PostSubject: Best Album Covers   Mon Jan 25, 2010 2:24 am

Before CD rules the World,a good LP Cover was needed too,to sell a Record.
in the 80s,i always watch the album cover while listening.
the cd area pic is to small to see all details,and for most bands its not so importand,but not for all !!!
so post your favorite Album Covers of all times + all bands......

I like how all the "I ONLY LIKE THRASH AND TRADITIONAL METAL CUZ IM AN OLDFAG" people just assume that all this "new metal" is bad and that we don't know the "true spirit of metal."

It's almost as bad as black metal elitist-fags.

I didn't know that picture of a person with a gun was actually an album cover, I always just assumed it was a really bad photo of that crazy German chick on Metal Throne...

Jig-Ai's album covers are great, because you'll never see them in a store and say to yourself "I wonder what kind of music they play."
