I think by and large most ambient artists/labels do a great job with cover imagery, but sometimes (for me at least) bad cover art that's either boring, ugly, or not on the same page as the music can hurt a release because it's giving you something to look at that is not inspiring or indicative of the music. I think David Parsons, in one of his recent releases, talked about how titles of tracks can suggest imagery to the listener when he'd prefer the listener form their own. I agree to some extent, and I think cover art is similar in this regard. Perhaps we should start a new thread: WORST cover art? A couple that come to mind: Tetsu Inoue's DiN label release (as bad as the music!), Roach/Seelig/Metcalf "Nada Terma."
