Great Album Covers Ruined By Text [1]

If you're anything like me, dear reader, a good album cover always catches your eye and may influence you rto buy or research the musical artist further. I personally prefer covers devoid of text (leave that to the rback of the case). Here are some that I feel would look great if they weren't ruined by unnecessarily visible rletters.
1Since October
This Is My Heart

Ugh. Looks like a Disturbed album or something.
2August Burns Red

I understand that this text theme is constant throughout ABR's discography and the colors are well applied but come on. A candle melting into a disembodied hand is cool enough.
3Say Anything

Vintage photo with horrendously gaudy text. I know this album is amateur enough but this is awful to look at.
The Power of Failing

Though it's small, I've always hated the distracting text on this. They could have at least made it more elegant to reflect the mood of the album. Instead, they went with Comic Sans or whatever that is.

I'm sure that the designer was intentionally trying to juxtapose a high opacity logo with stark, caps-lock title text but it just looks so weird.
