Best Album Covers

The Contenders: Page 5

81 Eminem - Recovery
82 L'Arc~en~Ciel - Real

The statue and the city in the background made this cover beautiful. - ronluna

83 Robbie Williams - The Greatest Hits

One of the most sexiest covers that's for sure

84 Green Day - American Idiot

So iconic. Why is this so low?

When I see this I think “My heart is beating from me” from homecoming.

85 Megadeth - Peace Sells... But Who's Buying?
86 Led Zeppelin - Physical Graffiti

THE ALL TIME COOLEST LOOKING ALBUM COVER EVER. It matches the music on the album, and LED ZEPPELIN IS INDISPUTABLY THE BEST MUSIC ARTIST OF ALL TIME. Yes, that includes THE Beatles. Led Zep's name is carved in stone at the top of the building, symbolizing their harder side. A sad little guy is mourning on the stairs, symbolizing their softer side. THE LETTERS THAT SPELL OUT "PHYSICAL GRAFFITI" ON THE WINDOWS ARE JUST THERE FOR AWESOMENESS. The best part? The building they used is still there! You can GO AND GET A PICTURE TAKEN NEXT TO PHYSICAL GRAFFITI! (Actually, the best part is the music. Not a bad song on it! It's my second favorite album, #1 being LZ IV. But this list isn't about the actual music, it's about the cover, and in that sense, PG takes the cake. ) I don't know how people could think that Pink Floyd's DSOTM is better than this. WHAT'S SO SYMBOLISTIC ABOUT A PRISM REFLECTING LIGHT? In my book, it should be swapped with PG.

87 30 Seconds To Mars - A Beautiful Lie
88 Skillet - Awake
89 Linkin Park - Living Things

This album cover is so awesome looking. Really creative, and it's also a great album. When an album has a cover like this, you know it's bound to be good.

90 Everybody Knows We Got Nowhere - The Heads
91 Beyonce - Lemonade
92 Rainbow - Rising
93 In the Nightside Eclipse - Emperor
94 Blink-182 - Enema of the State
95 Painkiller - Judas Priest
96 Kelly Clarkson - My December

beatiful, kind of like a symbolic painting - ilovekelly75

97 Queen - World of the News

Fun fact: This cover scared Seth MacFarlane (the creator of Family Guy) as a child.

I wonder if the title of this album have been written wrong just to see if some one would comment on it. - SuperAJ303

98 The Who - Sell Out
99 Nightwish - Oceanborn
100 Frontiers - Journey
