i dont know though, it looks like the typical buckingham album cover.
compare this one to Law and Order or Out of the Cradle. Almost identical concepts and style. Buckingham has never had an album cover that didnt have a head shot or at least a full shot of himself on it. Same with Stevie, the album covers remain the same throughout!

Maybe there will be some better pictures in the linear notes. He might look depressed (or like he's taking a dump) on the outside, but within there may be a treasure trove of jolly Lindsey frolicking through a field of flowers with his guitar and whatnot, or possibly a nice color photo collage with him wearing every color t-shirt other than white and black. You never know, but negative we should not be.

As for his connections: much as I think Kristen is lovely and all that...she's not exactly Linda McCartney, from what I've observed of her repertoire. But to each his own.

Maybe he always looks hung over and she doesn't have anything to work with. Photoshop can only work so many miracles.

Actually, this photo looks like a frame from one of Lindsey's do-it-yourself videos. Kristen might have taken rolls of gorgeous photos of him and he decided that this shot best represents his inner demons.

I wonder what kind of videos we're going to get for the new album! I'm sure he making some as we speak.

I agree. Looks like he's on the toilet.

A friend of mine sent me this:
Came across this quote, which seems relevant to the Gift of Screws cover art:

"Now, I am a Catholic, and my Church teaches that 'despair' is a sin (since it involves the abandonment of hope in eternity). So I opt instead for 'desolation,' which is not a sin, merely a psycholigcal response to everything around one being in an advanced state of disintegration."

This new pic reminds me of this pic taken during the Tusk days. I don't know why Lindsey is always trying to be all artsy all the time. I'm sorry, but seeing pictures of Lindsey sitting on the floor in front of a bed with his eyes closed or seeing him without shoes on is not artsy or original.

You're not! I like it too. Who says that the cover has to be a "pretty" picture?

I LOVE the cover pic!!

To put it in simpler terms, I guess, than those my friend provided/discovered. . . I would say that Lindsey looks like how I look when I'm watching the news or reality television.

Agreed. I dig the cover too. It has that homegrown, rough feel to it, akin to a home demo. He seems to enjoy that vibe.

I actually find the disdain for the cover to be pretty funny, in fact.

Or is it his tribute to the out of focus cover of Blonde On Blonde?!~?~!?
