What is the BEST ALBUM ART of 2014???
About a year ago, I tried Spotify for the first time (thanks to Vince’s incessant sucking of their cock), and never looked back. It’s now pretty much the only way I listen to music, and I literally only own a single CD (a copy of THESE HEARTS “Yours To Take” signed by Andrew Wade). But as much as I love Spotify, Soundcloud, Youtube, and other streaming services, I have to admit that they are missing an important component of the listening experience: album art! I remember spending hours poring over the amazing covers of classic albums THE ACCUSED “Grinning Like An Undertaker,” MISFITS “Earth AD,” and INTEGRITY “Humanity Is The Devil.” Vinyl may not be the most convenient or best-sounding listening format, but when it comes to serving as a canvas for beautiful artwork, LPs can’t be beat! With that trip down memory lane out of the way, I thought it would be a great idea to throw some shine on the best album art of today, for anyone who might have missed it. Here are a few of my favorites, please share your own in the comments!
