Makes me wanna play Tekken 4, personally... oh, now I notice the sitters around her. Now I feel like Indian[-inspired] music, circa 1970

I do like the cover a lot. The first impression was so shitty, but, the more i look, the more i think it's all done in porpouse. She tried to stay out from the conventional covers of Sympho. I like it.

I can't even find the words to describe this... I'm curious about the music, but the cover looks like it was thought up by a 14-year old on shrooms

Awesome cover. Got tired of the same old gothic crap years ago.

The cover... it seems it has something to say,
although I don't like Tarja previous records... even a bit.

Wasn't expecting a album cover like that, really don't know what to think. Quite interesting to say that least.

It kind of looks like the cover painting of some prog band from the 70´s. I don´t like it. I hope the music is better than the album cover. :-)

Does anyone know it there´s any samples available yet?

My eyes... they hurt. Now that I read the comments... it's true it's a good idea to step away from the stereotype and I have no problem with the "concept" of the cover, but it's still disgusting.

Love her and her music but OH DEAR that's an awful cover. Perhaps this may have worked as an interior photo in the booklet but the cover? No...

I agree with the others, this cover is ridiculous

I have a feeling this is one of those covers that would make more sense if you were high.

Seriously, this cover makes me think of the Beatles film "Yellow Submarine" for some reason...

Has Tarja been listening to Pink Floyds 'The Wall' when being high or something.... The cover art is most certainly remarkable, but likeable. Now I'm getting curious about the music on it!!!

Not a fan of the artwork (looks like a super amateur photoshop product) but super curious about the music *fangirling*

Not really works as a good cover. Too much space above Tarja and very lousy work. Fill the space in the left and the right top corners, maybe it will work that way, but not exactly the color scheme what I would use. Red and such vivid colors work must be used carefully with definition and preciosity. This is too much.

Wouldn't be so shitty, if they would fill up the gaps. The art work isn't so bad.

But this is my few cents as a graphic designer.

More interested in the music.
