Guess the Album Cover

Post by Chrill »

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.

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.

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...
