Great Album Art (part 2)

This is the second part to a series I'm doing on good album covers.
1Max Richter
Infra


This is really simplistic, yet it tells a lot.
2Decrepit Birth
Polarity


Not really my cup of tea as a band, but the way the shapes are painted is fantastic.
3Circa Survive
On Letting Go


Again, I don't really listen to these guys. But they picked a great painter to do all of their work.
4The Sword
Warp Riders


Included by request.
5Lightning Dust
Infinite Light


The way the shapes are framed in the composition rocks.
6Thom Yorke
The Eraser


The way the lines converge into the figure is great.
7My Bloody Valentine
Loveless


This art is really representative of the band's sound. Lurid and dreamlike.
8Napalm Death
Scum


I love the deep dark shadows here.
9Echoes of Yul
Echoes of Yul


The contrast between focuses really throws one off. In a good way.
10The American Dollar
A Memory Stream


I'm a sucker for out of focus photography.
11Sunn O)))
Monoliths and Dimensions


Concise imagery.
12Intronaut
Valley of Smoke


The tones here seem to have an almost watercolor quality.
13Nadja
Thaumogenesis
14East of the Wall
Ressentiment


This has an graphic feel to it.
15U.S. Christmas
Run Thick In the Night
16Interpol
Our Love to Admire


This is weird because I don't like Interpol at all. Gotta give credit where it's due, though.
17Black Mountain
In The Future
18Jesu
Why Are We Not Perfect?
19Down
Down III: Over the Under


Again, I don't really like these guys. It's cool that they got members of Eyehategod in it, but Phil Anselmo isn't very good. I just like the cover.
20Epic45
In All The Empty Houses
21Buried Inside
Spoils of Failure


There's an illusion of motion here with the repeated birds.
22Ulrich Schnauss
Goodbye


Really unusual colors.
23 thisquietarmy
Wintersleeper
24Minutemen
The Punch Line


This is really different from the typical punk cover. It's full of primary colors, but it doesn't look overdone.
25Sleepmakeswaves
In Today Already Walks Tomorrow


The first thing this reminded me of: J.M Turner.
26Explosions in the Sky
All of a Sudden, I Miss Everyone


Very impressionistic.
27Hammock
Stranded Under Endless Sky


There's an incredible contrast between the lights and darks.
28Porcupine Tree
The Incident


This has a really immediate focus.
29Enslaved
Vertebrae
30God Is An Astronaut
Far from Refuge


The trails of whites seem almost ghostly.
31Envy
Abyssal
32Death
Human


The contrast between realistic anatomy and the drips of paint is interesting.
33The Blood of Heroes
The Blood of Heroes


This artwork is essentially the reason I wanted to check these guys out.
34Black Flag
Damaged
35 Ennio Morricone
Crime and Dissonance


The colors are very vibrant here.
