In my mind, one of the biggest downsides of the CD (and digital music, for that matter) is the minimization of album art. Yes, it’s still there, but in far smaller form. By way of dating myself, I can recall spending hours listening to albums (of the vinyl variety) with headphones on, lying on the living room floor. Music was my escape as a teenage kid. Tracing the embossed covers with my fingertips and staring at the huge 12 1/2″ art, I spent hour after hour staring at the elaborate designs of bands who I could only imagine (these are the pre-Internet days, mind you).
So, for this week’s puzzle, let’s pay homage to some album art. Hidden within the album titles of the eight albums above (click to embiggen!) is a wonderfully geeky saying. Your task is to identify the saying, each band, album title and what your favorite album cover of all time is (I’m just curious about the last part) to qualify for this week’s puzzle. Get your answer in before Friday night to have a chance at a $50 gift certificate from ThinkGeek. Good luck!
