whatever, close enough.
kicking things off with Primal Scream:
^trying to one-up Muse
Megadeth does not even come close to the majesty of the Drones artwork.
that is kind of how I feel a Megadeath cover should look
^totally a Nu Metal/Post-grunge album cover
I was thinking about this in the shower yesterday, cos I just covered that Her tape:
The moment anyone saw that artwork
but fortunately the music is on another level.
Artwork that actually makes it impossible for you to buy an album you would probably buy otherwise
with that Tortoise cover. It's so bad it makes me want disregard their entire back catalouge.
Extra points for the title too
and we can declare a winner. I just can't believe worse is possible. Well done to Skunk and the boys.
Prince Rama - Xtreme Now
So much going on, to take in.
is that not only have Primal Scream & Skunk Anansie set the bar almost impossibly high in the Worst Cover contest, they're also likely to battle it out for worst album title too. Chaosmosis? Anarchytecture? These are the kind of titles I came up with when I was 16
AND pub-standard nu-metal cover bands.
How did they get their hands on the Box of Delights?
i saw them at primavera once and their video backdrops were all Zardoz-style science fiction stuff
the whole bob hair marketing hook is really annoying anyway
there is literally nothing worse than unecessary over-the-top vocal acrobatics. we get it, you can sing! now shut up.
less cruel later this year when my album Chillaxe Murderer is finally finished
The Primal Scream one or that. Jury's out. Both sound like they could have been coined by Jeremy and Super Hans in Peep Show.
whereas Primal Scream, Skunk Anansie, Sia and Tortoise are all grotesque to the point of actively discouraging anyone from buying.
This is worse
then got a mate to knock up something asap on ms paint.
which is probably what happened.
he's put out the real artwork now, loads better
Designer: Will this do?
Elton: Yeah, fuck it who cares?
no, this is actually good
also made me check out peter de potter's other stuff, really good
What the steaming fuck, really.
Erm...nah can't think of words.
i sort of hope it's an 'homage' but even then it's still shit
the new kanye?
it's by a real tumblr artist.
people on this site have the worst taste jesus
That's an excellent cover
Its going for that scrap book aesthetic. You may stylistically not like it but it does what its going for pretty well.
who's released THAT? this could be the winner.
Aligned with shit artwork. Giving muse a run for their money
Vertigo is cool though.
If it was going to have a 'strange animal' type thing, why not a bird?
not the worst cover of the year by a long shot but just a poor effort.
But not actively offensive
quite like that even if the music is shit
i wonder if they're related
Yes, I can hear you Clem Fandango
This has cracked me up
It's a beautiful drawing but an awful record sleeve
Without hearing Tommy Cooper going 'Just like that'
I'm sure I'm missing something with this one, but she looks like she's been afflicted with a terrible skin disease.
picture's lovely, got no problems with it as a record sleeve, his music's rubbish though.
That one is really good.
It's a really ugly image that communicates nothing to me.
What do you like about it?
