They stopped numbering Star Trek movies after the sixth one, so if I’m to continue this series I’ll need a new franchise to pay homage to in my titles. What goes beyond six movies, though? The Fast and the Furious series? I love action movies, but I’ve never been won over by Vin Diesel. I’ll … Continue reading Alternate Album Cover Art VI: The Undiscovered Variant
Sorry, I couldn’t help but sneak a Star Trek reference into the title. There’s plenty of these cases to go over. If you’re not sure what I do with these things, I basically explore albums from various genres and highlight artists that have made bold, interesting, pointless, well-needed, or idiotic changes to their album art … Continue reading Alternate Album Cover Art V: The (Not-So) Final Frontier
There doesn’t seem like much to do as a music fan these days. Thankfully, I can still order albums over the internet, though the stacks of them flooding my modest apartment make me look much like a hoarder.

There’s no rule book when it comes to their conception, legal issues notwithstanding (see Van Morrison’s recent Roll with The Punches). Most music fans will tell you that not all album covers are created equally, the most intricate of which could rival the … Continue reading Album Covers To Experience
No need for a long-winded explanation of this post (see my first edition of this series here). I’m back with five more album cover variations I have encountered while exploring different musical avenues, so I’ll get right to it. Genesis - From Genesis To Revelation Even though I own From Genesis To Revelation, I often … Continue reading Alternate Album Cover Art II
While I consider myself an album collector, it’s a rare case that I purchase multiple copies of the same album. I’ll usually grab the first copy of the album I can get my hands on, but this doesn’t always go so well. When an album has been out for several years, it will often get … Continue reading Alternate Album Cover Art
