^ This soundtrack was on Beyoncé's Wikipedia page and I assumed that her voice is on it and Beyoncé herself charted.

ROUND 18 - Results

Covers not guessed by everyone are worth points: e.g., 13 out of 16 (83 %) guessed #04 right; that means you get 100-83=17 points for that. To avoid draw positions in the ranking, I gave +1 point per weekday left until deadline.

14 participants this week!


#01 Madonna - Like A Prayer
29 points
Image Image

#02 Bon Jovi - Keep The Faith
21 points

#03 Goldfrapp - Felt Mountain

Photobucket is not responding. Images will hopefully appear later.

Can someone try to open Photobucket and see if it works? I wonder if it is only me.

ROUND 19

I adjusted deadline to next Monday.

Round 18 is related to this week's UK top 100 album and single chart. Most commonly, the album covers to be found are from artists that are present in the newest top 100.

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 by sharing the answers with the others in this thread.

Google Images won't find them for you, I checked all covers.


#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 Monday, 6 p.m. The points for each recognized album cover show up after the deadline; they correspond with the percentage of posters who don't know the answer. To avoid ties, earlier posts get little more points, e.g., answers from Monday get +7 points, Tuesday +6 points etc.
