I think the picture needs work - it looks quite flat and at the minute doesn't have the wow factor of an album cover.
I also think the word 'Melody' is too big and needs reducing in size. I agree that the cover looks very Eighties (instead of a modern version of an Eighties/retro style).
The difficulty with creating something quite minimal is that the photography and type has to be amazing and at the minute, it's not really doing it for me.
Im doing a friend a favour - im doing her album cover (shes been signed to a label no one knows lol) and i would really like it perfect! Can you comment on picture, lettering and design? thx!
Thanks for your opinions guys!
