For the past five years, American Mensa has created a bracket challenge. The best toys, heroes, and inventions have been crowned in the past.

This year, Mensa is looking for the best album cover art of all time.

Just like the NCAA basketball tournament, the Mensa Bracket Challenge starts with four regions, each seeded 1 through 16. In the first round, the top seed will face off against the 16th seed from the same category; the second seed will challenge the 15th seed and so on.

Decade, genre and musical talent were all tossed aside when the sixty-four albums were chosen for the Mensa Bracket Challenge 2014.

The four regions are:


  • Covers that embrace the “less is more” approach such as Pink Floyd’s “Dark Side of the Moon”.

Lens Flair

  • Camera work that celebrates images, such as “Strange Days” by The Doors.

Artist Rendering

  • Painted, drawn, assembled or cobbled by an artist’s hand such as “Kiln House” by Fleetwood Mac.


  • When words are worth a thousand pictures, such as “West Side Story".

Voting is open to the public and new matchups will be launched weekly through Nov.17.

The winner will be announced in January 2015.

Some great albums and great covers, but some major snubs too. What's your all-time favorite and what's the biggest snub?
