The white pony is exactly the picture on the case showingsimplicity and to open your mind, something the album requires andneeds.
  9. 9. Underoath: They’re ChasingSaftey Underoath (they’re chasing safety) is just a direct look into the camera, the breathing apparatus used is part of the idea of a concept album, about breathing, the bands logo or name of the album isnt on the cover or even on the back hiding the information on the inside of the album, the album is fit for genre as the intense cover stares right at people, the breathing mask not only resembles the idea of the concept behind it also seems abit to graphic to be considered as a pop album, the colours and shading is also darker, the expression is also a more serious one, the music is serious, on the other hand pop
