Re: Ioannis about the cover


i agree. bananas was a great cover and title for an album. remember when they announced it everyone was up in arms! 50% loved it 50% hated it. that was great at least we were all talking about it, and don't forget it was also a statement. great stuff.

Re: Ioannis about the cover


The cover to Rapture Of The Deep looks extremely amateurish and zero-budget. It looks like a cheap mock-up done by a 15-year old design department trainee with his hands on Photoshop for the first time. Ugh.

Too bad, what a shame.

And why oh why change the logo all the time?

My download of the album in 320 kbp/s mp3 is now ready in 4 minuters 23 seconds, yummy!

Agreed! And why not the Ioannis do the whole job?? The rest of the artwork - done by him - looks really good. Cause the front is not by Ioannis..

The rest of the artwork is by Ioannis, and the cover itself isn't? So it's Roger that's to blame, then... I haven't seen anything besides the cover yet, but it truly sucks.

Photoshop drop shadows, brrr...

BTW, I thought the artwork for Bananas was good, especially the ltd editions and the promos.

Yes, read what Ioannis has to say about the work with the cover...

With the exception of NP, all DP covers since the reunion suck. The last really good one was Stormbringer.



Well, I like the cover of TBRO very much. It tells really what the band was about at that time: one dragon with two heads (Gillan & Blackmore) who held DP in it's grip.

This ROTD cover is like a typical "Nero Coverdesign" concept. And it does remind me of an album made by Rainbow, but worse. (BOOS)
