It feels all 5 of the covers represent certain songs on the album.

When I see the Power cover I see:

Power - for the obvious reasons, it's the single cover but it represents "no one man should have all that power" very well.

Gorgeous - The vibe from this song makes me think of that cover. And the lyrics really remind me of it too, the subject matter.

So Appalled - the attitude of the song and how Kanye really goes in with a pissed off frame of mind. Makes it sound like he doesn't give a fuck.

When I see the cover with the phoniex I see:

Hell of a Life: the whole song is about him being in love with a pornstar. Do I need to say anymore?

Devil In A New Dress: The chorus alone makes it clear to me.

Monster: The whole concept of "I'm a motherfuckin monster"

The cover with the sword in the ground. I see

Lost In The World: the cover makes me think the king dropped his crown and left. Like kanye did and he was Lost In The World.

Blame Game: the whole mood of the song and Ye's emotions really make that connection for me.


I'm on my phone trying to explain this but basically my point is it seems like certain covers were inspired by certain songs.

Y'all feel me or am I insane?

:mindfk:
So you feel me? It seems like Ye' made these covers almost to represent chapters in the album. Like acts in a play.

i feel ya.  but i dont believe that that was the actual thought process when picking covers.. 
it just seems like he wanted to be able to use all the paintings george condo did for him.

maybe a lil reaching..

BUT i can side with it man. I'm an artist and if I was working on album art I would draw inspiration from the music. so it clearly has some truth to it
