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.

Oasis, 'Definitely Maybe'. Nice attention to detail - note the scene from The Good, The Bad And The Ugly on the TV screen and a Lego Burt Bacharach poster. Not sure they've captured Bonehead's bald spot though.

Lily Allen, 'It's Not Me, It's You'. She's one 'L' of a pop star etc etc.

Moby, 'Play'. Aww, look at little Lego Moby... hang on, why is there a massive gun in shot? It's a video camera in the original.

Morrissey, 'You Are The Quarry'. Who'd have thought a Lego man could look like such a stone cold pimp?

Kate Nash, 'Made Of Bricks'. Woah... an album called 'Made Of Bricks' recreated by a house made out of bricks. That's so meta.

The Strokes - 'Is This It'. The original cover was replaced in some markets for being too risqué. But this? This is utter filth.

Madness, 'One Step Beyond'. They'll never be able to stand up without assistance. Much like the band themselves these days.

Belle and Sebastian, 'The Boy With The Arab Strap'. We didn't think it was possible, but this album just got more indie.

Maximo Park, 'Our Earthly Pleasures'. Have you ever seen Lego men and women having sex? It's pretty hot.

Kasier Chiefs, 'Yours Truly, Angry Mob'. We can only assume the Lego version of this album was just as piss-poor as the real version.

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.

The Futureheads, 'This Is Not The World'. Sinister... yet strangely erotic.

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.

Franz Ferdinand, 'Tonight...'. If only the album itself had as much personality as these little guys.

Bob Dylan, 'Love And Theft'. You remember that period when Dylan sported a pudding bowl hairdo and Hitler moustache, right? Of course you do.

Kiss, 'Dynasty'. Rumour has it Lego Gene Simmons has slept with thousands of Lego groupies.

Motorhead, 'Ace of Spades'. The thunderous, gravel-voiced punk-metal power of Lemmy's band is in no way diminished by them being yellow and two inches tall.

N.W.A., 'Straight Outta Compton'. Or should that be S.W.A. - Stormtroopers With Attitude? No, we're not sure why, either.

Pink Floyd, 'Wish You Were Here'. Again with the Lego storm troopers. Were they on special offer or something?

Queen, 'Queen II'. Hmm, not sure about this one. They didn't wear helmets in the original, did they?

Peter Gabriel - 'Peter Gabriel'. The album's often referred to as 'Melt' - which makes sense once you see the original cover artwork.

And here's Nirvana, 'Nevermind'. Really captures the visceral emotional power of songs like 'Polly' and 'Territorial Pissings', don't you think?
