Cover Story: Breast in show
Coldplay attempts to placate WalMart shoppers by splashing some spray paint across the neeples (as my friend Jim says) in this Delacroix painting, but youjustknow some idget is going to try to have this banned. Coldplay is taking their pretense to the next level. The artwork, the album title, the lead singer's tendency toward the fine art of the fingerwag. Music better make the people come together.
Stacked ScarJo wraps her luscious lips around the lyrics of Tom Waits. The cover is a bit obvious given the album title and I'm not so hot on the Courier font. Typewriters are so passe. I should also note that the setlist for this CD is a disappointment. It's heavily weighted toward the last 15 years of Waits output, which is a difficult set of songs.
Could this cheesy torso gimmick be any more 70's? It's so Penthouse Forum! Does Msr. Tellier have a hairy chest with a medallion? Nice horse pun, but the album, sadly, is overrated. Thanks for the mammaries though!
As consolation to these artists, none of these are as bad as the hideous Madonna album cover, which emphasizes another hotspot of the female anatomy.
