Just what it says on the tin, ladies and gentlemen.
20Tim Buckley
Starsailor


Can you say "trollface"? Anyone who's heard this album knows exactly what I'm talking about.
19Slint
Slint EP


Whodunnit? I don't care, I'd rather observe the aesthetics of the crime scene.
18Slint
Spiderland


Are you getting the vibe that I'm getting? Yeah, THAT vibe. Introduces the music perfectly.
17DJ Shadow
Endtroducing.....


Lo-fi covers have their place, too. There seems to be some subtle paranoia in this record shop.
16Bob Dylan
Bringing It All Back Home


You can really see the smokerings of Dylan's mind here. Love the magazines, too.
15Talking Heads
Remain in Light


Despite its MS Paint leanings, I still get a kick out of this funky color scheme and "African mask" theme.
14The Beatles
Rubber Soul


One of the best accidental creations (the famous tilt) ever to happen in rock. The groovy font was ahead of its time just a bit, too.
13King Crimson
In the Court of the Crimson King


You can see every lyric of every song in his face. A striking masterpiece.
12Jethro Tull
Thick as a Brick


I selected this one mainly for the fact that anyone even dared put so much detail into an album cover. Then came CDs and it was all for nothing.
11The Velvet Underground
The Velvet Underground & Nico


It's a banana, but it's one fucking awesome art school graduate banana.
10Black Sabbath
Sabbath Bloody Sabbath


HELL yeah! This is exactly the kind of album cover in your collection your parents would have had an aneurysm over in 1973. Evil, evil, evil.
9Radiohead
OK Computer


For 1997, in the days of dial-up and VCRs, I must say, this is an impressive postmodern collage, courtesy of fifth wheel Stanley Donwood.
8The Velvet Underground
White Light/White Heat


This, my friends, is punk. Something raw and bare to admire while listening to something as crazy as "Sister Ray".
7Joy Division
Unknown Pleasures


Aside from being perfect for t-shirts, this is a wonderfully minimalist cover that showcases the spartan post-punk despair within the album.
6Bob Dylan
Highway 61 Revisited


I chose this simply for its beauty. I want an outfit like the anonymous figure on the left has.
5 Bauhaus
Bela Lugosi's Dead


Striking use of light and shadow here. Foreboding, antique, stylish - completely apropos for the first Gothic Rock single.
4The Beatles
Revolver


Gorgeous monochrome psychedelia scrapbooking. Am I the only one who notices the pentagram?
3Yes
Close to the Edge


I chose this album as an example but it's basically ANYTHING Roger Dean did for Yes
2Sonic Youth
Goo


"I stole my sister's boyfriend. It was all whirlwind, heat and flash. Within a week we killed my parents and hit the road." How much more badass of a quote can you get?!
1Pink Floyd
The Dark Side of the Moon


But of course...
