Guess The Iconic Album Cover – 10 Albums

Guess The Album Cover No. 1

1. Album Cover #1

The image captures a moment on a sunny day on a quiet tree-lined street. Four men in distinct outfits stride purposefully across a black and white zebra crossing, one after the other, moving from left to right.

The man leading the group is dressed in a white suit, his long hair flowing with the pace of his walk. The second man, in a black suit, follows him, his gaze fixed on the ground. The third man, barefoot and dressed in a sharp, tailored suit, strides with his hands tucked into his pockets. The last man in line is wearing denim on denim, the only one in the quartet who appears to be casually dressed.

A white Volkswagen Beetle is parked on the roadside to the left of the crossing, and a police van can be seen in the distance on the right. The background is filled with trees and a few buildings, adding an idyllic atmosphere to the scene.

2. Album Cover #2

The image features a close-up of a man’s face in high contrast colours, casting a dramatic, theatrical impression. His skin is ghostly pale, his eyes closed, while his hair and eyebrows are styled into a striking reddish-orange, evoking a sense of otherworldliness.

A vibrant lightning bolt in bold red and blue, outlined in black, diagonally bisects his face, starting from the right side of his forehead and cutting through his right eye, down to his left cheekbone. This lightning bolt, a symbol often associated with energy and power, adds a surreal and glamorous effect to the image.

His lips are opened slightly, painted a glossy, deep blue that complements the lightning bolt’s color. This high-contrast, glam image has a stark and futuristic feel, resonating with themes of theatricality, enigma, and energy.

3. Album Cover #3

The image features a sepia-toned photograph showcasing two individuals, adding a touch of vintage appeal. On the left, a tall man with a beard and hair in a ponytail stands, holding a crystal ball in his hand and his leg resting bent on a small stool. He is wearing a white shirt with a black waistcoat.

Next to the man is a woman with wavy, blonde hair cascading down her shoulders and a heavy fringe. She’s in a balletic pose with her leg bent over the man’s knee and toe pointing downwards. She is dressed in a flowing, semi-transparent, black outfit with her arm stretched out behind her.

An intriguing aspect of the image is the unusual object hanging between them, dangling down from the man’s belt – a pair of large balls connected by a cord, presumably a part of a drum kit.

4. Album Cover #4

The album cover is a striking minimalist design against a black background. The main image is a white, equilateral triangle placed near the bottom centre. From the left side of the triangle, a single, narrow beam of white light enters, symbolising the unity of all colours.

Inside the triangle, the light refracts into a spectrum of six colours, each spreading outwards in separate rays, symbolising the dispersion of light into different colours. The colours emerge from the right side of the triangle in the order of a rainbow: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and violet.

5. Album Cover #5

The album cover depicts the lower half of a man standing against a backdrop of red and white stripe flag with his back to the viewer.

The man is wearing blue jeans and a white t-shirt tucked in, with a red baseball cap tucked into the back pocket of his jeans. He wears a black buckled belt.

The man’s stance is relaxed yet confident. He stands with his body facing the flag, his right hand resting on his hip while his left hand hangs loosely by his side.

6. Album Cover #6

The image is a vibrant, animated piece of artwork full of colour and energy. It features a cartoon bear, a character of anthropomorphic features, dressed in blue jeans with a grey and white college jacket with the letter U on it in blue. The bear wears a large necklace with a gold medallion attached.  The bear is flying out of a colourful, surrealistic city below him, being propelled upwards with rings of colour behind him.

The city is depicted in the lower part of the image, with a building with columns. In front there are other anthropomorphic animals throwing black square hats into the air.

As the character ascends into the sky, he is hurtling toward a psychedelic, tie-dye swirl of colours that takes up most of the upper portion of the image. This swirling vortex has an array of colours, including hues of pink, blue, purple, and a tinge of green, giving it an almost dreamlike appearance.

7. Album Cover #7

The image is a surrealist, computer-generated sketch that gives off an eerie and dystopian feel. It’s largely composed of washed-out, muted blue tones with touches of stark white and splashes of pale reds.

The central and top portion of the artwork features an angular, almost abstract representation of a cityscape or highway system. The structures are white, against a pale blue backdrop, appearing almost ghostly and devoid of any signs of life. On the right is a blue box with a black x in the middle.

The album cover depicts a young woman with pale skin and jet black hair, the ends are blue-green. She’s dressed in an oversized white shirt, white jogging bottoms, and white socks. She sits on an oversized bed covered with white sheets and duvet. The rest of the room and the image is dark.

The most haunting element of the image is her eyes. They’re entirely white without pupils or irises, creating a sense of the supernatural, possibly even hinting at possession. She has a menacing smile on her face.

10. Album Cover #10

A woman sits on a horse that appears to be made of light – its appears glowing, almost holographic. She wears a thin metal outfit and her long waist-length hair is visible. Her arms are stretched out either side of her, one on the horses head, and the other towards its hind legs.

The horse is viewed side on and the woman sits twisted towards the camera. The background of the image is completely black focusing the entire image on the majestic stance of the woman sitting upon the shining horse.
