The cover of an album is an essential part of it and very often it is the first people think of it when an album's name is mentioned. There are covers that have become more famous that the product itself and even people, who don't listen to the singer/band can immediately make the connection. For the last 50 years the music business has developed to such an extent that the artwork to an album may be indicative for the quality and content of the album without even playing it. Some compete with themselves creating more bizarre covers with every next albums, others keep up to the plain, but well known artistic work and there are some to which this is a full load of nonsense. No matter which ones you support one thing is for sure: you all know very well the covers of all your favourite albums!
Here are ten of my favourite covers and they are showed in no strict order:
Björk - Homogenic
Röyksopp - The Understanding
Kylie Minogue - Impossible Princess
Marilyn Manson - Mechanical Animals
