Cover Me, Game Sixty-One

Miss us? The 4th of July weekend took a bit out of the hamsters that run the album art generator at Popdose HQ, so it has been a few weeks. Hopefully, I can make it up to you with this week’s super-sized edition of Cover Me.

Below are magnified fragments of album covers. Most of them are well-known albums, but there are a few obscure covers (or lesser-known albums from well-known artists) mixed in to keep you honest. You must guess both the artist and album cover. In order to keep things simple, live albums, soundtracks and singles compilations will not be used, and with all apologies to our European and Japanese friends, we are going with the covers that appeared in the US record stores…back when we had record stores. Sigh.

The rules are simple, each player can make three guesses between updates (“Update” is defined as “The time when I post a comment listing all of the covers that have been guessed correctly,” “Guess” is defined as “any attempt to identify a single cover”), so everyone will have a chance to contribute. There is no acrostic this week. Good luck!

Have fun!

    Oh, and I can't believe it took me this long – 8. is Purple Rain!

  • http://www.popdose.com Michael Parr

    Indeed! I still listen to it more than nearly any other record in my library.

  • http://www.popdose.com Michael Parr

    Yes!

  • http://www.popdose.com Michael Parr

    All I want is for someone to correctly guess number nine!

  • http://twitter.com/tcote Thierry Côté

    I figured adult alternative would mean something like Toad the Wet Sprocket, but I wasn't all that familiar with their album covers (just the spines, which I've seen in a million bargain bins) so I had to look them up – so 9. is Toad the Wet Sprocket – Fear.

    9. Toad the Wet Sprocket – Fear

  • David_E

    dammit!
