Post album covers you like/love. Head Gardner posting it in the 'What are you listening to?' thread reminded me of how much I love this one.

Thee Oh Sees' "Castlemania" is one of my favourite album covers of all time. It just resonates with me so much.

Also reminds me of another one I love:

Have long loved this cover (I remember dear Serge not being keen on it, though).

That Serge was fallible gives hope for us all.

I tended to agree with him there, looks too much like 80's newage tack.

One of ECM's mainstay designs, that - the flat, Rothko-esque bi, tri or multi-sected plane, either done by playing with a photograph of the horizon or graphically/collage constructed.  Simple, but usually handsome and effective:

Although I'd say in more recent years some of the covers have begun to merge into one a bit - not helped by the reduction of typefaces down to pretty much two - the cover art on ECM never really fails to impress.

Tremendous album this, too.

Good shout on Reatard. Blood Visions is another favourite of mine. It helps that it's also a scorching 10/10 album, too.
