Top 1000 Album Art Pictures

Deerhunter-Cryptograms

The transition from the intro to the first song is godly. Also, this is a very good visual representation of what the album sounds like, if anyone was wondering. Highly recommended shoegazy, indie music.

Tame Impala- Currents (new album)

Again nothing to do with the music but I’m pretty sure Pink Floyd would win it all. They have some of the most iconic album covers of all time, when you have Hipgnosis doing your entire discography is kind of hard to fail. I

Modest Mouse – Strangers To Ourselves

This album cover reminds me of a [Panopticon](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Panopticon). The basic theory was that the people would never know if they were being observed by the central building, so they (in theory) would self regulate their behaviour for fear of being caught doing something wrong.

Justice- New Lands

If you look on the cover to A,V,D there are two little people standing looking at the cross too, presumably Xavier and Gaspard!

Teenage Wrist – Dazed

I don’t see it either, I thought it was a joke at first. It reminds me of that album art game, where you take random words from wikipedia and a random picture from google.

Sea Wolf – Old World Romance

I recently took [this](https://www.flickr.com/photos/davuuus/16689288777/in/album-72157651437216786/lightbox/) picture, and was immediately reminded of this album cover. It’s hard to say how many times I’ve listened to Priscilla and Kasper.

Tame Impala – Lonerism (back)

Lonerism was recorded all over the world, the only specific thing we’ve heard is that ‘be above it’ was done in a hotel room in france, but the rest could’ve been done anywhere, it was worked on mainly while they were touring for their

MGMT – Congratulations

A great cover. [The special/limited edition](http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/e/ef/MGMT_Congratulations_scratched_off_cover_2010.JPG) was fantastic as well. You could scratch off the checkered part with a special coin they included, kind of like a scratchcard.

Outkast – Stankonia

def read it somewhere once but haven’t been able to find it today. But considering that Stankonia is crammed with sonic allusions to Parliament & that whole early ’70s funk scene, and considering TARGO is one of the most important albums from that era,
