The Smooth Drive Home with Tina Hobley 4pm - 7pm
We’re not sure what makes a good album cover but we definitely know a bad one when we see it. Here are the very worst album covers from Smooth artists of all time. Weird, amusing and more than a little bit scary!
Leather jackets? Check. Spotlight? Check. Scarves arranged in a Doctor Who manner? Absolutely.
We can't help but think the title of this album is a good life message, but we just can't think about that when looking at its cover.
Let's be honest, we could have created a whole picture gallery entitled 'ways in which Prince made bad album cover decisions.'
Jermaine is looking way too pleased with himself for this effort.
Ordinarily, Dolly can do no wrong by us. But her disembodied head here is just unnerving.
Whose big idea were the animal masks? They are just terrifying!
Ok, it might have featured the Bond theme 'Thunderball', but there's no excuse for the terrible fake background. Kudos for the pun though, Sir Tom.
Does Kitt remind anybody else of a Cruella de Vil figure there? We'll be keeping the dogs away from her, that's for sure...
Everybody's favourite '70s teen idol almost gets hit by a steam train. But doesn't, phew.
Yep, people wearing raincoats and chasing children are creepy.
Is this some kind of visual aid to signal the epic journey you'll face listening to the album?
It's their second entry on the 'worst album covers' list, shame on them. Contender for the worst of the worst?
If this cover tells us anything, it's that Bolton can pout better than most supermodels.
