Your Favourite Album Covers

Recommended Posts

Mellon+Collie+and+the+Infinite+Sadness+M

Mellon Collie definitely has one of my favourite covers. I'm a major Pumpkins fan, and a sucker for all that gypsy/Victorian art.

And all of Zeppelin's album covers. And all of Iron Maiden's covers.....except Dance of Death. Oh and can't forget Sabbath's Master of Reality.

The greatest album cover I have ever seen goes to The Beastie Boys - Paul's Boutique which is 5 album covers wide that folds out:

This is a classic inner sleeve from the Welsh band Man: It folds out from the gatefold inner sleeve and i have a copy which is in great condition. I love the way the pole bearers are pushing Wales away from England.

A few already mentioned I like -

Roxy Music Stranded

LZ Physical Graffiti

Black Sabbath Mob Rules

Always been a fan of Hypgnosis covers - they did a lot of Floyd and Zeppelin covers.

Hypgnosis covers in particular I've always liked include:

UFO Obsession

Led Zeppelin Presence

Scorpions Lovedrive

Special mention for Pink Floyd Wish You Were Here

The front cover with the guy in flames has the section where it looks like it's burning the boundary of the photo, and the back cover of the man on the sand dune has what looks like a tear in the cover where sand is pouring out.

As a graphic artist, this kind of attention to detail thrills me.

Some of the NON-Hypgnosis covers I like:

The Cult Sonic Temple

This is the ultimate classic guitarist pose, with the bonus classic singer-throwing-their-long-hair-back pose in the background.

I just recently discovered this album cover from Dead Soul Tribe, and the music is really good, as well.

What I like is how well the cover illustrates what I might imagine a dead soul to appear - kinda of blurry and indistinct yet with recognizable features and the inclusion of flames.

Really well done, IMO.

That UFO album cover always reminded me of The Sparks for some reason, not sure why.

When I was a kid I LOVED those Cheech & Chong albums Strider. So cool that someone else was into them as well

Oh yes me too unsurprisingly. This album is a absolute stoner classic. I think their best.
