Description
Janov Scream Therapy

Dr. Arthur Janov's (primal) scream therapy advocates that people can only grow emotionally when personal pain is expressed. The therapy influenced many musicians, including John Lennon, in the 1970 "John Lennon / Plastic Ono Band." Tears for Fears derived their name from a phrase in the book–"tears as a replacement for fears." And British alternative dance group, Primal Scream, unintentionally took their name from Janov’s book "Primal Scream" when Band member Bobby Beattie heard the phrase used casually in his youth.

Design Similarity: What Are They Looking At?
Turning your back on someone is considered an insult or tantamount to shunning that person and is one way to end communication. The people in these album covers are probably not trying to shun the viewer, but rather, seem more intent on what they are gazing at. The albums shown are The Proclaimers "Sunshine on Leith" (1988), Tres Chicas "Sweetwater" (2004), Israel Kamakawiwo'ole "Facing the Future" (1993) and Randy Newman "Randy Newman Songbook, Vol. 1" (2003).

Arms Crossed
Reading body language can sometime give important non-verbal communication about people. One of the classic body language positions is the folding of arms across one's stomach or chest. The psychological reading of this position is that the person is being protective, defensive, closed or guarded. The position, however, might more easily be explained that it is a comfortable position to put one's arms into. The following album covers depict people with their arms folded – what meaning do you derive from them?
