This year has been a bad one hasn't it? Like Chris Brown (http://tinyurl.com/ykus3ek) or , Adam Lambert, Alicia Keys and Hundred Reasons (http://tinyurl.com/ykt43rx)
The Dirty Projectors and Clap Your Hands... ones on that list are so so bad too.
but mainly its the sheer laziness that gets me about his covers
good covers, the last few have got worse and worse... The latest one is horrendous. Whoever designed it needs a slap. Shite photo, shite font, shite layout...
This years Maximo Park artwork didn't show up on any of these threads yet, maybe it had the perfect combination of shit artwork and shit music that it actually won't exist in ten years.
it was an okay album. can't see what was so terrible about the artwork either.
I mean come on:
fair enough the album isn't horrendous but this artwork does look like it was put together in five seconds on photoshop
I mean, when compared to say?:
except for in rainbows.
That's disastrous on a number of levels.
I was coming on here to post this http://www.slicingupeyeballs.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/09/ianbrown.jpg which is just the dictionary definition of hopeless. But I've been well and truly trumped by Joss Stone, who has now translated her massive crapness into her album art. Top marks.
