Classic album covers (Part I)

Despite all the unpleasant album covers that I've already posted I shouldn't be that harsh toward the music guild and after a series of horror and it's time for a few classic album covers. Even if you have never listened to the majority of the albums definitely you have seen them on TV, magazines or music stores. Some of these covers have outlived the songs behind them and have become an essential part of contemporary music, still being copied and reproduced, giving an inspiration for other album sleeves as well.

The first part of the Classic album covers series is dedicated to the rock/metal scene.
