Greatest Album Covers Ever!

Nov 15 2009

Posted by:

Every once in a while an artist comes out with an album cover that puts most other album covers to shame. Well, today is your lucky day, as I have gathered together a few of these works of art for your viewing pleasure.

What a great album cover. It reads “THANK YOU FOR THE DOVE”. You’re welcome Mr. Adkins but I did not give you a dove. How perplexing. Stop being so silly Mike, if that is your real name.

So I enjoyed these album covers so much that I felt the need to become a part of them. So I photoshopped my face into them. Check it out!

Yeah, I like it too. I’m pretty awesome at handling doves as you can see from the photo above. I would like to thank whoever gave me that dove. You are a great human. Thanks for the dove dude. Onto the next album cover.

In case anyone was not aware, Ken is by request only. The other day I tried to put Ken on my playlist, wouldn’t let me. Request only. That’s just how Ken rolls, and I respect him for it, I really do, but come on Ken, Request only? Seriously? Ever since you grew that mustache, the power has gone straight to your head.

Now prepare yourself, for Richard Bergeron will assume the role of Ken in a flash of photo editing magic.

What’s that you ask? Why does it still say by request only even though I just gave Ken the 3rd degree over that? Well, it’s the album title and I respect Ken too much to change it. If I didn’t respect Ken so much, I would change it to “not just by request anymore”, but I do respect Ken, a lot, and so it will remain by request only. In any case, its time to move onto another masterpiece.

Orion is back on top with his new album, Reborn. I never lost faith in Orion, not even when he started wearing that ridiculous mask. I told him, I said, “Orion, when you wear that mask, I can’t take you seriously. Also, it makes me want to punch you in the face, but I’ll be damned if you don’t top the charts next month!” Suffice it to say, he kept wearing the mask, and boy did it pay off. Congrats Orion, you earned it!

Now again, I will assume the roll of Orion. Prepare yourself!

If you look closely you can see that I have decided to go with snowboarding goggles instead of a mask. I just wanted to do my own thing, you know? Be my own man. I also wanted to avoid face punches, but that is pretty much negligible.

Maybe one day in the distant future, I will not have to post my face into someone elses album cover, but rather I will be featured on the album cover with my band mates. I foresee this cover involving bubbles. A bubble party so to speak. It will be grand.

Sad Art Bands

Apr 13 2009

Why do so many bands do photos like these:

What exactly are they trying to say? “We are so emotional. We don’t care about anything but we care about everything. Don’t look at us, and we won’t look at you. We like to hang out together in stylish clothing and act like we aren’t hanging out together.”

I really detest these sort of album photos. When I buy an album, which is rare thanks to torrents, I don’t want to see artsy pics of band members being total douche bags. I mean, is that really how they act? I am fairly certain they are just doing it for the camera, and then when they are off camera, they actually hang out together.

I won’t rant too much about them, but at this time I would like to showcase a couple of photos that me and few friends made in honor of the great Sad Art Bands.

In this photo, me (left), Matek (center), and Sarah (right), show case our abilities to ignore each other and the camera. We like to stand around on the rocks at the beach and think about life and how tragic it is. I stand with my arms to the side like that because it puts me off balance and I am a risk taker.

Matek is replaced by Amy in this photo. Matek had to go off camera because he became too sad to make art. This picture was taken in colour but we are all so drained of life that it drained the colour from the photo as well. I hope one day we will find our way in this tragic unforgiving world.
