COBL cover



Here is the actual cover for the City of Blinding Lights single. (taken from u2.com) I like it a lot. I was a little skeptical after seeing the promo cover but this makes me happy.

This is the best looking cover for a U2 single in a long time.

I've enjoyed all the single covers from Bomb. Especially the All Because of You one. The Vertigo cover would be the weakest one in my opinion.

Bono and the Edge both are featured exclusively on covers, what about Larry and Adam? NOT FAIR!!

Absolutely!

Sometimes the artwork leaves a lot to be desired, but this is a very cool looking cover. More in the vein of Achtung Baby/Zooropa/Pop - there were some really interesting covers then.

All I need now are for them to start releasing vinyl properly again. Then I can have really cool, really big covers!
