The cover would have been with Dr. Manhattan on it. Or Simone.

Nice cover, not so sure on the album name. "Design your Universe" sounds like the tag-line to some new Sims game.

Wow, that album cover is brilliant! I like how that lady is upside down, with her head in the water and her body in the air. I think the album title is pretty cool as well. It fits nice with the cover.

With a cover like that, makes me feel that the album may have some eastern influences.

Nice cover, is like an alternative female-shape budda being drowned with the city into the fire! surprise to see that the chick is not Simone, but cool anyway, 13 songs as they recorded in The Divine COnspiracy, and the last song, as usually, is the name of the album. I can't wait to listen to this one!

Amazing cover art ! Hopefully this will sound different, but in a good way. A Divine Conspiracy did bore me a bit

Yes, I'm really loving this cover art, and most of all interested to see if the band continues to increase its heaviness or will return to a more balladesque approach!
