The Best Album Covers

Well, I starts an Album Titles thread earlier, but really an album's cover can create the same impact as a title, if not greater. Generally I feel the album cover isn't as important as the title, not by a long shot, but some covers are just amazing.

Such as:


The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan



Abbey Road



Heroes



The Unforgettable Fire


and



Darkness On The Edge Of Town

You don't really get a sense for it without holding the packaging in your hands.

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

Pink Floyd: Animals & Wish You Were Here
Zeppelin IV
The Who Sell Out
Radiohead: Amnesiac

I once watched a show claiming to present the top 50 album covers, and number one was Sticky Fingers by the Stones. I have always detested that album cover, although the album itself is incredible.
