    I can see the appeal in this after thinking about it a bit and looking at some other opinions, but I absolutely can't imagine some designer going "Wow... Look at that. Now, we should lead people on a frustrating three day campaign just to see this."

    This cover does not have any connection with the motif of any of the art they've released thus far in teasers. Shame.

    Hopefully they'll explain what the artwork means.

    I said this in another thread, but once people see the symbolism in this I think it'll have a lot more appeal.

    It seems like people aren't really getting that it's supposed to be a sun that's dying/decaying. It's like a white sun in a black space, but with the colors reversed. Even if it's not the most impressive graphics in the world, who cares? If there were anything else added to this picture, the stark contrast between the black and the white would be subdued.

    Yeah, I usually defend the band to the death...but right now I'm thinking that for a three day campaign, this is totally disappointing.

    I like the simplicity of it and it is already growing on me, and I'm sure once it's in context with the rest of the artwork and music it will make sense.

    Same. It's very disappointing. I think I will make my own cover and put it in instead of this black smudge...I won't but you get what I mean.

    Personally, i think the album cover is awesome. And to those who are disappointed, i am sorry to hear that. It shouldnt be about the artwork of the album but what the music on the album is. There are plenty of albums out there that don't have great artwork, but the music on the album is fantastic. So even though the artwork may or may not be cool to look at, it IS about the music that is created, and that is what should be judged overall.

    When I get albums whose cover art I hate, that's exactly what I do... I just never thought I'd have to do it for a Linkin Park album. *sigh*

    Can we at least all agree it's better than the MTM artwork?

    That was just awful.

    You know what this really confirms?

    Linkin Park is one ballsy band. And they're taking a chance every way they can with this new album.
