    I think someone else mentioned the same thing, but that's almost identical to the Faith +1 cover from South Park :lol:

    When I said "ridiculous," I meant over-the-top artwork that they put almost as much work into as the actual music itself. I didn't say the new cover was ridiculous, I said it was unnecessary. To strip down your sound is one thing, but to strip down your artwork is just pushing it, and makes me feel like they're overdoing it.

    I'm just glad they didn't strip down themselves.

    Yeah, I definitely love the cover, too. The simplicity and all the whitespace gives the feeling that LP just wants to start anew with a "clean slate" so to speak and I think the whitespace is symbolic of that. It starts their new direction off with this album from the moment you see the front of the case, till you pop the album in, and listen to their new sound is probably the idea with it. I'm glad they've moved away from the graffiti, grunge stuff. The entire insert will probably have lots of badass art/pictures on it though.

    Hmmm, quite simplistic. I am against bands having their members on the cover, but it'll do. I still perfer Hybrid Theory and Meteora's cover however.

    I personally think that its good. Very simplistic. Though, I do agree that it is slightly boy band-ish, which I do not like. Still, I like it. I hope they have some cool artwork in it, though.

    Album cover looks awesome. I like the way Brad is the 'odd-one-out'.

    I'm digging the whole serious grown up look. Are they looking at the sea? or the desert?

    Yeah. Even I didn't say it wasn't creative. It's just not something I could see coming from Linkin Park.

    Who cares about the album art? As long as the music's good, they could use MS Paint to make an album cover for all I care.

    should have a contest for LPA people to make their version of what they think an MTM cover should be, but only using Paint lol.

    but seriously, you make a very good point. it's all a/b the music, man!

    We're discussing it because we don't have any music to discuss right now. One single isn't enough to have a decent discussion over (because all the other discussions just keep going around in circles). Therefore, we're talking about the cover, and how the next thing you'll know, the band will be performing in a music video in the rain.

    Wait...

    I think...that the cover is really cool, and that even if the cover sucked, i would still love it. Because i am an obsessive LP freak. its kinda sad..but yet amazing. i think LP is a great band to be obsessed over, cuz they are changing their sound, and they just have an overall unique sound, which i admire from them.
    Wow, what a random post..oh well :D
