Death Grips - The Money Store

Death Grips - The Money Store | album covers | Scoop.it

Thi

Max Day's insight:

This is another album that focuses on the surreal. The artwork is based on the idea of yin and yang here represented by the two abnormal figures. Death Grips is  a highly experimental band, and this image strongly reflects that.

Motorhead - Inferno

Motorhead - Inferno | album covers | Scoop.it
Max Day's insight:

Motorhead use the same primary image on all of their albums, that of the steel monster seen in this cover. This regular use of their logo means that the band has been able to establish itself well over the years and has created a well known and instantly recognizable image for themselves.

The Who - The Kids Are Alright

The Who - The Kids Are Alright | album covers | Scoop.it
Max Day's insight:

Another iconic image, this album cover focuses on a band shot. The Who were a well established band when this album came out, meaning that they would have all been instantly recognizable by fans.

Sex Pistols - Never mind the Bollocks

Sex Pistols - Never mind the Bollocks | album covers | Scoop.it
Max Day's insight:

Simple yet effective, the sex pistols album has become a cultural icon in the punk scene, using scrappy cut-out style text reflecting the rebellious and anarchic music of punk rock.

Queen - A kind of magic (single)

Queen - A kind of magic (single) | album covers | Scoop.it
Max Day's insight:

This single cover, has gone for a more cartoon-like effect. This style was a continuation of the music video where the band members all became their 'genie' counterparts surrounded by animated singers and special effects.

Maximum The Hormone - Yoshu Fukushu

Maximum The Hormone - Yoshu Fukushu | album covers | Scoop.it

This

Max Day's insight:

This album focuses on Japanese themed art. It functions almost as concept art, as we see row after row of very similar images (children at desks) which is punctuated in the middle by the child with a skull looking directly at the observer. This reflects the albums political agenda, as well as the band's extreme behaviour.

RHCP - Californication

RHCP - Californication | album covers | Scoop.it
Max Day's insight:

The Californication album is another example of how different the RHCP's style can be, with this album they focus on the surreal which is shown in the photo, where the water and the sky have been switched.

Dethklok - Dethalbum III

Dethklok - Dethalbum III | album covers | Scoop.it
Max Day's insight:

This album gives an example of more extreme artwork, showing what can be accomplished on Photoshop. The album is designed to convey a much darker tone to reflect the genre of music.
