Depressing, much?

Depressing, much?

The above is the album art for Brand New’s forthcoming album Daisy. While it could have been a lot worse, there are a few issues I take with the album art. Well, there is really only one issue. If I, like most Brand New fans, have been waiting for this album for three years, I am sure to know what the album art looks like before I go to the store to buy it. Why, then, does the Brand New feel the need to put the album title and their band name on the cover? We are no longer in the 1960’s. Putting album titles and pictures of your band on the cover is neither necessary nor is it cool. Even if they are banking on non-internet savvy people seeing the lettering and buying the album, their is lettering inclused on the packaging. There really is not a point in putting it on the album art and it diminishes what is, otherwise, a fine piece of album art.
