I absolutely hate that album cover but love it at the same time. Like if it was any other artist or album I would hate it, but for some reason it just makes perfect sense… Especially the mockup with the picture disc too…

she's not a pop star lol - an alt pop artist with a cult following, yes

cmon she's just lazy... a lot of smaller artists than her like dorian electra, that kid, allie x or ashnikko serve good visuals, covers or anything else to their fans and now you guys are trying to make that mediocre green cover a good thing:biblio:

It's not a question of laziness, it's clearly an artistic choice, you can't exactly call charli xcx of all people lazy with the amount of music she makes. Sometimes a simplified cover isn't a bad thing, but i do get why some people don't like it as well

okay i don’t wanna be the absolute mayor of hatersville so i’ll clarify 

 

i do in fact see the vision and get what she’s going for and the cover does work very well for streaming & digital but…

when it comes to physicals, especially vinyls - I just feel like the art should be prettier, or just more interesting at the very least. no one is seeing a pixelated “brat” in ariel over a lime green background and thinking “wow! i’d love to display this in my home!”

 

and if the cover ever was changed - it would be the digital version that would be changed.. because it’s done with a click of a button and does not require reprinting vinyl sleeves... but that’s the ONE place this cover actually works so that would just feel kinda useless

 

you could also argue that the vinyl variants might have different covers but i have a certain inkling that they’ll just be the same thing with different neon backgrounds

 

(don’t hit me with an “i’m not reading all that” 😭 i know i just like talking!!!)

I'm incredibly sorry for you if you really think that she chose the green cover just cause she was lazy lmao. you don't have to like it or something but it clearly was a conscious artistic choice of hers and it's related to the sound/concept of the album. every time she talked about what she called pop-minimalism, all these tweets about the concept of ''trash'' in art and so many more. this could never be just ''laziness'' so be fr

can’t we all just bully her into changing it like it worked with Ava Max :true:

 

I wonder if there will be some alt covers/variants made? Although historically that doesn't seem to be how Charli does it.

 

Also can we all just bully Ava Max?
No particular reason to do so, just feels right.

Are we sure that’s not just an exclusive variant of the vinyl? The main variant could be different. Even if it’s not, I think it goes with the theme of the album. Very euro-trash, underground. I don’t understand the hate, but then again I’ve always been more concerned with the music, than the cover.

the green works fine on streaming but it’s ugly as fuvk on physicals 


Wait...are we all collectively upset about the vinyl cover being what it is because it means we can't have some sexy and dramatic Charliboobs on our vinyl wall display shelves? :hooker:

i think everyone has different reasons for not liking it but for me personally, yes 😭 

 

records to me are just very nice pieces of art that happen to go hand in hand with a body of work i enjoy, but if the product isn’t serving beautiful artwork realness, then im just gonna go to spotify idk!

I really am loving the green so much like all the music we’ve heard just gives green/neon/rave vibes

 

i just want some music to listen to so badly :crying:

 

I’m ready for BRAT to become my new personality like Pop 2 was in 2017/2018
