HARDHOUND

Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark

Author: Colin | Published: 14/7/10

For their first album in 14 years, OMD have re-employed the services of Peter Saville, sleeve designer of the classic albums. Hopefully bodes well for the music. The sleeve looks interesting – I like the treatment of the ‘OMD’ and the strong orange. The central figure is reminiscent of a girder/subway map/roadsign. I suspect there’ll be no die-cut treatment this time round sadly.

More details on The Quietus.

Here are Saville’s previous designs for the group:
Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark
Architecture & Morality
Dazzle Ships

  1. well the sleeve looks tasty, but i can’t say i’m optimistic about the music..unless Mccluskey and co are thinking of picking up where they left off after Dazzle Ships…

  2. I’m with Bleep. Got my die-cut albums from the first time around, and I’m sticking with that music too!

    I am not one with the colour scheme here. Love the orange and black, but…

  3. Agree entirely with Bleep too. I’m not a fan of the music after Dazzle Ships. Difficult to imagine that they might develop something new, but you never know. The track titles referred to in The Quietus do suggest a continuity. We’ll see.
