    I personally love the "Burn It Down" single cover artwork. It's some of the most interesting art Linkin Park have had for any cover IMO. Can't wait to see how the artwork surrounding the new album will look.

    Right, but everyone keeps acting like he just said it's going to be "mind blowing". If you read everything else around it, it makes more sense.

    "...there is a tech aspect to the actual art of the album that is very cutting edge and to me it’s mind blowing. This is stuff that without giving it away at this point, I know I have not ever seen this done anywhere and maybe it’s too subtle for most people to get. The average person is not going to be able to look at it and go, I understand that that’s completely new, like not just the image but the way they made the image is totally new. "

    So the bottom row was awful on the 8th piece, that white part could have been anywhere I tried 2 places before finally getting it in the correct spot! sigh got it in the end, didn't take that long either, I'm getting good at this :p

    Glad it wasn't the all-striped piece I'm so tired I don't think I could handle the all-stripe piece xD well until later today, 9th piece! Goodnight.

    Fuck at least linkin park has album artwork. Most bands dont even have artwork, all they have are pictures of the band, which is boring as hell.

    Exactly.

    You have to to remember that Mike said that the creation process was something new. Sure, the results could probably be re-created using other methods and software, but they probably did it from a more organic source to begin with. Truth is, we don't know as this is the only art we've seen from this cycle and it's only a tiny percentage of the body of work there will be for the new album. Although this may not be visually interesting to some, I'm sure there's more to come and just because it's not a complicated image aestheticly doesn't mean the way it was created wasn't complicated. There's also the fact that what is considered "mind blowing" for Mike may not be for others, but that just comes down to personal taste.

    this is going back a bit, but it almost looks as if the white "hole" in the center of the chest is sort of an explosiany type thing, from that point all the lines begin, and then fan out to sort of form their own sort of pattern, the bits of flame etc, are just coming of it sort of in rings, it reminds me of what an explosion would look like from a birds eye view, minus all the smoke etc, which, is actually kind of similar in a weird sort of way to the ATS cover and the Catalyst cover, almost as if they put two and two together, and formed a completely new concept. or maybe they just thought it would look cool as a single cover and we are just trying to read into it too much, and trying to find something that simply isn't there.
