I couldn't care less what the cover art looks like ("none blacker").

What I care about is the music and if this one sounds like the last one I'm a-buyin' even if it has pink, fuzzy bunnies on the cover.

It looks like album art has been taken over by Red & Black the same way major studio movies have been taken over by Orange & Teal. I guess everyone in entertainment is color blind now.

Cover does nothing to me, hopefully the music would be better

The cover art is decent, but it looks like it was done by someone with Photoshop, not an actual artist. I could do an album cover just like that in 20 minutes.

Is anyone here basing their decision on whether or not to buy this album on the cover art?  I doubt it. 

It cracks me up when people get hung up on album art for established bands.  I understand how getting the cover art right is uber-important for a new band but for a band like WASP?  I seriously doubt anyone is thinking "Gee, I was gonna buy that album but that new album art sucks."

It could be the proverbial Spinal Tap "Black" album cover art and I'd still check it out because I really loved the last WASP album.  But that's just me...

In my case I have nothing to contribute to this topic aside from critiquing the color palette used in the artwork. Razz

Obviously not. As mentioned in all previous posts.

I had no idea Babylon had become so rare and high-priced. Sure glad I got it when I did. I feel for you guys who don't have it...but I'm in the same boat with many, many other CDs that I don't have.

It was a $25 import in the States when it was released. Should have jumped on it back then, but thought at some point it would see some domestic distro.

I know I didn't pay $25 for it.  I got it from Amazon and it may have been something like $17

I got Babylon for $9 from Newbury comics. However, at some point in CD purging over the past 5 years I sold my whole WASP collection on eBay. I know it did not sell for the prices people are trying to charge on ebay and Amazon for it now.

I'd be curious how much a copy would sell for if someone started an auction at $2 and let people bid on it. That's the only way to tell what it's "worth." Also, the lone seller on Amazon that has a vinyl copy is trying to sell it for $1,000. I'd really like to see them find someone willing to pay that much for it.

I actually got curious so I dug up my Amazon order history from 2009 and I paid 11.99 for Babylon from ImportCDs' z-shop.

Cool news about Dominator and Babylon being re-ished, thanx for the tip.

I got lucky when Babylon was still a new release - I managed to snag it when my local F.Y.E. was having their going-out-of-biz fire sale, but I've never even seen a real live copy of Dominator, I only have a CD-R.

I have both Babylon and Dominator. I don't remember where I got them.

It's cool that they're getting reissued and $19.99 for the vinyl versions is a great price.

I have Babylon. No idea where I got it. Don't have Dominator, though, so I'll snag that.

I had been on the lookout for both Dominator and Babylon for quite awhile. Somehow I found both used within a couple of weeks apart and paid $7 for one, $8 for the other.

I liked babylon and look forward to hearing what this sounds like.

As to the cover discussion, it's not bad, it's not great. As someone that has done my share of covers, and picked apart ones at that, I will say that the biggest problem is a lack of money in the budget for artwork. I myself miss the days of the cool painted artwork, that you couldn't wait to get a t-shirt of to proudly wear.

I think it is interesting that Blackie Lawless and Alice Cooper at this point in their career, both profess their Christianity. I believe they are both sincere, and lyrically their albums tend to say their point of view, in terms of Christianity with bashing you over the head with the message.
