Your idea for an alternate TND cover would have been such an improvement!

This album was such a welcome comeback at the time, and while critics seemed to downgrade it once Blackstar came around (after giving it the usual "best since Scary Monsters!" praise at the time), I think it holds up well. Like almost all DB albums post-Tin Machine, it would have benefited by relegating a few of the weaker songs to b-sides or the follow-up EXTRA release, but it's filled with some great writing and performances. That cover, though...
