The Album Art Challenge: Week 004

hink you got what it takes? Try to identify these ten album covers, from which all easily erasable identifying marks have been expunged, and you’ll win your very own mixtape from a Stylus writer. That’s right, it’s Stylus’ newest weekly feature: the album art challenge.

All you, the reader, has to do, is identify the artist and title of each work below and send the results here with the subject line Album Art Challenge Week XXX. Can’t identify all of them? No worries. Each week there will be a winner. It will be the one who comes up with the most out of the ten selected covers by next Wednesday at 12 AM, no matter how few that may end up being.

What’s the prize? The winner will receive a personalized mixtape from the Stylus writer of their choice. After next week’s contest has been announced, they will be e-mailed by our prize committee. Good luck!
