The Worst Record Covers of All Time: Pitchfork Feature

Worst album covers? If by 'worst' you mean 'awesome'!

"Urban Outfitters and Restoration Hardware sell black aluminum frames specifically designed for 12' records. The vinyl album now doubles as both pop artifact and usable music format, and in seemingly equal amounts. Flea market bin-flippers search for records that pique their interest both by sleeve and content. Often the sleeve is an end in itself, or can at least prompt an investigative listen. Most of the record covers contained within this list, whether released during or after the vinyl era, are the kind that would stop one's finger-flipping. In this regard the list serves not just as a mockery of bad art, but as a eulogy for the era of The Record." The Worst Record Covers of All Time: Pitchfork Feature
