Bad fonts on album covers are absolutely inexcusable, and seem to be getting more prominent? I can usually cope with poor art/photography, but when it looks a Microsoft Word textbox has been used, I lose all patience
The kerning is horrible too - with ‘Seeking’ stretching out and ‘Thrills’ all squashed together to fit the space.
One of those things where they’ve achieved exactly what they were going for, but what they were going for is awful.
There’s a fundamental silliness and lack of pretension about it that’s quite endearing.
It’s very puzzling though - I of course accept the idea of an Angel smoking a massive bong in heaven, but why on earth would it be inconveniently and impractically shaped like an anvil?
The band is called anvil and they have an anvil on all their covers and that’s why it’s so endearing
You can imagine the conceptual meeting- ‘I have a vision of having an angel smoking a bong in heaven’, ‘that’s brilliant, but how are we going to get an anvil into that?’, ‘wait a minute…’
It’s confusing with the album title as well. Like, it’s only legal when you’re dead and in heaven? Or maybe the weed laws have just changed in heaven? Anyway I really like it. Could’ve done with angel looking a bit more zonked though
She’s just had a proper cough from that last hit.
Had a good chuckle validating this claim:

This can’t be a Jesse Kanda job, right?
