Best album covers by other artists
« on: December 07, 2019, 08:49:27 PM »
I love the cover of Beck's Hyperspace

The Edge: “[Eno] would love to see us making albums a bit more like [Zooropa]. Where we go, ‘You know what? We’re not going to second-guess any of this. Let’s just go for it.’”

U2 Fans: We'd all love to see that, Edge.

Now I know why An Tha hates Elevation.

Joy Divisions Closer isn’t just the best record cover ever it’s also the best album ever ever

It is certainly right up there....i was utterly obsessed by it when i was about 14/15.

It is an incredible record.

Very relevant this week:

The Edge: “[Eno] would love to see us making albums a bit more like [Zooropa]. Where we go, ‘You know what? We’re not going to second-guess any of this. Let’s just go for it.’”

U2 Fans: We'd all love to see that, Edge.

A band from my hometown of Little Rock.



They chose to stay local after their first album got some attention from some big Nashville producers.  The back cover has another sign with Nashville in one direction and Hope in the other.  These are both real signs.

The Stones obviously had great covers. When I was starting to know about them around 1979, I was fascinated by the Some Girls cover, on vinyl of course. And it was probably not the original version with the actresses...
