Best Album Artwork

I was reorganizing my CD collection tonight and happened upon Joy Division's Unknown Pleasures. In addition to being one of the most powerful, emotive albums I own, it also has perhaps the greatest sleeve design I have ever seen:



This is a prime example of the cover art reflecting the music perfectly, almost to the extent that it infuses and enhances the album experience. Another favorite of mine is Wish You Were Here:




Simple, yet inventive and iconic. I'm curious to hear about and see what you all consider great album art.

Tho my favorite art of theirs is probably Phantom Power, with or without the full fold-out panorama painting.

Something about Sigur Ros's Agaetis Byrjun cover art coloured my first listening experience - I was hooked:

I've never really been too impressed w/ album art, but I do quite like that Animal Collective one...
