kinda reminds me of the reasoning they had for the cover art of their greatest hits comp.
Yeah, I remember that. I think it's great. The intentionality is obvious, the picture is great, and it can mean so many different things. The color pallet reminds me of "Living Well Is the Best Revenge" -- the red/black.
awesome artwork. this reminds me of when we first saw the 'Devil and God..' artwork. at first you're kind of like... wtf? weird choice, but after a while it will be instantly recognizable and iconic for the album.
