Guys,

the album cover looks anything but gothic! it's really weird actually - he's topless, but you basically only see his face and his hands. one hand is in front of his forehead, one in front of his chin. with his palms looking into the camera. you can also see the birthmark quite clearly.
one could say it's intended to look vulnerable.

"No sir, I don't like it."

Oh well... I care more about the music anyway. But that birthmark is freaky! It does look like a burn. Nothing to be ashamed about though.

DEF. vulnerable lookin if that was the intention

at first look, i thought he had lipstick on, but i think thats just all the red surrounding the pic. on second look, i like it.

the man is NOT afraid of what people think though, and you just gotta respect that.

now he definitely turned into Glass lol

That's a really tight photo of him. Different, yeah, but well designed. I like how seamless his arms-to-head is, such as his finger on his right hand lining up perfectly with his shoulder. It makes it look like it's someone else's arms instead of his.

1) I don't want to hear the jokes from non-BC fans about it.

2) It's not the kind of image that's going to draw people into buying the album, which will hurt sales.

3) I was hoping for good sales because it might increase the chances of more things being officially released, such as Metro DVD, "Chicago" show DVD, Dijali Zwan complete recordings, etc.

4) While I'm no art expert, this particular image seems to be trying a little too hard.

a fullon shot of the birthmark would have been much cooler. Maybe just his hand.

Its the "vouge" pose, the pastyiness, the shirtlessness, and the facial closeup that creeps me out.

selection7
04-23-2005, 03:48 AM
the good: it makes me feel we won't get an overproduced album with poppy song titles like "Baby, let's rock!"

the bad: I can guarantee I won't want to look at that cover everytime I go to listen to the album. No wonder Billy was so self-conscious about his birthmark. It's so much more obvious that I would've thought and looks absolutely bruised and bloodied.

Imagine the huge letdown the record company execs must've felt when they saw Billy's commercial suicide cover :D . The album better be pretty darn edgy or the cover will just seem stupid in the long run.

Nevertheless, I haven't really liked most of his album covers, save for SD, MCIS, MSOTS and maybe FAEOMM. As long as the music's great, I don't think I'll care.

But I don't think it's cool to be naked on your album cover.

And yeah, the framing his face thing, kind of looks like he's trying too hard. If he wanted to move away from seeming egotistic and pretentious he should have used a more casual photo.

I don't know, sometimes Billy seems so naive.

Someone on another forum I post at said the cover has "already been proven to be fake..." I hope he's right.

Are you for real?

I can understand when a song sounds like it’s not up to much people saying ‘Give it a chance to sink in!”. But a photo? How far exactly are you up Billy Corgan’s ass? If this was an album by a band you didn’t like, would you give the cover picture chance to ‘sink in’? What are we meant to do when we buy the album, stand around for a few hours staring at the cover shot, contemplating Billy?

You’re delusional. I’m only warning you for your own good.

well, if the man liked that pic and picked it out... i dont know what you can say really. he's being himself and you can either respect that or make fun of him for it... but no one said you had to like it...

i guess you can't like billy corgan anymore... shit man, what if the man came out tom. and said he was a flaming homosexual?? who's gives a flying shit... its a fucking cd cover and its unique, in my book thats ok by me

he's still billy corgan and if his music still kicks ass ill proudly walk into a music store and by that cd.

THis thread makes me laugh a lot.

To be honest, listening to A100 in light of this cover is very different. It's like...he takes himself seriously...
I have a hard time picturing the guy on the cover singing such a song...

I was thinking of this cover too, and thinking BC with boobs would be better than the current one. I might do a photoshop.

the actual cover looks like the cover of some artist that doens't play an instrument if that makes any sense

That's a really beautiful picture. I wish that was the album art. It isn't adorish at all, I get a very Victorian England feel from it.

I will allow this current cover if the music makes up for it.

Yeah, it inspires me to puke. Like I said before, even if the back of the booklet is a solid brown or something, I will still flip it over. Or make my own cover. The kittens one is alright. But add "a.k.a. TheFutureEmbrace"

Well I thought I'd never see the day when this kind of statment would hold any resonance but at this point it does seem like the ugly truth. Of course everyone says wait wait until the album is released in full, wait we can't jump the gun! Well I'm just gonna go ahead and start bracing myself for the worse anyway ...and listen to some more arcade fire in the meantime. ;)
