    I find it funny that people seemed to dislike the MTM artwork.
    Personally, I don't like this cover. I would've preferred the pixelated one more. Just looks too much like the "teddy-bear" example I brought up in a different thread. Haha.

    Seems like a solar eclipse. And those rays cut from the image, like they cutting those lp.com backgrounds.
    Interesting, but I don't like it. Similar like MTM b&w cover a bit.

    I think they wanted the music to stand on it's own. Fuck the artwork. I mean it could be the greatest cover ever but if the music sucks then why does it matter. I think LP is trying to show us that the art doesn't really matter. let the music speak for itself. Leave a blank emotion on a cover and you can portray EVERY emotion with it. Get what you want out of it

    I like it. It's minimalistic piece to me and it indicates the escape of something form the blackness.

    ...but wouldn't that be more of the same? We've seen them paint, we've seen Mike's art included on an album. We've seen the cheesy photo shots of the band staring across the ocean. The fact some people can't understand this, and are debating is exactly their intention. It's getting people talking, people are interested, the meaning is not clear and the interpretations can come from anywhere and to have that in ANY art can only be a good thing. This is different, everything we have experienced about A Thousand suns so far has been different, and that, in this day and age is hard to accomplish.

    It doesn't have to have either. Plenty of album covers are like that.

    I think I sort of like it in any case. I at least don't hate it and it seems like it could grow on me.

    *points to my post* Yup, glad I'm not the only one that thinks so.
    The more I stare at it, the less I'm seeing what they intended us to see. And I'm not even sure what that is.

    Oh well, i like the concept, the idea behind the cover, but i can't say i like the execution of it, they could have made a cover iwth no name, a simple cover, and a better one, in my opinion, also in this particular cover i think it should have 3 colours, we know it look's like an exploding star, but the part that is "exploding" it's white, and the background it's also white so it doesn't stands out much, i must say a litlle disappointed, and also at this moment i would prefer the pixel image, whether it's gonna grow in to me, i can't really say

    It just proves to me that LP are taking an all or nothing approach with this album. It's almost like they're risking everything and putting it all on the line to make a musical statement.

    And in 10 days we'll see just how bold that statement will be.

    I like it, the only problem I have is there should be a couple dots for stars(Unless this means the sun destroyed everything.)

    ...and lets not forget there might be a different cover for the special edition.

    Art is really important to me, but honestly, right now I don't care as long as the music is good. :lol:
    But, it would be nicer if they changed this cover imo. Bleh.

    As being an artist myself, i am REALLY DISAPPOINTED from the artwork. I know its about the music as well but come on, we always had the BEST OF THE BEST album art from HT till Collision Course or u can count M2M too as it was WAY BETTER than this MICKEY MOUSE. I never expected the art to be so cheap and meaningless knowing LP have 2 professional brilliant artists, Mike and Hahn.

    Such a BRILLIANT Resemblance, Disgrace to LP's Artwork:

    I like it :cool: Reminds me of some post-rock album arts, more minimalistic though but still :D I only hope they'll leave it just as it is without logo and then do a really large and juicy booklet ^^
