An album cover may not seem like an important thing, yeah the quality of the music is the most important, but the cover can actually make or break a sale too. If you're an up and come artist, not much buzz (not saying Cole doesn't have one) and some kid is at the store looking through cds and he sees a dope a.ss cover, might have heard of the artist, but never checked for him, the cover might be the reason he picks it up. If album covers didn't matter then why should any package design? sodas, fast food, beer, alcohol pretty much everything relies on package design to break apart from the competition. the music industry is just as over saturated so why wouldn't the album art be is just as important?

This is so funny, people complaining about a album cover lol... I never see the album cover when I play the music in my car. Please give me some examples of a great album cover so I can see what you guys are looking for.

A lot of album covers of classic albums sucked; it just so happens by 90's standards back then, that was the best designers could come up with. The "36 Chambers" cover would be sh-tted on nowadays if it was released this year for example.

Y'all are a.ssociating the classic MUSIC with the cover(s). Y'all grew up seeing those covers, so of course it's gonna be hardwired in your system that that's a classic cover. It is classic, but it's not necessarily a good design.

Maybe if you had no idea who J. Cole is and are not a fan, then the cover can affect you. But if you know the artist, you know their music, the cover won't mean a thing to you. It'll just look nice in your iTunes.

no homo but dude shoud've had an album cover of him training/scrimmaging hard to make the team or something

or a shot of the mvp's crowd surfing after a big play, and hes on the sideline watching

or playing by himself after the gym has closed trying to work on his game... this cover is garbage

cole really should've made the cover something to this effect:
