Inconsistent title on multiple release


The cover art does not have any title.

http://t.diverse.jp/ = thinkover. CONVERGENCE
http://diverse.jp/dvsp0103/ = thinkover.CONVERGENCE
https://diversesystem.bandcamp.com/album/thinkover-convergence = thinkover.CONVERGENCE
https://open.spotify.com/album/63QaQF9C7j0xxZdsZNUn15 = thinkover,convergence

My question is if there aren’t any title in the covert art, what release should I follow? from what I know diverse system special website is the main one and we should follow it instead because it’s the same as CD.

Bandcamp release sometimes have inconsistent capitalization and spacing. Should i just rebadge CD release and slap bandcamp link?

We all know that Japanese has it’s own style, so don’t use spotify, itunes, and deezer because they normalize everything.

You have the CD photos and official homepages (OHP), here.
Don’t look any further, IMO.

CD photos is the best and you don’t need OHP.
But if it was only a download release without CD photos, OHP would have been the best.

There is no need to worry about any store listings.

http://t.diverse.jp/ and http://diverse.jp/dvsp0103/ are both OHP, both of them have different spacing. Cover art doesn’t have any title, disc title have different line, obi is questionable.

I would look at what the Artist has had the most input into and use that. Spotify can be ignored as a just a shop with a track record of errors.

Bandcamp has a big involvement of the artists, as well as the home website. (For example thinkover,calmdown is also no space) I would take the majority option and go without the space.

Looking down the Bandcamp page the label does have a consistent way with punctuation and no spaces. thinkover.CONVERGENCE
