Albums are music to one's ears and a feast for one's eyes. Though the former is self-evident, the latter is often forgotten. Album cover art is an art in its own category, not just a mere placeholder image. Over the years of modern music, there have been hundreds of memorable album covers that went along with legendary records.

So let's get into the matter of today's post. Adnan Lotia, known as uvupv on Instagram, takes his favorite music album covers and recreates them with LEGO. And if one knows anything about LEGO, it's that its simplicity is deceptive, and creating an image requires tons of effort (and some rare LEGO pieces). I don't know about you, but for me, scrolling was almost equal to listening to the songs I've come to appreciate and love. So scroll down, and enjoy the art!

But alas, those in the know in the music industry say that albums are a thing of the past, and let's blindly assume that they are, for the sake of the argument. So, no matter if they're a thing of a bygone era, one can always stroll down memory lane and listen to them as if the first time was yesterday. Great records only get better with time!

Now this kind of LEGO art doesn't come without some compromises. The well-known LEGO grid is excellent for square structures, but diagonals and curves can be a little more than tricky, so things like faces, bodies, or abstract shapes, which dominate in album art, are very hard to reproduce. Besides an artistic eye, this kind of work also requires little bit of ingenuity. If you'll look closer, you'll see bat wings, leaves, and all kinds of other groovy LEGO pieces that substitute hair, text, or other stuff.

The artist's explanation as to why he's doing it was short and sweet: “I started making album art in LEGO to honor some of my favorite musicians. I listen to the artist while I work so it’s a really enjoyable way to rediscover great music!” I, personally, have to commend the author for his good taste in music! But as we all understand, the perception of art is subjective, and different people like different things.

However, there's some truth in saying that some of these albums are objectively good since they're among the best-selling albums of all time. For example, Michael Jackson's "Thriller" is the second best-selling album ever. Fleetwood Mac's "Rumours" is 11th, Guns N' Roses' "Appetite For Destruction" is 14th, and Alanis Morissette's "Jagged Little Pill" comes 19th on the list. In other words, this list is stacked with great albums.

Her LEGO-self reminds me of how the Canadians are presented in the show "South Park".

My favorite part of this article is how worked up Mars is getting about Carson's mildly negative comments.
