Seventh in a series of polls started 8 years ago, involving picking a band and trying to find people's favorite album art of that particular group. 

Choose your favorite album, based strictly on the album art. These polls are meant for studio albums only, but please feel free to mention your favorite live/ep/comp/etc cover arts as well (although there are no of those in this case, according to PA at least). 

This time will feature Vezhlivy Otkaz (AKA Polite Refusal) as the band in the spotlight, with a weird mélange of Russian inspired art choices:

I have only one of their albums, know maybe three songs on top of that, and really should explore them more, but of course in a cover competition I can vote without knowing more.
Actually I'm surprised you picked them for this because I'm not the biggest fan of most of these, but the Polite Refusal one is cool.

I wouldn't say any of their covers are particularly great (though the music is excellent). I'll vote for Geese and Swans as it's probably my favorite cover of theirs ahead of Go To It! & Geranium

I quite like three of them and dislike the others, but I would agree that none are of 5 star quality. But still, I thought it could be an interesting competition.

I'll vote for Geese & Swans, just over Dust On The Boots and Geranium.
