    Man, this is so good. I like the original cover of this album - which is one of my favorite albums of all time, BTW - but this one almost seems better suited. I think it captures the melancholy/majesty* of the music, and some of the faded glory that a lot of the songs refer to. Well done.

    Also, in case anyone cares, the statue in the picture is a replica of the one that graced the entrance to the 1893 Columbian Exposition in Chicago, which is referenced on the album (Track 3). It was erected in 1918 in Jackson Park to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the exposition.
