Adnan Lotia, better known as uvupv on Instagram, recreates his favorite albums with LEGO. While it appears simple, crafting an image needs massive effort (and some rare LEGO pieces).

Albums are a treat for both ears and eyes.  A good album cover art piece has its own art genre, separate from the role of a simple placeholder image. Hundreds of classic record covers that are part of the tradition of modern music have been created over the years.

To celebrate his favorite albums, Adnan Lotia, better known as uvupv on Instagram, recreates them with LEGO. If you're familiar with LEGO, you know that while it appears simple, crafting an image needs massive effort.

However, there are those in the music industry who claim that records are dead. In any case, one may always visit memory lane and listen to them as if it were yesterday. Time improves the quality of good albums!

The creation of LEGO art like this will never be free of compromises. Creating faces, bodies, and abstract shapes, which are common in album art, is hard with the well-known LEGO grid, but it's perfect for square buildings. In addition to the requisite aesthetic vision, this form of art also requires a little of clever insight. The next time you examine it more closely, you'll discover that the hair and text have been replaced with LEGO pieces like bat wings, leaves, and other nifty parts.

The artist's reason for creating so was to commemorate his favorite musicians: “I began designing album art in LEGO to do so. I enjoy listening to musicians while I work, which is a terrific way to rediscover good music! ”

However, some of these albums are among the best-selling albums of all time, so there is some truth to the claim that they are great. The second-best-selling album of all time is Michael Jackson's "Thriller." The highest-ranking artists in the list are Fleetwood Mac's "Rumours", Guns N' Roses' "Appetite For Destruction", and Alanis Morissette's "Jagged Little Pill".
