Cover-sation is a new feature here on Figment News where we’ll post an album cover from Figment and ask you what you think of it.  Good, bad, indifferent?  What do you like about the cover’s design?  What don’t you like?  How might you have approached the same cover?  In short, we’ll have a conversation about an album cover design…a Cover-sation if you will.

J.T. Florence, aka Wun, is one-man band in the truest sense of the word, and “Recyclone” while a joint effort with his late brother Matthias was truly a D.I.Y. release.  Released on the opening day of Wun’s epic World Tour with bigPEBBLE, this bootleg recording was sold only as a 45 RPM Vinyl record at the band’s merch booth.  With it’s limited release it’s already a collector’s item, but it’s striking and original cover is in our opinion yet another reason to covet a copy.  What do you think?

Fait Accompli released “Malevolence” in 2009, but it remains their best selling album to date.  While the band has been on hiatus for some time, this album cover has stuck with me in the 4 years since its release.  How about you?  Tell us what you think.

Pragmatica’s “The Grace Parade” is to this date the band’s most successful album.  While the band remains popular, “The Grace Parade” clearly struck a cord, and I think the cover has a lot to do with it.  The question is what do you think?

As some of you may know Riki Milligan, Eccentric Arcade’s lead singer, lost his father this week.  All of us at Figment would like to extend our condolences to Riki and his family for their loss.  In Riki’s father’s honor, we thought it only fitting to have a Cover-sation about Eccentric Arcade’s “Machines Again” album cover.  So let us know what you think.

Cover-sation

Cover-sation is a new feature here on Figment News where we’ll post an album cover from Figment and ask you what you think of it.  Good, bad, indifferent?  What do you like about the cover’s design?  What don’t you like?  How might you have approached the same cover?  In short, we’ll have a conversation about an album cover design…a Cover-sation if you will…

I’d like to thank Figment player frizbee for suggesting this feature.  It was an idea he hatched while going through his Figment album collection and listening to older albums.  While doing it he realized how much he appreciated the design work that went into so many covers on Figment and thought, I’d love to be able to talk to other players about some of the covers I think are great.  So thanks frizbee for suggesting such a great feature, and since he came up with the idea we thought it only fair that he get the first opportunity to suggest an album cover (in subsequent Cover-sations we’ll ask other players to do the same).  So what was his choice?

So let’s have a Cover-Sation!
