|Most Appropriate Album Covers|
they just fit
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.
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.
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
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.
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).
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.
|13||My 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.
