Shit album artwork

Recommended Posts

I'm a big fan of UFO, they've had some great album artwork, especially the Hipnosis ones, but I don't know what they were thinking when they decided to use this....

All of the OP's original choices. I don't think I'd seen any of them before but they're gash.

Also, all stereotypical metal artwork ever.

I like stereotypical Thrash artwork. The artist that did Peace Sells, and the Municipal Waste record. I love that whole bright red sky, toxic waste imagery. It's corny as fuck.

i'm not having that. every pavement record had pretty eye-watering cover art but only maybe half really fit with the music contained therein. in my mind the sparkly stars and neon cowboy(?) here perfectly reflect the noises on the record that were caused by nigel godrich's glossy overhaul of the band's sound.

i don't really have anything useful to contribute to this thread, i'm just going to argue with people about aesthetics.

Yeah, I guess, but it's still horrible in my humble, wonderful opinion.

That's Soviet Realism, innit?

[EDIT] I might mean Socialist Realism. I've had rather a lot of wine. [/EDIT]
