More Than Just Music.

A small list (in no particular order) of some albums that have some cool quirk/gimmick/thing to accompany the music itself.
1Tool
10,000 Days


Stereoscopic lenses that create 3-D renditions of Alex Grey artwork?! This outdoes everything they have done before (Yes, even the cow trying to lick it's ass.) That's saying something considering they pioneer awesome packaging.
2Boris
Pink


Opening the jewel case gives all buyers the same experience: "Blotter paper?!" The anticipation of putting this in the player is irresistible after seeing those.
3The Red Chord
Prey For Eyes


The optical illusion behind the physical CD was a nice touch. Nothing amazing, but nice nonetheless.
4Torche
Meanderthal


I loved the artwork the first time I laid eyes upon it. Then to actually turn it around and see the half-full insert. Then opening it up, taking the booklet out and having tons of trippy monsters and shit to look at. Two thumbs up.
5Glassjaw
Worship and Tribute


What's not to love about a mini record player with a mini record?
6Pearl Jam
No Code


A mosaic of random polaroids created by "collector cards" with lyrics on the back. Unfortunately, you had to be lucky enough to have enough friends to purchase the album and not get duplicates to get lyrics to the whole album.
7Isis
Panopticon


Aerial photographs are cool. When they are glossy they're even cooler.
8The Ocean
Precambrian


A booklet for each half of the album (in terms of time). Awesome artwork that fits in perfect with the concept, and a minidisc set into a full-sized CD. Simply awesome.
9Bleeding Through
The Truth


The over-the-top and realistic goriness is just something you can't help but stare at.
10The Black Angels
Passover


The thick black gel-like screening on white is fun to look at AND feel. And it'll give you a dizzying effect if you look at it for too long, so be careful.
