The cover image is taken directly from a page in the booklet of Godley & Creme's 1977 album Consequences. The face half-hidden in the clouds is a reference to the face on the front cover of that album. There are many album covers that reference or reinterpret images from other existing covers, but "No Geography" is unique in that it takes an image wholesale from another record and does nothing interesting with it. The fact that the cloud face references the G&C album is an additional layer of inappropriateness. This rehash, or direct reuse, demonstrates how short of ideas Rowlands and Simons are.

Excellent album in terms of the music quality and the pressing is fantastic - very dynamic and the bass is just right. Well worth the money spent.

After so many years of listening to The Chemical Brothers they never cease to amaze me. Amazing album start to finish, a must have for anyone born with the ability to hear.

Outstanding album and pressing. This may just be my own personal album of the year 2019, but we'll see. Probably my favourite Chemical Brothers album now. Also, have you seen the videos for these tunes? So creative. Love these guys.

Amazing album, i've never been so surprised with one of their album since "we are the night". A pure Chemical Brothers feeling, mixing funk, rock, noisy techno synths and beautifiul vocals. My new favourite album, maybe their best!
