Room Full of Mirrors

I found these two covers of a new biography of Jimi Hendrix. It's amazing what a little centering -- or in this case, a lot -- can do to spoil a cover. And is that Cooper Black in the second design? Shouldn't that font be used for books about Pet Sounds, and nothing else??? ;-)

(The first is from from problematic, though. Am I the only one who hates how the R, S and A in the upper right hand corner form a really ugly mess o' type?

Pass on the first cover, but I love the second one.

I guess I'm crazy about either. I do like the tighter crop on the 2nd, I think.
