Cover Story 4.0
The image Brett chose for his supposedly confessional -and ungood- solo debut does not suggest honesty, does it? Nor is it a new picture. It was taken for a magazine several years ago.
Another 90's baby. Much improved from her last look, but she looks severely constricted in that coat. Again, it suggests something other than a very personal record. I've heard the single - it sounds just like Cranberries music, with wonkily "earnest" lyrics.
Travis' new disc. Don't like it at all. Child in Iraqi sandstorm? Creepy like my banner! Pretty song Battleships is now streaming at their myspace. UPDATE: This is FAKE!
Viva La South. One woman gaily hopping on flowers. Another woman determined to fuck that bitch over. Ot maybe it's the same woman, fucking over herself.
This cover is not at all what I expected. I guess it's supposed to be like a movie poster, but the music is nothing like movie music.
Who ever heard of actual art on an album cover? Keane maybe. This is whimsical folk art. I'd like to think I could have done this myself with some scissors and construction paper.
