Battle of the... Iconic Album Covers

Postby mr cambo » Mon Jan 23, 2012 10:17 am

Welcome to the first battle of 2012 - the iconic album cover.

But what is an iconic cover... I guess we all have our own views on that?

Anyway, we have a preliminary round first to get us to 16 albums. 8 have been seeded, the remaining 8 will come from this preliminary phase.

Enjoy!

The Beatles – Abbey Road vs Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band

The Arctic Monkeys – Whatever People Say, That’s What I’m Not vs The Stone Roses – The Stone Roses

Crass – Christ the Album vs The Damned – Damned Damned Damned

Julian Cope – Fried vs The Velvet Underground – The Velvet Underground & Nico

I'm guessing we are purely voting on the covers, not the content therefore

1. Abbey Road
2. (don't thinkl either are 'iconic' but) Stone Roses
3. Christ the album
4. Velvet underground

I guess it's a personal choice whether the music influences your view as to whether an album cover is more iconic because of the content, but the covers are obviously key.

Results:

Abbey Road 7 - 0 Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band

Whatever People Say, That’s What I’m Not 1 - 6 The Stone Roses

Christ the Album 3 - 4 Damned Damned Damned

Fried 0 - 7 The Velvet Underground & Nico

Next set in the preliminary round coming shortly...

Meat is Murder
Overkill (although you really need to see Carcass up close to appreciate it. Our Price deemed it too horrific to display so it was an under the counter purchase)
Is This It?
Dark Side of the Moon
