The Top Ten

1 The Dark Side of the Moon

This image is iconic throughout music. Anybody can tell you it is Pink Floyd, fan or not. - ryanrimmel

All floyd album covers are great, I love them all. But despite me believing dark side is the most overrated pf album, the cover art is way too iconic to not say is the best pf cover, if not he best album cover ever
