Black Album + Black Album = Blackest Black Album (and lawsuits galore) 

Loyal readers may remember Standard Deviance's praise for the Grey Album, DJ Dangermouse's mixing of Jay-Z's Black Album and The Beatles' White Album. Grey Tuesday caused quite a ruckus, receiving major news coverage and several cease and desist letters from EMI. Well, if you thought that was something, wait until you see the legal gymnastics once Napster-hating money-loving copyright-owning Metallica finds out that DJ Spooky has mixed Jay-Z's Black Album with Metallica's Black Album.

SD downloaded a preview of it, and while it sounds kinda cool, it's not as complexly mixed as the Grey Album. With the Grey Album, except for the intro or the exit, it is often difficult to tell which White Album song the new track is sampling. With this new mix it is fairly easy to tell which Metallica song he's sampling from, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. And Standard Deviance loves anything that will make Lars' head explode. Let the litigation begin!
