Rate The Album Cover Above You

Recommended Posts

Homemade Dynamite

Didn't see a topic like this, so I thought I'd make one. Here we'll post pictures of album covers and rate the ones above us on how much we like it, how good the art is, and what it conveys. Only rules are no real gore or anything like that found in black metal albums (Don't want this to get locked!), also remember to rate the cover and not strictly the artist as you're judging the quality of the cover alone.

 

I'll start:

I was almost certain we had a topic like this, but I must have been dreaming. Only one I found was simply sharing album covers that you found interesting. It seemed only natural to make a game out of it, and I find that the album art is just as crucial as the music itself. I'll give this one a 7, because nostalgia is a powerful, ravenous beast. I love the contrast, and the Gundam bootleg aesthetic. You couldn't get away with album art like this now. It'd be passed off as wannabe Japanese lo-fi trash.

It's the pinball wizard... what more needs to be said! A solid 8... they don't make album covers like they used to, not IMO anyways. The 70's had some of the most recognizable/memorable covers. All one had to do was give a quick glace to know what it was. I miss vinyl. The full sound they provided as well as the cool artwork inside on double LP's and the occasional lyrics sheet within.

Queen

[10/10] It's powerful because you know it's a Lorde album just by looking at it. No need for her name or an album title. It just is. The cover also captures the mood of the music.

8/10, I am a sucker for simple and cryptic album artwork. If you try your absolute hardest to forget everything you know about Queen, you'd be forgiven for completely misjudging what music this album featured. If I may borrow just a little from what we do already know, Queen had yet to build much commercial success prior to this, so for many this would be the first experience they'd even had with the band. I love the contrasting colours, and there's confirmed evidence that the band's photographer drew inspiration from the movie Shanghai Express, particularly this shot. Queen weren't too keen on the idea at first as they felt it was too pretentious, but obviously the iconography grew on them because it directly inspired their video for Bohemian Rhapsody.

 

Sorry, I waffled and broke every rule in the topic. I just thought it was interesting. My rating still stands based on appearance alone.
