Top 1000 Album Art Pictures

Snakehips & Tory Lanez – Dímelo

Out of all of his songs this probably had the most potential to blow up and give him a more prominent name in the Hip-Hop community or the radio. I just wish his label had promoted this track more

Mathias Kaden – Watergate 14

[03. Alix Alvarez — BDRK (Ovum) (Mixed by Mathias)](https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=LhDklbJGq0E#t=340) It’s hard to recommend certain songs in DJ Mixes because every track flows together to form a single track, with awesome components everywhere. They’re definitely records to listen to in a single sitting.

Deerhunter-Cryptograms

Just saw them last night actually. Coincidentally it was the second show of theirs in a row that I saw because they ended their last tour and started their new one both at the same venue. They expand nearly every song of theirs from

Battles – Ice Cream

I’ve been trying my very very best to not repost. If I have, I’ve gone back and deleted my post (I’ve done it 2-3 times already) – but this one hasn’t been posted for at least 3 months. I’ve always checked the repost situation,

Goose – Synrise

[Synrise](http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FFoBZrMloDE) Stumbled on this today whilst looking for goose-themed gifts (don’t ask)… turns out it’s pretty decent music too.

The White Stripes, White Blood Cells

The cover art of White Blood Cells depicts the duo getting both attacked and enamored by a clan of people wielding TV and video cameras.[3] The images poke fun at the music industry and promotion surrounding it. “When does music become a business and

Bonobo – Black Sands

I was just listening to this. Weird. On a side note… One of my all-time favorite albums. Literally the most relaxing music to engage in. It’s beautiful. I highly encourage it, for those who haven’t listened. [My personal favorite](http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3wxJu-X0zVo).

Now, Now – Threads

Eh I’ll agree with this. The album is fantastic, the art is evocative… but it’s not particularly unique or creative. I’ve listened to this album something like 3 times in a row and while I love the cover, I don’t think it’s nearly as

Com Truise – In Decay

When I met them, there were two of them… who was the other guy? Maybe he was just some guy hanging out with Com Truise, and I was confused… It was backstage on tour. I was pretty sure he was touring with him… maybe

Glasser – Ring

Really cool image. At first I thought it looked like they broke a piece of glass, painted the back of each broken shard, and then reassembled it, but now, I think it’s all just done with pigment/paint on solid surface with dust to make

Aim and Ignite – fun.

Since OP didn’t post songs, I’ll add a couple: [All the Pretty Girls](http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AIoaiTwLk6I) [At Least I’m Not As Sad (As I Used to Be)](http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nemst-oB3Po)

Weezer – Weezer (The Blue Album)

with all due respect and at the risk of an avalanche of downvotes, I feel compelled to say that this cover is pretty boring, it’s not artistic or creative or unique. It’s not gorgeous, or perplexing, or haunting, or daring, or elegant, or intricate,

Slint – Spiderland

Definitely, the remastered version also improves it a bit. I read a review that summed it up perfectly; *”Imagine for a moment that you have a favourite chair. You are very familiar with it, the shape of the back and legs, the contours of

You’ll cowards don’t even smoke crack

Exactly. Plus, it perfectly matches the name. I mean it’s definitely no great work of art, except in some bizarre ironic way, but with a name like “You’ll cowards don’t even smoke crack” it -needs- to look shitty rough quality. I like that. I

Slint – Spiderland

Fun Fact: The album’s black-and-white cover photograph, which depicts the members of the band treading water in the lake of an abandoned quarry, was taken by Will Oldham (aka Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy) Chris Gaerig of the Michigan Daily wrote, “the cover of Slint’s masterful

Nine Inch Nails “The Fragile”

I’d love to hear a graphic design geek defend/critique this cover, but I’m biased because I got into NIN when this album came out, so I’ve always loved the packaging of this album. What I *can* do is provide you with some insight into

Titus Andronicus – The Monitor

Daguerreotypes for the win! The sidebar said to throw out some of your favorite songs from the album, but to be honest the entire album is worth a listen. If you don’t mind the singer’s complete lack of any singing abilities then I can
