Modcast #542: Eye of the Beholder

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, or so the saying goes. Of course, they also say one man's trash is another man's treasure. In the continuing tradition of terrible ideas for a modcast this week Mary Queen of Cosmos joins me on an audio podcast for a visual topic: album covers. She delivers her list of albums with striking covers and we play some of the songs to give you the flavor of it all as well. (See all the covers down below the videos)
