The background is a little too cluttery for my taste, but it's fine. I liked that other picture with Hidden Away better, though.

I love it, it's a beautiful shot of you and it showcases where you are in your life right now.... busy, a little chaotic, but very focused. GREAT JOB, JOSH....again! :D

He is beautiful with the wind swept curlies,mellow look, scarf wrapped, busy New York Street look. Very sombre and a bit mysterious. It perfectly fits the tile. I like the sad,mournful tunes that this photo might reveal. He is the most beautiful man. The music is coming close behind---wow.

You almost lose the subject in the background Illuminations. The pic has been photoshopped too much for my liking. I will have to wait to hear the songs to see if they tie in. Isn't this in the same area that Josh took his NY picture and posted it? Wonder if this was shot on the same excursion?

We've been seeing some beautiful photographs of Josh lately, especially those on the Brooklyn bridge with the sun rising behind him in the mysterious dark overcoat.

Am I so old that I do not know advertising strategy any longer? (Rhetorical question.)

What eyes?? You can hardly see them. So many beautiful picture of him out there - I just don't think this is one of them. Too dark and too artsy.

Yes, it's much too busy. The city stuff is fine, it's just too distracting from the focal point. Oh, well, I'm sure the songs inside will completely make up for it! :)

Perhaps I'm just new here, but I don't see why ppl have to be negative about it. I don't see why his fans criticize. It's fine if you don't like something, he can't please everyone, but why criticize on the forum or in public, or especially in a place he might read it? Doesn't he have enough ppl criticizing him? I know I hear about when I defend him. I didn't think his fans should take the time to criticize him on his own board. Just my opinion, not meant to offend. :mellow: I wonder if he got this criticized for the Awake cover? or the Closer cover? I wasn't on the board back then.

I lightened it a little. Took away the color, but we can see his eyes. He tweeted that it wasn't that dark and Sarah will work to get it closer to the actual cover look.

When I first saw it, I was at work and posted from there on my break. It must have been my computere screne there, because the picture actually looks good on my home computer, and when you lighten it Josh doesn't get lost in the background, but rather stands out in a very rugged way.

I guess I'm just used to seeing the baby-faced Josh, and this new man was alarming (in a good way, of course. lol).

Keeping in perspective, I'm not much of a cover looker, I'm more interested in what's inside! And if Hidden Away is any indication of what we have in store, strap on the seat belt and hold on!

Thanks, Josh and the whole team for sharing so much with us.

Things to agree to disagree ....

I loved the cover of the new cd.

I agree with lizzi, shows a focused look with Josh (who look!)

Amid the bustle of NYC ... Now mature, different. Increasingly, native of NYC ...

He is a handsome man, and he knows it. Conveys safety.

Really, Violet, again you are right about the brightness of the picture, which also drew complaints from Josh himself on twitter.

I just want to know where he played this look disturbing? Shiverin :rolleyes:

Relative to advertising concerns for the new cd...

(I posted these over on fojgs, and they seem to apply here, too!)

_________

Awake went right through a lot of people, many getting too caught up in the comedy to remember to listen.

:unsure:

Personally, I think the new album cover sends a clear message: "Don't get ~ distracted ~ this time!"

Hidden Away suggests the same: It's beautiful! Simply beautiful! :wub:

I think Josh is tired of being just another pretty face. He has something really important to him to say, but not a lot are listening. <_<

Seems his new strategy is working just fine. Instead of people getting lost in Josh the model, ooo-ing and ah-ing, they're having to challenge themselves beyond his pretty face to experience a man of great giftedness and stature.

He's really maturing into quite a professional, serious artist! :)

Reality tv/pop culture is full of pretty people...pretty shallow people! People who want more for themselves aren't "buying" into that facade!

Josh has so much more to communicate, and I think he's doing a darned fine job!!

Brilliant, attentive businessman, too!! ;)
