There's a sense of equality about the picture that I like. To me it says 'We are U2 (whether you like it or not)'. No LVs up front or moodly landscapes.. what you see is what you get.

from a graphic design stand point it is very dynamic. You can NEVER go wrong with B&W and Red. Also the diagonal red slash marks are reminicent of toxic waste markings or industrial danger zone type symbols.


Its growing on me, but I'm just waiting for the tunes.

Bono on the new album cover (from Blender magazine)


"Over dinner, Bono frets about tomorrow's shoot for the album cover. He wants to portray the band as friends who have made it into their 40s and accept each other, faults and all. Perhaps, Bono suggests, a picture of U2 sitting around a cafe table drinking coffee and talking"


Looks like the band was looking for something simple and straight forward.

I think I'll just replace the CD insert with GibsonGirl's version of the cover.

As will I. Heck, it would take a lot to top that cover!
