  • How Many Album Covers Do You Recognize?



    Mostly pop albums but how many can you name?

  • Ummmm yes and no, Some are familiar but they are pop albums mostly...


    Basement Jaxx - The Singles?

    Coldplay - Viva la Vida

    The two in the lower corners seem familiar...

  • Is the one in the bottom left-hand corner Air's Pocket Symphony?

    Just out of curiosity (and because I don't want to hijack the thread) can we majke and post our own album cover collages? I thought it would be fun to make some obscure generalized or genre-specific ones :D

    I'm quite convinced that's the BSB one.

    I rather enjoy music album mosaics so I thought I would contribute. Did not know what to use for a meta-image so I just went with a standard windows desktop photo. Cannot go wrong with penguins, I suppose. Click on it to be able to zoom in!

    Recognize any? I had to drop the quality to upload it so it should be just blurry enough to make sport of identification.

    [Edit] If anyone really likes this, I can make one of the image of your choosing.

    I'd prefer if we'd stick with the 9 covers and only a ninth of the cover.
    1. It's easier to say which album cover you're talking about if you want to uncover a solution.
    2. It's a bigger challenge to recognize a part of a cover instead of the whole thing.

    Everyone is correct! Fabulous prizes* to everyone! :D

    I'll leave this open for a while in-case somebody recognizes the other six.

    This is awesome Salt :) I might not be able to pinpoint the exact the location of each cover for you ("the left-to-the-power-of-70 from the bottom-to-the-power-of-239"... ;p) but I can give a brief list of the embarrassingly obvious ones I've seen.

    In The Aeroplane Over The Sea by Neutral Milk Hotel
    Debut by Bjork
    Employment by Kaiser Chiefs
    Skelethon by Aesop Rock
    Classics by Ratatat
    Antidotes by Foals
    The Stand Ins by Okkervil River
    Funeral by Arcade Fire
    Speak For Yourself by Imogen Heap
    Moderat self-titled
    Bloodflowers by The Cure
    Vampire Weekend self-titled
    Aldhils Arboretum by of Montreal
    I, Vigilante by Crippled Black Phoenix
    Kverletak self-titled
    Django Django self-titled
    Deep Cuts by The Knife
    () by Sigur Rós
    Our Endless Numbered Days by Iron & Wine
    Metals by Feist

    Keeping track of the score may prove the hardest part of this game! :3

    * There might not actually be any fabulous prizes.

  • Here are the answers to my little composite cover, in case you actually care... :p

    (top left) A Garland Of Song by The Owl Service
    (middle left) Pakistan Military Academy by Vatican Shadow
    (bottom left) We Are Him by Angels of Light
    (top middle) Cup by Part Chimp
    (middle) Quality Time by Whitehouse
    (bottom middle) Australasia by Pelican
    (top right) Baalstorm, Sing Omega by Current 93
    (middle right) Dopethrone by Electric Wizard
    (bottom right) Church Of Acid by Velvet Acid Christ

    I might have to make another.

    I can say those are all correct, though. I know it was not really in line with the thread but as it was sadly without many posts I thought it close enough to find a warm welcome. I like to see if I can get from any album on the leftmost side to any album on the rightmost side, moving orthoganally (no diagonals) to adjacent tiles where I can name both artist and album.....anyway.
