The Contenders: Page 2

21 Dystopia - Megadeth
22 Hotel California - The Eagles
23 Theater of Salvation - Edguy
24 Metal Church - Wayne
25 Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow - Rainbow
26 The Marshall Mathers LP 2 - Eminem
27 Fashionably Late - Falling In Reverse
28 Abigail II: The Revenge - King Diamond
29 Der Junge Von Damals - Kay One

Way in the background there's a house. Maybe where he came from.

I like this cover art. The color scheme is almost sepia. Other covers with similar scenaries always look hot. But here, the focus is not on the outer circumstances like heat, it's on how long the way he has been walking is. And we can assume he'll go on for much longer.
In the past, Kay One's image was one of luxury: gold chains, thrones, champain, cocaine, parties, and more. He made mediocre party pop rap back then. This album cover is a heavy contrast to that. Also, he makes much more varied hip hop music now. I think this artwork is symbolic for that he has not forgotten where he came from and that it was a hard way (album title translates to "the boy from back then"). - Martin_Canine

30 Eisbrecher - Nena

This cover looks like it's not intended to be a cover. It looks more like a behind the scenes photo you would find in a booklet. The band simply stands in a city at night. That's it.
I like it still. Because it feels cozy. - Martin_Canine

31 Final Attraction - Cinema Bizarre

You know, the style is cool. This is a band whose members met at an anime convention, that's exactly what they look like and it's only fitting that the cover looks like out of a SciFi flick. Such things have been extremely popular over here since the turn of the millennium, and rightfully so. But this is executed so cheap and so obviously animated. The city looks like something out of a 90s bubblegum dance video - which is absolutely unfitting for the soft and dreamy electronic music they make. - Martin_Canine

32 Graduation - Kanye West

I have no idea what this cover depicts other than the bear, bit on that living planet thingy there appears to be some greek temple.
Kanye West is by the way the best proof that I don't judge books - or albums - by their covers. Because Kanye's covers are always on the hyper pretentious side of art, and I am still a fan. - Martin_Canine

33 Here and Now - Nickelback

Why are Nickelback album covers always so unpersonal and exchangable? Roads, a belt, more roads, the world, a bridge, more roads. Feed the Machine, The State and Silver Side Up are memorable covers. The resr, and that includes this one is absolutely mediocre. Like, absolutely not outstanding in the least. Neither positive nor negative. This here could be a pre-installed desktop saver. - Martin_Canine

34 Follow the Reaper - Children of Bodom
35 Hoodtape Vol. 2 - Kollegah Hoodtape Vol. 2 - Kollegah

It is a bonus disc in the "Imperator" deluxe box and more like a collection of musical comedy sketches in heavy contrast to the dark and well thougt out main album, so I really shouldn't complain. It's an animated depiction of "Kolle's Hood", and looks like a screenshot of the newest Grand Theft Auto game. It's okay. At least it's animated throughout snd doesn't have Kollegah photoshopped into it. - Martin_Canine

36 Pins and Needles - The Birthday Massacre

Okay, maybe not all look the same. This album leaves out he child like elements, and elegantly embrace the morbid and necromantic. - Martin_Canine

37 Instinct - NIIC Instinct - NIIC

Not at all outstanding. There's his logo emerging from the ground in a city. It's not really an eye catcher but it's not bad. It's just completely exchangable. - Martin_Canine

38 Just Be Free - Christina Aguilera

I don't know why, but this artwork looks like something from the 70s or 80s. Maybe it's the basic font, maybe the blue color on top, maybe it's the picture of Aguilera herself and the angle in which it is filmed.
On my CD copy, the blue is black for whatever reason.
Not bad. Has that certain oldschool charm. - Martin_Canine

39 New York, New York: His Greatest Hits - Frank Sinatra

One word: Classy. - Martin_Canine

40 No Fixed Address - Nickelback

It's Planet Earth so basically it depicts millions of buildings.

For info on my opinion see "Here and Now". - Martin_Canine
