I voted for #1 because I cannot abide an uninspired font choice.

@4 - DID YOU SEE THE FONT ON THE SECOND RECORD???? talk about a horrible choice, plus at least on the first one it stands out and is easy to read the text.

Now me, I'd rather see a woman's pants falling off than see a woman fisting her mouth. I mean, what's THAT about?

Oops, I misread crappy as creepy.

Neither are that bad when compared to Leonard Cohen's brilliant new Old Ideas. I say this as most likely the biggest Leonard fan in Seattle (I have 5 Cohen tattoos). But his new album cover was designed by the man himself and is terrible. Nobody seems to mention it.

Trophy Wife is worse. Unimaginative, lazy and takes its self way too seriously. #1 at least has a sense of humor.

Number 2 is MUCH worse, what's with the 90s corporate shopping mall tattoos and belly button piercing? It teeters on the brink of the sublimely monstrous, but fails.

A shame. I love Carletta - she should have put herself on the cover. Her drag is so bad that it's epic.

hmm "worst". like warhol's sticky fingers and underground peeling banana, the first cover plays on people's dirty thoughts while actually being rather innocuous. Incongruent indeed. The second cover seems just to attempt to be edgy in a pandering pedestrian tired & cliched manner. I haven't heard trophy wife, but carletta sue kay's performance and this cd are unique and exceptional & completely incongruent with the lp cover, which us obviously intentional.

By the way, we are the original Trophy Wife from Surrey, BC, Canada. We've been together since late 2004.
