    It looks nice, although I think the red line would look better un-spattered.

    As for text, it doesn't have to be anything fancy. Arial font is all I use and just play with the sizes and colors and whatnot.

    Doesn't fit the feel of the image.

    The image is great though, keep experimenting with text.

    There's too much distortion, it's also very low quality.

    What size are you doing this on? Are you working in proper printing settings and resolution?

    There are many things to consider. Do you have a bleed edge?

    So he's not going to physically release the CD?

    Lol no offense but if you're going to be designing for money you should pretty much learn the basics.

    neuron, dont be so hard on him =\ hes asking for crit, and why would you consider bleed edge when he isn't even printing this and its on itunes?
    @the album cover, If its going to be on itunes man you're going to have to up the quality of it it a lot, the typo really doesn't look good, the overall quality is bad, i'm not sure what resolution/dpi you've done this at but I would consider either redoing it at higher dpi and res or commissioning someone very good to do it
