I just realized that my favorite album covers are linked to my favorite
albums. So is it the album I like or the cover. May have to come up with
another list, Records I don't like with covers I do like. And vice versa

i got some good albums with wack covers for you... firstly and most recently, mutherf--kin lonnie lynn and his TERRIBLE cover for the otherwise quite excellent BE. dude is supposed to be a creative thinker. step up your cover game for petes sake. no more corny smiles please.
devin the dudes latest(?) to the extreme... with devin breakdancing on the cover. looks like a mcdonalds commercial that's supposed to appeal to the hip-hop market... and i'm not lovin it.
nas... STILLmatic. now, i have to admit, this cover has grown on me a bit, but when i first saw dude with his orange crush on, posted up next to his pigeon friend, i had to turn my head in shame. this was his unofficial come back album mind you. and there he is hangin out with a pigeon trying to look hard. boo.
as far as classic covers...
i think one of my all time favorites, for an album i love, is ol dirty's return to the 36 chambers... the dirty version. the food stamp card. sheer brilliance.
