Never let it be said we don’t cover the important stuff on NME.COM. The design website Speckyboy has gathered together loads of album sleeves rendered in Lego – and here are a few of the best, starting with The White Stripes, ‘White Blood Cells’. Remember them this way.

Los Campesinos! – ‘Romance is Boring’. If you’re not familiar with the original, it’s a close-up of a wound on a woman’s leg. This looks more like a chunk of yellow plastic with a sliver of a gummy worm glued to it.
Does it count when you don’t use Lego men? Anyway, here’s The xx’s self-titled debut. Many of these images (and more) can be found over at speckyboy.com.
Peter Gabriel – ‘Peter Gabriel’. The album’s often referred to as ‘Melt’ – which makes sense once you see the original cover artwork.
