Genuinely love the artwork. That one of the woman on the ice is pretty creepy.

I'm looking at the images on the Catrine Val website and, honestly, not a single one of them feels like it would make a good album cover to me.

However, doing a quick Google search for Catrine Val's other photographic work, I came across the following image that I really quite like, so I did a mock-up in Photoshop:

Quite like the cover, even if from first glance you're tricked into thinking the woman is floating.

Judging by the tracklist I'd be very interested in especially hearing what Mayakovsky has in store.

Based on the four songs we've heard, I think Futurology will be a damn fine album.

I concur, looks like we are in for one hell of a diverse album, sound-wise.

No it's not, it's naff; the one we really get is beautiful. And that's why random fans with photoshop don't get to design album covers for bands.
But really, that original white one is clinical, serene, nice and lifebloody and goes well with RTF, and that meat counter one was pretty good too, very DDR.

Also, since that iTunes tracklist is haunted by the iTunes ghost of NOT WORKING ON ANYTHING, perhaps someone can plaster the titles here?

Oh look the Manics have put the lead single second on the album track listing, that's a totally unique and novel idea which they've never.....oh....right......nevermind....
