Best Album Cover
« on: September 06, 2010, 12:33:25 »
My vote is for "Wish". I think is the most "artistic" and original from all the albums covers!

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)

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.

The original dark trilogy (17 seconds, faith, pornography) all have perfect album covers.

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
