Top 10 Albums With a Blue 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
OUTSTANDING BLUE ELEMENTS
OR WHO ARE MAINLY BLUE!!!
Also I count all shades of blue!

The Top Ten

1 Ride the Lightning - Metallica Ride the Lightning - Metallica V 1 Comment
2 Nevermind - Nirvana Nevermind - Nirvana

Obvious spot for obvious reasons! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

3 Rust In Peace - Megadeth Rust In Peace - Megadeth

Me, being an advanced guitarist myself, I can say the holy wars riff is much more impressive than the tornado of souls solo. - gemcloben

4 Number of the Beast - Iron Maiden Number of the Beast - Iron Maiden

Hallowed Be Thy Name alone can win a spot in the Top 10, but some other great songs are also on this album: Run to the Hills, 22 Acacia Avenue, The Number of the Beast. - Metal_Treasure

Hallowed Be Thy Name along with The Number of the Beast, 22 Acacia Avenue, Run to the Hills and The Prisoner makes this album one of the best I've ever heard.

5 Machine Head - Deep Purple Machine Head - Deep Purple

Timeless classic, the best Deep Purple album with hits like Highway Star and Smoke On the Water, and amazing songs like Pictures Of Home and Lazy. A very diverse album with excellent songs for every mood and preferences - speed metal, hard rock, blues rock.Pictures Of Home isn't a well known song but it's awesome, too - it has 2 guitar solos, one bass solo, one keyboard solo and a cool drum intro. All these things are organically connected and don't sound like patches. Besides, the song has a great riff, rhythm, melody and vox. - Metal_Treasure

6 Nightfall in Middle-Earth - Blind Guardian Nightfall in Middle-Earth - Blind Guardian

An essential power metal album, also one of the best concept albums out there. Hansi Kürsch is an incredible singer. Songs - Nightfall, Into The Storm, Thorn, Mirror Mirror, Time Stands Still (At The Iron Hill), The Curse Of Feanor. The cover represents Lúthien dancing in front of Morgoth - so beautiful and dark at the same time. - Metal_Treasure

7 Seventh Son of a Seventh Son - Iron Maiden Seventh Son of a Seventh Son - Iron Maiden

My favourite on this list! Absolutely no bad songs. Love the cover very much. It fits the albums concept. Which is also one of the best of all time. - IronSabbathPriest

8 Nightmare - Avenged Sevenfold Nightmare - Avenged Sevenfold

Some love it, some hate it!I love it! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

9 Ok Computer - Radiohead Ok Computer - Radiohead

A very complex album! One of the absolute greatest! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

10 Fallen - Evanescence Fallen - Evanescence

The Contenders

11 At the Edge of Time - Blind Guardian At the Edge of Time - Blind Guardian

This album is so epic man. No bad songs on it but my favorites are: Sacred Worlds, Ride Into Obsession, Wheel Of Time, Tanelorn (Into The Void), A Voice In The Dark. And the album cover is fantastic, too (by the way, I think the image sample here is kinda blackened). - Metal_Treasure

12 18 - Moby 18 - Moby
13 Octavarium - Dream Theater Octavarium - Dream Theater

A critically acclaimed album with a very beautiful album cover, too. - Metal_Treasure

14 Blue - Gemini
15 Dear Agony - Breaking Benjamin Dear Agony - Breaking Benjamin
16 Innocents - Moby Innocents - Moby
17 Horror Show - Iced Earth Horror Show - Iced Earth

An album with one of the best singers on this list, very well written songs, cool riffs, etc. I agree with IronSabbathPriest - my favorite songs are also Damien and Dracula. Guys, you have to hear this powerful voice, I really mean powerful. - Metal_Treasure

Often regarded as the best IE album. Every song is about some horror story or person. Song examples include Dracula, The Phantom Opera Ghost, Damien (from The Omen) etc. - IronSabbathPriest

18 With Teeth - Nine Inch Nails With Teeth - Nine Inch Nails
19 For Lack of a Better Name - Deadmau5 For Lack of a Better Name - Deadmau5
20 Slaves and Masters - Deep Purple Slaves and Masters - Deep Purple
