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…

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?

    I LOVE this cover. This is one of those covers that’s so simple, but seems to speak volumes. It’s also one of those covers that I look at and think: “Damn, why didn’t I come up with that cover?” I always wish this could have been an Eccentric Arcade cover, because of the use of the giraffe (EA’s inexplicable icon). I don’t actually own this album, but I always go back and forth on whether or not to get it just for the cover. It’s that good.

    Pragmatica is one of my favorite bands because they’re so original, and this elegant and quirky cover is a shining example of their originality.

    The cover is just one of those cases where the band found inspiration in a piece of art. There was some debate within the band whether or not to release this cover because of it’s association with Eccentric Arcade and their ever-present giraffe motif, but then they realized that the image transcended any one group of musicians. This was an image that sparked something within Pragmatica that was beyond “mine or yours”. After all, the cover depiction is an olive branch of sorts, merging themes and making peace with the Grace that is so often unattended in this world.
