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…

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.

    I miss FA so much, it hurts. The cover is genius, but I’ve always wanted to know what was going on with the people. Like, what are they doing?

    Their logo was memorable, their covers were extremely interesting, and each release just radiated class. I’m with you, Tyman. I miss this band.

    Think I’ll take a quick stroll down memory lane now…

    Fait always had such great covers, and this is one of their best. The juxtaposition of the flames and the aghast people just really strikes a chord. “Malevolence” is also one of Fait’s best albums; “Puppet String Snap” remains one of my favorite Fait tracks. It saddens me that the band has been M.I.A. for so long now, especially after the masterpiece that is “Infinitum”. Hopefully they’ll make a triumphant return soon.

    The artwork reminds me of the classic late 80’s covers from labels like Nettwerk and 4AD. Very nice.
