    ok, instead pf top 5/10 tracks, what's peoples favourite album covers?

    in no particular order...

    Joy Division : Unknown Pleasures
    (amazing minimal graphic, radio waves from a dwarf star or something like that)

    The Stone Roses : The Stone Roses
    (a Jackson Pollok-esque cover by the guitarist John Squire, with lemon slices inspired bu the 1960's Paris student riots, they used lemons to counter the tear gas, so i read)

    God Speed You Black Emperor : f (sharp) a (sharp) infinity
    (hand finished LP with original B&W print tacked onto cover, and a package inside with train-flattened canadian cent, a 'faulty schematics of a ruined machine [to scale]' blueprint, plus more)

    Crass : The Feeding Of The 5000
    (realist surreal painting by gee vaucher, bit John Yatesish like some Dead Kennedys sleeves, but better (without the DK's humour though) and she was the person who created the circled A anarchist symbol, apparently)

    Spiritualized : Ladies and gentlemen we are floating in space BP
    (pharmaceutical package, CD comes in a plastic, foil sealed tray, tracklisting sheet is 'Patient Product Information', plus there was a limited version with two trays of twelve 3" CDs, one for each track, both versions actually packaged in a pharmaceutical factory)

    Primal Scream : Vanishing Point/XTRMNTR
    (both albums in a kind of hacked up, cut'n'paste collage style (QuarkXPress i think) by Intro design, who do all the Blood and Fire reggae reissue albums too, well nasty)

    Unkle : Psyence Fiction
    (can't go wrong with a bit of Futura)

    Sex Pistols : Never Mind The Bollocks
    (no explanation needed really, went to see a Jamie Reid exhibition (also jointly showing Banksy strangely enough, his stuff was at the other end of the hall) apart from the sex pistols prints, since he became a druid, his recent stuff is all new-age hippyish now)

    The Velvet Underground : The Velvet Underground and Nico
    (again, no explanation needed, i have the original LP, but the banana sticker is long gone unfortunately)

    Big Black : Songs About Fucking
    (got to respect Steve Albini, he despises CDs so much he released Shellac's 1000 Hurtz on vinyl in a box set cheaper than the CD, but the vinyl comes with the CD in the box too)
