    calyx wins (or loses, depending on how you keep score) the thread.

    My number one spot has to be ELP's Tarkus closely followed by Trilogy
    Tarkuks is great! A classic cover.

    A while ago I would have nominated the cover of "Strictly Inc." Strangely though I have come to appreciate it - I can't say I like it, but I find it funny. Perhaps I like the music so much that it's changed my feelings about the cover.

    There comes a point when a cover is so bad it's almost good - the Gong one for example.

    I will. Peter max, that is one half-assed piece of worthless shit you turned in.

    (Unlike many fans, I do like the album itself though.)


    As for GftO, I like the basic idea, but it's those various tube-things flying around everywhere that don't seem to have any purpose or meaning that throw me off.
    I agree with everything you're saying, IPR.

    This Steve Walsh solo album is quite dreadful.

    Rush | first album: Actually very strong in terms of graphics, it's just those "we recorded all night at a studio at a discount rate and couldn't take a bath before this picture" pictures on the back cover that ruin it. Ironically, even though Gary Lee Weinrib has one of the worst photos on a debut album, he now seems to be the band member that women are nuts about. Go figure.

    Yes | 90125: After years of wishing Yes would become more popular, they finally did, and I then didn't like their music. The cover really isn't that bad as a graphic cover idea, but as a band that had some of the best covers in progressive rock with Dean, it wasn't necessarily ugly. That would come with the next studio album - one of the worst covers ever, just from the design/color choices.

    And is discussed in depth on the allmusic.com website: http://www.allmusic.com/album/scheme...r-mw0000339123

    Pretty damned funny review of the cover art, regardless of the music.
