  1. I coudn’t care less what the cover looks like.
    I’ve heard enough of this soundtrack to know this is going in my collection.
    Can’t stop listening to Planet Wisp.

  2. Cover looks alright. After hearing Sweet Mountain’s music, I’m definitely going to buy this, ugly cover or not!

  3. I’m not even complaining, I’m just saying that it looks ugly. It’s not like I’m over reacting about it.

    But yeah, Sonic Colors music sounds great.

  4. The cover’s a stylistic choice — a far-reaching one, at that, but it’s growing on me! Kind of reminds me of the JP Sonic 1/2/3K covers, if I really wanted to stretch.

  5. Loving the Album art.
    So looking forward to this, from the stuff we’ve heard the soundtrack this time sounds really funky! Right up my street…

  6. err why has sega got the sonic picture and put paint (i think wat the threw) and just put it as an cover but still i think its awsome and so looking forward to this and the game

  7. Ew… I hate the cover. It looks so messy. I’m sure that I’ll be getting this just for Planet Wisp’s awesome music though.

  8. Wow I knew people would complain about this, but the cover art is awesome imo, it’s different than the stuff most artists use. It”s more likely to catch my eye which is prob why they chose such bizzare artwork.

  9. Okay..get over the album art already, it’s not like it’s important or anything.

    I can’t wait to hear this, it seems to contain an awful lot of variety.

  10. Looks like Rainbow Bright puked all over the cover.

    Anywayss I hope we dont have to wait THAT long (late december) to get some clean,crisp music tracks from the game, I’d imagine someone would start ripping the music the day it comes out or something

  11. I’m guessing that the final boss will have orchestral music if this has tracks recorded by an orchestra.

  12. @ Hamilton and people saying not to give some negative on the cover

    please, please grow up! I understand this is supposed to be a friendly community but to highlight ones opinion on a frankly awful cover is all fair game. It does matter actually because it’s the first thing you see before attempting to buy the product and this could impact sales and shows a clear lack of design sense.

    Yes the music for Colours may seem appealing and it may well be great but a bit of crit on the art doesn’t hurt.

    Hey, I’m not judging a book by it’s cover. D: I’m judging a cover by it’s cover! XD
    I don’t know if my opinion is really the same as ProjectZuel’s, but I don’t think it’s too wrong for people to say they dislike the cover. They’re not complaining or anything they’re just saying they don’t like it. Big deal. I can see why the cover looks the way it does. It’s Sonic COLORS! lol I still don’t like it but it doesn’t bother me or make me dislike the music. ;3

  14. @Hamilton: Get over it. We’re allowed to say that we don’t like the cover art if we want to. We’re not even bitching and making a huge deal about it. You’re the one who is being way too uptight about this whole thing.

  15. Alright, if the music is the only thing that really matters then why does it upset you cause some people here said they don’t like the cover? I’ve already said that the music sounds great

  16. @Hamilton

    Seriously? Buddy, they’re just opinions. …oh, but WAIT….our opinions are not the same as yours, so that makes us wrong. Totally forgot that fat-headed rule. MY bad.

  17. Guys, Ngamer magazine was released today. They reviewed Sonic Colours and gave it 86 out of 100, saying “Colours rockets Sonic closer to the stratospheric heights of past glories and hints at a great future. Welcome back, old friend. It’s been too long.”

    Sounds like we have a winner here!

  18. it’s…an interesting cover…not. I could probably do a whole lot better, I mean the typeface’s don’t match up at all and it looks like it’s trying to imitate clubland style posters with those splatter brushes and edgy design symbols etc…
    However the music I am looking forward too, it sounds very promising from what i’ve heard already =)

  19. @ Hamilton

    No, what I’m saying is is that this topic is surrounding the cover design; the music is a related but seperate issue. I do like the music but the cover is aesthetically unappealling and can affect sales and general viwer perception of the contents. I do like the music (bar the vocal stuff) but we should all be aware of appearances.

  20. @BlueChaos: Well Werehog Sonic was so bad in Sonic Unleashed, the levels are so longer than loading screens in Sonic ’06. I wish Sega could get rid of Werehog stages in sequel to Sonic Unleashed.
    NO MORE WEREHOGS!

  21. When thinking about the title of the game, they could have went 2 ways with the cover, one bright and colorful in the kiddy way, or colorful but not pretty, The latter is a better choice imo.
