Just thought I'd post it:
I bet it wont have the writing on it when it actually "comes out"

I pulled that off amazon.com, also stating it ain't coming until May 2nd. It represents it as the actual cover, sure it doesn't state that "this is the cover for 10,000 days" but it certainly appears to be it.

As for the words discussion...
ALBUM MINI NOW ON AMAZON AND OTHERS
Some of you may have seen the album mini for Tool’s 10,000 Days on Amazon and on other sites that was posted ONE DAY after we showed it to you on this site (which is what we expected, and why we posted it when we did). Now that it’s out there for all to see, hopefully some of you who have been asking what exactly an album mini is might have a better idea. For those who still don’t know, it’s what a business (such as Amazon) uses to advertise a new product (such as the new Tool CD). Okay? Now, I can hear some of you saying to yourself: “But why does the image on Amazon and the other sites have the logo and album title superimposed over the artwork… when the image on the Tool websites doesn’t?” The answer is quite simple. Because Amazon and others need to include the band’s name and album title along with the artwork so that potential customers will know whose CD it is (don’t ask me why). With that said, the image that we posted on the Tool websites is how this piece of artwork will actually look with the packaging. However, we also wanted to give you a look at the new logo, so we placed it above the album mini. Okay?

Its like I've seen that album cover before...........
Oh, yes... the Lateralus tour...
This sounds cool...
The album artwork consists of a thick cardboard digipack with a pair of stereoscopic (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stereoscopic) eyepieces on one end, which are used to view the album artwork which includes mock-up photos of each band member as well as artwork by Alex Grey, and art with a similar style. Viewing the images through the eyepiece causes the images to appear three-dimensional. The lyrics are unprinted. The cover contains an adaptation of the artwork "Net Of Being" by Alex Grey (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alex_Grey).
