|Album Covers That Perfectly Describe The Music|
Nothing better than albums with perfect cover art. No order.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.

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.
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.
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
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.
|10||My Bloody Valentine|
No words are needed.
|totally agree with 5, 9 and 10|
and this one isn't a cover but it's an album title: Leaving your body map by maudlin of the well. that album just takes you all over the place.
|neat idea for a list.|
|they're a really interesting group they've got a lot of different influences and since you like 9 you would probably really enjoy them|
|don't worry, sarcasm mode off.|
|the doors - strange days|
|Most of The Birthday Massacre albums, Unter Null albums, and Rammstein albums. Marilyn Manson's albums are this way as well. |
|Should definitely do another one where instead the other way around. August Burns Red "Leveler" cover comes to mind. Looks pretty indie without the slightest trace of metal.|
|Good stuff, I agree with the description for all of these.|
|this is funny because i was just reading something about my bloody valentine a few days ago and the article mentioned how well the cover art for loveless described its sound.|
|I love basically every last album here. But that Humbug album has been on my mind lately. "Dance Little Liar", "Fire And The Thud" and "Jeweller's Hands" have a seriously hypnotic dark psychedelic trance to them. Very "smoke-friendly" album|
|i love the album art for totbl but i seriously can't tell what the picture is even of. once i spent
like 10 minutes in my room staring at the vinyl sleeve and i still can't really tell. i'm guessing
it's a stage, but the red square looks too stiff to be a curtain. or maybe it's a bridge from the
perspective of someone standing below on the ground off to the side. idk.|
|same thing for a song title- One Great City!- The Weakerthans|
|"You're falling under the extreme weight of the tides and green murky water you're submerged in."|
I wonder if you could feel this without even knowing the album cover
|Mine would be:|
The Cure - Pornography
Radiohead - Kid A
Modest Mouse - The Lonesome Crowded West
Modest Mouse - This Is A Long Drive...
Joy Division - Closer
Wilco - Yankee Hotel Foxtrot
Smashing Pumpkins - Siamese Dream
Placebo - Without You I'm Nothing
I'm a bit lazy to write a description, but I hope you can figure out the connection between the cover and the music.
|I think the latest Smashing Pumpkins album cover sums up the album pretty well.|
I think another big one would be Abbey Road.
|Kid A would definitely be on my list. In Reverie too|
|pantera: vulgar display of power|
incubus: morning view
|Good list. Innerspeaker|
|ctrl f godspeed: 0 of 0|
|When I downloaded Microcastle, I couldn't even look at it so I got the other cover just so I didn't have to look at it. :p|
