Cover Wars: Crimson Bound vs Tell Me You Love Me

Cover Wars is a weekly showdown of two beautiful covers. The winner, as voted by you, goes on to face a new cover, and wins bragging rights. This is basically a fun way to discuss what we like in covers.

There are landslides, and then there was last week's Cover Wars. To say it was one sided would be an understatement. Tell Me You Love Me managed a dominant win, and I'm extremely curious to see what will happen this week when it's faced against one of last year's champion cover's sister, Crimson Bound. Cruel Beauty is one of the Cover Wars all time greats; can Crimson Bound topple the goliath that is Tell Me You Love Me?

I enjoy the crispness of both covers. Tell Me You Love Me is a tribute to minimalism, and Crimson Bound has much more going on, from the checked base of stairs to the girl with the red riding hood. But is that enough to beat the adorableness of the ripped couple and heart? Or does Crimson Bound's richness end up on top? 

That's for you to decide! As always, one week to vote. 

Let the Cover Wars begin!
