Dumb, Gifted, and Beautiful is a slightly above average power pop album. That said, I hate the cover art. Sometimes I want to grab a band and scream, "You have the chance to put something great out into the world, and this is the way you package it?!" Yes, I know that record labels take care of a lot of that stuff, but there have been numerous examples of bands saying ixnay to shoddy album cover art. The picture on the cover of this record says nothing about the band or the music on the CD. If I were picking CD's on sight alone, I would never have bought this album. Bands need to step it up and make sure they get some halfway decent cover art out there (I'm looking at you, Dada).
