seems pretty good but not as dancy as The Fame.

Who the fuck thought this was a good idea? Looks like those things from Return To Oz but retarded. This looks like schlock you'd find at a garage sale and you buy just to show your friends how silly it is. This is the best you could do, Lady Gaga? Seriously?
you just saw this cover? I saw this monstrosity in the worst album covers thread weeks and weeks back. Even the font is tacky as hell. Someone had some photoshop fun, nice lens flare.

I'm pretty sure Gaga did it herself, which is why it looks amateurish. I believe she was going for tongue and cheek, like a goofy 80's metal album cover. At least that's how it sounded when she revealed it at the Orlando Monster Ball I went to back in April. She talked about how it was fun designing an over the top cover.

But yeah, I would've preferred something a little more...classy. I still think they should've used the promo art for Edge of Glory as the album cover.

I thought I was the only one having problems. What a PIA!!! I ended up clicking on the link twice, thinking I did something wrong, then realized that I probably was charged twice. Wtf happened with Amazon?

Rypro mentioned this to me, but I was wondering if anyone else has heard or can confirm this, that the recent HBO show will more than likely NOT be released on home video (DVD/bluray)

Emailed them about not being downloading problems yesterday, got email saying they were crediting me the 0.99 and I could try to download again. Got home from work and original purchase was still able to download, so got it for nothing.

Parodies only work when it makes sense. A parody of a bad metal cover would make sense for Spinal Tap, or some wise-cracking punk band, but not an album full of apparently serious dance-pop. Seems to me its just another example of her overblown self-importance.

I love how everyone here is complaining at not being able to listen to the new Lady GAGA IMMEDIATELY GODDAMNIT I PAID A DOLLAR.

This is not an excuse for Amazon's poor launch of their Cloud Service. But honestly, no one here could wait a day?

I waited a day, and now I can listen to the UK deluxe edition (with 23 tracks altogether??) free. I just don't know if I want to yet...
