The center of the picture for this album is a bunch of roses. The red flowers at first lure you in with an image of innocence and happiness...until you look at the bottom row, and notice that one flower is white, with tiny drops of red in the corner. It finally hits you: once, they were all white--and the "red stuff" that changed them is what you think it is. The music shares the cover art's themes of betrayal, loss and horror. What album was it?
Morrissey, "Kill Uncle"
Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, "The Boatman's Call"
The Fall, "The Infotainment Scan"
Concrete Blonde, "Bloodletting"

10,000 Maniacs, "Blind Man's Zoo"
