Last I saw... (On m b v's artwork)
« on: February 03, 2013, 07:37:49 AM »
I'd really like to know more about the artwork. There are a lot of things hidden under the blue-led color. Also..who did it? It would be great to know that too.
What is the sentence on the "black square" supposed to be/come from?

The black square says:

Nothing is this
and yes I
Really love
you

Nothing Is and Is This and Yes are 2 songs of the album - so perhaps I Really Love You is a future B-Side?  Maybe I am holding out for too much there.   :grin:

I decided to use the album artwork as a desktop image, and I happened to see a photo of Kevin's face and Bilinda! Also there's some kind of church/candle/tower I can't identify!

Theory: Some of the photographs layered in the cover are of Kevin's studio.

For example, there are lots of what look like cables everywhere, and in the bottom left corner is a Roland space Echo:



The angles and perspective of the cover shifts weirdly as you look at it. It really suits the record. They should have left the purple m b v off of it and just had the subtle watermarked font instead.

I don't know about the 16/44.1 WAV or the 320 MP3s, but the 24/96 WAV version has plenty of dynamic range and headroom. It's a glorious sound.

I'd like to have a 2.50mx2.50m version of the album artwork. I'd cover one of my room's wall and I'd stare at it trying to understand it. It's one of those things you get lost in.
