Sometimes it’s good to look on the dark side. We are beset by aspirational images, the top 10 this and the top 10 that, so it’s liberating to see that sometimes even the best of us get it so wrong. Here, without more ado, is my choice of the dozen worst album covers a google search has to offer. Warning: some of these images could offend you.
Let’s start with the mildly creepy,
I am a mother and I think I would be slightly concerned for my life if my son looked at me like this while saying, ‘mother dearest’, (or something like that).
Then there are people who just overestimate their allure.
Others have their innocence exploited – the recorder was never going to hit that ‘let’s play it up in our bedroom away from the parents’ spot.
When innocence and high fashion get together with a bright pink title the result can just look wrong.
Talking of just being wrong – who thought this would sell millions?
The toilet humour just goes on and on…
but there is such a thing as being too earnest,
or maybe a bit too hard hitting with a social message.
On the other hand it is good to get your message across with a strong image – ‘I love my life’. Really? Do you Mr Post?
Ah – here we go, a strong image with the message made very clear – please do not feed the animals.
There are plenty of foreign albums which make us titter – I think this sort of thing is a bit unfair,
but there’s no excuse for this!
That’s my selection – let me know which you would vote worst of the worst.
