    Ugh this is my favorite band, I try so hard to love everything they do...... but that artwork is so cringy.

    Unfortunate about the pushback, but I'm not unfortunately surprised. Love this band, but I'll believe new record release dates when they're in my library.

    Someone mind describing what's so cringy about the album art?

    Agreeeeed :up:

    that being said, in the Notes On a Conditional Form thread there's some good traction on supporting a name change to Boot World. So that's something.

    I loved this band but I truly believe they're going to ruin their legacy and this album will be a disappointment like LP 3.

    You think LP 3 (A Brief Inquiry) was a disappointment? Assuming you mean "ruin their legacy" to you personally right?

    I guess they’re being deliberate with the risk taking

    I believe their album sales and future fan base will be impacted. I hope I'm wrong as I love the first 2 records and their live show.

    i feel like brief inquiry is objectively a massive success... no?

    Might be Spider-Man...

    I could see why the changed the original cover, it was very formulaic for this current music climate, but, you can do better than this 1975.

    Well. That is unexpected. Emojis on a Conditional Form? I mean I’m in as long the music stays as great as the singles have been, but I loooooved the old chaotic art

    Could that just be for the digital version?

    They fixed your brain when you were young.

    In light of the art, what are some of everyone's favorite sounding records that look really bad from an artwork standpoint?

    I grew up on Pen & Pixel artwork on hip hop albums, so bad artwork doesn't faze me.

    In an Instagram Live video the other day, Matty said the album was just finished and was just turned in. He went on to say turnaround for vinyl and pressing of everything is 3 months, hence why the new April date. So I think this one should actually stick!

    Oh man. I love Anthony Green's Avalon but that artwork looks like it was made in MS paint. Luv Is Rage 2 could've had good artwork but the final product is a mess imo and it's one of my favorite albums of the last five years. Thursday make great albums but some questionable artwork choices. Tbh though I dislike this 1975 cover more than any of the album covers I've mentioned. Combined.

    yeah I'm a bit confused by this whole idea. Ruin their legacy... based on the artwork? Or the 3 singles we've heard?

    I have to admit Brief Inquiry is probably my least favorite of the 3, but I still like it. And it was generally received very well.
