The Killers' "Sam's Town" (2006) by Anton Corbijn [update]

There was one tag missing on on Artboobs: music! Here's the first (updated) instalment of "album covers featuring boobs": "Sam's Town" (2006) by The Killers with a photo by Dutch photographer Anton Corbijn. More suggestions are highly appreciated.

From a review of the album in a UK music magazine (I've forgotten which one):

As well as a desert bighorn sheep - the Nevada state animal - the album cover has a disconsolate beauty queen leaning against a battered trailer. Corbijn considered hiring a model but then chose Felice, the Puerto Rican-American receptionist at the recording studio.

Amazon review by Aidin Vaziri:

The Killers five-million-selling debut, 2004's Hot Fuss, saw the stylish Las Vegas quartet mining inspiration from its favorite '80s British acts Duran Duran, the Cure, and the Smiths. On its follow-up, the group turns its focus homeward. First there's the album title, Sam's Town, which pays tribute to the old-school local casino where the band got its start. Then there's the music inside, a collection of windswept rockers in the vein of Bruce Springsteen that leave the indie-disco vibe of "Mr. Brightside" in the desert dust. Working with producers Alan Moulder and Flood (best known for their work with U2, Depeche Mode and Nine Inch Nails), everything here sounds bigger and shinier, with full-blown strings and choirs coloring epics like "When You Were Young" and "The River Is Wild." Coming soon to a stadium near you. --Aidin Vaziri
