Niklas why don't you reveal the real meaning of your coverart?
or maybe will you do that after the whole album is out?

come on, let's at least wait until the album is out and you have seen the whole package. then i might be persuaded to write a line or two about what i had in mind - but doing so now would be pretty pointless.

The only thing that gets me about art is the ambiguity, its ok when you can make your own reading of it because the art becomes interactive, but it's hell when it seems so profound and you cant make anything of it what so ever.

i totally agree but then sometimes there's a very big dualism into it: if i like art cos it gives me emotion(s) (as it is for me) then why i'm always interested in the artist's point of view?

You're forgiven

Im glad you agree. Some art just looks so cool though, present subject included. I can just starte at it and think, 'god damn that rules' and I dont worry about what message it conveys because the badassness out weighs the need to realise the artist's preferred reading.

again i totally agree cos that's what i mean for ART.
that's why -for instance- i don't like super guitar-heroes or musicians who care too much about the technical side of music

I like the cover, but from Niklas I've come to expect only great things
but I have problems with the titles... as on the last couple of albums, I guess... "Am I 1"??? R U gonna rap? Yo bro!

i'm not fond of "am i 1?" either, but it's got more of an internet forum feeling than a rap feeling to it, imo.

mmm... maybe you're right Rahvin...
I think the titles are quite in line with those of the last albums (since Projector, I'd say) more direct and modern-sounding, and I don't like them very much... not the meaning in itself, but the sound... you know, I think that something like "Dreamlore Degenerate" is waaaaaaay cooler

Neo??? do you mean that Mikeal is the One and he'll free humanity from the machines? Or that "Character" is a concept based on The Matrix? I hope it won't be so messy and confused!

The cover looks quite futuristic. To be honest, it looks exactly like Matrix Revolutions



Hopefully it doesnt sound like it looks

Maybe they'll do a little rapping on the new album...

Anyways, I'll definately be gtting this. I've been a Dark Tranquillity fan for a long, long time now, and they never fail to impress me.
