Well now that could be the worst album art I've ever seen! grin

I'm looking forward to the album though. It won't be released in the US until April 12. angry

Well certain Genesis sleeves weren`t exactly great works of art.

Invisible Touch,Genesis,CAS,Abacab to name just four.

But that Elbow one is particularly shite cheesy

I've always liked the art on the Abacab cover(s). A bit abstract like the music inside. I don't have a problem with the art for this Elbow album. Simple and direct as it is probably meant to be.

I knew I'd get that response from someone! Complex in its simplicity! Beautiful in its ugliness! Brilliant in its utter stupidity! grin

Nahh, I just think it's lame. Simplicity is fine... this looks like it was painted by my six-year-old....

... six-year-old Australian Shepherd. cheesy

But seriously, I like the Abacab cover also. Duke... not so much.

But that's not what it is. It's so easy to ridicule what one misunderstands.

Agreed, it can be interesting.

And when my daughter was six, all of her artwork was stunningly beautiful. Now she's 17 and we can admit that it was lame. She begs us to take it off the refrigerator. cheesy

(You didn't miss my follow-up line about the six-year-old, did you?)

Well now your first response was nice and conversational. Then you had to delete it and replace it with something snarky at me. Oh, Henry, Henry, Henry.... Can't we be friends? smiley

Not an Elbow fan I'm afraid. However, the cover, while I agree it isn't good, is no worse really than, say, Duke. Never liked that one either much. undecided
