Guess the Album Cover

Well, this is a game I've played with a few friends online recently. It's very simple, you pick a rather famous album cover and shrink it down to 15-25 pixels in Paint, then resize back up to its original size. Then, you let people take a guess.

I'll post three albums to get us going, feel free to contribute with your own albums but also try to guess the existing one so as to not flood this with lots of unknown albums :P

That's 2 out of 3, very well done.

The missing album is made by a British band, released I believe in 2013.

As a wee clue, they're all solo artists (bonus points for each one's real name as well as stage name!).

I think the bottom is Tori Amos - Little Earthquakes. The middle is not something I know.

It is!

Do we want a clue for the middle one?

Well, the middle one is Hunky Dory by David Bowie (real name David Jones). For the record (no pun intended!) Tori is really Ms. Myra Ellen Amos.

Well, the third looks like it could be one of the led zeppelin covers.

The first is Bad by Michael Jackson, the second is The Best of Blur. The third I half recognise but can't think what it is. The last one looks like something by The White Stripes...
