The fourth album from Arctic Monkeys has a front cover. And, you might say…

… it sucks.

Actually this is very clever, if you think about it carefully. The album’s title is inviting the listener to peer in, without preconceptions based on art production, photography, visual signals etc. In that context, such a pristine, unblemished design is probably perfect.
