And remember, I can manipulate any votes I don't consider appropiate!
So it will save time for you and me if you pick the right choice right from the start.
Which means: Vote YES!  ;D

I've voted no. 
If Carlsberg did CD covers, they wouldn't look like this one.
It doesn't look very 'punk', it's just a crap picture.  It's like they had one minute to come up with a cover, so they opened google images and typed in 'rubbish owl picture' and chose say the 8th result. 
Oh I just did exactly that and see what I found....look familar????

You missed the key voting point out Fred.

What TV is looking for is a reaction and that is what he is getting.

It is indifference he doesn't want not the criticism. Criticism is a stong reaction. He is more bothered that we like or hate it than if we feel indifference.

So in that respect TV has got this album cover spot on.

I recall he was thinking on similar lines with the original burning budha idea for Cast Of Thousands.

Just thinking out loud but maybe some of the clues as to why had taken this approach, after the very safe bet of the last album cover, lie within the words to In The ARMS OF MY ENEMY.

So in just starting this poll Fred you have given TV exactly what he wants.

...Now we really know why he played those 17 songs for you at Mansfield.  ;D ;D ;D
