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).

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

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...

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

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.
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.
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.

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

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

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

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

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

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...

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

Great pic for such a powerful and energic album.

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

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.

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.
