Coolest Album Covers

I just love the look of vintage album covers.  Yeah, there are some cool modern album covers too, but you have to admit that these are fucking rad.  So here’s my top five vintage picks in no particular order:

Disraeli-Gears

Cream’s second album, Disraeli Gears, is for sure my favorite album cover of all time. I love how busy and psychedelic the pattern is.  It also features their faces and name without these things overpowering the cover. I also love how even though the dominant color is pink,  the album still looks badass.

 

red_hot_chili_peppers_californication

Another favorite is Californication by the Red Hot Chili Peppers.   The orange and blue really pop in this one, and the pool scene is really neat.

 

odessy and oracle by the zombies

Next is another psychedelic design, Odessey and Oracle by The Zombies. I love the flowers and the characters; it looks like something out of Alice In Wonderland with that LSD/trippy feel.

 

led-zeppelin-physical-graffiti

Led Zeppelin’s Physical Graffiti is so urban and grunge. It’s effortlessly cool.

 

Sgt._Pepper's_Lonely_Hearts_Club_Band

My final choice is Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band by The Beatles. The flowers and palm trees give it a tropical feel, and it’s nice how John, Paul, George, and Ringo stand out from all the other people with their crazy costumes.

So there you have it, my top five vintage album covers of all time.  Stay tuned for a post on the coolest modern album covers.
