The Eminem show album cover is plain and simple; there is an image of the artist in a stage curtain. The E in Eminem is the wrong way round which gives it a sense of the rap genre. The spot light is not on the artist could show the emphasis is on the music and not on him.
The curtain could imply that his music is dramatic. The colour scheme is mostly red which can show anger or lust. Then the font is also big and the colour stands out from the background. The artist looks small compared to the whole album cover which could show he doesn’t want to be the centre of attention and he wants to let his music do the talking.
