The Five Worst Album Covers of 2008
A cover that seems created to cause migraines. I suppose this shit's supposed to be a comment on our modern condition or something. If so, spare me.
3. Coldplay - Viva La Vida
2. Nine Inch Nails - Ghosts I-IV
Not only is the cover boring, so is the title! Good music, though.
1. Master - Slaves to Society
This horrendous cover not only beats all (ahem) comers this year--but since it's a reissue from 1995, it can retroactively claim the title for that year as well. Beyond tasteless, this is the kind of stuff metalheads pass off as humor. Incredulously signed by artist (and I'm using that term loosely) Michael Kull. --Darryl Smyers
