Changing the cover art is strange, since it was issued a few years back by MH with the original artworkThe new cover art is very beautiful but so was the old one. I can’t fathom they’d change the cover though just to match the vinyl color.
Maybe if the original cover assets were lost, but VMP has done scans to recreate original covers before (complete with ring wear oops) and like I said, there was a reissue of this album 5 years ago with the original cover.
I’m not criticizing the it, I’m more curious. It’s a pretty drastic change, I would have figured something would have been said but transparency and VMP is like oil and water.
