The Weekly Music Thread Is The WORST IV: The WORSTEST!

Let’s discuss any and all music here. Got a new artist who’s rocking your boat that you want to talk about? Post a video! Found out about that unearthed Coltrane album that has the jazz freak in you losing your mind? Lay it out for us! Have a theory about what your favorite band might do for their next album? Let’s hear it! Anything and everything music-related goes here.

This week’s discussion prompt: What is the worst album cover…of an album you actually like?

There are no shortage of terrible album covers out there, and plenty of websites, articles and other spaces devoted to them. But what about the covers of albums you actually like? Does the cover just plain look bad? Or does it simply not fit well with the music or the artist’s image, in your humble opinion? Does it make you feel embarrassed or uncomfortable (for either yourself or the artist)? Do you think the album would be better loved (or even more highly regarded) if it had a different cover? Also, are there any album covers that over time you’ve changed your opinion on? Feel free to share your least favorites down below, and have agreeing (and respectfully disagreeing) with your fellow Musicados, as that’s all part of the fun!

BONUS PROMPT: For anyone who might have missed out on our previous “worst” threads in what has now become an annual tradition, please feel free to post your least favorite albums, least favorite songs and/or worst lyrics by the artists you otherwise love down below as well!

As always, any and all music-related posts are welcome. Have fun, and rock out with yr guac out!
