Staring at Sound

I was *SO* looking forward to seeing what this cover would look like. Let me get on my music soapbox for a minute and say that if you haven't been to a Flaming Lips show, you really really need to go. Even if you fill your ears with putty and don't hear a thing, the Lips are a sight to behold. Hence my disappointment with this cover. One of the most visually interesting bands I've ever seen in my life deserve something better than this merely serviceable cover.

(BTW: Jim DeRogatis is a pretty fantastic writer, and his "Let It Blurt" is a great read.)

They should have featured one of Wayne's mind-blowing paintings.
