Pepper's cover for FC looks great, doesn't it? All that bright color on an expanse of white just jumps out at the viewer...er..psychedelic. There's LOVE up in the corner but if you look at the guys man they look real real serious. What's the message? LOVE's serious? or "Love is soemthing to take serious" (maybe all that you need?) And is that Arthur with a "tear-well"? FC..one of the greatest records ever made because it speaks to serious things. Life ain't no joke man.
You might be reading too much into it - great great album, but what about those lyrics?
You know I'm not sure about anybody else but of all the records and music I have listened to in my life FC is only about a select few where the music and art endlessly go about in my mind. It's just so rich to explore. Man if I was a prof in college I'd have a course on FC......
And thanks bluecap for that review...that guy spent some time on trying to unravel FC, eh?....I don't know but I think the record is so important all the reviews should be put in one place if it hasn't.
