Album cover? @ 02:02 am

arcmorality:
I'm currently feelin: shocked shocked

Damn I hope this isn't the album cover!!! That would be horrific!

But I do love this picture that's on the front of the new U2 calendar! Would be a good cover.

I actually kind of like the picture...they all look so laid-back. I think it's good.

I actually like it...I really like the picture. They look so laid-back, which appeals to me. I mean, the covers to previous albums were definitely better (I just don't think it gets too much better than the cover to the Unforgettable Fire, and I like the picture for ATYCLB) but it's a good picture.

I'd prefer the 2005 calendar as the cover for HTDAAB. This new "cover" that's surfaced doesn't really look much like a U2 album cover to me... :| I mean, I like the picture, but it just seems a little...incomplete.

I agree. Do you have a link to the calendar cover?

I actually really like it.
I think it works very nice with the title.
It's simple yet, out there.
Very a-catching.

I like it.. it's an album cover after all. And I mean, U2 album covers were never that great. :P

'U2 album covers were never that great.'

If you don't count Boy, October, War, UABRS, War, JT, RAH, Zooropa, Pop, and ATYCLB, I agree! I can't distinguish much on the WAIA cover (at first I thought it was a hairy cat), and AB ... I just don't like it.

Edge looks horrible on that supposed cover. At this point, I don't believe it. I think they'd go for something more creative than that.

it appears to me that they are going back to a retro look, in terms of design and font of their new artwork. hopefully that indicates the overall direction of the new music. i've been hoping they return to a more energetic, aggressive sound that they had in their youth and have slid away from in recent years. case in point: the mid-tempo of their classics on the past couple of tours. i will follow, out of control, sunday bloody sunday, 11 o'clock tick tock, and new years day. they all sound much slower now than they originally did. it's like the fire and passion have dwindled away. it's just not quite as pronounced as what sting has become when compared to the high energy of early police.

well, they are middle aged now, and have seen much of the world :)
I hear it too, in the live versions of those songs. even pride. sad, but understandable. good comparison with sting/police.

Oh, I disagree. I actually like it a lot... the main gripe I have with album covers these days are that they're much too busy... I like the simpleness of this one. It lets the music speak louder than anything else. (assuming that it actually is the cover)...
Think of the "Unforgettable Fire" cover without the music... kinda frightening really.

I'm disappointed by the lack of colour in the new style. :/  It's got a bit more colour than ATYCLB, but *only* a bit!!

It's kinda weak... We should have a community contest to design an album cover ;)

It's lame. What's with the red? The calender cover would work much better.
