Default The Album Art World Cup

I'm going to post 64 or 128 album covers depending on the response this gets. Just vote for your favourite album cover out of the two albums shown until eventually only one remains. Feel free to PM me your 2 albums you want to see against each other. I'm going to start this off with two of my favourites.

Round 1 Heat 1



1. Iggy & The Stooges - Raw Power

Vs

2. David Bowie - Low

I wish Iggy Pop would keep his t-shirt on. Gotta go with Bowie. Better colour scheme, plus he suits make-up more.

I like Raw Power better. It's pretty raw and powerful.

Raw Power - 2
Low - 2

While it's not one of Bowie's best album covers, I prefer the covers of The Stooges and Fun House compared Raw Power. So, I give it to Bowie.

Raw Power - 3
Low - 3

My vote goes to Low. Like someone else said, the color scheme seems to work better. Or at least that's what stands out to me. Raw Power isn't bad but I'm not a big fan of the word font and the overall contrast makes Iggy looks a bit cut and pasted against the black background.

Raw Power: 3
Low: 5

Raw Power features a decent photo of Iggy, but the actual album cover as a whole isn't a very good or interesting composition. Low, on the other hand, is actually an overall good composition with decent typography and a good use of color. Nothing outstanding really, but better than Raw Power.

Raw Power: 3
Low: 6
