Following Season 1 by ThomyX and Season 2 by Sinnec, I 'll continue this game and give it a new twist. I post pictures of whole album covers that are distorted or alienated to some extend so that they cannot be found by Google Images. Each round has no special theme but is somehow related to the most recent UK top 40 album chart. Most commonly, the covers to be found are from artists that are present in the newest top 40.


ROUND 1


Your task: Try to identify the ten albums by their alienated cover art. If you think you know the answers, PM me with both the artists and the album titles. Please, don't ruin the game with sharing the answers with the others in the topic.


#01 Image #02 Image
#03 Image #04 Image
#05 Image #06 Image
#07 Image #08 Image
#09 Image #10 Image



If you think you know some or all of the answers, PM me with both the artists and the album titles. Deadline is Sunday, 6 p.m. I'm curious about the difficulty level of this round.

You're doing great. It should be hard, what's the use if everyone got them all? Anyway, one of you got them all already, but knowing half of them is not bad. Keep posting your results.
..and maybe the hint I gave you helps a bit?

11 participants so far. You've still got time until Sunday 11 a.m.

Two covers turned out to be easier than I thought, and two seem to be very difficult. I will calculate an alternative point system based on the results to reflect this.

And... please give me feedback! :P

I love the alternative point system: points for each cover are calculated this way: 100% - (% of correct answers). It does not change much so far, only the two at the bottom swap places. And the great thing at the moment is: if you only know two covers (namely the most difficult ones), you'll be top 5 for sure!

16 answers. Come on, last chance for round 1. I can smell this will be a great game. If you don't join now you may have a hard time catching up with the others in round 2 - send me a PM with your guesses even if you only know few for now. :) :)

18 voters now. Two more please, 20 participants would be amazing.

I extended the deadline to Sunday 6 p.m. because I can't update it earlier. Round 2 will be up on late Sunday night.

I spent 6 weeks at No. 11 :o .
I feel like Kesha's Blow or Adele's SFTTR in the UK :lol: ... Always soooo close but still not top 10 :x !

EDIT: Could it be that my run is wrong?
Looking at the first round's result, I spent at least 2 weeks in the top 5...
