Paul Simon - Surprise (2006)
The fact that this is a poor album cover should be fairly obvious. The cheapass fonts, the awful contrast between the blue whatever-it-is up top and the giant, staring baby eyes down below. All of it just screams lousy. What makes this album cover really go the distance, though, is the fact that it looks like a terrible album cover from the early 90's. I can literally imagine some lousy, second-string pop grunge act like Live using this cover back in the day, not a famous pop star using it a couple years ago. I like you and all, Paul, but give me a fucking break here.
