    Judge them however you want. Looks, story behind it, resemblance to the music, whatever!
    My picks:
    upload_2018-3-29_18-36-4. Vapor Trails by Rush. I love this one. The colour, the font I could look at it forever!

    upload_2018-3-29_18-37-32. This is everything I think a metal album cover should be. It's larger than life, semi-realistic. Those giant metal balls just scream metal.

    So what about you guys?

    I hate to say it, I always liked their album covers more than I did most of the songs on the albums...

    There is one and only one. All others pale by comparison.
