There is something to be said for a beautiful piece of album artwork, and even in 2014, where the only place many people admire such pieces will be on the screen of their smartphone, a great album sleeve is always appreciated.
Which is why everything in this gallery sticks out like such a sore thumb, as some of the worst, and most underwhelming pieces of album art we have seen in 2014. There are records in here by artists that we love (Arthur Beatrice, Lana Del Rey) and there are records in here by artists that we don't love quite so much (Peter Andrew, The Vamps). All of which could do much better.
These are the worst album covers of 2014. Sorry everyone.
