    i like the ATS art for the lack of writing on it, just the eerie picture on the cover .

    i love the Meteora book though, the art style suited the sound i think

    I strongly suggest taking an art appreciation course in college. It seems like you're terribly misinformed.

    It really depends on how you define art. Modern art, made up of blocks and lines is, imo, a disgrace to art. But I really like the modern psychedelic art, that is some trippy stuff.

    As defined by dictionay.com:

    Art

    - noun

    1. the production of something beautiful or extraordinary
    2. paintings, drawings, sculptures, etc.
    3. skill; ability
    4. subjects other than the sciences

    The beautiful thing about art is that it is subjective to the audience. Not everyone sees/hears the same thing. To you, it may seem meaningless, but to others, it may be something extraordinary. It actually might mean something to us. To sit back and disrespect an entire form of art is kind of tasteless. While I respect that everyone is entitled to their own opinion, I feel you don't quite have a concept about what you are talking about. Interpreting art is the best thing about it. It is called using some imagination. That's why I like and respect all forms of art. it enables you to think about something and fill in the meaning that the artist skillfully laid out for you. Not everything in this world is cut and dry in black and white. thank god for that, because that seems like a shitty place to be in.

    Yes art is very subjective but like all things there are limits. I read once that at an art gallery, the cleaner accidentally left the the mop and bucket in the open. So when people came to gallery, they thought it was an art piece and they praised it. People just want an excuse to find meaning in everything, i know rich bored people love doing that. Thats what I'm against, art that is not worth being called art. But then again, that contradicts the idea of art being subjective. Anyways, I will hate on it either way and nothing anyone can ever do about it, :)

    As for cover art, Hybrid Theory has to come first for me. The only album artwork booklet I have is for A Thousand Suns, and I really like the "glitchy" and distorted pictures and graphics. Meteora has a really interesting cover, too, which gives the album a really cool feel. Minutes To Midnight are both simplified and are supposed to represent something else, perhaps what is happening with the music. I'm the furthest thing from an art major or someone who really understands the meanings of these things, but I have an appreciation for it, regardless, and for the people that can comprehend all these abstract thoughts.

    I am neither rich or bored and I love art. Yes, there are some artist's who I just don't get, but I cannot discredit an entire art period for it. The fact that you are is very unfair. Modern art is more than just boxes and lines.

    It seems to me like you have more of a problem with rich people (since you keep bringing it up) more so than you do with art. I am not jealous of anyone. I am happy where I am financially. If people can make more money than me, that's good on them. I'll let them be them and I'll keep being me.

    I also read somewhere that Emma Stone was supposed to come over yesterday dressed in a French maid outfit, but that didn't happen...

    The Special Edition (or whatever it is) that I bought allows me to choose from several images to use as the front cover art by flipping the booklet around - it was an effort to cater to people who didn't want to sell the album with its intial cover, I guess, but I thought it was a cool idea :)
