The Information

Beck . The Information

This is the latest album from Beck, who is one of my favorite artists. I'm not gonna review the album or anything, other than to say its typical Beck in that you never know what to expect. He is, hands down, the most innovative artist in the music industry, and one of the most innovative in the world of art in general.

And I add that last phrase in there because the album artwork for this album is mind-blowingly innovative. The purchaser gets a blank slate -- okay, actually its glossy graph paper (like you used to use in math class) and a sheet of stickers. Yeah, I said stickers!! So the cover (above) is my handy work (I'm a minimalist), as well as the inside work below (with a little help from a friend on the art direction!).

You should tell Beck to have a contest to see who comes up with the best cover

wait, let me get this...

your cover art is going to be published on this CD for Beck?


i may have to buy the CD for that reason alone!

I wish.

Let me try this again.

Every CD comes w/ a blank cover insert and a sheet of stickers. As the new owner of the CD, you remove the stickers and place them on the blank insert -- creating your own artwork for the album.

So this album will go platinum (i.e. 1,000,000 sold) within the month and no two covers will be alike!!

Kinda like the stars...

Or a snowflake...

Or a human being.
