I find it really annoying when album art far surpasses the music within, ie. the cover above. I randomly came across it whilst on the world wide web. I’d never heard of the band or its music. I was just struck by how well done the cover was. The color palette and type work perfectly with the photo—its subject matter and style. The whole design is a bit of a throw-back to the Motown Records days, which I really like. I want this joint up in my coverflow in iTunes. So I checked out the band.
And the music just sucks. It’s just really, really terrible. Shame on you, The Almost.
