Does it, and if it does, example?

It happens to me alot. Like certain colours or designs are attached to albums. Like whenever i hear something from black sails in the sunset by AFI i immediatly think of pirates and orange and black.

But unfortunatly, i find it hard to get into albums that have crappy art.

A bit. They certainly make first impressions on me in the store and I usually visualize the music going along with an image in my head that somewhat relates to the album art.

Yeah it does- I don't buy albums that have shit art.

A little. If I don't think it's very good then I don't have high expectations for the music.

It doesn't affect the music for me but for me to call something my favorite album it has to be good as a package, album art and all.


Not that I buy many albums anyway.

I think it's more important now to have original artwork and packaging especially since most people download albums illegaly. Having said that, artwork has never really influenced me to buy an album, it is cool to have a decent package though like the special edition of Watershed by Opeth.

Sadly it does. If I don't like the album art I don't get the album I hate that I feel that way.

Well I end up associating them a little, but it doesn't affect how I hear the music. And I often hear music without seeing the art, so obviously it's not a big factor.
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.

I'm usually surprised at how little an album's artwork resembles my mental image of the music. I think I end up associating images that I see when I'm listening to songs with the songs, like when I used to walk home from school I'd listen to certain music more than others, and now I think of walking down that road on a sunny day when I listen to certain music. I think Led Zeppelin 1 is pretty much all that image.
#32
Yup

The back of In Utero by Nirvana has fetus's all over it.

All i can think of when listening to it is "Fetus me, fetus me, my friend, fetus meeee... fetus me, again.... Am i a small small fetus? IiIi AM I A SMALL, SMALL FETUS?!!?"

A little. I like when albums have good art, but it doesn't really affect my perception of the music itself.

I do appreciate when an album's artwork helps to convey the feel/message of the album.
Buy it. Load it. Shoot it.
