Title: EOTW Album Art Critiques / Interpretations
Post by: Fallout on September 28, 2010, 04:10:17 pm
(http://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc4/hs668.snc4/60814_424151976886_7426896886_5486858_6011237_n.jpg)

Since rob is a very deep and thoughtful individual, and there is so much meaning behind every song and piece of art he does. He does include hidden messages and meanings into certain pieces: such as Overworld's album art - the Trinity stamp on her face has a RFID number underneath it; and the mentions of "a chip beneath my skin, ready to be scanned" in TOT, clearly shows the band's aversion to the RFID chipping "big brother" attitude of some corporations and governments.

I think there is some meaning behind this album art and possibly linked to the song "A View From The End Of The World."

First off, I don't think it's just a strange choice of tattoo that the girl has stars on her face. I also don't think it's a coincidence that those stars are within the top left hand corner of her face, nor is it a coincidence I believe that there is a combination of red and blue around her eyes. The worried "doe-eyed" look on the girl's face, lips parted, mascara running, mimics the look of someone lost and scared. Also notice the band-aid on her left cheek. She is beaten, battered, lost, hopeless and alone. She's "caught in the headlights" (notice the bright lighting on her face compared to her body) of her own impending doom, and all she can do is watch.

The girl is America. The stars and the blue and red colours represent the American flag, the album title echoes the fact that America often sees themselves as "the world", the bandaid and scar on her chin represents the state she is already in, and the facial expression and composition of the lights and darks in the picture represent the 18 wheeler that's just about to run her down.

lol, every American cringed when they read that.  ;D

Man fallout, I'm really impressed. You pulled an L (sneaking in a death note reference there since I finally finished watching it the other night).

All I can really say is...  "Are you one of the marching undead, or do you deviate like me?"

Awesome art per usual, I've come to expect nothing less. Man am I excited.

I like the album art, though I would've liked it better without the stars.

Is there a high-res available anywhere? I checked Deviantart, nog there.

Also, good and plausible interpretation, Fallout.

Maybe the stars are related to the belgian girl who had tattooed 56 stars or something on her face.

Off-topic but, I thought Wonder Woman was the female version of Superman? Whereas Captain America doesn't have a female counterpart. Anyway, not like I know or care anyway.

[Wonder Woman Was]... "Created during World War II, the character was initially depicted fighting the Axis military forces, as well as an assortment of supervillains."

Wonder Woman is definitely the female Captain America IMO, given she is around in the same era as well as sporting the stars and stripes.

Further off topic: She was created to state that women could do something beneficial in war time, that it wasn't all men doing everything useful.

Back on topic:
I'm running with Fallout's interpretation and adding to it. I think the stars are black to symbolize that America is dead in the future, that the random US Citizen 080213 is scarred and frightened because she's been living in this bubble for her whole life and it just popped...

the Trinity stamp on her face has a RFID number underneath it.
Am I the only one who noticed that the number is actually the date the album released? :V

Post by: Shalinar on October 08, 2010, 06:12:30 am
So this isn't really a critique or an interpretation, but I noticed something:

The face of the cyberchick on Deus Ex Machinae (2nd edition) faced upward, the cyberchick on Redeemer faced to the right, the cyberchick on Overworld faced to the left, and now this new cyberchick on A View From The End Of The World faces straight forward.

What's the next album going to feature, a cyberchick facing away from the viewer??

Which is still cool, tho.  ;)

Mario master, just find the official version already. Use this equation:
x = m + k, where m = Machinae Supremacy and k = the Kode...
That way, you won't have to rely on seeders, plus you get more bang for you buck.

Whoops. Moved the files out instead of copying. I'm seeding again. I'll even leave my netbook on all night for you people.

OT: The alternate cover art is definitely cool, but your chick covers are too good to stop the trend.

Also, I think the human with the "deer in the headlights" stare of fear is a good fit for the album (thus far).

Mario master, just find the official version already. Use this equation:
x = m + k, where m = Machinae Supremacy and k = the Kode...
That way, you won't have to rely on seeders, plus you get more bang for you buck.
Don't know what you mean anyways getting all cd's besides retail redeemer for my birthday \m/..^_^..\m/

Why no Redeemer Retail? It's awesome?

While you should own it, I prefer undergrounds mastering. :)
Ghost is fkn awesome tho.

That is what I meant. While RUE is better than RRE, the fact it has a different tracklisting is enough to make you want it...

I like both. To me, I count them as different songs, and both albums have a place on my iPod.

Spinefarm mixing greatly emphasized the bass lines, which can be quite hard to hear in some of the older MaSu songs, unless your audio output devices have really good bass response. Yes, they numbed the SiD down initially, but keep in mind how the songs from his album sound, with their SiD and other synth, on Spinefarm mixing.

Anyone new to a concept will invariably take time to appreciate it properly.

Not that it's not awesome, but the underground edition has more songs and retail edition only has one song (ghost) that isn't in the underground edition. I'll probably get it and a shirt and/or sweater later on because I love this band but I at least want to get Deus Ex Machinae, Redeemer Underground Edition, Overworld, and A View From the End of the World cds.

I actually only own Overworld and Redeemer Retail atm (I know, shock horror!) but I will get EotW as soon as, and Deus Ex and RUE after that, when I can afford it. Then I will buy hoodies and T-Shirts etc.
All in good time, but first, we must get back on topic!

Yeah. I've got the DXM second printing, RUE, RRE, Overworld, and EotW in the mail. And both JnG sound tracks. Plus almost all the web tracks, including certain ones we don't discuss openly.

Both? As in, the original and the JnG Gold?

Aye. They are technically separate, particularly since, until the EFP, one had to obtain the Gold ones either by purchasing the expansion of the game, or trolling pirate waters. I'm in the former camp, of course. JnG is a kickass game for a 2D sidescroller.

To band: Since the flac version of J'n'G OST is gone, I can provide ogg files, if that satisfies you.  :P And, of course, if you don't have these as well.
Not the same, but still something.
