This is a pretty good cover imho. I would have made the texts brown instead of white to make them easier to read, but that all I have to say.
Spatial distortion is a serious problem deteriorating headphone listening.
Crossfeeders reduce spatial distortion and make the sound more natural
and less tiresome in headphone listening.

Beautiful. Love that performance of the Requiem, by the way.

That icon is amazing!  I just did some googling about it (Orthodox Wiki).  :)

Listened also to part of the performance (on youtube):  excellent!

Greeting folks, the worst sleeve were  from label Turnaboutvox, but this compagnie would offer quality thick  vinyl witch mention quality of sound, I am listening a lot to two of them being:

Henry IV but that not the worst  sleeve it's one of there best, but  Music of Spanish Renaissance at the court of Emperor Charles the fifth is hideous look s like someone puke on the sleeve but great vinyl.

Clearly, for the purposes of this thread she's a serial offender.

Huh. My first thought is that it was the comic sans font that was offensive.

He surely is a legitimate heir to Bragolin and co.:

I purchased the Haitink/LSO cycle individually as they were released. I can't say that I even noticed the covers - I had to go check I had the same issue as the ones above.  As I have said before, for me, the cover is the least important part of an album.

Someone who is mainly paid to design adds for cosmetics brands.  ;D

Haitink is one of my favorite cycles.  I only owned them digitally and never noticed the artwork.

I thought those covers were fine/nice. The LSO house label likes close-ups of textures; I think they have some Rachmaninov with snakeskin and leather.
