What the fuck?



Is this some kind of temporary or promo-only cover or something?

Looks like a high street own brand 'urban' clothing range from 1991.

Unexpected career move from Martin Freeman, recording an album of lounge standards with his stunt double.

Freeman looks well pissed off that the other bloke turned up in the same outfit. "You said you were wearing the stripes"

Was reordering my records alphabetically (as you do), and I have this one pointing at me now. It’s just occurred to me that it is awful.



Actually, as much as I love them (mid ‘00s indie kid that I am), a lot of Arcade Fire’s album covers are complete shit.

Amusingly that Madonna cover appears to have changed now. I can only assume that’s because of the graphic nature of it and not because it was total fucking shit, because the replacement is also total fucking shit, albeit a little more tasteful.

Oh, there are multiple versions of the cover. The standard version has the nasty original cover, the 15 track deluxe edition has that one, the 2CD super-deluxe and cassette versions have this:

The music's worse then the cover, unfortunately.

Loved his music for nearly 25 years but this sounded pretty shabby on first listen unfortunately. I'm not after an album of Cold Blooded Old Times or Held but the new one just didn't grab me at all.

Apocalypse didn't grab me at all for several listens. Now I love it to bits. Hopefully this one's a grower too.

Looking into this a little deeper, the artist was one Elizabeth Kimball de Albuquerque Poor.

'Kim was married for 26 years (1981-2007) to British musician Steve Hackett.'
