Because of the historical connotations of the title combined with the album cover... Subtle aye?

Well from the Prog corner of the globe, I always loved Lark's Tongues In Aspic & Brain Salad Surgery as just great names for albums.
 
But from the RocknRoll world it's Joe Walsh's The Smoker You Get The Player You Drink album...you just know that came from someone really stoned at a studio session. Cool

Days of Future Passed

I've always thought The Dark Side of The Moon sounded cool, plus its iconic.

A Trick of The Tail
Physical Graffiti
Presence
In Through The Out Door

I thought Selling England By The Pound was an excellent title (definitely Genesis' best).

Others (as far as prog goes):
Harmonium - If There Was A Fifth Season (translated)
Sigur Ros - A Good Beginning (Agaetis Byrjun)
Steve Hackett - Voyage Of The Acolyte
Marillion - Script For A Jester's Tear
Yes - Tales From Topographic Oceans
Dream Theater - Metropolis Pt. 2: Scenes From A Memory
Porcupine Tree - The Sky Moves Sideways
The Moody Blues - In Search Of The Lost Chord
Hawkwind - Warrior On The Edge Of Time
Atomic Rooster - Death Walks Behind You
Van Der Graaf Generator - The Least We Can Do Is Wave At Each Other

I also liked the idea of an untitled album (as Led Zeppelin famously did amongst others like Peter Gabriel). LOL

I recall seeing an LP at a used record store by, what I gather to be, a Punk band called NO - the title of the album was 'Glory For The sh*t-For-Brains' ......?
