Top 10 Music Album Covers Featuring Buildings


The Contenders: Page 3

41 Animals - Pink Floyd
42 Shades of Purple - M2M

Just saw there's a building in the background on the left.

The cover is decent. It doesn't look set up in any way, it's just those two girls walking on the sidewalk. It fits the tone of the music, which is just as pure and honest.
(That's one of my favorite music albums by the way) - Martin_Canine

43 Significant Other - Limp Bizkit

This cover artwork is the definition of the turn of the millennium. This guy's dresding style, the cap, the jacket, and the throwsers, the cartoon/comic look of the artwork, the font in the band's logo that remotely looks like flames. It's everything that would make a 90s or early 2000s kid say "Woah, awesome! "

I never got why the band is hated in the US. Their music sounds just like that. And that's woah awesome. - Martin_Canine

44 Soundso - Wir Sind Helden

I don't know if you also know this carpets for children's room that depict the bird's eye view of a city so they can play with a toy car on them... but this what this cover reminds me of.
It's another member of the "not bad but not memorable" section. - Martin_Canine

45 Stadtaffe - Peter Fox

According to my German friend, this album perfectly captures the feeling of being and living in Berlin. That's probably what the cover depicts as well: just Peter Fox standing somewhere in Berlin. - Martin_Canine

46 Tha Carter - Lil Wayne

I must say even though I am one of the few TopTenners who like Lil Wayne - I mean seriously what other American rapper makes such a use of puns while having such a raspy voice - I like this cover artwork more than the album. The big cityscape in the evening looks very classy and would set the tone more for a soul than a hip hop record.
The album itself is okay but Wayne hasn't found his distinctive style yet. - Martin_Canine

47 The World of Ch!pz - Ch!pz

It's a bubblegum dance album and that's just what the cover looks like. In this case and genre I even like that it looks so cheaply animated and the fact that the Eiffel Tower seems to be just a few minutes away from the Statue of Liberty, as this goofiness is exactly what the genre is about.
I just wonder how they get off the platform, as they appear to be surrounded by waterfalls. How did they even get up there in the first place? - Martin_Canine

48 The End of the World Party - I See Stars

I.. Love. This. Album. Cover.

I mean it's a neon colored rave, the font looks futuristic and it's all set in space. Okay, poor Earth is about to get destroyed by comets, but even they appear to have neon colors. It's a stylish neon overdose. Me likey.

I assume those things to the left and the right are futuristic buildings, but if I'm wrong, Planet Earth is also on the cover featuring millions of buildings. - Martin_Canine

49 The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars - David Bowie

I love these covers that are set at night in the city and actually look more cozy and friendly than dark and dangerous. This and Nena's "Eisbrecher" have the same tone and actually feels quite inviting exploring the nightlife wherever those covers are set. - Martin_Canine

50 To Pimp a Butterfly - Kendrick Lamar

Can an album cover be any more controversial without ever being considered controversial?
The artwork looks cool. You immediately know the artist has something to say.

About the album, I may be the only one who considers this his weakest one. Not exactly because of him, but because of the beat work is overly complicated and sometimes takes much liberty with rhythm and sound. The German influence on me wants more musical order. - Martin_Canine

51 Under the Radar Over the Top - Scooter

I don't know where this is set, I assume somewhere in Germany, but like Peter Fox's "Stadtaffe", I love how it depicts just everyday city life during the day. - Martin_Canine
