How does A + B = C?


how is this an equation?


Evidently MYM + Cover = a terrible album name that's easier to digest

I don't know about that - I think he's talking about the whole package, i.e., album art, title, songs. That's not unreasonable to see how/if the puzzle pieces fit together and then have a new appreciation for the title.

I like Lightning Bolt, but I love van art, so I don't exactly have taste.

The artwork looks like Ed saw that "Keep Calm and Carry On" meme and thought "oh hmmm that's interesting."

I hear it every single time I see the album title. PJ should really be more up on YouTube memes.

Isn't that what an album is though?

i think this is going to be Pearl Jam's AC/DC album, which will assuredly terrify some people. Its not what I would have asked for, but I think it might be fun in a way that Backspacer desperately wanted but failed utterly to be .

Context.

Shitty art has none. What few clues the (potential) cover art and the lyrics/composition/sound of MYM provide help lead me toward a potential frame of mind; a context. 'Lightning Bolt' as a stand alone title is uninspired. If there's more to it, if there is a relevant context, it helps the title make more sense. Perhaps Lightning Bolt is the best title for whatever this album is.

As several band members have stated, the album has a mix of different sounds on it, so you're AC/DC hopes have already gone by the wayside.

I don't know. If MYM is the only turd on the album, and the rest is pure gold, I still won't be able to get over this horrible name.

Fine. I should have said, "It's not the best. But MYM and the cover help ME tremendously. I shouldn't have dragged y'all into it.

Surely the vinyl will be available in indie record stores with FLAC/mp3 download codes, correct?

I'd much rather buy it in my neighborhood than order from 10c. Thoughts?
