So,Muse's album 'The Resistance' has been voted the best album cover of 2009. I personally like it,and it and am pleased that people are realising the power of this form of art.

Manic Street Preachers' Journal For Plague Lovers finished second in the online survey, with Fever Ray's self-titled album placing third.

Splitting the Atom by Massive Attack and Green Day's 21st Century Breakdown rounded out the top five after some 50 album sleeves from the last year had been shortlisted for the prize.

Are there any others from 2009 that you like,or even from the last 50 years!!!! I know there is another thread buried somewhere in the smeggy vaults,but we need to have another go. I'll post some more later.

I can't blame your pal for keeping hold of Muse for so long, Wot_about_me. They're a pretty smashing band.

If you aren't willing to stand behind your troops, feel free to stand in front of them.

I know these things are subjective but seriously, if that Muse cover was voted best of 2009, it just goes to show how much the CD killed off the art of album covers. It's not that it's a bad sleeve, it's just that there is nothing better!

They are Gunner, I love them. They will be at glastonbury this summer.
Hmmm may have to think of fundraising ideas to finance that one. I remember the days when you could just jump the fence, I even remember the days of the old traveller field.....free to those in the know, damn expensive to those that weren't

Looks nice, however the Illuminati capless pyramid is very prominent. :chin: Also 'One World' symbolism, diamond shapes and other Illuminati symbolism.
