Déjà Vu: Morning Parade vs. Maroon 5


Last year, I had a déjà vu moment with Lupe Fiasco's album Lasers (right). At the time, I pointed out that using a neon light sculpture for an album cover is not an original concept and that there are dozens of recent examples.

I compared the Lupe Fiasco album to Disco Four, the 2007 remix compilation by Pet Shop Boys. Like the cover for Lasers, Disco Four features a sculpture that illustrates the title of the album. Lasers has a sculpture of the word "LOSERS" with an anarchy symbol painted over the "O" and Disco Four has the number four in a similar color scheme.

The latest Déjà Vu pair includes a neon sculpture and a back-lit wall that both prominently feature the letter "M" as a representation of the band's name. The more recent of the two is the self-titled album by British band Morning Parade. It features a neon sculpture of the initials of the band's name. It is very similar to the Lupe Fiasco and Pet Shop Boys covers. The second cover in the pair is for Maroon 5's 2007 album It Won't Be Soon Before Long. The back-lit "M" was also used for the covers of the Makes Me Wonder singles and a b-sides collection.
