NZ's worst album covers
"That's a shotgun Steve's holding. At first glance I thought it was a jousting stick. To be honest, I'm rather split on this one. On another day I would probably argue that this is actually one of the best NZ album covers ever. I couldn't wait to put it on. I mean, looking at this, you just have to know what it sounds like. It looks as though he's going to burst through the cover at any second and fly around your lounge, trailing stars. The album itself sounds like Steve Miller fronting Genesis doing Dennis Wilson covers. Quite brilliant, in other words."
I found this today in Simon Sweetman's column on Stuff here. He lists New Zealand's worst album covers... but obviously he quite likes this one, and so do I!
