After news broke of the U2 CD being lost/stolen/whatever, several articles appeared touting "Vertigo" as the name of the album.

Am I the only one who hopes the band isn't featured on the cover? It's just sooooo boring...how many poses can they really be expected to strike? I hope they go with some interesting art.

If you go to govertigo.com, you get a message that says "THIS IS IT. GOVERTIGO.COM"

Very interesting...

Anyone else realize that this "Vertigo" rumor is just going to hurt the band in the long run?

Say the album is NOT titled Vertigo. If people read the news that says "the upcoming U2 album, titled Vertigo..." and are just casual fans, they'll go into a music store once it's out, look in the U2 section for something called Vertigo, see it's not there, and leave. That's a sale that was just lost.

This could hurt sales.

Yeah, that is too bad about the sales.
But i actually like the fake cover. But that's just me.
It's funny, just today, at my granma's house, i asked my grandma about a lovely pink and yellow rose and she said it was called a Love and Peace rose. then i remembered that, i think, 1 rumor about the album was that it included a song called "Love and Peace (or else)" (someone correct me if i'm mistaken.) but i thought, IF that is a song on the new album, and they havent decided on a title or art for it yet, maybe they could call it "Love and Peace (or Else)" and put a Love and Peace rose on the cover (or include the rose somehow.) Just a thought.
Any reactions?

That fake cover just blew up one of the symbols from ATYCLB(Grace), so yeah, I like it. But only for that song, on that album. Like others have mentioned, anyone who has PhotoShop or something similar could have done that.

I don't think the album's rumored name will hurt sales, if it doesn't turn out to be the truth. I'm sure the title will be all over the place by the time it's released. And casual U2 fans probably don't even realize that an album has been in the works.

The pic looks like a phoenix to me!

Talking about covers, is it true that the American version of Boy hadn't got Peter Rowen on the cover?

Yes. It had picture of the band's faces, apparently they were afraid of pedophilia (spelling?) allegations.

DaveC: that may be, but if they don't find "Vertigo", they can browse through all U2 albums under U2 section and still find, um, whatever it is it will be called. Or they can simply ask the employee in the store; I know I have often looked for a CD, didn't find it, asked the employee and he found it for me.

That's crap! Who would fall for that one considering the band have been on the front of every cover except for Zooropa!
Yeah...I could have told you it was fake from the start. Very amateurish, and the shading on that 3D logo looks like it came straight out of 1990.

I bought a vinyl copy of "Boy" in the UK with the Peter Rowen cover. I like how it rounds off my very humble collection.

You'll know when you see the real thing. Don't be fooled until then.

aww that is sad, but there are a lot of hoaxes going around in regards of the new album. I am sure whatever u2 decide for an album cover and even if not, it is the music that counts in the end.
