Four Lads and a Coincidence

Beatles - Let It Be

Blur - Best of Blur

Gorillaz - Demon Days
Is this a coincidence or what? Or absolute album cover design plagiarism?

But I kind of like the three covers. They are brilliant in their own way for the era of music they depict. It sort of shows a musical as well as technological and design evolution of sorts. The Beatles from the swinging sixties era to Blur’s Britpop blurs to Gorillaz remix animation gung-ho. As a matter of fact I like all three covers for whatever reasons it may be. One instance where plagiarism or the magic of borrowed ideas does work.

    […] Elsewhere, I see Jabr-wocky has suggested that the Best of Blur album may have been derivative in itself. […]
