I'm not going to pick it apart too drasticly, but I'll point out a few things. It's obviously a depiction of London's skyline in a not-too-distant future, recognizable and yet very different. A close look the the ships in the Thames reveals that many are futuristic warships, and many of the aircraft appear to carry weapons. Perhaps there is a war on? It would be in keeping with many of tracks' themes (Brave New World, Out of the Silent Planet, The Mercenary, etc) The face in the clouds is simply phenomenal. In keeping with the war theme, I think it may be the Angel of Death or something similar. It is grinning in anticipation of things to come. Bloody brilliant all around! Of interest, it may be just me, but I think i see a second face in the sky. On the left side of the album, just beside the eye socket of the grinning face. It seems to be a ghostly figure yelling (in agony, perhaps) I'd appreciate opinions on these observations, and if this has been posted before I apologize.
