1) Looks like I have to get the special edition to get all the songs. Thanks, Symphony X.
2) That is fucking atrocious cover art. I didn't know the Dance of Death guy was still getting work.

Agreed on both counts.

The artwork for the regular edition is good, the special edition is horrible.

They used the same early test version of Photoshop, I think.

This is the opposite of true. Actually, no, the opposite would imply that the special edition was good, which it isn't. It just makes me vomit less than the regular.

Im just saying that if im looking at cds in a store that cover would catch my attention. I dont get why guys are so picky about album covers, I think any cover that looks like the artist put real effort into it and there is observations to be made about it then the cover is doing it's job.

These are bad covers (dont grab your attention or make you curious about the artist):

Kill has a great cover, son. The whole "zombies doing weird shit with other zombies" shtick is shocking for approximately one cover. I think Kill might be the best CC cover.

As we all know an album is only good if the album cover doesn't suck.


But seriously, I will be a first day buyer.

It's part of the aesthetic package. It can't make a bad album good or a good album bad, but it can certainly be a solidifying factor in what makes something a real masterpiece.

Also, I've seen a pretty high amount of shitty album covers this year, and the fact that this one is coming from one of my favorite bands just makes it worse. :(
