Here's what i mean by transparent cover:
Btw i really hope LP trick us with this cover and then will suprise us when the album comes out.
I think the important thing here is that after 27 pages, not much new has been said.
BUT, Asua and a few others made me think of something. (If you said what inspired this post, PM me and I'll edit the post to include you...if you are so inclined.)
Okay, so some people mentioned over exposure in a camera. If you point the camera at a person or object with a bright background and set your exposure to the background, the object appears as a silhouette. Examples would be...see someone standing in front a cars head lights. You can't see their features. The same thing can occur with any light source.
Asua, what if this is, in fact, a piece of art, but perhaps they have placed a light source behind it so they can draw out the reveal longer? Furthermore, you said that maybe this was the back cover (evil Asua might have something there.) What if this is the back of the piece, with the light source in front of it. Maybe we'll see the front of the piece?
There might be some people here who just love the piece because it's LP, but most of the members who have been here for a while are level headed and cool about things. Most of them are. Anyway, I haven't seen very many people who have loved it instantly, so that's not the case here, but earlier on in the thread people were attacking LP for a "stupid decision" when the fact of the matter is, we don't know the whole story. Perhaps people should calm down, take a deep breath, and just wait. More will be revealed eventually.
Oh. And this might be a bit more evidence to back up my claim. LP.com has this image, but there is no website that has the image in relation to their preorders. So maybe, just maybe, there is more to be seen.
I really don't know about that. As much as I would love for your theories to be true, I'm not sure if LP's official facebook, and mike's blog would trumpet this as the official art if it wasn't indeed so. I'm really thinking that what we're seeing here is it, and there's no special reveal going on. What you're seeing (imho) is what we're gonna get. No part 2. Nothing. This is the cover.
wu tang park ain't nothin' to fuck wit
Yeah...that does seem to be the case. I was just trying to appease of the other members who want it to be different. I like the image, but it just seems like there are unanswered questions from a lot of people. And I'm tired of the fighting going back and forth. Person 1 says they don't like the image and implies that whoever does is stupid. Person 2, feeling insulted, says the same thing back to Person 1.
I just want to point out, like a lot of other people have, that this is not the album. It's album cover! That means, there is more art to come, and even a CD inside if we're lucky.
Amen. I've seen CDs with a crap cover, but killer inside art.
If we're not lucky we will get a cessette I think..
If we end up looking for a CD and find this album in the vinyl section, I'll crap myself.
They are selling a Vinyl of it . Check Amazon....and then your pants.
Oops...I guess it's laundry day a little earlier than expected.
What I meant though was if it was only released on vinyl. It would either fail, or boost the sales of turntables.
I had a really awesome turn-table but I lost it when I moved because my dad put it in the storage and didn't have money to pay the bill. This has happened several times, with several of my things. Dreamcast, Saturn, Genesis, SNES, GBA... Okay well that is making me depressed so I'm going to think about how awesome A Thousand Suns will be
I found the meaning behind the cover.
A Thousand Suns
Mr. Game & Watch
Coincidence? I think not.
I keep seeing "this isn't art" constantly about this, and you know what I think? No one really has any right to say whether it's art or not. Just because it's not art to you doesn't mean that it's not art period.
And to be honest, I think this is ten times better than all of the artwork for Minutes to Midnight put together. The artwork for that album was some of the blandest, most boring artwork I've ever seen.
@Xero21: You're like the 500th person to mention that similarity .
Darn! Though I'm not surprised because it is clearly Mr. Game And Watch's head.
Where's that Mike did it for teh lulz picture when you need it?
Wow. *minor head trauma*
It's not quite that but:
I agree that it is definitely better than M2M artwork.
