Favorite album covers
« on: April 15, 2023, 10:18:32 PM »
What are your faves? Here are a few of mine:

Dopesmoker by Sleep. It looks like it was sort of inspired by Dune which is one of my favorite books, so that automatically puts it at the top for me


Miami by The Gun Club. I like how apocalyptic it looks for such a mundane photo. Not my favorite Gun Club album, but 'Mother of Earth' was probably the first song I ever heard that made me think country music could be cool sometimes.


Let It Be by The Replacements. Not too much to say about it other than it just being iconic and accurately capturing the vibe of the band at this point in their career.

I don't like Metallica, but this cover looks hard as fuck.



Sunny Day Real Estate's Diary is another one of my favs. All the paintings used in the booklet and all rule too.

i love skateboarding all the time, but sometimes i wish i was one of those douchebags who hangs out with hot girls and parties every week

The original Dopesmoker cover was done by Tim Lehi. Those Southern Lord repressings are cool too.

Winged Victory for the Sullen - self titled & Andy Stott - Luxury Problems were the first two to come to mind

Silver Jews had some great ones too, and I feel like almost any of the individual pictures from the Purple Mountains cover would be amazing album art on their own

I really like a lot of the covers that Robert Beatty has done as well, and just his art in general
These two specifically:

^I like your selections especially the Ariel Pink cover.

My favorite album covers usually have an image of a woman. Here are a few in the same veinÖ

it must be crazy when chico sells you something and the tables switch from "give me my money chico" to "giving my money to chico"
