best jrock cd cover

Recommended Posts

i couldn't find this topic. if it exists feel free to close as necessary.

i know there's a "worst jrock cd cover" thread, but how about best? 
spreading those positive vibes.

one of my favourites has always been protoplasm by rentrer en soi. i've always dug the photo, and ryo's heels tbh. also i think this is when they first stylized their logo differently, and i stan (stun?)

another gem is 4u -mary gold- by d'air. it's pretty simplistic but i've always found it endearing. their covers kind of went downhill from here tbqh but the bops forever remain.

for something more current, i'm really digging the inferiority complex and narcissism cover by rands. i think the overall design is pretty gorgeous. kinda wishing they had done it in a digipak format, though.

Really always enjoyed Moran's single/album covers. I love their L'oiseau blue single and their All Time Best album covers.

Also thought of Kagrra's last album. Beautiful and enticing to look at its duality theme (between the two different versions).

Was actually gonna mention Moran. Their album covers are gorgeous :)

I also like the limited edition version of the GazettE's Beautiful Deformity.

If I think of any more, I'll mention them.

For some reason I'm really attracted to stylish/stylized covers featuring only band members so here's a batch reflecting that.

 

BUCK-TICK - 悪の華

devils in bedside

There's an ominous calm about the cover and it's just really hard to tell what the music will sound like. You just have to listen to find out.

Coll:Set

I love the imagery and theme here and how a spectrum of darks and lights are achieved using different intensities of blue.

 

 

R-5678339-1399703105-1260.jpeg.jpg

Gemini

The colors and imagery are unsettling and I get a real The Shining vibe here.

 

 

Dir en Grey

Spoiler

Agitated Screams of Maggots

The environment feels so otherwordly and hostile. Then you see that little innocent looking fairy is the creature that did this.

 

R-1775967-1242577672.jpeg.jpg

Cage

The cover feels really clean with it's white color palette, but having that tube of blood there makes it feel really dirty. I love the composition too, starting from the face, then the eyes that you follow to the finger dipped in blood, all the way down the large stretch of red blood ending at the band's name and single title.

 

 

GazettE

Regret

I really like the aesthetic of all the single from this era, but this one is my favorite.

 

R-7343539-1439371486-9550.png.jpg

Hankou Seimei Bun

I just like this one because I think it looks like Leonardo Dicaprio screaming angrily

Gain

I think this is a real life museum piece? I dig how creepy this wall of faces is.

 

 

 

@Paraph Karte is on my list too! I didn't post it since you already did. "Any" is probably one of my favorite 9goats song.

another current cover i really liked was 高潮トキシコーシス (kouchou toxicosis) by ヴァージュ(virge)
it really gives me that old school vk vibe from the early 2000's.

It's simple, but I've always really liked the cover of THE BACK HORN's "Ikiru Sainou" album.

YOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! I legit thought about this cover too!!! Something about it just really captures that raw essence of early TBH material. either that, or maybe I'm just nostalgic :P

Also, make sure it's the BBcode and that you link it (using the button at the top) instead of using the "insert other media" option. I have to do that, anyways. I dunno if that's the case for anyone else.

I'd just paste the link, you can't actually post attachments because of the server.
