    Post-Commie. The budding capitalism. The newly found freedom. You'd be surprised. :D

    Yeah I perfectly know what you mean. It was particularly painful over here, since we were better off than Warsaw Pact countries. The media / art of the 80s looked just like everywhere in the 'Free World', the 90s sucked.

    Such an epic album with such a crappy cover.

  5. RockaRolla1039

    To be honest, I'd add the Dance of Death album cover to this list.

    Also, I don't want to check all the 5 pages, but somebody must have already posted this one:

    I have to point out that mullets are colloquially known as "Czech hairdo" here. :D

    The back cover of the first Chick Corea Elektric Band album is great.


    Ps. Thanks @Forostar for leading me here.

    The 80s were a rough time for Jazz.

    Because I was inspired to listen to this because of the concert today, this is Duran Duran's newest album, and the cover is shit. The album is called Paper Gods, there are several better things that could have been done here!

    Trying to make it look like especially cheap, trashy 80s? Actually, it reminds me of the exercise books we used to have at school. We had to cover them in some form of wrapping paper to stop them getting dogeared, then we'd stick like any sticker we could get our hands on on top of them, usually something that came free in Smash Hits or Just 17. There were some very random book covers out there.

    Yeah, finally they have an album cover that's as idiotic as their music.

    Don't know what offends me more, the inane execution that makes it look like Dance of Death's bastard half-brother or the supposed "political commentary" idea behind it. Also, the title makes me play Metallica in my head, but I guess that was expected.
