    The album art doesn't really tell you anything and it doesn't fit atmospheric black metal at all.
    The album is really good though.

    It looks like some boring trance or cybergoth or something

    I go back and forth with this, but settle that this album art is a terd.

    Edited:



    If Stevie could see, he'd slap whoever did this to one of his best, most creative albums. As you can see, the artwork is embossed so at least he could "feel" the art with his hands... but that's not really seeing what it actually is at all.

    Self explanatory. Music isn't that great but really, who does this stuff?

    Also, it kinda looks like he's holding a chicken drumstick.

    Well that would imply that the music is ugly, which is not (at least for me it isn't).

    when you look at that you immediately think "ugly"?

    It's two fingers dipped into a sludgy, custard thing.

    Badass.

    The album is one of the masterpieces of rock music
    The cover is just three of them, Wetton with his handsome ball-chin, Bruford being normal, and Fripp trying as hard as he can to stare into your soul, like always. Their other albums always had very original and interesting cover artwork.

    I think that any album art profiling the band is poor. That's just my opinion but honestly. And especially in the case of deathcore covers where they're actually posing trying to look cool and shit.

    They probably could have made that look nice if it wasn't for the atrocious text.

    You have the liner notes (or in modern cases, media such as the internet) to establish what the band looks like. The front cover can help define the album. I know you shouldn't judge a book by its cover but a good cover can intrigue me to listen to the album. Three men in black and white doesn't tell me much.

    Yeah but you do know King Crimson make badass music right?

    There's more than just "the cover" to make you listen to it, people talk shitloads about it.

    No point going in depth in it here because the end results in us both winning.

    true, but there is a humour to why the band decided to change their style and go for the photo of themselves. I think they finally had the confidence to go "this is what we are", it shows in the music.

       Ignoring the fact that the album cover is satire, thus made bad on purpose...   

    music > album art

    Even though the music is really explosive and insane electroclash, this cover is just bizarre to look at while hearing the music.

    I dunno maybe it perfectly fits, but that's just me.
