Edit: I should probably stop using the color orange all. the. time.

You're starting a blog about your intense love of Weezer? But seriously - if I could make one suggestion - perhaps look at toning down the amount of noise in the record, particularly on the label where it starts to look a bit much IMO.
Looks spiffy. Nothing wrong with orange ;)
Hey, thanks Scott. The goal for the noise was for it to feel dated (retro, vintage, etc.) and more obvious than subtle—not just the typical 1% noise filter. Maybe it's a bad direction?
Never stop using orange. If you've got a good color you like, own it.
I agree with Scott - the noise is a little too heavy. It's looking more low-quality/compressed-too-much than vintage/lo-fi, especially with the green bits in the noise. The overall aesthetic is nice, and I do enjoy orange, but the noise iss a bit off-putting.
Joey - I think "noise" in moderation works well, but it seems perhaps a bit overboard in this case. My take is that you're trying to achieve some degree of texture detail though I'd suggest looking at an actual record, or finding a reference online and consider something else so it doesn't get the "compressed" look as Jess rightly pointed out.
Oh, and orange is awesome :)
Joey, this is sick. Great work. Love the subtle textures.
