In the '60s, all the Album Covers moved, or was it just because we were all stoned?

Heh heh! Yeah, some of these are really good! Love PJ Harvey crossing Broadway.

Wish he'd ditch that multiple-Bowies-passing-by background, though: takes away from enjoying each GIF on its own.

Ooh yes, this came up on my tumblr dashboard the other day and I loved it. However much fun this one is - I like them best when they use only the existing cover art.

Much better after blocking the Bowie background with AdBlocker.

For all your animated-gif needs.

Looks like an awful lot of time went into that "DSOTM in real life" effect, only to come up with very underwhelming results.

I guess animating Tool's AEnima would be redundant, but hence a challenge.

These album covers aren't nearly as animated as the ones we used to stare at back in the 60s, if you know what I mean. I remember one night when Ray Davies climbed out of the cover of "Kinda Kinks" and ran into Jimmy Carl Black, who'd stepped out of the "We're Only in it For the Money" center-spread for a smoke, and the two of them dragged Mick Love off the cover of "All Summer Long" and beat the crap out of him.

Slight but fun.

Ray Charles once sang directly to me. It eventually got too weird so I looked at the side of the fireplace instead. He was there too, in amongst the brickwork. I remember thinking, he wants me to calm down but this is just freaking me out.

Psychedelics are so much more effective than the internet.

I'm thinking it probably whelmed a bit more if you were actually there, as opposed to viewing it via three-inch Youtube screen.
