Angry Machines is gazillion times worse than Lock Up the Wolves, just saying...

Interstingly, Martin Popoff, author of Light Beyond the Black, ranks it up there with Holy Diver and Last in Line.

Any and all AC/DC covers.

"Fly on the Wall" is an awesome cover, so is "Who Made Who". For it's simplicity with that of just a pencil (I believe), "Flick of the Switch" kicks ass.

I guess I'm a bit biased since I just hate AC/DC Razz

That and you have an Iron Maiden avatar, who are the kings of coolness when it comes to artistic covers. I would say "Dirty Deeds", "The Razors Edge" and "For Those About to Rock" are probably the most boring covers, but otherwise, I think AC/DC has pretty cool artistic sense when it comes to deciding on a cover.

Haha yeah, I'm pretty spoiled then when it comes to album covers. Razz I think their (AC/DC) covers definitely do reflect the music perfectly.

Here's a question, album covers the look/feel NOTHING like the music within?

Your avatar Very Happy The cover is better than most of the tunes.

I second that! I just listened to this the morning after seeing his avatar. The album really is pretty bad for Iron Maiden standards. I like about half of the tunes, which for a Maiden album isn't good.

I dunno if it's really THAT bad. I mean, it's definitely one of the more lackluster Maiden albums (the only reason it's my AV is because I have no pictures saved on my computer save No Prayer because I had to re-size it for a friend) but I think there are some great ideas just not executed well. The thing was recorded in a barn which was problem number one, haha. The production is pretty bad. I think it's definitely a fun record though. Maybe not as intricate and polished as it's predecessor, but fun nonetheless.

I think a lot of Power Metal bands have FANTASTIC artwork, but the albums are unmemorable. I can't think of a specific one right now, but the list is vast.

For Those About To Rock is one of the best covers ever. Especially in LP format.

Led Zeppelin Houses of the Holy is in poor taste.

I'm surprised that Lovedrive made the top of the list seeing as it's by the same band that gave us one super-disturbing album cover with Virgin Killer. scratch blech sick

Am I right, people?

That is perhaps the first album cover that comes to mind when I think of awful album covers.

Also, although the band is perhaps not well known enough to crack a list like this, Waco Jesus - The Destruction of Commercial Scum deserves to be mentioned. Despite the album covers mc666 posts, I am not going to post the album cover for it.

Having a really terrible album cover is bad but having four attempts at it and them all being terrible is genius! Very Happy

I'm going to rank these from 'best' to worst



Yup, incredibly I think this is the best one





But there is still no beating the original
