Honestly surprised no one's posted this yet.  Sometimes I feel like the only person in the world who likes classic rock.

1994 is a tour de force of good albums with bad artwork.

Is this ever an "old dog learned some new tricks" cover, yeesh. It looks like a still from the old WWF Attitude ident.

I love the cover for Tortoise "It's All Around You".  I saw it in Borders music and listened to it, instant fan.

Damn, replied to the first post in the thread from six years ago! But yeah, it's a pretty cool album, but not as not as good as TNT, their best, which also has terrible artwork. "Swung from the Gutters" and "Jetty," hell yes.

The singer Graham drew this himself.

"Regret" is a top-five New Order song, but man, this is some bad early '90s design right here.
