Ok I've revisited the picture after a day to calm down and I actually like the concept. No I did not say I like the picture. I think if the picture were a little less of a stark contrast, it would look much better. It just is TOO deathly white and it makes my lovely Beatles look like ghouls. If they could just tone down the harsh whiteness of it, it might work.

Okay, and here's my two cents to add: It's certainly an improvement from the Possessed George cover, but I can't say I really love it. Personally I'd like to see some color added and a better view of George's face ( [img]graemlins/eyebrows.gif[/img] ) but hey, like roadie said, let's be happy we're getting the album in the first place! I suppose the cover could use some improvement, but hopefully the album is better than the cover. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

<font size="2" face="Tahoma, Arial, sans-serif">I totally agree with you! While I'm not crazy about the cover, I do think it's an interesting concept. It's a new twist to, as jtal909 said, all of the old pictures we've seen a million times. While perhaps it's not the greatest album cover of all time, it's definitly far from the worst.
Personally I'm just happy that we're getting this album in the first place (as roadie said). [img]graemlins/images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

It's not bad... But I don't get why they only changed George's pic and left the others the same, and then put them in negatives...

Now if they were all the same pics, but in negatives, it might make more sense to me...

Dunno... Something about it just rubs me the wrong way. But that's just my personal opinion.

I'd forgotten to check there.

As for the previous cover posted here, many of you believe it was an earlier version created by Apple. Um, it probably was not. So "they" didn't change anything.

Whoa, lookit, it doesn't come out for another six weeks and it's already #342 in Amazon sales! And crapy...no details on the 2nd disc. It shouldn't be that pricey either, darnit.

I think the cover concept is OK - speaking as a former graphic designer with some cover experience. The typography however, is awful. The negative images have some logic to them, George's pic has clearly been changed because it didn't work in negative form.

One point to consider though: record companies often release dummy sleeve images to the media in advance of release, that eventually bare no resemblance to the final artwork. Consider this: Anthology website is identical in design/concept to the CD/DVD/Video covers. 1 website closely resembles the 1 CD cover. See any resemblance between Let It Be... Naked and the website design? I wouldn't be suprised to see the cover more in tune with the site design when it surfaces.

By the way, any of you that haven't already pre-ordered it should consider this mail order site based in England:

http://www3.cd-wow.com/detail_result...duct_code=7497

The link will take you straight to the Let It Be... Naked page. The cost is 8.99, which is US$14.89 at todays exchange rate, with FREE delivery anywhere in the world. Delivery usually takes about 5 days.

Everyone else I personally enjoy this new cover, I think that the concept that they decided. But... I'm a bit iffy on the album concept. I thought the original Let it Be was exelent, with the exception of Long and Winding Road. I thought it was a great idea to keep all John's little adlibs, especialy with the one at the end of Get Back. I'm worried that some of this stuff might looses its beauty. For instance I trying to think how I Me Mine would sound half as long not as strong guitars, and without orchastrations. I think that Spector did the best job with this song and I'm not liking this idea don't fix what don't need fixing

I'm with you, Magill - I wonder if it's a subliminal thing? Do you suppose someone's really feeling negatively about this project?
