Jake Bannon does some amazing art. The booklet I got with the Jane Doe vinyl has some gorgeous pieces in it.

Semi-long story behind the last one, but that's an important album cover.

I love these 3, I was going to post War with the Mystics.

I'm not as big into music as most of you guys, but this is just going through my iTunes:

I'm kinda picky about my album art, if there are different covers, I'll pick the one I like better and if I don't like it, I'll find a related image I like (usually with game OSTs)















For all my Katamari music, I just put it under one album and gave the We <3 Katamari cover:





(I have these two, they're amazing covers)







I'll leave you all with your better tastes in music...

story??? *grabs popcorn*

Mariko Goto, singer/guitar player for Midori. Well known for being an absolute psychopath on stage, assaulting audience members, smashing her mic against her forehead, climbing on drums/amps/etc. Always wore a schoolgirl outfit on stage and in videos as an ironic "fuck you" sort of statement. Always hid her face from cameras, saying she was embarrassed to be photographed. In all their videos her eyes/face were blacked out, and all the album covers/booklets had her face scratched out in all the band photos. Unless you lived in Japan and had been to see them live, nobody had ever really laid eyes on this chick, and if you had, she was always in the trademark schoolgirl uniform.

So the new album, Shinseikai (trans: new world) is announced, with talk that the band had matured and she'd calmed down a bit, hence the title. Lo and behold, album comes out and for the first time ever, there's Mariko, closeup of her face, in her everyday clothes. As a Midori fan, mind=blown.

Wait;what? O.o

RE: BMTH Suicide Season: Didn't like the album cover, but one of the singles had an awesome cover, I think. Can't quite remember. It was similar (obviously) but I remember really liking it.






If I ever get a tattoo, it's going to be the Ire Works pyramid. <3
