The Most Unsettling Album Cover Of The Year: A Candidate Emerges

Nov 13th, 2006 // 6 Comments

Last week, we showed you the craptastic artwork for Winger IV, which is currently leading the pack for the coveted “Worst Album Cover Of ’06″ Title. Today, we came across a cover that also reaches the Winger IV heights, although it’s not necessarily bad so much as it is … well, it’s very weird.

After the jump, the cover that made the female half of the Idolator team squirm just a little bit.

It’s the cover for the debut album by America’s Got Talent winner Bianca Ryan. The 12-year-old has a precocious voice, but the placement of her hands in this picture is making us more than a little uneasy. Add that to the R. Kelly cover –sure, it’s of “I Believe I Can Fly,” but come on–and we can’t help but think that Talent airer NBC is setting the stage for a very special episode of “To Catch A Predator.”

    It’s hard to top Britney Spears classic upturned hem on her denim skirt for …baby one more time. Of course, she was all of seventeen at the time. Good jailbait singers are tough to find.

    Fun fact: When I went through the jump on this post, my very first thought was “goddamn it, why do I have to scroll past an American Apparel ad?”

    Vaguely reminiscent of the classically awful Black Sabbath “Born Again” cover.

    Really!

    Unfortunately, Goblin Cock’s Bagged and Boarded (http://www.absolutelykosher.com/goblincock.html) came out a year too early for purposes of this discussion, but doesn’t Mr. Federline’s Playing With Fire deserve a mention for it’s barely-competent Photo-shoppery? (“Wait, so HE’s playing with fire–cause his drink’s on fire? Or I’M playing with fire with this guy cause… his drink is on fire? He’s playing with fire cause he’s smoking a cigarette and he must’ve used fire to light the cigarette?”)? Man is tryna bring back Pen ‘N Pixel from the grave. Instant nostalgia anyone?

    She kind of looks like she could be Alexa Vega’s kid sister.

    If she can act, I forsee a new Robert Rodriguez film in the making…
