Critique! 5 – Get Scared “Everyone’s Out To Get Me”

Standard

Available now for pre-order and expected to be released on November 11th is “Everyone’s Out To Get Me” by Get Scared. The cover depicts a man in the center of a room in a huddled/ distraught posture. Surrounding this character is what looks like amorphous dark smoke with objects thrown in (a telescope, books, papers etc.)

The line work looks crisp and well drawn. When looking at the piece there is a sense of unease, distress, and paranoia, which, judging by the title of the album, seems fitting. The color palette is harmonious. Most of the colors are muted with a few nice brighter pops of color. Regarding the wood grain, it’s really well done and not over worked. The artwork also kind of tells a story which is nice to see.

The distressed effect on the band’s logo and the messy treatment of the title work well with the overall mood of the cover.
