Don't you just love the cover art of the new Bowie album?

You're not serious, I hope.

I've seen weirder. It's like a Keane painting.

It's a better cover than the tragic one for Hours..., I suppose, but it's absolute trash compared to the cover of Heathen.

I was going to say something about the neo-futurism-cartoon network quality about it...but it's much more applicable to say it looks like "shit."

It reminds me of the Day In Day Out cover. Awful!!

Total Redd Kross ripoff, man.

Funny, I was just talking about the horridness of that cover art with a friend of mine. But Bowie's album covers tend not to be exactly what you'd call classics... (Love Lodger's cover, though.)

Every Bowie cover like Hours. Mourning over the death of his previous haircut.

I like the cover! I'm still waiting to deliver my opinion on the music, though. So far it's not coming close to grabbing me the way Heathen did.

Earthling is DEAD! Long live Hours!

I bought hours... the day it came out and there were no hologram copies to be seen. Now, there's a big stack of them at Amoeba; but I'm not gonna buy that album again just for the hologram cover. Grrrr...

Everything about that cover is so gawdawful. I mean, it really is the quintessential example of What the FUCK were you THINKING???

Album Covers that beg the Question: What the Hell were You THINKING?
