My Favorite Records/Artwork Combos

Only albums having a great album artwork among my 30 or 40 favorite records (updated - order not defined by preference).
1Tool
Lateralus


Check out picture disc double LP and CD with translucent booklet versions to understand why I love this. Plus my favorite music ever. "Parabola" music video is a good sum up of Lateralus music and art.
2Rage Against The Machine
Rage Against The Machine


Can't get tired of such a great album. The artwork is a famous photo of a self-immolating monk and it's so greatly appropriate to the ideas involved by the band.
3King Crimson
In the Court of the Crimson King


Certainly one of the best paintings to me. It has that jazz/prog/power recalled in "21st Century Schizoid Man".
4A Perfect Circle
Mer de Noms


That logo is definitely genious, plus my favorite APC album for sure, no bad songs in this. Can't get tired of that album.
5Pink Floyd
The Dark Side of the Moon


Not my favorite album but the most iconic album pic among pink floyd discography.
6Pink Floyd
Animals


My favorite PF album, plus I love the theme idea of Orwell's "Animal Farm" behind the tracks titles and the flying pig on the cover...
7Tool
Aenima


My 2nd favorite Tool album with a really classy artwork : the special holographic CD version and artworks by Cam de Leon are great too.
8Isis
Oceanic


Oceanic holds one my favorite Isis track : "Weight". Plus the artwork is splendid.
9Blues Pills
Blues Pills


Love that 70's retro cover and music powered up by modern material.
10Primus
Sailing the Seas of Cheese


The album name, artwork add to that circus/crazy metal/funky coalescence music. I love Les Claypool and Primus work.
11Colour Haze
Colour Haze


That cover is deeply haunting. Check out "Mountain" and "Love" songs to get into their great music.
12The Jimi Hendrix Experience
Axis: Bold as Love


Classic album with great psych artwork.
13Riverside
Second Life Syndrome


Dark and artistic music and cover. The talented singer/bass player of this band is really underrated.
14Led Zeppelin
Houses of the Holy


I really love this album (especially "No Quarter" and "The Ocean" tracks), plus that great coloured pic reminds my trip to the wonderful Giant's Causeway on the irish coast.
15Rammstein
Mutter


Wonderful pic of a dead fetus (RIP). Epic songs here.
16Deftones
Around The Fur


A perfect sexy frame for this heavy album.
17Om
Conference of the Birds


Discovered Om with "At Giza" and it's still my favorite song. Classy photo artwork.
18Mastodon
Blood Mountain


The artwork with this 3-head beast is splendid and the perfect opening track announce the heaviness of the record.
19Witchcraft
Legend


Great rock music, great clear vocals. A superb lined eagle and logo is a simple but really smart cover.
20Year Of No Light
Ausserwelt


The darker and intriguing cover I know but I love it, plus it fits their slow/dark/heavy music perfectly. See them live if you have the opportunity, such a great experiment...
21Nirvana
Nevermind


Cult album with a great artwork idea.
22The Mars Volta
De-Loused in the Comatorium


Great pic for such a powerful and energic album.
23Marriages
Salome


Instant love for the artwork and pretty solid songs to me all along this album.
24Jeff Buckley
Grace


Most of the songs on Grace are masterpieces and Buckley's pic fits really well.
25Led Zeppelin
Led Zeppelin IV


What a frame ! Black dog, Stairway and When the levee will be forever hits imo...
26Porcupine Tree
In Absentia


My favorite album (and artwork) by such an excellent band.
27Shora
Malval


Too bad this band didn't go on... Malval is one of the greatest EP. Listen to the drums, wow.
28The Broken Circle Breakdown Bluegrass Band
The Broken Circle Breakdown


The tatooed back of the singer (and movie actress) should attract you to one of my favorite O.S.T.
