  • Hmm…I like it. I don’t love it, but still, it’s not bad.

  • awesome thanks for finally hooking it up!

  • rainbows. who’d have thought?

  • good

  • greenplastic’s got the packshot if you want something more official like

  • wtf? that’s hideous. i thought they got rid of that one, and had been hoping it’d be something awesome like the stanley stuff from this summer
    :-\

  • This *is* the packshot…

  • sorry ade. i meant that they have the original high res packshot linked.

  • it looks like the one i already have, except more detailed

  • ok yea u have it linked too but it’s 404′d

  • i think it’s one of the worst covers of all time!

  • some of the hodiau direkton stuff was so much better. so were every other album’s cover

  • well sorry but that’s actualy not the final cover. You’ll see it’s just the cover for the 2nd vinyl, as you know they will also release the album as a 2 vynils edition, and altough the first vinyl’s got the actual cover they had to come up with another one to put something on the face of the second one. Oh and I’m totally shure bout that btw.

  • I don’t like it. It looks like an embryo.

  • Damn that is UGLY. I have a feeling though, that this isn’t the final artwork. I hope not anyway. But if it is, how disappointing!

  • @ foie-gras style: sorry, link fixed.
    @ jorge: this cover is from TBD records and will be used for the January release.

  • Beautiful!Beautiful!Beautiful!Beautiful! What an explosion in colors of Rainbows,Rainbows,Rainbows, and Rainbows.

  • well, screw all you guys, i love it. its violent and colorful and not at all stale (like i think HTTT was). fuck yeah, stanley.

  • “an embryo”.. hahaha..

    it’s ok, can’t beat HTTT though B)

  • The image is fine but the letters are too big of a statement, it goes against the music. I remember seeing the image on the scrapbook, but I’m not sure…

  • hm i kind of like the one i have better

  • mmm… don’t know if i like it or not. i dont like the text – too big…mmm…

  • looks like a fetus dropped from a height.

  • i love it. it’s something completely
    different and freah. I love how the
    colours really vibrate. didn’t
    stanley say something about toxicity in
    the colours. it’s interesting
    that some people are put off by it. anyway thumbs up from me.

  • [...] it now, in all of its colourful ooze-like glory from ateaseweb. Filed under: radiohead by Angus [...]

  • You guys are tripping.

    I think its one of the most beutiful things I’ve ever seen, and its definatly one of my favorite Stanely paintings.

  • Disappointing, something better for such a great album was needed.

  • It’s original, which is something I haven’t been able to say about Donwood’s Radiohead work for awhile. I like the typographical experimentation too.

  • it’s not a ‘painting’ it’s a creation. it’s very ‘pink floyd’..sort of stuff they did in there very early live shows.
    i like it. possibly wouldn’t have the repeating text though if it were up to me. doesn’t ruin it for me though.

  • I couldn’t understand some parts of this article nnial 2007 – salvatore iaconesi – del.icio.us poetry, but I guess I just need to check some more resources regarding this, because it sounds interesting.

  • Hmmm… it’s one of their second worst cover (PH being their worst)… now I want to see the ditched one…

  • … or maybe I misunderstood…

  • Hideous.

  • you are all crazy. this is probably the best radiohead cover!!!

  • bleh. it looks like a disco album. stanley, i love your previous work. wtf is this?

  • this isnt what i expected.
    i dont think it suites the album
    but whatever

    its still beautiful

  • DID SOMEONE NOTICE THE NUMBER TEN IN
    LAST “RAD IO HEAD”?

  • In the spirit of the album release, I thought Radiohead would have held a competition where fans could submit their own ideas and pick one for the cover. Other people’s ideas were much cooler than this…looks really unprofessional. I could have made this in paint – very ugly. Does anyone know why they keep spelling things witho_ut s_pace/s and weird c/ haracters? It looks like something my 16 year old friend’s sister used to do in her AOL profile picture to look cool.

  • i think its his best yet! bravo !

  • Claudia is it the number 10 really or
    just the syllabus io and spaces to the
    left and right? I like it to be honest.
    I don’t see a rainbow though. I see an
    explosion. That’s what I see. Or a
    bucket full of paint dropped over the
    canvas..

  • The picture in background is nice… But the Wway the text is wrote is just ugly. I feel likie in the 60′s with this kind of colors.
