    What's your favorite painting that has been place on an album. I can't find the artist, but my favorite is the inner painting to Aqualung by Jethro Tull

    Not a great copy of it, but it has phenomenal texture/color. It's a very strange subject matter (relating to the album of course) but it's such a unique painting, IMO. The look on the guys face is just so great.

    Honorable mention:

    There are several King Crimson covers that come to mind.

    I dug a lot of the promotional art that the flaming lips used for yoshimi battles the pink robots.

    Actually, I did too. It fits that album quite well. The hellbound one is probably the craziest.

    I like that first one, it looks really cool. What is that CD? I can't make out the writing! :)

    I'm pretty sure it's Dimmur Borg (sic?)

    It's pretty metal to have text that no one can read.
     
  11. it is. I remember because I got that CD for my drummer the same day I got Washing Machine...

    ahem..

    I always kind of liked the outside of "Overnight Sensation" and the inside of "Eat a Peach".

    There was always plenty to look at while you where waiting for the bong to come around again.

    Excuse me whilst I wax nostalgic.......
     
  13. Most of Derek Riggs' )Iron Maiden) portfolio, but Somewhere in Time is probably my favourite.

    Its Dimmu Borgir's first album "For All Tid", good CD though the production and songwriting si very primitive compared to their later stuff.

    I've always like the full cover foldout of Cathedral's "The Carnival Bizarre". I can't find a picture that does it justice, the full foldout is a massive, highly detailed sureal landscape type thing of dancing skeletons and general weirdness...hard to describe, but trust me, its cool :)

    When I first saw the vinyl of this album I was blown away. This pic really doesn't do it justice. It's stunning to say the least. Good album as well.
