Controversial Album Covers II (Pt. 22)

Year: 2009

Manic Street Preachers: Journal for Plague Lovers

The Problem: The album art depicts a painting by Jenny Saville. A number of UK supermarket deemed the red/ochre colours on the portrait to be blood, and therefore used alternative packaging to stock the item. The alternative packaging in question is a longbox, a type of outer packaging used for some CDs in the 1980s and early to mid-1990s.

My Take: I think it fits the title. The red could be anything. The picture is pretty cool, though.
