Covers With Great Photography

Pretty self explanatory. I'm a huge fan of album art and here's a list rof some of my favourite rcovers that use photography as the sole rvisual basis.
1Defeater
Travels


The expression and the colours evoke such a dark story, which suits the album's story perfectly.
2The Rolling Stones
Beggars Banquet


This one has such a spontaneous and rocknroll feeling.
3The Mars Volta
Frances The Mute


Gives such an odd feeling, like a David Lynch scene.
4Battles
Mirrored


It's so sleek and hyper real.
5The Libertines
The Libertines


I love this one, it tells such a story.
6Bad Religion
80-85


Super punk, and the design makes it look like a proper classic.
7DJ Shadow
Endtroducing


It looks really unusual but fun to look at and creates a cool mood.
8Crystal Castles
Crystal Castles II


Same as above.
9The Strokes
Is This It


Despite the subject matter this photo has such a great sense of shape, like a porno Man Ray.
10Fang Island
Fang Island


I like the playful mood that I feel complements the music very well.
11Nirvana
Bleach


I've loved this since I was about 12, it always encapsulated the spirit of rock for me and that feeling stuck with me since then.
12Wild Nothing
Gemini


Obviously chopped but still counts.
13These Arms Are Snakes
Oxeneers or the Lion Sleeps When Its Antelope Go Home


I just love how offhand this is and the deep colours are awesome.
14These Arms Are Snakes
This Is Meant To Hurt You


Love the creepy atmosphere.
15 Dangers
Messy, Isn't It?


Looks like a screencap from a film, with such a grim message revealed with your second glance.
16Celeste
Nihiliste(s)


Such a beautiful black and white shot, with a mood that complements the music's incredibly dark sound.
17Russian Circles
Station


No idea why but I just really like how this just works.
18The Chariot
Long Live


Just looks really bad ass.
19Deftones
Around The Fur


Love how it doesn't explain the music's sound at all, and the unusual angle makes it look very stylized and uncomfortable.
20The Cave Singers
Invitation Songs


I dunno, just love the serenity.
21JR Ewing
Ride Paranoia


I've always loved the sight of tons of equipment thrown about.
22Dillinger Four
Situationist Comedy


Bizarre is good.
23The Afghan Whigs
Gentlemen


Don't actually have this one but the boy's eyes are so eerie so it's stuck with me.
24Beck
Odelay!


Love this dog!
25Radiohead
Amnesiac


Couldn't think of another one, but I suppose this could count.
