Presence, because they're all sitting there smiling, looking at "the object" with such adoration!

I guess I like it best because it's so different, it doesn't even look like a Led Zeppelin album.

Presence got my vote for its "Kubrickian" concept (one of my fav movies) though it's hard to argue with IV or PG...oh, I also wrote a poem from a writing class based on HOTH :D

Houses of the Holy: a beautiful mistake in photography, a long awaited cover but worth the wait, and the rocks are incredibly cool. B)

I voted HOTH, because it makes my eyes hurt. Strange but I absolutely love the colours. I WANT AN ORANGE SKY!!!

But looking at the pictures of PG is one of my favourite passtimes when I'm bored. An interactive sleeve, that's worth a nobel prize!

I agree with you about PG. Its my fav cover, I love the way the LP's are in seperate cases and then are in another seperate sleeve with the letters on the front of it. If you know what I mean.

Heres some info for those who care regarding real places used on some various album covers:

Heres one of the buildings in the surrounding area w/ tower in background:

The best covers are the ones that represent the music on the album the most. For this reason i chose Physical Graffitti with IV a close second.

The first cover I loved was In Through The Out Door, buyI love the cover of Phyical Graffetti the best with all the little interesting pictures. I love the hermit in VI. The pictures inside Coda are so moving that I want to cry.

Holy smokes... Led Zeppelin VI!? How'd I go about gettin' that album? :D !

Me personally, I love Led Zeppelin III's cover... get a strung-out and anxious sort of feeling from the artwork same as I do from the music on the album. I don't really know how else to explain it. The sonics match artworkpretty nicely. The volvelle was the perfect thing to study while listening to the album on drugs too, if you were into that sort of thing.

I remember spending ages as a kid playing with the wheel on my Big Brother's LZ III (and it came out of the sleeve, Bonus!) But I still love the Corn Circle/Zeppelin shadow on the 1990 Box. So What's Yours?

PS No Coda, the sleeve sucks.

Houses of the holy, WTF there's robert plant's daughters doubled climbing naked! :huh: :huh: :huh: :huh:
