The cover is interesting and i love the fact that SCANDAL is at bottom right clearly visible and not upside down ^^ But it looks a bit like a fan photoshop to be honest. And by that I mean a bad photoshop.

Actually I think I have this feeling because of the photo they took from SCANDAL, check the lightning difference. This is the picture where TOMO gets a lot of sun on the left... compared to others photos it looks almost fake... the rest is almost fine.

One month to go for that new cover  Happy

I noticed the lighting difference also - I think that's what makes it look awkward. But no doubt fans of the other artists are saying similar things about their favorites and how they're pictured too. They're all somewhat mismatched.

Cover albums are often produced pretty cheaply, and obviously it would be a logistical nightmare to try to get new photos of every artist on this album just for this cover. But, they could have put a tiny bit more effort into this.

Scandal could also have given them a different picture with studio lighting. They should have known that a backlit, sunlit photo is going to cause problems any time it's incorporated into some composite image like this.

Totally, the concept is cool and you can't get a new photo for each artist. But yes the biggest problem is the lightning, some (well at least the SCANDAL photo) are outside photos, others are inside with best lightning.

That fake sensation comes from the light on TIMOxHARU. And they even put someone with a full back outfit just behind lol xD Maybe also because MAMI doesn't look the right way? =P

Honestly it's a bad job for that part of the cover =P The rest looks ok-ish, you can still see some differences but it's ok.

Well not that it's the end of the world, just wanted to post my opinion on that.

PS : upside down faces can be scary, check the artist at the very top middle, it's scary =P  Scared

I like the position of girls, that they are seen very clearly and not covered by the other people on the picture :3 But somehow Tomo's face look really weird.. or is it just me? xD

Take a look at the banner above and compare it. You'll see what they did. They made Tomomi smaller and put Haruna more in front.

I didn't notice that until you pointed it out. I totally get why they did that (tbh, I think it's a little weird how much taller Tomomi looks than Haruna in the original photo - it makes it hard to crop), but the effect is what I think you're describing. Tomomi's face looks physically smaller than Haruna's, who she's right next to. It's actually that Haruna's face is too big on this cover, because they've enlarged her.

Ah well, it's a cover album, nothing to get too hung up about.
