Best/Favorite Album Covers?

 
 
Reply Sun 11 Sep, 2005 11:01 am
There's a hilarious thread going now about bad album covers.

What are some of the best?

I don't presently have the internet speed to post these yet, but two that come to mind are the Clash's "London Calling" and Nirvana's "Nevermind."

Nevermind was an allright cover. But I'll go with either

Opeth's "Blackwater Park"

and TooL's "Aenima" who's cover is my avatar.

That is a cool cover.

This thread topic would take way too much thought....but off the top of my head, this is a pretty cool cover. Awesome band too if you haven't heard them:

And if my band ever signs a deal, our first album cover will be this.

Always liked this one from Ry Cooder.


http://img125.imageshack.us/img125/8763/rycooderintothepurplevalleyfro.jpg


Proximity to the dream factories of Hollywood helped Ry Cooder achieve his vision for the cover of Into the Purple Valley. "At tht time, the Warner Bros. film lot in Burbank was adjacent to the record-company building," Cooder says. "There wasn't much going on there -- it was kind of dormant. This old guy was taking me around. I knew I'd find something, but I didn't know exactly until he steered me to this library of gigantic set paintings."

Commandeering an unused stage on the lot, Cooder and his wife, Susan, set themselves up in a Buick convertible borrowed from a neighbor ("A beautiful car, but it ran like ****") and endured a blast from the studio rain machine. Today, Cooder credits the veteran lighting men who pitched in: "All the old-timers on the lot actually got it going; otherwise it just looks like nothing -- a car and a flat painting of the sky. It takes a lot of lights to perk it up. It took all day, but I had a great time.

For some reason I loved this group, though their music wasn't much like anything else I liked at the time. And I love this lp cover:

Ahem, Uknown Pleasures. Another great cover. Simple but evocative of Joy Division's haunting, lo-fi early sound.
