Album Covers That Perfectly Describe The Music

Nothing better than albums with perfect cover art. No order.
1Deerhunter
Microcastle


When you listen to this record, it makes you feel exactly how that guy looks. Sick, tired, and gloomy. Yet, the album has a beauty and almost sparkling sound of strings that surround you as you listen to it.
2Electric Wizard
Come My Fanatics...


Electric Wizard is a band that could have at least 3-4 other albums I could say the same about, as all their album art flawlessly describes the music. When you hear "Ivixor B/Phase Inducer", you ARE on that planet that the album cover depicts. The colors are perfect for the guitar tones and fuzz on the album, and evil sorcerers are cornering you into joining their cult, and you give in.
3The Cure
Seventeen Seconds


The colors of the album cover just do it for me. And the album cover makes me feel like "I've been here before, but when? And where is this?". It's a weird album like that. Familiar, but never giving you a secure feeling of where you are.
4Interpol
Turn On the Bright Lights


This album's music is the epitome of "winter music". You really are Paul Banks walking down the cold, snowy NYC sidewalk at night, towards home, all alone with your iPod in. The actual image on the cover sleeve doesn't so much depict this, but the glowing red and black surrounding it are just perfect for some reason.
5The Smashing Pumpkins
Siamese Dream


The warmest guitar tones ever + the glowing orange tint on the cover = PERFECTION. This album is definition of toasty. Put this on during those cold winter nights and you're bound to feel at least a little warmer. And the album is perfect too, so that's always a major bonus.
6Boards of Canada
Music Has the Right to Children


This album was an easy pick. That aqua/green-ish tint and all the hazy/distorted view of the picture are just perfect for the analog equipment these guys use when making their sound. Even the music videos on YouTube are perfect for their music. Great imagery.
7Arctic Monkeys
Humbug


Mhm. You're chilling out with your friends, you're definitely high on something, probably weed or shrooms, and you can't get enough of the Psychedelia and haze surrounding the guitars and music you're listening to. With Josh Homme in the studio for this one, it's easy to see where all the drugged-out imagery comes from. Great album.
8The National
Alligator


You're with the love of your life in autumn walking down every street in NYC and you're slightly buzzed on whatever you have in your fancy flask. You both just got out of some classy concert/show and you're merrily walking home late at night, laughing and talking at the things that happened that night and you can't stop smiling. You're in your 20's in the prime of your life and you know it, so you're embracing every moment of it. Perfection. Actually, the album cover only helps a little bit. The overall music on this album simply makes you feel this. I love this album.
9ISIS
Oceanic


You're falling under the extreme weight of the tides and green murky water you're submerged in. Someone tied a ball and chain around your leg and you can't get it off. You're probably going to die and meet your maker, but you enjoy the beauty and power of the water as you slowly drown under the immense pressure of the ocean's majestic nature.
10My Bloody Valentine
Loveless


No words are needed.
