For instance, 90s French band Fredericks Goldman Jones — what makes this so special? It folded out into the shape of a cross with Isaac having his arms stretched wide, like this…. Most of those albums date from the era of the long-playing record — none too surprising re-ally given that the medium was part of the message and are part of what encouraged us to spend our hard earned cash. Now we bet most of you will have, at some time or another, bought an album because of the cover.
When you have commented to let us know, we will publish your greatest album covers… we live in a democracy, you see. So here they are, the 10 albums generally considered to be the Best of the Best as far as album design is concerned. These too are not in any particular order…. Are you kidding me? Black Moses by Isaac Hayes! You are not being serious here…. Or any Molly Hatchet cover? Kiss Alive 1 captured the raw live energy deffo should have been there.
Although…you have captured many…. Roger Dean along with Hipgnosis and maybe a few others is one of the most noteworthy album cover artists who did some of the most recognizable art work especially for progressive rock bands. Where is Quicksilver Happy Tails? Rick Griffin artwork. No Uriah Heep? Omission faux pas in my eyes to this list. For the artwork AND the music. The Moody Blues had at least six or seven albums that were better than most everything on this list! Great Selection, with a bit of a bias for British and U.
Just to name a few. So good to hear of Crawler again. Here are 2 that sprang to mind. And, Guitars that destroyed the world. Great album, great cover. What is it wit all the Beatles albums???? Talk about overkill. The White Album??? I do like the Beatles but unfortunately they are rammed down peoples throats. It was creativity to the nth degree, man! If you had any serious knowledge about The Beatles and their influence on the entire world with fashion, language, music and more, you would not ask this question.
Read some good books about them. Everybody since has been influenced by their music and creative style. If you had actually lived through the 60s you would know what it meant to the world of music.
Also with no picture. We know now who the real fool really is…. Then came Black Sabbath…. Those are all iconic albums or most of them anyway but not necessarily iconic album covers. However, when an album itself becomes iconic for example Close to the Edge by Yes then usually the cover becomes iconic too.
Not always but a lot of the time. Missing: Vs. Basically no female artists and the women that appear on the covers of the albums of the male artists are all showing their tits. Glad to see the original Electric Ladyland cover.
Interesting that they all seem to be from the vinyl era,no cd artwork Juicy Lucy? Breakfast in America is one of my all time favorite albums that I can listen to over and over. I have planned my holidays around his tour dates. Hope to see him when he comes to the US and Canada next month and in Dec, too. I thought the first Bad Company had a very iconic look to it…the large logo against the stark black background. Yeah,my first tattoo was Rainbow Rising…think that artwork rocks..
Some for consideration…. Disappointed but not surprised to see no Iron Maiden or Megadeth covers in there. I think Adam Ant and the Ants should be included as well. Adam created some of the most iconic visuals in musical history. This list is so lame! A lot of good covers here from good albums. But so many are so lame, even stuff that I like!
There are better Zeppelin covers, and I would think at least 1 from the Moody Blues would be on here! Who made this list? Would be nice to actually officially credit them too! I do not know where you culled the images for this article, but whoever was responsible is clearly a dunderhead. The image for The Ramones debut album is incorrect, it is an image that has someone had a non-Ramone cut and pasted onto the cover.
Also, try to get images from original LP and not the CD. Most fucking annoying. Playing Possum — Carly Simon Of course, this a personal preference. Pretty iconic. Gotta go with just about any of the 30 or so covers Warhol designed, just because of his name, the rarity, and therefore their collectibility… Sticky Fingers and Banana covers are among the most recognizable.
How about some love for the greatest live album ever recorded? Little Feat — Waiting for Columbus Killer artwork, killer shows. The album cover that started it all the most iconic Herb Alpert and the Tiajuana Brass the one with the naked girl covered in whipped cream , WTF how could this not be included really.
My thoughts exactly. Iconic is a great word to describe that album cover. What are you trying to prove? Who cares??? That cover is supposed to suggest she WAS naked because she could easily have been. It has really good music also. Have a mono and a stereo copy. The reason? The cover depicts one of the greatest rock guitarists in his prime!
A masterpiece! T Rex electric warrior. And their album absolutely free as well. Good thing that several people remember the 3d captain beyond cover. Scorpions fly to the rainbow. Neil Young on the beach. Everything in the cover, from the sepia tone photo, to the clothes to the typography was the antithesis of the sixties aesthetic and announced a new music rooted in the past. I grew up shopping in the vinyl era, and there were so many great covers then.
While everyone of these are worthy, there are so many that could be included that a top best covers list seems woefully inadequate. I agree! Nazareth: Hair of the Dog hands down the best album cover of all time.
