Eighth in a series of polls started 8 years ago, involving picking a band and trying to find people's favorite album art of that particular group. 

Choose your favorite album, based strictly on the album art. These polls are meant for studio albums only, but please feel free to mention your favorite live/ep/comp/etc cover arts as well.

This time will feature Heldon as the band in the spotlight.

Itís Always Rock and Roll. Difficult album to get through (2LP), but the cover is gorgeous.

It is a good one. Even the covers I don't like overall have some appeal in one way or another which made this a compelling choice for this series.

Listening to Heldon now for the first time - good idea this, like it. I vote for Agneta Nilsson, strangely appealing that cover... for this kind of music.

Listening to heldon is always a good idea. Clap

Aside from only chaos is real, it is a highly rewarding experience all around.

Interface is the most iconic cover but I'm drawn to the strange cover of Agneta Nilsson. It's been a while since I heard any of them though, I keep returning to Stand By when I'm in the mood.

I generally go for Un Reve... or Interface, but I quite like all of them (sans Only Chaos...of course).

The Angretta album cover is a turn off for me.....but I love the music.
I like to feel the suspense when you're certain you know I am there.....
