I know you’re not supposed to judge a book by its cover, but 2011 had quite a few releases that intrigued me to listen based on album art alone. Often the music was a let-down compared to the beautiful art encasing it, but on rare occasion the music stood up on its own to complete the perfect pair of visual and aural imagery. So, just for fun, I’ve compiled a list of my favorite 15 album covers from 2011, to complete my year-end coverage (although I do have a nice surprise in store for my fellow list-lovers out there.) Criteria for the list include both ability for the art to capture the feeling of the music and pure aesthetic quality. Some interesting patterns: most of this art is very minimal, or blue-colored, or both. Also, breasts and cleavage were quite popular this year, as were cute dogs.
