    Excellent work!


    VERY NICE! hmm seems familiar




    Also Dig me out by Sleater Kinney (fantastic album, personally against the reunion because the woods was perfect) is a lot like that kinks album, but that's obviously intentional

    To me, "The Downward Spiral" and "Passion" are very similar covers, obviously they are picturing different thing but the techniques involve in making them look very similar to me, even that pale yellowish color looks taken from the same "store", of course i love both albums and musically they are very different... (or maybe not so much?)

    Parodies I know but why not? These are like the only two albums (to my immediate recollection) that even match the covers of others.

    @Sutekh I think it's just openly known as a fact that Mechanical Animals is, in almost every way, across all videos and artwork, Bowie influenced beyond belief.

    Poe's Haunted always seemed like a pretty clear homage to Hunky Dory to me:





    Radiohead's Amnesiac and Interpol's Turn On the Bright Lights always felt similar:





    Radiohead's best of cover reminds me a lot of Wish You Were Here, and in turn it's taken from an image in the OK Computer artwork:





    Astrea Corp's Panther Modern EP and Kanye West's Yeezus:





    And to a lesser extent with those two, Silent Shout by The Knife:

    The Dillinger Escape Plan - One Of Us Is The Killer and The Ghost Inside - Dear Youth

    While I like both albums, how is this not a rip off of Dillinger's cover.

    And Dillinger even gave them crap about it but moved on and told fans to chill and congratulated TGI for making a good album. Shocked but golf clap for DEP for being the bigger man.
