I just saw this new logo pop up on the back of the new Doves CD. Just wondering what you all think.

Sorry I couldn't find a better picture of the new logo, hopefully you get the idea (it's the circle with the EMI cutout).

Hu... the new logo looks a lot like the ENERGIE-Logo Dirk Rudolph did some years back...

Yeah, and on CD's that are liscenced from EMI UK by other divisions of EMI, it has both logos on the back. At first when I saw that I thought they were trying to get people used to the new logo before making a complete transition, but after searching for the logo online, I realized the contrary.

I personally really like the somple rectangular logo over the circular one, not really sure why.

>On the aforementioned EMI Chrysalis UK website it's really hard to read the new logo when it's that small, the block letters in full would be easier.

This becomes extremely important on the back of a CD, when the logos are no bigger that a 1/4 inch in both directions.
