I really like it. I would be interested in knowing where the picture was taken.

I don't think this "editorial review" was up when I first posted the album artwork. It mentions a few song titles - "Tiger in a Burning Tree" and "Promenade" are new titles to me.

"Multi-Platinum band Everclear return with their eight new album, and their first in six years, Invisible Stars. Frontman Art Alexakis says Invisible Stars is a record that wanted to be made, as opposed to a record that I wanted to make. This is a collection of songs that wouldn't leave me alone. They are full of melody, big guitars, sarcasm, humor and a firm eye on the light at the end of the tunnel, walking the line between sounding like a classic Everclear album of the late 1990's and a contemporary rock record. This is a record I have been waiting to make my whole life. The album boasts 12 exciting new tracks, from album opener Tiger In A Burning tree, to Be Careful What You Ask For to Santa Ana Wind through to the end with Promenade. Invisible Stars is a thematic collection of songs from the perspective of someone who has ridden the rollercoaster, and has got back in line. Everclear, like its charismatic front man, has grown up a bit, and at the same time, Everclear (again, like Art) refuses to grow up and play nice."

This is the best album cover they've had IMO.

Holy cow! This write up has me really excited. I mean, so does the single, the artwork, the tour and hearing from Freddy, but this write up is really good. Go, Art!

I agree the art work is cool, but the write up really psyched me up for this even more. Hoping that somewhere in those 12 tracks is Almost Instant Karma too.

I agree, probably the coolest EC album cover aside from SMFTA which I have always thought was neat.

That's a pretty dark interpretation, but I can see it too. Still I think that they are jumping and not hanging themselves.

In general I really like this cover. It could be their best.
