"Origin of symmetry" by Muse

This is what Wikipedia writes about "Origin of symmetry": ... is the second studio album by English alternative rock band Muse, released on 17 June 2001. ( ... ) Origin of Symmetry was produced by David Bottrill, John Leckie (who previously worked on the band's first album, Showbiz) and the band themselves. In the UK it reached #3 and was certified platinum. The title for the album comes from a concept put forward by Michio Kaku in his book Hyperspace.
The album is seen as a departure from the alternative rock sound of Showbiz, as the band experimented instrumentally throughout the album. Matthew Bellamy used a pipe organ on "Megalomania". Due to the requirement of a pipe organ, this song is rarely played live by Muse...
Nestlé tried to use the song "Feeling Good" in a coffee commercial, though the band refused to give the company permission to do so. After using the song anyway, the band successfully sued Nestlé for £500,000, which the band donated to the charity Oxfam. Fragments of the song "New Born" have been used in an advertisement for Oxfam designed by Tim Burton. The advertisement uses part of the piano intro and the first driving guitar riff...

So Muse seems to have something with food, and maybe even with cutlery, or even gastronomy. So you might see the objects on the original record sleeve as forks...
