Over the summer, we took it upon ourselves to conjure up a list of what we thought were the 20 most outrageous album covers from past and present. These were the records that caused blank stares for one, maybe two minutes. (Someone stared at the Embryonic cover for 30 minutes, but we won’t go into details. It’s a touchy subject). These were the album covers that made us scratch our heads. The album covers that invoked feelings of confusion, laughter, and at times queasiness.

But, of course, more than 20 outrageous album covers exist in this world — there are at least 40 — and after publishing Volume One, we set out on a mission to catalog the next set. Just as we warned you the first time, these are the bizarre, the strange, the unexplainable. Your confusion will not wane as you read on, but you’re bound to be entertained. We know we are.

Now begins your journey through another 20 baffling album covers. As always, please list anything you think we missed in the comments section. Who knows: we may have enough for a third volume.

There is an obvious similarity between the cover of “Hello Nasty” and “30 Χρονια Επιτυχιες” by the Greek hip-hop group Ημισκουμπρια (Imiskoumbria). The difference is that Imiskoumbria’s record was released two years before Hello Nasty. Check this link for the cover:

e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you! Excellent blog by the way!

It. , Charleston, SC: 15. Somehow having their own space eases the separation anxiety that most dogs experience.
