I have always loved that one. The colour work alone is just stunning.

Roger Dean did a fantastic job on that. In many ways I prefer this over most of the work he did for Yes.

The covers for Ummagumma, Tanz ... , and Bitches are filled with such imagination, but I'm gonna have to go with something that is simple and beautiful - the one for Timewind.

Uhh nice pick AndreyCool In fact I love the whole "coffee trilogy" art work, Blackdance, Picture Music(It's not the "right" one we have on PA imo, there is another with a chessboard pattern in it) and Timewind.

^ Albeit Irrlicht doesn't have that "coffee" in it, I'd still count it in in my head as it features one of those mysterious insect-like, almost-skull headed creatures, alone, under the blue, with a broken leg. Every one of those covers has some kind of feeling to offer. Seems like a colony of lonely creeps, angels or demons or whatever. Maybe some kind of a visual message on the state of a particular community or society.

Well, yeah, you got like 22 choices.

I think Irrlicht and Cyborg are connected in a similar manner as the coffee trilogy is. That's also evident from the art work methinksSmile

Can't count how many times I've dreamed myself away looking into that cover art with the mysterious and hypnotic music oozing in the back.

Alpha Centauri. Couldn't care less about the music, but that is one amazing album cover.

The Ash Ra Tempel artwork is one of my favorites.  Easy choice for me, though lots of goodies on here.

There's not one album cover here I don't like, so it's a touch choice. I think I'll go with Sextant, as it hasn't got any votes yet.
