Collector's edition (CD + DVD + 48-page booklet): $35.99

Here's the cover for the collector's edition:

Looks like I'll be getting the deluxe edition. I don't really need the booklet.

It's simplistic, but I like it.

If you think that is bad, wait until that cunt Billy Corgan releases his solo album. I'm sure it will include a dvd of him reading his poetry to 14 year old girls. + an 8 x 10 b&w glossy of his mug.

pop and october both have better covers. this one looks like they wanted to acheive the 'look' that most people associate them with. i think october was more about the background than the band members in front, and pop was remiscent of the andy warhol mass printing era of art, which i believe compliements the music on the album. this cover just makes me think, 'hey, it's a cd about u2'. it detracts from the title and the overall feel that i'm sure the album'll have.

I think it'd be cool if he put a picture of his anus on the cover and called the album "Lick It!"

And I don't agree. But does this cover look generic? Yeah, but what does everyone expect?

If he does that, it'll sell more copies than Slippery When Wet!

The DVD contents are listed on the collector's edition.

1. Making Of The Album
2. B Roll In Studio (whatever that is)
3. 4 Acoustic Songs

The DVD will come with the deluxe edition as well, which will be cheaper than the collector's edition.
