BOC Music head Right to Children

From a distance it looks like a folk album but the colours and faceless figures create an emotion that can only be desctibed as uncomfortable. In an genre dominated with hi-tech imagery clean design this stands out as the breakthrough album for the genre and the band. and The bauhaus type font is a nice touch too.

The music like this cover is timeless. It still sounds good after 8 years of contstant play.

After hearing this album at work I rushed to the music store and bought the album. I couldn’t wait to listen to it by myself with headphones on.

  1. A classic, beautiful album!

  2. I agree – it’s still an awesome album and the cover really suits the music: other worldly, dreamy and just down-right different.

  3. My copy has a sticker on with (I think) the band’s name written in Braille.

  4. It is totally inspirational. I love it. I must say this is a great site too, i was looking for some artwork design inspiration and have found it!
