It seams very popular nowadays to print book covers on CD covers. Recently it was Explorers Club and now it is Without Warning, a progmetal / powermetal band from New York. This idea didn't work on the Explorers Club album and it doesn't work much better here. The logo, the title and the photograph doesn't at all look like they are printed on the book. It would have been much better to use the photograph over the whole cover I think, as it is quite interesting on its own.
The booklet contains no artwork at all. Only the lyrics printed on a yellow background. I prefer this more than booklets with the lyrics printed on backgrounds with too much texture and colour changes, which sometimes makes it very difficult to read the words.
The most exciting about the art on this CD is the "WW" icon printed on the back of the booklet and also visible in the clouds on the cover. I like it a lot. But over all this is a quite boring production.
