Most Appropriate Album Covers

they just fit
The Mantle

The Mantle is one of few albums I like to reserve just for winter. The songs seem to just fit better with a white landscape and grey skies, much like those on the front cover. And check out that elk/caribou. That's totally BM.
2Asobi Seksu

Upside down Yuki Chikudate displayed in bright colours alongside a cat pretty much embodies this record. It's dreamy, it's fun, it's vivid, and it's awesome. One of my favourite new-gaze albums and I think the cover goes with the music more than other AS albums.

Like all Bjork albums, the centerpiece of the cover is the woman herself. But here, she doesn't appear in strange Asian garb or the dreaded swan dress, instead giving a closeup in some sort of Alafoss sweater. Bjork seems young, naive and charming, - much like her music from this album.

What else would belong on the front of an album so massive? To me it perfectly personifies the sound of this immense album.
5Cocteau Twins

Cocteau Twins sound eerie and immature on this album. Fraser is more apt to warble and shout rather than sing, and Guthrie sticks to distortion more often than not. The cover displays a ghost of some sort clutching it's head - extremely accurate.
Barely Real

A nice picture of Belvedere that leaves you wondering if it is, in fact, real at all. Maybe the cover doesn't fit with the music, but matches the title indisputably.

Hello, bio textbook diagram from hell.

You're Living All Over Me

Sludgy, scary, somehow unsettling. The guitar tone and J's off-key vocals couldn't get a better representation than the agonized head on the front.
9Giles Corey
Giles Corey

Creepy music that uses heavy reverb and pained vocals. Great cover to display the feelings of doubt and mystery from Dan Barrett (don't ask why).
10Iron Maiden

80s cheese, great riffs, and a metal monument. The awesome Eddie appearing in Egypt fits in with the music as well as the aesthetic of Iron Maiden themselves. The best Maiden cover, hands down.
Welcome To Sky Valley

Driving music for desert highways.

Melvins have always been a cartoony, kind of goofy bunch with something seriously wrong when it comes to their sludgy music. Houdini is simply the best Melvins cover, because it doesn't match up with the music at all. And that seems so Melvins to me.
13My Bloody Valentine

The lone, fuzzed out Jazzmaster-Jaguar was the driving force behind the album and rightfully sits as the albums cover. Classic (unlike the MS Paint cover for MBV).
Through Silver In Blood

One of the most crushing and immense albums gets a mysterious and fantastic album cover. I could look at this one for days and get lost in it, much like the music itself. Truly an awesome album and the art is probably the best Neurosis have ever used during their long career.
15Sunn O))) and Boris

Makes sense.
