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.

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

we need to talk about Clapton's Jimmy Buffet vibe ie THIS IS WHY HE LOSES

Clapton had his pic taken on Tanned Penis Island shortly before Sting's house burned.

Neil wins on handwritten font alone

― Donkamole Marvin (Shakey Mo Collier), 8. maaliskuuta 2013 20:34

neil does have the most iconic handwriting...

― u r the best magician ever. my bad levitate me pls (upper mississippi sh@kedown), 8. maaliskuuta 2013 20:4

someone should turn neil's handwriting into an actual font.

― fact checking cuz, 8. maaliskuuta 2013 20:57

I think the writing on the cover already is a font. They try to hide it by putting a different "n" in the word "Young", but other than that, all the recurring letters are identical.

Tuomas, Friday, 8 March 2013 22:17 (five years ago) Permalink

yeah yr right
actually hiring some designer to make him his own font would be a TOTAL neil move

Clapton missed a golden opportunity to make the "L"s in the title little pictures of old socks. He still would suck to death.

Unless that font is actually crusty, stiffened old socks nailed together. He would then suck slightly less to death.

Re: Old Sock - If I remember correctly, when Clapton released the Journeyman album, the review in Musician Magazine was "Well he wasn't going to call it Hack, was he?"

Hideous Lump, Saturday, 9 March 2013 06:27 (five years ago) Permalink

Xgau, actually:

Journeyman [Duck/Reprise, 1989]
What did you expect him to call it--Hack? Layla and 461 Ocean Boulevard were clearly flukes: he has no record-making knack. So he farms out the songs, sings them competently enough, and marks them with his guitar. Which sounds kind of like Mark Knopfler's. B-

Tarfumes The Escape Goat, Saturday, 9 March 2013 06:41 (five years ago) Permalink

Neil's cover precisely nails that found-object outsider art mystique that chillwavers and underground noise artists have been fetishizing for 10+ years

STILL showing up the kids at their own game in your fifth decade & counting = swag as fuuuuuuuuck

i apologize if it's already been acknowledged but neil's cover is a screencap from the title track's video, in which he plugs headphones into an apple and shakes it at us while lip syncing.

Neil by a mile.

I feel like this cover is just more of Clapton wishing he was as cool as JJ Cale

brimstead, Saturday, 9 March 2013 18:15 (five years ago) Permalink

Clapton's cover just looks like an old rich dude that wants to make a point to the folks that have picked up the album that he is rich, and you aren't.

Old Sock is a great title. Looks like he's on a vast expanse of private property.
