Re: Make your own cover to Rapture


It´s much better than the original ! more because of the fonts than for the colors ! I really don´t mind the grey look of the cover, it´s just the kind of fonts they are using that i don´t like very much ! but i still like the cover anyway !

Yes, I think this cover is a good one. I actually sent it to both Gillan and Glover emoticon

I am still really shocked about the real cover. The drawing is ok. I like that. But the layout is so bad and amateurish, I can't understand how the 'band democracy' accepted it..

The cartoon of the cover used to be coloured.
Roger put it in B/W, the band approved that version and decided that this would have been the cover for ROTD.
A previous idea was about a japanese man with a fish in his mouth.

Thanks @all, glad you like it emoticon

I really like the original Idea of the cover, but it isn't done very good I think. No offense to the Band members, but when I look at a picture and think I could do it better myself, I think I have to post my oppinion on it. There are way to much covers on the latest Albums of my favourite Bands, that I think I could have done better (*cough*Octavarium*Cough*).

But with Deep Purple its different, I believe they will do it right. I also thought the Bananas Cover was bad at first, but in the context within the whole artwork it really fits.

Am I the only person who thinks the new cover looks great? Very unusual looking and will definitely stand out in the record store racks

This cover should really be redone in black and white, since that is what the band wants, and used - instead of the actual cover...
