This is in no way as much fun as the Worst Album Artwork thread (no offence @bornin69x). If there isn’t one of those yet, can someone make one?

Already in motion :+1:

i love them equally

The glorious yin and yang of album artwork. Particularly enjoyable for the few pieces every year that get nominated in both threads.

I love the illustration but I’m not a fan of that frame round the outside (horrid colour, horrid font, kind of musty and old fashioned looking)

The deerhunter album looks like they really wanted to use Papyrus for the font but chickened out at the last minute.

the kerning on it is terrible

Absolutely. They used a slightly too big font for the title and that gave them no space to make it look right.

That’s lovely. What is it?

Kaleikr “Heart of Lead”. Icelandic progressive blackened death metal.

Lots of metal bands seem to take a lot of care over artwork.

Ghost Box releases are usually pretty good aesthetically but I think this one really nails the woozy feel of Pye Corner Audio.
