I'm not a big fan of the fake scary face thing. Welcome 2 My Nightmare had the same thing. I don't know - it's kind of unconvincing at this point, as well as cartoonish. It's also kind of cliche'.

An artistic black and white photo of Alice in an empty house could have worked better with the paranormal theme. No photoshop. No need to overcook something just because you have the tools to do so.

I think the cover would have looked better if there had been a glitch between the two heads. Like they two different dimensions of Alice in the same place glitching together rather than a single two-headed Alice. Otherwise I dont mind it. I quite like the whiteness of it, makes it stand out.

Here's an alternate cover. My guess is that they just may have been considering this, but the white one came in first. Now that I've gotten to know the record, I wouldn't change a thing.

That'd be awesome. I still hate that childish splatter logo.

Alice looks constipated on that one.

Yeah, but on the cover they used - the AC head on the right appears to be larger then the head on the left. Swollen. Like he's been stung by bees or something.

From the "Pitkin accuses Alice of lying and Alicefan calls a yet to be determined individual (or individuals) a child" thread, comes this album cover worthy photo. Looks like the back cover of some 60's record.

Alice looking up at what appears to be a Fireball.

Almost Ingrid Pitt-like from the old Famous Monsters of Filmland magazines/Hammer films shots.

He also looks relieved after ridding himself of his constipation in the gift shop restroom!
