Lady Gaga: Groundbreaking Or A Recycling Bin

Newsflash: Lady Gaga's new album cover for "Born This Way" is a cheap knockoff of the classic hard metal albums of 70's and 80's.

I'm loving the new single, "Judas" (I'm really not a fan of "Born This Way"), but this album cover is an another let down that began with the "Telephone" video.
As each new single, album cover, or video rolls out, the similarites of other people's work is too real to be ignore. Of course, every artist is inspired by someone before them, but to actually use their signature concepts is appalling. I'm beginning to wonder if Lady Gaga really was all that groundbreaking or just a recycling bin.
