Cover art is a huge part of an album in my opinion. I love holding onto it whilst listening, and preferably in vinyl sized format. So yeah easy, out of these which is your fave?

What's the bottom Roger Dean cover on the Vertigo label just above ??  I want it !!!!
I voted for Ash Ra Tempel - I just love the brown & black colours with the Egyptian themes, the way you open up the side flaps to reveal interesting pics inside and the tripped-out 'poem'.  And the music ??  Takes me right away........

Do you mean the one with "Gentle Giant - Octopus" written on it? That was the original UK cover, it was released in the US with a different cover:
 
The other Roger Dean cover is "One Fine Morning" by Canadian Jazz-Rock/Fusion band Lighthouse

^ 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.

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

The Lucio Battisti cover is just beautiful, and yes, very well described by Finnforest. It's like looking at a time gone by which one can reminisce about but never live through again, the best moments of childhood. I should try the album out!

Ummagumma is a very clever sleeve design, though the album doesn't really live up to it.
 
But the best album art ever is Grave New World by Strawbs. The album is brilliant but it's worth buying for the cover and insert booklet alone.

The 'Dude exposing his manhood' lol is a painting by William Blake.  If you ever go to an art gallery you will find quite a few of these 'dudes exposing their manhood'  sometimes in 3D !  Shocking but true!  I don't know how they get away with this filth!

The "dude" is a representation of a God. The painting is "Glad Day" by William Blake. Seeing a set of men's bits almost every day (when my stomach allows) the sight of someone's manhood doesn't really bother me, frankly.
 
The inner artwork borrows heavily from Buddhist and mediaeval religious imagery and is magnificent.

What I'm saying is that if I was in charge of album cover art for my own studio albums, I would never have something like that on the cover, even if a good number of artists of the past decided on having their works featuring the manhood. But that's just me. Guess, I am narrow-minded, but nevertheless ... .

How is Ummagumma winning? It's by far the weakest here and is just a bad cover in general imo. 

But then again, it's made by that one band.

Cover art can certainly play a major role in an album release however the name of a band also can be beneficial, i.e. there's a rock band called Pussy (seriously) they do have an add advantage on the positive side for reviewers, afterall how could any male not like the band ahum....  name Big smile

^^We are slightly mad, I'll admit to that. Scandinavia is full of people who act like members of Monty Python, unintentionally that is. Maybe it's those who come up with the weird branding?
We genuinely have licorice here named Spunk. Comes in a little black box

In line with the poll at hand here, then I just gotta say that my current favourite is Guapo's Five Suns. Looks so unique. Something like a red flower explosion on top of a kaleidoscopic black n white background. Just stunning imo.
Anyway I change my mind every hour, so there you go.

No, and I must say that's the very first time I've ever seen a woman being fecked by a swan.
It is actually from a classic Greek myth.  Zeus seduced Leda in the form of a swan by the river Eurotas.  From the union came Helen (of Troy fame), Castor & Polydeuces (the Gemini), and Clytaemnestra (who became the wife of Agamemnon).  Most images of the event are a little more, ahem, discreet.

A genius work of the sonically melded color brown that is all the colors mixed together. It brings a really eclectic feel to an otherwise drab golden crown. The music is good as well.

I really had to go with Bitches Brew on this one... It's one of those album covers you just kind of want to muralize on a wall, you know?

As for non-prog, I really dig Aphex Twin's "On EP" cover. Has the typical Aphex logo, with a few cool things here and there. It's awesome.

The best prog cover ever was Jethro Tull's Thick as a Brick, a fantastic concept newspaper, very funny and very clever. Of the ones on the list, GG's Octopus. All hail Roger Dean!
