    What is it about artwork on albums that grabs your attention?

    I once thought this album cover was so cool that I actually got the clown tatoo'd on me. Oh well Hindsight........Ive had 15 years to block out that bad decision, but the clown on my arm refuses to let me forget.

    I love the old skool 90's Death Metal album covers.
    Especially those drawn by Chris Moyen.

    I'm showing my age, but here's an album cover that not only impacted me as a kid, but continues to bring back fond memories everytime my iPod shows it. lol

    That's the alternative cover, isn't it, designed to placate the moral majority? I seem to recall my copy had a giant robot spider jumping out on a rapist.:)

    Ah yes, I knew there was a robot in that GNR cover somewhere, but it's so long since I bought that album I forgot. And Eddie rules forever as far as I'm concerned.:cool:

    Ok, I still haven't really decided on one, but I really like some of Storm Thorgerson's covers, especially Muse:
