Cover Story


I see he's going for groovy, it's just not my thing. Where is the bus from Little Sunshine... shouldn't that be on here? And what about Janis from the Muppets?


Much better! Love it, but then I loved the Supergrass cover too.


Oy. Aside from the awful concept of BC warbling French tunes, the album cover
kind of fails at its attempt at stylistic kitsch.

I, too, was pondering the MIKA album cover art today... still not yet come to a decision on it yet. It's kinda James Blunt-y, in that they're neither are the typical "hottie" pop stars, so they go for the abstract/cartoonish colorful artwork.

Belinda looks like a world-weary madame.

The Mika cover-good, nice but nothing really new.

Bloc Party-ultra dull.

Belinda-like the concept but shame about the quality of the finished product.

If you like that Bloc Party cover, check out TV On The Radio's 'Desperate Youth, Blood Thirsty Babes' ;)

I think we could all photoshop Belinda a better cover!

Yes, Ciara, good call re: TV On The Radio.

Janis from the muppets! I had a big ole LOL when I read that! Yeah, where is Janis? She must've been busy the day Mika finalized the cover.
