Music Reviews

More music reviews for you now, with the quality of the entire package judged solely on the cover artwork. It's the only fair way.

Fightstar - Be Human

Here's a scinillating cover, all right. A half-cow-half-woman could technically work as a cover. It's intriguing. It's arty. It's potentially interesting.

Not like this though. This cow-woman just looks do terribly bored with the album. This cow-woman looks like she's posed for so many albums that if she does just one more, she's going to go postal. Or at least, she would, if she had the energy. She might sigh, light up an Embassy and think about how life would have been different if she'd had the foresight not to be half a cow. - 1/10

Asher Roth - Asleep In The Bread Isle

This is what the world needs - MORE comedy rap acts. Because Goldie Lookin' Chain just wasn't enough for us.

This is a great album cover though. I love the way that the photographer has heard the name of the album and come up with something really subtle and not shit.

And isn't Asher Roth the country in Warcraft? - 7/10

Booker T - Potato Hole

Oh, you are fucking kidding me, right? Just because he's Booker T he can put out a thinly veiled allusion to Goatse.Cx as an album cover? Fuck right off. If I did that, there'd be a fucking outrage. And believe me, I know. I speak from experience. - 8/10

  1. It's more the album title I'm worried about. 'Potato Hole'? To me, it suggests that Booker T. has been reduced to having sex with potatoes.

    I suppose it makes a change from all those green onions.
