    Neither of which were disliked at the time they were released.

    My number one spot has to be ELP's Tarkus closely followed by Trilogy

    Your images are too small to make out any detail. For which relief much thanks.

    ↑ From the same designer as this?



    Letting this one slide a bit, as it’s one of those “rarities and unreleased” types of albums. It still doth verily suck.

    Not really prog, but this original album-cover is in my collection


    There is also another cover, which I prefer.

    I will always remember for the dumbest attempt at a German song title.

    "Von am Lebem desto Strum" was supposed to mean "From beyond the Storm" but
    it means "Von am Lebem desto Strum" in English too (it's gibberish)

    Holy crap is that bad.

    In fact, we need a whole new set of adjectives for this thread.

    Okay, but if memory serves, those are animated photos of the band's fans from their small online Yahoo Group - so, clever Genesis lyric misquote aside, the implication was (I think) you fans are precious to us like giant chunks of gold.

    I certainly understand the concept (it's actually a clever idea) & love the band but the artwork is just awful.

    Late to the party, but given the resources available to the band at the time, that Love Beach cover is absolutely inexcusable. Honorable mention to anything Magna Carta released in the late 90s-early 2000s.
