Vote for the "Best Worst Christian Album Cover Of All Time"!

...Over at the newly redesigned Ship O' Fools.

The home team option is at near left (click to enlarge), but I have to admit, I voted for the existentialism-run-amuck option to the far left.

"Enjoy."

All "great" covers but I have to say the "All My Friends Are Dead" cover is my favorite. Who gives their album such a cheery name and then shoots the cover in a graveyard. I guess the artwork makes sense given the title, but come on. I do have to say my favorite aspect of teh photo is the seemingly white patent leather cowboy boots that Freddie is sporting.

Freddie was ahead of his time, actually. A lot of rap stars could cut a similar album!

His cover gets my vote too

Oh, I don't know...I kind of like the Reverend (in) Rhythm singing Tiny Bubbles must be a real laugh.

I'm just hoping for mp3 download options!

While they were redisigning, I hope Ship O' Fools fixed their caption contest so that people can't keep making indiscriminate entries. Folks were posting virtual repeats of prior entries and multiple (I'm talking 10 or more, for some of them) entries without regard to whether they were funny and it just got tiresome to go through the list for the few good ones.

While "All My Friends are Dead" is a real vote-getter, it is hard to argue against "The Reverend in Rhythm" as being one of the worst imaginable titles, ever.

Are Freddie's friends really dead...or are they just avoiding him on account of his unfortunate wardobe choices?

Fr. has to be given credit for sartorial excellence. You can't beat clericals...

Looks like Freddie is caught between a tombstone and a hard place! Even more comical that it is a sermon not a musical album...about what happens when you hear the message and refuse to accept JC as your personal lord and savior. Doesn't that cover make you want to listen to the sermon? I must say as a youth minister I got a few laughs out of the cover to his 1970's anti-LSD album "Drugs and Youth"...or maybe it was one of the tracks,"Hear the Turned-on Preacher"

Well, Ray,

It looks to have been released too long ago to have been titled,
"The Reverend in Creighton Model,"
or "The Reverend in Sympto-Thermal," or even, "The Reverend in Billings"
