For any reason. I like Jacks Manniquin’s “Everything in Transit”.

For me it’s the memory of it and not the actual art but it’s Duran Duran “Rio”.

Lemon It features a rendering of a city during the day and at night. It’s very, very cool.

I used to love the real vinyl album cover for Allman Brothers “Eat a Peach.”

Edit: the new Animal Collective album cover. I haven’t heard the album, but the cover is mind-blowing.

@Mamradpivo The KY album art is a rendering of a city during day and night? That seems a bit abstract even for me :D

The album art for Castaways and Cutouts by The Decemberists is cool.
Fragile by Yes has a cool album cover too.
And Pink Moon by Nick Drake.

i don’t know why but wheels of fire by cream always comes to mind when i hear this question. i don’t like the actual album, but i’ve always been really attracted to the cover. there are probably a bunch that i like more, but that one just comes to mind immediately.

@Mamradpivo i had that in green on my myspace for months just to make everyone that stopped by dizzy. :p

@Jamspoon Agreed, all Decemberists albums have pretty cool art. The Lemon Jelly album has the city during the day on top, and then a rendering of it at night below. I suppose it’s in the liner notes, instead of the cover too.

the JM album art is great… love the simplicity of R.E.M.‘s automatic for the people… the lightheartedness of sigur ros’s med sud i eyrum vid spilum endalust…

I know it’s not very original, but I love many of The Beatles covers. Sgt. Pepper’s of course, Hollyhocks, Yesterday and Today, even Meet The Beatles are magnificent.

I love that Animal Collective cover!

Disraeli Gears! I love the colors and the psychedelic-ness.
25 O’ Clock! Ditto.
Exciter! It’s in your face and not at the same time. Very clever.
Rubber Soul! I admit I only love this one because John’s such a sexy beast on it.
Island Life! I think Grace Jones is a butta-face. However, I’d kill to have that body and that sort of mastery over my body. Look at that. I can’t do that. Can you hold a pose like that? Damn!

If I put a lot of thought into it, there’d be too many to list. But my immediate reaction to this question was the album art for Deja Entendu… album by Brand New.

whackyrusty's avatar

Jim O’Rourke’s albums Insignificance and Eureka come to mind.

jasongarrett's avatar

I love the old Pink Floyd albums.
Wish You Were Here

aprilsimnel's avatar

@toomuchcoffee911 – That cover reminds me very much of a street in Sydney near Bondi Beach.

toomuchcoffee911's avatar

@aprilsimnel I’d want to go there then. It looks very peaceful.

@Blondesjon hahahaha
lurve for wham!

Snoop Dogg’s cover art for Doggy Style . I have it on a t-shirt, and the reactions I get sometimes are priceless.
