That's partially because we know how good TDAG is, and that album cover has been associated with the music for so long. Other than that, yeah you can. It's people standing wearing masks. I don't understand how someone can despise lydias album cover but love brand news without letting bias affect that.
So how can you not understand why some people would hate Lydia's but love Brand New's? One's good, one's not. I don't think Lydia's is as bad as some people seem to be making out but I can definitely see why some would hate it.
Unless I'm missing something, aren't they both just people standing wearing masks? I mean, I get that Brand News is a bit deeper... but again, we've also heard the album and that has a lot to do with how we eventually feel about the album art.
Other than that.. they're both simple and similar. I like them both.
I don't think they're similar. That's like saying any picture of two houses is pretty much the same. It's discounting everything else about it.
