There are many things in life that we all enjoy, but few things beat great music and your favourite sweets!
Here at Sweet Trolley Hire we provide people’s sweets for weddings and parties, so we’re constantly meeting the two in the middle. Well, we thought we’d go one further and recreate some of the most famous and iconic album covers of all time using sweets – skittles to be specific.
Why These Albums?
A quick search of ‘the most iconic album covers of all time’ will show you that most of these album covers are considered to be some of the best of all time. Not only that, but these albums are truly great.
The College Dropout, Kanye West
Love him or hate him, you can’t ignore him. Released in 2004 The College Dropout announced Kanye to the world as a solo artist and is highly considered to be one of the best hip hop albums of all time.
The Dark Side of the Moon, Pink Floyd
The album cover from Pink Floyd’s 1973 classic is widely considered to be one of the best album covers ever. We couldn’t consider recreating the most iconic album covers without considering this one.
Aladdin Sane, David Bowie
An artist in his own right, David Bowie was a visionary and one of the hardest working musicians in modern music history, releasing a staggering 25 studio albums. Aladdin Sane being the sixth, and arguably, one of the best, this 1973 beauty had to make our list.
÷, Ed Sheeran
Being released in March 2017, Ed Sheeran’s ÷ (divide) probably can’t be considered as a ‘great’ just yet, however, this album broke several records on its way to chart topping success. There’s no denying the simplistic nature of this album, and his previous X (multiply) album, are both pretty striking.
Random Access Memories, Daft Punk
Described as ‘art’ by TIME, the Random Access Memories album cover is a wonderfully simple and memorable album cover from Daft Punk’s 2013 record.
Blur: The Best Of, Blur
We’ve all tried to recreate this album cover when playing with various photo studio software, but Blur did it first back in 2000. 17 years on we thought we’d give it the sweet treatment with out Skittles album covers.
The Velvet Underground & Nico, Andy Warhol
Much like The Dark Side of the Moon, Andy Warhol’s design for the Velvet Underground & Nico’s self-titled 1967 album is widely regarded as one of the best album covers of all time. We couldn’t talk about iconic album covers and mention this one.
Here’s a bonus album cover for you…
Why include Ed Sheeran twice? Well, we made this one before Ed released his latest album and we couldn’t overlook his latest record, but we didn’t want this to go to waste, so here it is.
