I just wanted to share with a you an uber sweet list I found on Gigwise - Top 20 Album Covers of 2009.
The closer we get to the new year, I will probably be sharing many top-something or other of 2009 lists.
Before mp3 players came around, I definately had a bit of a hobby of collecting album covers. I was already very much into music and buying CD's with every extra penny I made. I was an organized child so all of my CD's were filed alphabetically and by genre in a nice and tidy CD binder. I wouldn't throw away the CD covers though, I would tape them to my wall to show them off. Before long, friends and family would give me their covers and it grew into quite the collection. I was very proud.
I don't do that anymore, and I don't even remember to look at the album covers that come with downloaded albums. The cover scrolling thing ipod does really irritates me. It's nice to know the art is still alive...so here goes. Enjoy.
