They were doing this silly game at HG so I figured I might as well try it here since the forum is kinda slow. The image has parts of album covers, you identify them. Whoever identifies the most wins. First person to post the answer gets it. They are all from the late 80's or later. None of the albums were top 40 stuff, but the bands are all mildly popular, at least within their respective subgenre. Most are not bands on the local clear channel stations, but there are a couple exception. They are of the pop/rock/metal/punk/folk variety, with a slight bias toward indie pop. All are bands/artists that I like, if that helps.

If anyone wants to make their own and post it, feel free.



Ones identified so far, and who got them:
1. In Flames - Jester Race (Zippo)
2. The Appleseed Cast - Two Conversations (Zippo)
3. The Decemberists - Her Majesty (Robert)
4. Regina Spektor - Soviet Kitsch (kayte)
5. Sufjan Stevens - Greetings from Michigan: The Great Lake State (Zippo)
6. Arcade Fire - Funeral (kayte)
7. Godspeed You Black Emperor - Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas to Heaven (Ampitheatre)
8. They Might Be Giants - Flood (kayte)
9. Death Cab for Cutie - Transatlanticism (Robert)
10. The Mars Volta - Frances the Mute (Ampitheatre)
11. Blood Brothers - Burn Piano Island Burn (Ampitheatre)
12. Sunny Day Real Estate - Diary (Ampitheatre)
13. Neutral Milk Hotel - In the Aeroplane Over the Sea (Zippo)
14. Iron & Wine - The Creek Drank the Cradle (Zippo)
15. Sigur Ros - ( ) (Zippo)
16. The Pogues - If I Should Fall From Grace With God (Bebop)
17. TV on the Radio - Desperate Youth, Bloodthirsty Babes (Ampitheatre)
18. The Shins - Oh, Inverted World (Ampitheatre)
19. Opeth - Blackwater Park (ice)
20. The Ataris - End Is Forever (Ampitheatre)

17 is TV on the Radio's Desperate Youth, Bloodthirsty Babes.
18 is The Shins' Oh Inverted World.

Those are the only I know, but this is a really cool idea.

And with that, you're in the lead. No one has gotten the most popular album on there.

That wasn't the one I was referring to, but 19 is also a very popular album within its subgenre.

Hint for number two: I just got home from seeing them play. Not that that will actually help you unless you remember where I live and have the motivation to do some hunting.

Only two left. Oddly enough, they are possibly the most popular two (which is why I cropped number 9 very tightly).

Hints:
9 is a band that is incredibly popular right now, and this was sorta the album that catapulted them to such popularity. It's indie pop-rock, but on their latest album (the one after this one) the term indie no longer applies.

19 is metal, of a sort.

Haha, did you actually check to see who was playing in Gainesville last night?

I'll do one now, but it'll be pretty easy. I've documented most of the music I like on this forum so it won't be hard to find out k



1. Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds - Abbotoir Blues / The Lyre of Orpheus
2.
3. Ministry - The Dark Side of the Spoon
4. Pixies - Surfer Rosa
5. Nine Inch Nails - The Downward Spiral
6. Marilyn Manson - Antichrist Superstar
7.
8. The Rolling Stones - Sticky Fingers
9.
10. My Bloody Valentine - Isn't Anything
11
12. Front Line Assembly - Artificial Soldier
13.
14. Coil - How To Destroy Angels
15.

I'll add these scores onto the other ones (later)

emtilt - 7
Bon - 1
Ampitheatre - 1
Sukkit - 1
Tiger (obviously)
