I think the last dude who bought an actual physical album of any artist died back in the year 2009, of stupidity. In today's scenario, no one has the time or principle to go to a CD store instead of downloading music for free.
There were those darker days, when making songs wasn't enough, the artist had to market the songs as well, which meant being creative in their album covers, as that had to be the selling point.
As is the case with anything though, there were always a bunch of misses in the middle of those hits.
