The AV Club has a fun article about great albums with unfortunately designed album covers. Thought maybe on this Friday afternoon it'd be fun open up the discussion to our little neck of the Internet. So let's hear it, what album do you love listening to but hate looking at?

DLSL Design Co., the company that made those talked-about blink-182 art prints, is back with round two of their Covers series. This time the works he drew inspiration from are Your Favorite Weapon, Deja Entendu and The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me, but he seems to have taken note of some criticisms pointed out in the last thread and has changed his thought process behind the designs. Check them out in the replies and if you dig them, they're available on Etsy.
