Strangeness in the Proportion: concept album meme

I picked this one up from Jeff's Gameblog. The idea is to come up with a concept album cover based on certain pretty strict parameters. Mine is above. I kind of dug how it turned out, but I was lucky enough to draw a decent quote ("strangeness in the proportion" comes from Sir Francis Bacon, by the way: "There is no excellent beauty that hath not some strangeness in the proportion").

The meme rules are after the jump.

01. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random
The first article title on the page is the name of your band.
02. http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3
The last four words of the very last quote is the title of your album.
03. http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days/ The third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.
04. Use your graphics program of choice to throw them together, and post the result as a comment in this post. Also, pass it along in your own journal because it's more amusing that way.
So would you buy the album? What tracks would be on it?
