Now, this is a cover and a package where a lot of things are going on at once.
Bleach went 4AD on everyone with this cover. Not too overtly weird, timeless imagery, intense closeups, artsy presentation, and everything else coated with gold paint and old grapes. The use of the foot in different positions and at different angles shows all kinds of textures and possibilities.
This is what music used to be about--putting things out there no one had ever seen or heard before, and damn the consequences.
