Excerpt from Out Of This World - The Story of Muse by Mark Beaumont

"It [Black Holes and Revelations] needed a sleeve of equally epic scope of course and so Storm Thorgerson was called on again, this time coming up with the concept of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse seated around the table on a barren red Martian landscape. Shot in Spain, half a mile from the Spanish Air Force's prime bombing test area, Storm represented the Horsemen by different coloured horses on the table in front of them, far too small for the Horsemen to ride, to signify that the sins of the riders had far outgrown their steeds. The pale horse represented death, the red one was war, the black horse was famine, and the white one was that of the Antichrist, and the Horsemen each wore a suit representing an ailment of humanity. For these, Storm envisioned a very modern Apocalypse, with the four Horsemen standing for greed, paranoia, religious intolerance, and narcissism; you'll note that greed has more horses than the others."
