Cool, but I prefered the old artwork.
Troy Killjoy - 18.11.2011 at 20:09  
Pff. And I was all excited for some new album info.

What's the sense of re-released this album "a spectacular new graphic design" (only)? Not so spectacular btw... As I remember original version didn't have poor sound quality, so I have no idea why this serves (material benefits?). That's with most of the re-released albums, so I don't complain.

I also waited for some new album info .

Saaame. I don't think I'm going to re-buy this for 1 bonus track and some new liner notes.

There is nothing wrong with the perspective in that picture.

My $65,000 art degree begs to differ.

For me, there's 2 perspective problems. First, the image, itself, is flat and second, the reaper character looks like a blob. The flatness of the image can be traced back to a few things. First off putting an object (reaper) on the side of a scenery image kills a lot of the depth. Also, the scenery has very little distinguishable objects.....it just all blends together, to me. Then the reaper dude...I had to spend a minute looking at it to understand what kind of pose he's in. His right arm is neither going away from or coming toward you, but rather goes straight down, then to the left. His other arm is either invisible or has been misguidedly placed behind the body, which to my eyes looks unnatural. The twist his body is doing is also unnatual, to me. The scyth, like the first arm, is perfectly paralleled to the point of view...why not make it go away from us, creating some great depth? This isn't necessarily WRONG perspective, but neither is a stick figure, ya know?

Totally see what you mean about the reaper. It looks like he's about to do that dance move from the '70s where you bend your knees and extend your one arm straight out and kind of bounce it across to the other side of you.

For me this album drastically outshines the rest of their discography, but too bad the re-release is so uninteresting of an event, let alone the new cover art quite boring and not really representative for the attitude I take from the album. (And it also not being compelling to begin with.) But hey, cool for those who don't have it to get the extra track. I'll pass and continue to enjoy my original release "The Calling" always sounds brilliant while driving late at night.
