Bought my first CD of the new year today: "Aquarius Rock". Haven't listened to it yet but judging by the reviews on here, I'm looking forward to it. However, zero out of ten for the accompanying booklet. Normally when I buy a new disc, I like to read the sleevenotes on the train home. Well, I fear it is a symptom of age but my eyes aren't what they used to be and I have difficulty deciphering type much below 12 point. You will understand therefore that it serves me right if I insist on buying CDs. However, I can usually manage to decipher the sleeve notes but those of "Aquarius Rock" defeated my attempts. And the reason was not the font size but the colour. I remember hours of frustration trying to read that criminally illegible orange type in the 2nd edition of the Rough Guide to Reggae. Well, on Aquarius Rock I am unable to read the names of the artists (some sort of weak blue against a livid pink) and the sleeve notes (pink on blue and, even more hopelessly, blue on blue). One of the fundamental rules of information is that it should be readable. This ain't. So my humble request to graphic designers working on record sleeve design: if you are going to use a coloured background for the text, please make the type either bold white or bold black. Colour on colour doesn't work (and weak colours on white don't work either). Please cut it out, lads. It may look pretty but it's illegible.
