One second...

what's your favourite album cover?

They say never judge by a cover, but when it comes to albums I can’t help it...
My love of album art is probably half the reason I chose to be a designer, it's also probably why I’m the only person I know with a cd collection arranged by the colour of their spines.
So if your anything like me and love your artwork 12 x 12, post up a pic of your favourite.

Mezo - i hardly ever download, not so much because i dont want to rip off the artist (although that's what i tell people!) but because i still love having the artwork, something tangible you can hold... i'd love to have a massive vinyl collection (but my cd addiction is eating at my saving enough as it is)

Torakamikaze i've spent so much money on cds i've listened to no more than 4 times because i loved the artwork - i really TRY to like them - but sometimes its just too hard!

Confession: Ever since I got my mac and an ipod I've been a download whore =/ I think I've only bought like 2 CDs in the past year and a half, and they were just for when I'm driving. I'm totally going to start a collection again, I miss the feeling of excitement at tearing open the cellophane on a new buy.

i like this one because it's the only music album cover i've ever designed :)

The smell of a newly opened cd is the greatest!

I remember as a kid being fascinated by the inside cassette tape cover of GnR's Appetite for Destruction:

Kerry- She will either break your heart with sweetness. or you'll hate her voice. Also, check out her album "Ys"
(also with cool art)

or a mix of both. i like her music but hate her voice. unfortunately the latter pretty much prevents me from listening to her.

rolls up sleeves

WHAT ABOUT 'EM, PEAR??

this entire album has great art throughout. really bright and vibrant.

this one can't be appreciated as a still image because it's a hologram, and different parts of the booklet can be inserted in the case to create different holograms.

kashlen

I think I agree with tracer, it's a combo of both, but I like her. (I'm on pandora) okay wait she just hit a weird high note...I don't know...lol!

The_Ali

There are so many good ones!! But I saw someone posted a Finch album and said it was an awful CD ... I agree with the album art - I thought it was awesome, but I also loved the CD!

I also like the album art on Modest Mouse's "The Moon and Antarctica"

kashlen

and YES to Houses of the Holy!

it always bothered me that the song Houses of the Holy was on the Physical Graffiti album

kashlen

yes that is kinda stupid...wait wait, that is blasphemy...led zeppelin can do whatever the hell they want.

When my sister was in London, she wanted to recreate Abbey Road, but the people she was with were lame and didn't care about the Beatles.

OMG PAUL IS WALKING OUT OF STEP AND HOLDING A CIGARETTE I THINK THAT MEANS HE'S DEAD OR THE WALRUS!

WarDrobeInSpareOom

The artwork on Houses of the Holy used to creep me out as a kid.


It still kind of does.

kashlen

haha it (houses of the holy) is supposed to represent Jimmy Page's kids (I think).

And I would be so pissed if I was with lame non-beatles-loving people

Two that come to mind right now, I'm sure there loads more.

Avant-garde metal with viking themes, it doesn't get much better than that.
