The Top Ten

1 Live - Blind Guardian Live - Blind Guardian

Cover paintings - Andreas Marshall (he made most of Blind Guardian's cover arts).
"Live" is a live album and Marshall depitded the bards from Blind Guardian playing live the "Bard's Tavern", named after their most popular song "The Bard's Song".
Every detail of this artwork is awesome - it's even possible to see one of the bards through the tavern window, several clients, a dragon's tail next to the entrance, lights in the castles located on the street that is a 2nd level street, the stairway between the two street levels, an so on.
Hands down. - Metal_Treasure
