I think you folks should definitely include pictures, but try not to link directly to the images. Host them on photobucket or image shack or something first!

I'll be back sometime to share my favorites :)

Unwritten Law's first two albums had awesome artwork

Side note: EVERYONE should own Oz Factor. I've had it since I was a kid, and it's one of my favorite CDs of all time.

Unwritten Law - Blue Room

I really like the album cover to eMotiVe by A Perfect Circle.

but the inside album art is so much better.

Okay, head's up anyone who plans on releasing an album ever again:


All album covers from here on out should look like this.

I've seen that one before. I think they actually had it at the Tower Records around here before they went out of business.

It's weird, but rappers have the best covers, I never really planned it that way. They just seem to be a lot more cool/colorful/interesting.

Not my favorite album ever, but I absolutely love the cover and the title.
http://images.amazon.com/images/P/B000BB18EK.01._SCLZZZZZZZ_.jpg

That's actually Michael Stipe's shadow. He took the cover photo. It completely matches the feel of the album.
http://www.auralexploits.com/ebay_images/lp/REM_Reveal_1.jpg

Commitment is probably my least favorite body of work LBC released, but one thing I do love about it is that it totally sounds, looks, and feels like Chicago. It's always cool when a band can replicate the vibe of their hometown. This cover just matches everything about the album.
http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41NZ20JCFEL._SL500_AA240_.jpg

This album sucks minus a few songs. But I do enjoy the surreality of the cover and searching it for random shit I didn't notice at first.

This is the greatest album cover I've ever seen. It is absolutely perfect in every single way. The colors on the side really do a lot to the whole balance, and the balloon is a wonderful piece of symbolism. The font is dead-on. Everything, the colors, the whole balance, the simplicity, it's perfect. This album comes out in six days, I can't wait.

I don't really have a favorite, but I actually hate this one so much I get a little angry when I look at it.

Props to Treez, I was going to post Reveal.

http://image.fishpond.com.au/727361144128.jpg

Apocalyptica - Reflections. Another one that suits the album.

http://cavenger.files.wordpress.com/2007/12/thriller2.jpg

Michael Jackson - Thriller. Because it's the first thing you see when you walk in my room -- the record size.


http://www.thewho.com/images/media/albums_large/08_1_whos_next.jpg

The Who - Who's Next. I think I just love because of all the good feelings associated with it, but whatever. It's awesome.

Toad the Wet Sprocket - Dulcinea. Just looks cool.
