    The clip of it is on Metallica.com and guess what? Its their first studio recording since St. Anger. I dunno about you guys but I definately dug the 1 minute clip, especially the way it sounded.

    sounds good there's so many artists that I have respect for on that album. I'm not sure that I'd go out and buy it myself, but it does sound cool. sounds like something for my mum and dads collection that would be finding it's self in my room lol

    DONT! Lars will eat your soul! I think its funny they're on the album as well, it just shows kings of metal can appreciate the gentler things in life

    i think this is the first and only time Celine Dion and MetallicA will be on the same album together correct me if i'm wrong but doesn't that come off as a little funny? _VERONICA_

    haha a bit narrow-minded there mate, springsteen and waters a classic songwriters. andrea bocelli, quincy jones and celine dion are exceptionally good singers might be interesting, then again it might not

    Andrea Bocelli was my favourite artist in the world when I was 6. Man he and Metallica should tour, they would be absolutely unstoppable...

    Ecstasy of Gold is the song the orchestra song, or whatever you wanna call it, that they play before they hit stage, right? ...how exactly are they like, covering it?

    On The Contrary, It sounds astounding. Go to Metallica.com and see for yourself
    no mercy
    wow. Metallica sounds really good on the cover; James' voice too (you can hear it in the background; its kinda of his usual gruff-sing type voice). Sure, Kirk breaks out the wah-wah, but I think it adds to the song. Not exactly new music though...
    Adamantium
    holy sh*t... james lost his voice years ago, yet on this cover he sounds badass again... ...coooool... ...too bad it was probably just enhanced when it was edited...wish he could still sing like that live...
    king_O_dudes
    id only listen to waters, springsteen, and quincy jones...i really dont give two shits what metallica does anymore

    I'm sure Metallica will put their version of ecstacy of gold onto their own album also. And if not, we'll hear it live!

    im sure therr all good songs, but ive played ecstasy of gold on guitar n it sounds great so metallica must kick that songs ass.

    yeah what the hell, it's supposed to be a tribute, is as thought he is partly doing a tribute to himself . Should have had other musicians doing those 3 songs.

    I own the soundtrack to The Good, The Bad And The Ugly. It's ****ing amazing, but this tribute definitely won't be as good; tributes never are. Who wants to hear pop musicians butchering Ennio's classics? Metallica's cover shouldn't be too bad though.

    there is a preview of ecstacy of gold on the metallica website....just in case anyone wants to know

    love ennio morricone. it's a real shame there are so many terrible performers on this tribute. i haven't heard metallica's version of "ecstasy of gold", but it sounds interesting. i'd rather get the ennio morricone box set.

    Ennio Morricone is a fantastic composer. the album "Yo Yo Ma plays Ennio Morricone" is a great listen for any instrumentalist, but is particularly important, in my opinion, for guitarists looking to inject something new into their lead playing.
