Judged by the Cover - Pro Panel - Rating album covers with the pros

Welcome back to the Judge by the Cover podcast! In this special episode, host Josh and co-host Phil take us on a fascinating journey through the world of album cover art. Joined by a diverse panel of guests, including music producer Brent, podcaster Iggy, artist Finding Zero, and band members Sydney and Braden from In the Company of Wolves, the episode dives into the visual elements that make album covers memorable and impactful. The panelists are presented with 4 different album covers, each with its unique story and artistic elements. They rate the covers on a scale of one to ten and discuss their thoughts on the design, genre, and potential music style.
