Hodge Podge
This is a grouping of albums that don't really fit in with the genres I'm most familiar with but deserve to be plugged in this thread.

Re: The Art of the Album

Winter is slowly moving in and on another forum the idea of music for specific seasons came up. Theres a handful of albums that only make full sense to me when its dark early, snow covers everything in sight and the atmosphere is eerie, harsh but strangely beautiful.
these are my go-to winter albums

Re: The Art of the Album

The Big Four
If you were considered a 'banger' back in the eighties it was pretty standard that these four groups were at the very core with everything else being either lighter or heavier. I'll only post albums not already in the thread.

Re: The Art of the Album

Totally slacked off on this thread. Better add a new entry before one of the mods wipes it out on me.

More Rap
There was a lot of great rap/hip-hop discussion in the WF Greatest Rapper tourney threads. Was a lot of fun and great to see what others think about hip hop's greats. Listened to Eric B and Rakim today too, great record.

Re: The Art of the Album

Here are a couple of sets from some all-time fav bands with discography depth.

Sabbath
Love the crunch, stoner feel and blues-rock influence. Speaking of influential, I remember a quote along the lines of `Sabbath already wrote every great riff`. Older material is better...Tony Martin sucks IMO.



Floyd
What can you say bout these guys, not everyone`s cup of tea. I`m personally more of a Roger Waters guy based on the type of songs he wrote but Dave Gilmour has some amazing chops despite being a pompous ass sometimes. Love me some Pink Floyd.



R.A.M.O.N.E.S.
Another band not only highly influential to music in general but an inspiration to myself.



Between work and family it`s hard to find time to update the thread, but I do plan on adding more posts as soon as time permits.

Great album covers

What are some of your favourite album covers? Don't mind the music inside, just the cover art or packaging.

Here are some good ones:

Re: The Art of the Album

I decided to merge threads because some great album covers were posted in the initial thread. I will continue with this artistic cover:


Yeezus - Kanye West

Gotta love the minimalist approach.


Much gratitude to

Re: The Art of the Album







I find metal is the only genre that still tends to have amazing covers... but then they still design with vinyl in mind I think. I have most of these in vinyl as well as CD and digital. And they are amazing to look at.

Thanks for the wonderful memories Ultimate Warrior... happy you got to be recognised as the legend you are before you went. Rest in peace


Raw is like watching Dexter's finale every week... why did I do that to myself for so long?
