The one thing that gets me going just as much as listening to or playing music is the visual identity of it all – most specifically, album cover artwork. I am a sucker for a great record cover, and over the years, I have bought albums based solely on the artwork.
Though that method doesn’t always work out from an audio standpoint, it’s never a total letdown because you still have this great piece of art on your hands. This blog is a searchable database of album art porn (if you’re into that sort of thing). I can spend hours sifting through it and, although it’s not quite as updated as it once was, I think it’s worth a visit.
