Mars Volta and Album Art

Many artists have lost touch with creative and thought provoking album art.  They feel they can slap together seven highly edited songs and cover it with some half assed picture of the band, or quirky fonts on a solid background.  The Mars Volta, however, have not lost touch with this important aspect of releasing an album.
