I'm want to start this discussion about album covers and what people's favouite ones are.

For me an album cover be give an artist of the cover ways to either express how the album is, describe the main themes of the album.
Take what the album means as a whole.
Craft a painting or a band photo or in the case of one of the most recognisable album covers... ... This:

No explanation needed, the cover speaks for itself.

I've got a few I really like.

...And Then We Saw Land - Tunng

Tunng's covers are always bizarre, just like the music within them. Land just happens to be my personal favorite album and album artwork. Some kind of paint by numbers theme going on here.



Terra Lumina - Melodysheep

This one's also pretty busy, but I kinda like how much is put in there. Pretty sure the main feature is meant to be a planet, with the tree of life inside of it, working with the album's science theme.



All Things Bright and Beautiful - Owl City

I was torn between this cover and The Midsummer Station's, but I've talked about enough weird covers already. This one's just really nice and peaceful. I like how the greens contrast with the really light blues and whites of the sky. I like the flock of crows giving some life to the image. I like the single tree just kinda standing there. It's all really chill and goes with the mood of the album.



And to continue the Beatles theme, I like Yellow Submarine's cover. It's probably because I grew up with the Yellow Submarine film, but, well, shut up, I like it.

There was a 1960s group called Nirvana before Kurt Cobain's. Here is a cover of an album they released in 1972:
"All the world will be your enemy, Prince of a Thousand enemies. And when they catch you, they will kill you. But first they must catch you; digger, listener, runner, Prince with the swift warning. Be cunning, and full of tricks, and your people will never be destroyed."- Lord Frith

AJR's album The Click. The cover looks so beautiful. So do their other albums, but for me this one takes the cake of favorite cover from them.

I suggest checking out their music, especially the song Turning Out.



Blue October's The Answers album cover is weirdly beautiful, like I can't describe it. They are a great band and I would recommend anybody to check out their music.


Lastly, the album cover of Hayley Kiyoko's This Side Of Paradise. I only heard two of her songs, but she's fantastic along with the covers to her albums.
Too much art in paws

Did you know that...? In 1969 Robert Plant was asked for ID in Camden Market, London? So he ran back to his car to get Led Zeppelin I to show to that particular store owner also it's the Hindenburg disaster.

No... But Final Fantasy has good looking art styles nowadays.
