Best and worst album covers of 2008

Here you go...


My favorite cover was Soilent Green's Inevitable Collapse in the Presence of Conviction. It has sort of a 30's pulp cover look to it only a bit more strange. I love the colors and depth of the picture.


My least favorite is Yngwie Malmsteen's Perpetual Flame. Perpetual foolishness is more like it. Rock star pose, open shirt, pooched mouth and fluffed up hair. And don't forget the flames coming off the guitar, no doubt because he is just playing so fast that the strings start blazing. Oh and look he made sure to show us that his guitar is actually plugged in. That's definitely a sign of a real virtuoso. What a joke. Some musicians grow old gracefully and some goofballs like Yngwie try to live in the past.

Have a great holiday and I hope that you have enjoyed our covers this week!

I almost picked Soilent Green for best...glad I didn't! Yngwie was very nice to me when we interviewed, but I can't say I dig that cover too much.

I like how they had to airbrush out Yngwie's blubber.
