Top 10 Albums With a Black Cover

This list was harder to put together than you might think! Colours are more suggestive things, so I decided to only count albums with

Also I count all shades of black!

The Top Ten

1 Dark Side of the Moon - Pink Floyd

The Contenders

Classy album, classy cover. Perfect Strangers is probably the best Deep Purple song, or at least top 3. Ritchie Blackmore himself said it was his favorite Deep Purple song.
