Best Album Covers

The Top TenXW

1Pink Floyd - The Dark Side of the Moon

This album cover is so simple, but after listening to the album, it will stick with you for the rest of your life. The spectrum that emerges from the prism is representative of different topics in life, each covered by a different song on the album. Truly a god among men when it comes to album covers. - c0mf0rta61ynum6

This is the only album cover on here that is good, sorry but its true. The only good ones is this and the one on the items list. Sorry, but why do I always find heart or sarah brightman on every single music list? , anyway, not trying to hate on this list but its just I always see heart on a music list. - AmINumberOneYet

Most recognizable album cover. The light coming in represents the unity, the prism represents society and the spectrum represents disbanded unity. Just shows how a picture can speak 1000 words. And the music is even better

All it is a triangle and a rainbow, that is not cool at all! Relapse by Eminem is by far the coolest! - eminemgreenday

4Heart - Little Queen

The girls are just to fine. This is not art its the real thing . Ann and Nancy looking great.

5Jackie Evancho - Awakening

That is 14 years old? ! Hope her Dad keeps his 12 gauge nice and clean.

Jackie Evancho has a classic voice. One of the best Classical Crossover artists of all time. This 14 year old young women has a sense of music far beyond her years. Can't wait for Awakening to be released.

Classical beauty and laser beam eyes

No more appropriate image than that of the young lady herself, emerging as a teenage chanteuse whose voice is even more stunning than when she burst upon the scene. - BobG

8The Beatles - Abbey Road

There are albums listed higher than this that have artwork that I have never seen or simply don't know since there's no picture beside the entry. How is this lower? It should be #1! I'm horrified to see that it didn't even make the top 3. - BKAllmighty

It might not be the best, but it's the most famous and iconic. It gets my vote.

This is what made The Beatles so iconic.

Not even in the top
