No. Just...no.

I've spent five years of my life trying to invent an anal bum cover, failing to do so is my greatest regret.

Art is in the eye of the beholder, but there are is a ton of "art" in the world that just farking baffles me. Plus, there are a ton "artists" that just seem to repackage existing stuff and call it original.

Careful with that Master of Puppets cover - Metallica isn't afraid to lawyer up.

The 3D doll of the Rush 2112 album guy is not something you want to pay to see.

It was a decent idea, but the execution kinda sucked.
 
2014-04-13 05:55:16 PM
That was a lot of time and effort invested in a gimmicky idea. The artist should be able to get a job at the Onion, where they specialize in that.

Its been done:

Ditto on the "decent idea, meh results" reaction. And one more gripe: Pink Floyd already DID a flip of their DSotM album cover. It's the album's back cover, with the rainbow passing through a prism and (physically impossibly) coming out as the beam of light, thus making a loop. So that entry was especially unnecessary.

Yup.

Gimmicks always suck. When a TV show does them it means the writers have already used all their good ideas, and so must now resort to something from left field to give the appearance of originality.

If I could only photoshop, I'd do the Beatles White Album.

It might be a good concept....IF they got someone creative to make them.

"Oooo....I know, I'm gonna put a stick of Teen Spirit deodorant in the water because there's a song on the album called "Smells Like Teen Spirit". I'm so witty."

And why would you give Ziggy/Bowie a neck tattoo spelling out the pun of the album name?

Like I said, someone creative might actually make something halfway decent.

Don Martin was ahead of his time.

I've already seen what most of those albums look like from behind. Here's Dark Side, for example.

Uninspired work. Interesting concept that could have had some comedic effect, but utterly wasted by a dullard of an artist.
 
2014-04-13 06:47:32 PM
Well that was a waste of internet.

Nix Nightbird: Uninspired work. Interesting concept that could have had some comedic effect, but utterly wasted by a dullard of an artist.


My thinking was more along the lines of "interesting concept but the payoff isn't worth the effort." I don't think there's much more than a few chuckles to be had no matter the artist. Even the same concept applied to great works of art wouldn't amount to much more.
 
2014-04-13 07:43:25 PM
The Master of Puppets thing was neat. Seeing the arms dangling from the sky and holding a Metallica logo for no reason really diminishes the impact of the cover image.
 
2014-04-13 08:03:31 PM
I would like to see him do Sgt. Pepper's.

One of my favorite album covers:
fanart.tv

Trivia: The waitress is Kate Murtagh, who played "Mom" in the movie "Doctor Detroit"

Let's see this guy do THAT one.

Another idea is so-called alternative album covers...
One that I liked was from the single for "It's Raining Again":
thumbs4.ebaystatic.com

And its NSFW! alternative is here.

I'd think you'd have more fun making your own concept of the album cover.

If you look at it backwards it "predicts" 9/11. WHY DO YOU HATE FREEDOM!?

And if you PLAY it backwards, it will give you every superfecta for the Kentucky Derby through 2021.

My mom had that album. In retrospect it's kind of funny, back in the early 90s my brother copied some Christian rock album for a friend and filled in the extra space on the tape by copying Whipped Cream and Other Favorites too.

I loved Supertramp back in the day. Especially "Even in the Quietest Moments" and "Crime of the Century"

What about that Pink Floyd poster with the different album covers on the naked ladies' backs? I probably wouldn't mind seeing that from the front.

The Back Catalog? (probably NSFW)

That would be pretty interesting.

There's a parody out there of that with Salma Hayek covered in the whipped cream. I cannot post it here as I am at work but trust me it is worth the GIS
