What's your favourite Album Cover?


My vote is for "Wish". I think is the most "artistic" and original from all the albums covers!

For me " The Top" especially the artwork for the vinyl ...

Yes, I agree!  :smth023
Datemi un cielo per caderci dentro!
LADY, la luce nel mio buio!


the cover of wish is absolutly beautiful!!!  :smth038 :smth038
Say hello on a day like today
Say it every time you move
The way that you look at me now
Makes me wish i was you


You forgot:


And arguably the compilation and official live albums...


Sure, there are more covers (Mixed-Up, Concert, Show, Paris, Galore, etc...) but here I was asking just for the Studio Albums. I'm not sure if Boys Don't Cry is a "proper" album, more like a compilation from Three Imaginary Boys according to Wikipedia.

Then Japanese Whispers should also be excluded, as it is a compilation of singles and B-sides.  ;)

P.S.  Boys Don't Cry was a proper album as far as the U.S. market was concerned:

In 2003, the album was ranked number 442 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.


OK, you're right about Japanese Whispers. I also added BDC, although I don't think is going to win the title of "best album cover". We will see. 8)

Yeah ... BDC, maybe we could do another poll for that one :-D

The Head on the door.  I can't tell what it is, it looks like a person holding in a scream with their hands and doves flying at them.   I also love the graphics of the title and band name.


I like Quadous, it counts?


The original dark trilogy (17 seconds, faith, pornography) all have perfect album covers.
a smile to hide the fear away


I'd definitely say Kiss me kiss me kiss me! Such a great picture, so simple (and you can only guess who's lips they photographed :P)

Very nice to see on my cd collection pile.

A close second is 'The Cure'. Love the drawings
