    I've not seen this discussed before: The art work on III sucks pretty hard. I don't like the concept at all and it needed some color to it. I know that to a lot of people this is irrelevent but to me the art work needs to match the music. I can't see the Pink Floyd prism logo without thinking of the first few notes of Dark Side Of The Moon. Anyway that just my opinion.

    Al's been in charge of album artwork since way back when (when DLR was helping him). Blame Al.

    I had never heard that before. It begs the question -- WHY?
    VH's only good album cover since 5150 is "Best OF" and that was a no-brainer.
    The song ain't dirty
    It's really just the way we sing it

    I think the VH III cover is cool! My favorite shirt is my VH III shirt with the picture of the album cover on the front. Unfortunately it's getting a little worn out, from me wearing it all of the time.
    Right Now you're reading my post!

    Yeah, I agree. I love the picture of the guy getting shot with the cannon. I've seen that movie short before the album came out, and I thougth it was a good idea. The whole circus theme is wierd, but I don't mind it. My only problem is putting "VH III" on the cannon. It should have just been centered at the top-center of the cover.

    I liked the III artwork, too. I really liked the circus theme but it didn't really fit with the music, which was darker and not very party-friendly. I also agree that they coulda put the VH III somewhere else besides the cannon.

    Man, I sound like a suck-up.

    You didn't think Balance was a good cover, one of my favs. I also liked the 3 artwork.
