Album 16 Repackaged!

If you've been perusing the various Odyssey fan sites lately, then you've probably seen the latest repack already. Here we see a unique twist on the cover for Album 16: Flights of Imagination, continuing the trend of replacing the original collage covers with an illustration of a scene from a specific episode. And in case I haven't expressed my appreciation for the new artwork enough -- yes, it's much better than the original. Note that Gary Locke has a cameo in this cover... can you guess who it is?

For an album that had such powerful episodes in "The Mortal Coil" and "It is Well," it's interesting that they decided to draw from Columbus: The Grand Voyage. Plus, Gary's depiction of Lawrence is more how I imagined Jimmy to look like. It's still another excellent cover, however, and I can't wait to get a copy when it releases this December!
