Just OK. A bit amateurish--they could have spent a few more bucks on a better artist and made it much better.

Well it's definitely 80's Metal "Hell Yeah!" Some of them were pretty cheesy looking though.

"Ok" for me on this particular design.

I like the band logo, but the picture is a little too busy and a little dated. Just alright I would say.

The picture is fine! The font I'm not so sure. Not having heard of Y & T before, I was seeing "Y8TE" and reading it as Yatey. The "mean streak" just looks like snot.

Something about this cover reminds me of a Judas Priest cover from Screaming for Vengeance. Maybe it is the bright color scheme.

Back in the day when this disc was released, albums were still around. You wanted a cover to pop, and that one would certainly grab your attention.

By today's standards, it is kind of cheesy, but I still like it. :)

For the time period, I think it is a decent cover. I really like the colors, but agree with David and it is a little amateurish.

It's not bad. I like the band logo too, but the snake is dated and kinda cliche.

the general idea was good. definitely looks early 80s, but it was the early 80s, so yeah - i like it.

I like the cover and the logo. It was '83 so every band had to have a distinct logo. I like the snake better than the Black Tiger cover from '82.

I agree that it looks a bit Priest-ish in a Screaming For Vengeance/Defenders of the Faith way but more shiny.
