I think adore is worse. The vinyl in Mono.
Then the re-issue in stereo.
I’m not convinced altering artwork is ever necessary. Most times I can’t see the point of messing with something that already works. That said, they did a nice job with the Purple Rain reissue, making the white background platinum.
Michael Jackson - Off The Wall
2001 Special Edition:
I know these were on the back covers, but I still disliked them. Plus they completely preempted the real back covers in some cases. (LZ IV, HOTH)
Well it is
The 2-disc version of the deluxe Listen Without Prejudice. Ugh.
I actually think the new one's better.
Four was the worst cos they totally ruined the full picture.
I know what he was going for, but the All Things Must Pass remaster that George Harrison supervised had that horrible colorized front cover ... The original cover’s understated, elegant, black and white photo is infinitely superior and, more importantly, was a better representation of the music itself.
I don’t seem to be able to post pics at the moment, but the recent reissue of Delaney & Bonnie’s Motel Shot used a blah photo of the two rather than the original picture of the number on a motel room door.
Even worse was this one:
I like this one. Especially in the age of The Walking Dead!
Sony has gone back to the original cover art on both the vinyl and CD reissues.
My guess is that Michael changed the cover, for probably obvious reasons.
I assume this was Billy Corgan's idea. Love the music but hate the new covers. Orange Purple don't go down well with my old eyes.
I think that's just the slip cover.
also, it's an out-take from the inner LP gatefold spread.
Not that that makes it good mind you.
All of the Phil Collins 2016 solo album reissues.
As I have said elsewhere, the concept would have been cool had they used the "older" covers on a slip sleeve while retaining the original "younger" image on the digipak within.
I always thought the reissue was sad, kinda like he was shying away from how he used to look or something.
Off The Wall is a happy album, I wanna see MJ's big smiling face.
I'm on acid by the way so this may not make sense.
Well then, this is for you.
The Phil Collins album reissues. What was he thinking??? I saved my money.
First things I thought of, although these 2 are the least offensive imo
Textured would have been even better. Or.... sandpaper!
The colour version was actually the way the artwork was originally planned in 1975/6. Until someone discovered that the design is more in tune with the music if you ch-ch-change it to black and white. They actually produced proofs that are now extremely rare and go for crazy money.
I like both versions. The album sounds unique in mono.
Not a fan of the new Megadeth "Risk" cover. The original wasn't great, but it is the better of the two.
That xtc cover for the deluxe Skylarking is the pits.
And yeah I know it was Andy's original idea.
