I don't want to see a band photo on the cover. I already know what they look like.

Yeah but a photo of the band would portray them in a specific way. It's not necessarily a bad thing to have the band in the photo. I think they will be in it, with an impressive vista behind them. Maybe I'm just thinking of the Joshua Tree cover subconsciously - I need some sleep now I think.

I think the picture of them in Morocco with Fez right behind them would be an amazing cover.  ;) Breathtaking scenery.

Naked chicks?  Really, if anybody's going to be naked, it had beter be the band.  BTW, what does "lenticular" mean?

Adams done it already!

I like it: simple but elegant; straight to the point and gives a spiritual vibe - very U2  :)

It reminds of me of the cover of Pink Floyd's Dark Side of The Moon  :D

So they could then run a big red "x" through it, la Adam in his Achtung Baby photos.  ;)

It's just the muti-colored light against a solid black background reminded me of the refracted light against the black background on the Dark Side of The Moon cover.....

I think it could be something like the four of them sitting on a bench by the ocean at sundown and the ocean is so clear you can literally see no line on the horizon.

I think the cover should show Bono as a traveling salesman at the door of the flat that the other three share as he tries to sell them cosmetics from Avon.

They can always do a photo of U2 semi- naked on beach chairs watching the horizon :P

No more pictures of the band seated!

I like the curvature of the Earth photo, that would be a simple design.

Also I think the shot of the band against that awesome Fez backdrop (I think it's Fez, it might be some other city) would be interesting as the cover. It is a beautiful landscape.

The title does seem to negate certain images (a horizon line, like the Earth shot) so I think they're gonna have to be more creative this time out. I do want to see something different than either Bomb or ... Leave Behind (to avoid acronyms!).

Is this the picture they're showing on Amazon for the album?
While I am anti-having photo of them on cover again, I think that would make a cool cover. :-\

I think the picture they have on Amazon looks too similar to the Joshua Tree cover...I mean, I know they're both different, but they have similarities
