You can easily Google the album's title and the artist Kal.
Then you'll get access to the music.
I think that's the "scope"; share, search and discover.

If the music album covers are posted it's because the posters like the music.
Music lovers, not music reviewers; they let us do the search work.
They don't write for Stereophile, like you do. :)

Sheesh! I was just saying that I am often impressed by and enjoy the quality of the artwork even if I have no particular interest in the music on that specific release. It was not meant as a criticism of anyone's contributions.

Then just forget what I've just said Kal.

In the past you commented that it's nice to have a line or two commenting on the music to go along with the album cover. That was my thought.

* A short comment helps in the search, so I do agree with you (prior comment).
A nice picture is also a motivation in the search.
A combination of both is best...IMO.
We don't have to be music reviewers to write a line describing our overall impression, so it's easy for anyone posting a nice album cover picture.

** All those nice music album covers look much better from a LP than a CD, by the way.
That's one advantage of analog over digital (there are more ...).
And of course, mono/stereo strictly (no multichannel classical music from LPs).

*** The music should be more impressive than its cover.
I wonder if some people buy more the cover than the music content ...?
Anyway a beautiful music recording with beautiful music performance inside a beautiful art cover album is a beautiful thing.
