Album Cover of the Week, Music
It probably doesn't need to be said, but I'll say it anyway -- I cannot wait until September 18th. For that's the day we get the first new Ben Folds Five album since 1999, The Sound of the Life of the Mind. Here is the snazzy album cover: The rather mysterious but comical artwork on the cover is a piece called "Submerged" by artist Eric Joyner. Joyner's work, which apparently focuses a lot on doughnuts and robots, features only the former here. It's also reminiscent of the famous Auguste Rodin sculpture The Thinker (Le Penseur). I'll likely be reviewing the album, either for this site or Popdose, so keep your eyes peeled!
