    As I've said before, it's better than MTM and Meteora. Also, for once LP have actually given us some artwork that is open to interpretation of what it is and/or represents which is a reflection of their lyrics.

    And anyway, love it or hate it it's the music that counts. Some of the most recognised records in history have had pretty unspectacular album covers e.g. Abbey Road by The Beatles, The Wall by Pink Floyd etc.

    Didn't Mike say a few times that the artwork for this record would be "sick" and "their best artwork ever"?

    Is this the final image? Or will the final one have the band logo/name/album name etc?

    Haha, although it is funny it is easy to replicate, the duration it can take to create a piece of art shouldn't determine the success of it IMO.

    I'm disappointed.

    It looks like a cartoon character whose mouth is wide open and it's eyes are shooting out white lights, you can even see its ear in the top right and its nose.

    Also, black and white is cool and all, but two albums in a row? Seriously.

    Eh, I'd disagree with that. I'd prefer the past 3 album covers to this one. Maybe I'll warm up to it eventually. :)

    I LOVE it!

    It's such a bold and unexpected move from them which is why I love it so much. Everyone had there own expectations and desires for the album art and they release this. It's like a giant slap to the face and a "Fuck you! this is OUR band and we will do what WE want" statement to everyone (harsh but this is what I get out of it). If it relates to how they are going to step up and release some music that is completely different than our expectations and defy what everyone thinks this band should be or could be then color me even more excited than I ever could have been. Bring it on LP!

    Hopefully it will look better with the text on it.

    You also have to think about those people who DO judge a book by its cover. There are always hundreds of people in the world who do that, and will look at this a probably think its going to be bad.

    I think I'd rather they didn't put text on it. One way or another it seems like an image that'd be better off without it.

    This is the album cover. There will be no text. Just like The Catalyst. Also, I hope they don't ruin it and put text on it, I'd prefer it without.

    I love the energy and power in the art. the idea of the supernova is just very enthusing. I get how some people don't like it, but i have a liking to it. First time i saw a dove and I didn't really, but when i saw the supernova i loved it. Plus i love the idea of having nothing on it, no words or logos!
