Personally speaking, I like the cover a lot, though I am very much skeptical of a Pumpkins reunion album on the whole. It's got a Planet of the Apes (Heston's version, not Tim Burton's dubious remake) meets USSR propaganda feel to it. The statue of liberty drowning is very creepy and definitely evocative of our current political and social climate. Or, to put it using the parlance of our times, it's Zeitgeist-tastic.

And yes, I should have posted an mp3 of "Drown," but alas, I could not find one.

Though it feels traitorious, I agree completely. My first reaction to yet another Pumpkins come-back album was "Again? Really? Well, ok..." I think there's something to be said to leaving the people wanting more. I guess all we can do is hope for the best.
