You see, I quite like that one. Vivid colours, blonde chick in bikini, psychopath in balaclava and stylishly ripped t-shirt, juxtaposition of terrifying danger scenario with sunny summer theme, what's the problem?

Hmm. Your replies have got me thinking I might have it wrong. Maybe that girl is really mean and likes to make fun of people, and this poor chap is obviously wearing an outfit that some people might find questionable in a beach setting.

It could be that he knows the girl well from her constant rudeness and jeering on the local beach, and he's raising his had apprehensively as he peers out from a hiding place he darted over to, thinking this mean spirited 'predator' might have seen him, making him a target or the 'easy prey' for needless mockery.

You could be onto something there TIM. After all, two of the tracks are entitled Hawk Mistress and Demon Witch. Maybe all is not as it seems at the beach?

You're both wrong. Just look at the backside of the cover!

What do you mean? She's obviously attacking him, leaping on his shoulders to deal the death blow to the back of the neck. It would appear as if he's quite enjoying the confrontation too!

That's his knife blip. Obviously, his genitals would be a bit higher up, if beach-chick killing zombies had any....

Good call Doomy, I find amazing that a band that had incredibly clever album titles/covers in the past would, when going with the word 'Relapse' go for the most obvious image in the most obvious way. Hopefully the music will be good though!!

maiden's Dance of Death deserves to be in this discussion. weird digital unfinished art going to print as a final design is pretty bad, when put in line with a band known for legendary art it's extra bad.

I have to step in here, as much as I don't want to ever come to the defense of this band because I hate their stinking guts as human beings in the current incarnation.

But you sir are out of your fucking mind!! Kill 'em All is awesome, and the album art is stellar knuckleheaded 80's metal imagery too. I love that record and always will.

Wow, records labels must be cutting on the budgets quite seriously to release something like that... must have been designed by an intern...

I challenge all of you to try this!!! It's a cool thing I learned accidentally whilst working at a college radio station (long story):

Get a copy of "I'm On Fire" by Bruce and play it at a faster speed (45 rpm instead of 33 rpm, for example, or 150% digitally) and tell me that it doesn't fucking sound just like Dolly Parton!!

First off. There is some comedy gold in this thread.

Second. Doomy is right, the new Ministry album cover is a contender.

Third...

There's a good chunk off the Boss I like. Nebraska and The River are pretty damn solid.

The song Atlantic City is fantastic.

Agreed I Don't Need God. Nebraska is a fucking awesome album. "State Trooper" is bad ass. I'll also admit to liking "I'm On Fire." And his cover of Suicide's "Dream Baby Dream isn't bad either.

And his cameo on Lou Reed's "Street Hassle." But that's it for me.

That was liberating.

I have no trouble admitting I like almost anything by the Boss until the mid-80's. Born To Run, Nebraska, I love these. Not joking.
