To help me narrow the selection down to ten I used a few rules or criteria to help distinguish the great from the good. Choosing just ten covers was difficult, putting them in some kind of order would be even harder so I've chosen to present them alphabetically... enjoy!
- the cover must work with the music in some way, enhancing the overall experience.
- ... yet it should be able to stand independent from the music as a work of art in itself.
- the cover must be intriguing and withstand long hard looks without becoming boring.
- extra points for inserts, back covers and overall design.
