In our 62nd episode, the pod talks all things album artwork. We dig into the good, the bad, the bizarre, and also albums that get enhanced by the the whole artwork presentation. Can a great sounding album be ruined by bad artwork? Is Tool’s use of visual artist Alex Grey a cheat code? Is Green Day’s ‘Dookie’ the best album cover of all time? Or perhaps AFI’s ‘The Art of Drowning’? What in the world were Papa Roach thinking with the ‘lovehatetragedy’ artwork? We attempt to answer all these and many more in this episode. We open this episode with: a reaction to the recent news of Kurt Cobain’s hair going to auction (#weirdnerdery) and a reaction to the “secret” hardcore show that just took place under the 110 Freeway in Los Angeles about a week ago with 2,000 people.
