What is the greatest album cover?

I would have to say either

The Who: Tommy
Cream: Wheels of Fire
Beck: Sea Change
The Allman Brothers: Eat a Peach
King Crimson: In the Court of the Crimson King

What do you think.

Hate to sound cliche, but Led Zeppelin IV does it for me (gotta get it on vinyl).

If you like 5 year old girls then the best cover of an album is Led Zeppelin - Houses of the Holy.

Otherwise the best album cover is:
The Beatles - Sgt. Peppers and the Lonely Hearts Club Band
or
Led Zeppelin - Led Zeppelin

I dunno, I kinda like the style of the cover on The Decline by NOFX. Its kinda crappy, but looks cool and sends a good message IMHO.

Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts, no contest.

id say tool in general has some of the best covers. lateralus has no writing and is a tranperancy of the human body and aenema has 3 different covers that are like littlr holograms (flames, yogi rocking back and forth, an iris swirling around it's eye). other than that, id say the white album by the beatles. simpler than the black album by metallica (and doesnt have that stupid snake)

The original vinyl Are You Experienced is so weird and freaky. I also hate to sound obvious but Axis: Bold As Love is good too.

Nirvana- In Utero.

I know its kind of cheating but I need to include the back cover of that one. The collage of all the weird stuff and how it all has a little meaning to it, thats incredible.

radiohead's kid A was very cool, and the special edition with corresponding art was cool with it. The best in my cd collection would probably be amnesiac, if you include the inside art. interesting stuff.

Cannibal Corpse covers make me happy for some reason... I used to date a girl who looked alot like the woman with worms coming out of her orifice. She was cleaner and had fire red hair, though. That's even what she looked like when her legs were spread. WHich is cvreepy

Hell Injection is a great cover...

Meat ****s covers are interesting

Iron Maiden covers are neat (as are all Eddie paintings)

Jimi hendrix - electric ladyland was very shocking at the time, but i think its avery honest cover.

I'd post a link but i'm pretty sure i'd get done for posting pr0n
