U2tour.de have a scan of the upcoming Best of’s sleeve.
So tell me why I should believe that this is the real cover, and not the work of some sly German graphic designer.
Sorry, but this looks really fake. I could be wrong, but the isn’t the font and the placement of the type the same as the cover of “best of 1980-1990”? Now, I could be wrong, but I just don’t see why U2 is going to repeat themselves lke that. I admit the picture is appropriate, given the video and story behind “One” but, it’s just too phony.
I have just got this cover from Universal directly, so no need to panic, it’s NO FAKE!
Of course the font and spacing will be the same as the 1980-1990 disc. The layout should be the same; this is part two of the Best Of set. It certainly looks real to me.
“So tell me why I should believe that this is the real cover.”
Well, perhaps because this comes from Didi at U2tour.de? A site we trust and respect.
Respect…respect…reinspect…respect…very interesting cover. but why white border?
i think they like having that picture associated with white, i have a white t-shirt that has that picture on it, that i bought from virgin a while back
sorry bad umaar, it isnt that picture, its the cover of the one single on the shirt, but yea its still the buffaloes
I don’t know, as i’ve heard it SILVER, but a scanner won’t show this….
I think the cover is great. very representative.
I don’t think U2 is repeating themselves. I think they are following a ‘line’ with their Best compilations. Thumbs Up for U2 and their Team =)) !!
My apologies to Didi. We Americans are to cynical for our own good sometimes. After thinking about it, it makes sense. I guess the white background looked a little phony, but if it is silver that will look spiffy.
I rarely disagree with anything that is U2-related, but I’m not sure about this one. Then again when it comes out I’ll love the hell out of it so go figure!
No prob. I really don’t know 100%, if it is silver, but it would make sense! We will c.
The image does look like it was done in photoshop (it’s not a scan), but I still think it is how the cover will look. I would say it’ll look just about like this but on a silver background (would go with the gold of the first 1980-1990).
That’s funny. Because this scan showed up on the interference.com forums yesterday.
Both of these pictures are NOT scans! A real scan would be ‘more ‘speckled’ with little pieces of dust or other small white dots (take a look at the scan of the ES promo single). The size of the picture is also ‘strange’ because it’s exactly 400 pixels wide. And I’m sure that a scan of the colour silver would at least be greyish and not white. All said, congratulations for the one who has done this job. It fooled me at first glance! And it’s a great picture.
I was just watching the video of ‘One’ with the buffalo before I came online & saw the cover…what are the odds of that?
if you are a betting man,mr.e.b.,then u2 is always a winning ticket…
Well this supports what I heard a week or so ago from a trusted source what the cover would be. (and that source has been right about most things in the last year. When things were rumours he denied or confirmed them before they were officially denied or confirmed.) My guess is, that this is a possible contender for the album cover. Not necessarily the final cover, but most definitely a possible one the U2 lads are mulling over..
I forgot to add that I like the cover of the buffalo butting heads, it’s rather representational of the conflicted nature of the band’s music from the decade. To answer Hero: I’m not a betting man…but I do have a weakness for belly dancers!
i like the butting heads,i like the cover of e.strom,i lke belly dancing,but I LOVE THE TANGO!!!here is to you mr. e.b. realthig.
sorry mr.e.b. i can dance,dance,dance…i can not spell,spell,spell…realthing realthing realtime
On the back cover of the One single is explained the meaning of the buffalos: great cover.
Just thinking that Corbjin, with so many photos of U2, does not have one to resume the 90
Speaking of Bono being taurean…Larry gets bull’s blood injections for his back….interesting!
gross use of blood
I WAS ON THE INSIDE WHEN THEY PULLED THE WHOLE WORLD DOWN I WAS CAST IN AMAZING GRACE,IWAS LOST BUT I AM FOUND…correct use of the blood.
I hope that all of the nay-sayers will apologize, now that they have seen that the pic is THE REAL THING!! “oh it’s a phony it’s a phony…” You all cry too much.
