Top 30 Album Art Designs of 2011-2016

Some of you might be wondering, who notices album art these days? This day and age album art is nothing but a small thumbnail on your iTunes that serves no purpose other than identifying the song/album currently playing on your playlist. However, for someone that roams around music stores buying CDs based on their covers, album art is as important to me as the music I will be listening to – sometimes even more important.

Today I bring you a carefully curated selection of some of the coolest, most visually appealing and eye-catching album art designs from years 2011-2016 so far – in no particular order.
