Just scanning my collection to find some notable "bad" covers.

Of course you have Born Again by Sabbath.


Though the following album is arguably worse since it's just a boring photo of Iommi.


Not only is the photo boring, but he even looks bored. LOL

Not exactly horrible, but doesn't catch the eye in any regard.  This approach to cover art is typical of many "supergroup" albums.
