What albums do you like but just don't like the cover?

Black Sabbath-Paranoid
Frank Ocean-Channel Orange
Bane-The Note
Gorilla Biscuits-Start Today
Pretty much every Say Anything album.

Everyone always points it out, but Total Control - Henge Beat is an absolutely incredible record with some godawful (intentional or not) artwork.

I don't know why but it just looks silly to me. Pretty much all of their other album covers are amazing though, Sabbath Bloody Sabbath especially

Merchandise - Strange Songs (In The Dark) is the only album that really comes to mind right now.

Yeah, I'm going to have to agree with this one. I love the Paranoid and Strange Songs in the Dark covers, what is there not to like about them? :smt017

Pretty much awesome.

I know everybody is entitled to an opinion... but the op is wrong and should be shamed for not liking this album cover.

I fuckin' love converge, but most of their album art does nothing for me. Like, it's well done and it has consistency, but it doesn't do it for me.

This cover doesn't bother me as much as some of the stuff out there, but the album really deserved better.

This is just way too green. If it was b/w it would look fine.

I like the blue version for Spheres, but that's about it. Testimony of the Ancients is alright, but far from Dan Seagrave's best.

Fair enough. I always liked that color scheme and the simplicity of the design. They screwed it up for the 30th anniversary edition though.

It's not so much that I dislike the art, but more that this album fucking destroys and I can't see many people randomly picking it up because of the art. It doesn't do the music justice.

Broncho - Can't Get Past the Lips

Awful title as well, but it is the perfect blend of Ramones, Undertones, Weezer, and the Strokes so I let it slide.
