iTunes Album View Colours

Until I read about it in this Panic Blog post I’d been missing one of the new features of iTunes 11: in “Album View” (just click the “Albums” tab when looking at your music) the background and text colours for albums is derived from the album cover art. Here’s some examples from my collection (the Coldplay and Rheostatics albums are particular nice):
