Clapton's cover is way more swag. WAY MORE.

OLD SOCK.

though i guess the poll is about SWAG, and clapton's looking all pleased with himself, clearly on vacation on his estate on some island, so...

I'm only talking swag, Clapton's has swag, Neil's...not so much

he should have called it COCK SOCKET

Neil's photo looks like he press the photo button while he falling down.

Clapton is getting blown while rich guitar playing lawyers pay huge sums to tell him how cool his tones are

well, no he shouldn't, i just felt like writing that out

Actually the only way I'd ever respect Eric Clapton even a little bit is if he changes the name of this album to I'M AN ASSHOLE

neil - "I wash born here, an I wash raished here, and dad gum it, I am gonna die here, an no sidewindin' bushwackin', hornswagglin' cracker croaker is gonna rouin me bishen cutter."

eric - "this pic was taken on the beach by our summer home in hawaii. not pictured, beach and home obv! :P"

Neil - Yr weird deadbeat uncle trying to figure out how a polaroid camera works
Clapton - VP of yr office on a weekend vacation

neil looks like he got too close to the camera after setting the timer and then just said fuck it and used the photo anyway
clapton looks like the kind of disgusting old men my former roommate used to sleep with

advantage: neil

Love Neil, don't care for Clapton but gotta vote for the latter cause Neil's artwork here feels far more affectedly shitty. Clapton's is just a lapse in taste.

Interestingly, Old Sock was originally titled Racist Fucking Piece of Shit.

Tarfumes The Escape Goat, Friday, 8 March 2013 20:03 (five years ago) Permalink

all these arguments against clapton ironically add to the evidence that he gives less of a fuck. young's cover is somewhat calculated while clapton is effortlessly and repulsively lame.

To be fair I am peppering yr work email with supporting claims.

We've already put in twice the work the Shakey or Slow-Hand put into their respective album covers

DON'T LISTEN TO THEM m@tt

Clapton's effortlessly says Hi I'm a Right Bloody C--t and whether he did it on purpose or not he's still Eric Clapton therefore he loses

aka the Don Henley equation

it's really the 'swag' part of the equation, being a cunt is often an important part of swag

Also we all need to step back and think on one thing:

Eric Clapton has a new album. That album is called OLD SOCK. OLD SOCK! SERIOUSLY

chr1sb3singer, Friday, 8 March 2013 20:38 (five years ago) Permalink

This is new?! I had just figured that it was some forgotten thing from the 90s or the 00s.

what is that against neil's door anyway

goole, Friday, 8 March 2013 20:55 (five years ago) Permalink

The reason I think Neil wins this is that I really don't think he took that picture with the intention of it being his album cover, whereas I think the concept behind the OLD SOCK cover was brainstormed in a conference room around a very, very expensive table.

i can't tell if whatever is against neil's door is leaning or affixed to it. like maybe it's some 2x4's he nailed to the door after he kicked it in the previous night and made a hole.

is that a dog against the door?

see, i get the feeling neil thought this crazy old man photo would be a great cover for his crazy old man music, really set it off, get people looking at it, no mistake

i get the feeling it never occurred to clapton that anyone would object to title old sock in goofball font with vacay pic

careful consideration is not very swag.

goole, Friday, 8 March 2013 20:58 (five years ago) Permalink

Plus, Neil already did the IDGAF SWAG album cover with the cover of "Silver & Gold" taken with a damn Game Boy

I can't tell if that is an actual album cover or a meme, which is probably the point, good work Elton.

Still

OLD SOCK!

Engineer:"Well, Eric I just love the mix, think everything is sounding great...say what are you going call this one?"
