I can understand Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart Club Band being number one, a great piece of pop art, but Never Mind the Bollocks by the Sex Pistols and The Beatles by The Beatles are just a joke!

Just some examples of my favourites:

So what album covers do you class as works of art?

I'm a fan of the old Roger Dean painted YES album Covers.

IIRC Relayer by Roger Dean was sold recently and fetched the highest price ever for a piece of record cover artwork.

It's not one of my favourites though.

I like this one:

Not my favourite band but I loved the Album Covers and art work

Liked the music and the cover

Shame that this Soundtrack never actually made it onto the Film - Damn that Elizabeth Burton.

I like this cover because it was my favourite book and my favourtite band coming together

One thing CDs and ultimately downloads have done is devalue music as a packaged product. the days of getting 288 square inches of artwork and even more with gatefolds are over. pwning and admiring/readign the cover was sometimes as cool as listening to the music.
