After a day of not so happy news, why not curl up with a literary chili cheeseburger?

This cover has caused quite a stir in the new classical community this week, for good reason as you can see. What does it mean, especially when the music gets involved?

Independent of a value judgment of the music or the use of the picture, it's become distracting. Now the piece has this context of controversy surrounding it that dilutes Reich's intention in writing the music. I'm not going to be able to think of the composition without also thinking, "Isn't that the album with the cover that caused a bit of a hullabaloo?"
