Best Album Covers

The Top Ten

1 Pink 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

That light going into the prism, and then becoming a rainbow just makes it look... Like no other

2 The Beatles - Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band

Instantly recognizable and the most expensive album cover they made, all the actors, the fancy uniforms, just so classic. - beatles

Easily the best... It sums up the whole revolution that not only The Beatles themselves influenced, but all those that came before them at the time. A perfect cover for a perfect album.

Trully, just epic. if you say it sucks and you have not listen to it then why do you say it sucks - maxwarawa

It was the most sensational album cover ever at the time - jmepa1234

5 The 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
100?

6 Nirvana - Nevermind

This album cover is awesome Kurt made an inspiration to this album cover :))

This picture is awesome. A A baby swimming under water lolz. Nirvana forever.

What?! The only cool/artistic items on this list are Dark Side Of The Moon and Nevermind. The rest are just pictures of famous people in weird poses. Toptens seems to attract all the fanboys...

Simple and yet so brilliant

8 Jackie 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 first burst upon the scene. - BobG

13 Michael Jackson - Thriller

This one is have tobe on top of the list. This album is the best of all. Greetings from Lithuania!

That's ridiculous you guys probably only voted for this because you like the album

14 Green Day - Dookie

There's so much going on in the album cover! This is my favorite with the resistance by muse close behind.

I think this cover represents animals tired of taking crap from humans so they decide to fight back using their own crap. Literally!

i find it funny. monkeys throwing poop everywhere and stuff. awesome album too - pauler94

Quite creepy looking album cover, confusing how its from the music video bohemian rhapsody yet it was made before it. - PotBellyPup

It actually inspired the music video!

16 Dio - Holy Diver

I love the original Rolling Stones cover "Sticky Fingers" but I also love "Too Fast For Love" the motley crue tribute to the stones.. I'm a big motley crue and stones fan.

19 Slash - Slash: Deluxe Edition
