So pit! What makes a great album cover in your opinion? Post examples, debate and so forth.
Here are a few of my favourites.
A New Day by Four Letter Lie
Symphony Soldier by The Cab


and Life in Cartoon Motion by Mika (Don't beat on the music, the cover is cool)


So pit, it's your turn. Album covers. Pics of good ones, Why you like them, makes them good iyo and do you own them?
Music is an art form that celebrates potential. So long as you're looking for it, you'll always find it.

I don't know Four Letter Lie, but that album cover actually is really cool!

This is the upcoming Wednesday 13 album cover. And I ****ing love it.

I like In Through the Out Door. My favourite album covers are ones that have psychedelic or spacial drawings on them. I'm also a fan of all of Iron Maiden's covers, I love the artwork.

Four letter lie are pretty rad. Saw them playing with Dance Gavin Dance and A Static Lullaby a couple of years ago, first time I'd heard of them
Youtube Cake Eater by them (Cake... Four Letter Lie.... cake is a lie ) It's a pretty good song.

I like the cover to Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
and also The Mothers of Invention's We're Only In This For The Money, which is a parody of Sgt Peppers.

You are EXTREMELY WRONG! I have played it. I own an 18W and it would be an awful stereo amp, it's way too bright, breaks up too easily and so on. Secondly, why would a guitar store sell an hifi amp.

You people should post the damn names of the albums and artists if the cover doesn't already say so. I want to know what some of these are.

Witchtanic Hallucinations - Acid Witch



First Utterance - Comus



I love all Opeth album covers, but My Arms Your Hearse is just so beautifully depressing and doomy


Fear of a Blank Planet - Porcupine Tree
