Somewhere in Time is my second favorite. it came out in the wake of Bladerunner, Terminator, and Robocop, and I remember being deeply impressed with what Derek Riggs managed to do with Eddie to modernize him like that. I even had a wall poster of Eddie smashing through with a wry smile on his face.

Favorite would have to be "Axis: Bold as Love" by The Jimi Hendrix Experience.

Wow this thread is only a decade old. Anyway one of my favorite CD packagings from at least my recent memory is the one for millstones' third album 青の研究 (A Study in Blue), where the CD has its own plastic-fabric sleeve which is stored in a paper sleeve with the artwork on it, except that outer sleeve actually doubles as a folded poster with all the album information on it. Very neat.

If we consider only the artwork itself, one of my favorite artworks from my recent musical discoveries would definitely be the one for M|O|O|N's MOON EP, which was the first vinyl I ever purchased and I did that before even owning a turntable. I loved the artwork so much that I simply had to have EP in physical form. The music is spectacular as well and the vinyl sounds phenomenal.

I am a huge fan of Bandcamp. Certainly one of the best things to happen to music business in my opinion – both for fans and musicians alike.

I was listening to this this morning and remembered how good the album cover was.

 

It really reflects the character of the album's music.

Although I've never listened to the whole album, I've always loved Def Leppard's "On Through The Night" album cover. It was my dad's album, I remember seeing the cover way back when I was a kid and loving it instantly.

 

That's one of them.....I'm sure there's more I can't think of right now.

So many good album covers...

 

 

 

The CD came with a sticker of the album cover- had it on my snowboard long ago...

Also, though I'm unable to post it from my phone, I really like the clothbound books that Steve Wilson's deluxe sets come in. It definitely adds to the listening experience.

Great thread. To contribute is a bit of a task as I wouldn't know which one to precisely pick. Though I think if I have to choose one, it would be from Eric Dolphy's Out There. I love the surrealistic qualities it has.

The artwork that Roger Dean did for Yes comes to mind...





Some examples that I had on my device.
