With CD’s inevitably going the way of the dinosaur, 8-tracks, cassette tapes, Blender Magazine and Crystal Clear Pepsi; CD artwork isn’t too far behind. Yes, album covers will always exist–even if they’re just reduced to being a piece of clip art on your iPod screen–but what about artwork on the CD itself?
When compact discs become obsolete, we’ll no longer have the opportunity to get creative with a four-and-half-inch, circular piece of plastic. The Yeah Yeah Yeahs will never have a chance to be pizza toppings again, as they appear on their latest release, It’s Blitz (left).
Before it’s too late, let’s honor the CD-face, and see if you can guess which disc goes with which album:
A. In Utereo, Nirvana
B. Absolution, Muse
C. Get Behind Me Satan, The White Stripes
D. Stankonia, Outkast
E. The Bouncing Souls, The Bouncing Souls
F. Hard Candy, Madonna
G. They Threw Us All In A Trench and Stuck a Monument On Top, Liars
H. The Reminder, Feist
