Pitchfork’s Worst Album Covers Of 2007

Stereogum | December 13, 2007 - 10:59 am

Our friends at Pitchfork — if there’s one thing they know, it’s how to hate with style. Today the point-lovers set aside their trusty numeric conventions for an unranked and totally amusing list of the year in terrible album covers. A few to give you the idea:


Biffy Clyro: Puzzle
This guy must be the world’s worst puzzle-solver.


Eagles: Long Road Out of Eden
Any cover that lists “Eagles” as the artist is a horrible cover.


Prince: Planet Earth
Prince finally fulfills his dream of having sex with the entire planet at once.

Head here for the rest of their one-linered top 20. Maybe MP3 is to blame but it seems easy these days to find the shitty … but what about album art to love in this time of cholera? Well we’ll leave it to you to tell us (crib sheet), we’d rather continue dwelling on the atrocious. After the jump, a simple image signifying a historic low in cover imagery. NSFW if you are a graphic designer and want to avoid co-workers’ knee-jerk, eye-gouging outrage.

OK so that’s unfair. Remember how Perry read your comments and totally made it better?
