Why won't they just release the 18 rare tracks on 1 CD by itself? I've already got all the rest of LoG's material, I really don't want to have to buy it twice to get the rare tracks.

It's always been my experience that "rare or previously unreleased" tracks seldom stand on their own. I pesonally would rather have the set and hear them in the intended context than have it all lumped together.

Blind: Understandable, but it's also just a marketing gimmick. Die hard fans will buy the 3 CD set just for the 1 CD of unreleased and rare stuff. Why not make a few extra bucks and make them buy the stuff they've already got again while they're at it?

Blind: Nah, I took a few marketing classes in college, lol. I AM a restaurant manager, you know. ;P But I think Roadrunner kind of perfected that gimmick.

Lol. At least you can get the "super-duper-fantastic-deluxe-new and improved-awesomeness set" with this deal and not have to wait two weeks after you bougt the origional set. I guess that would be the silver lining here.

#1 I agree totally, a new cd would've been better. Already have all their music except the rare releases...which will be on torrent in a week f*** paying for 3 cd's just to get un released tracks. LOVE lamb of god and would pay any amount to see them play live but I'm not buying into this BS.

Blind: Yeah, I hate when they do that; re-release the CD a month after it comes out with like 1 or 2 bonus tracks.. that's always bothered me.

A new album with bonus and unreleased tracks even or b-sides.
Kind of like what MachineHead did with the special edition of The Blackening.

I'm hoping Gojira and Lamb of God mke there way here on the Metallica Australian Tour.
