This design of sleeve was most popular with the CD's design being similar. A different version (which reversed the sleeve design) was also available but was rarer (see below).

additional information
This version of the album was exactly the same as the one above except the sleeve design was different. The face montage was swapped (so the back cover was now the front) and the graphic blocks for the album's name and contents were also repositioned.

This cover was preferred in the USA where it was used for the A&M version of the album.
