Alphablog: A is for Album Covers

As a musician and music lover as well as a designer, I decided that my first ‘Alphablog’ article would pay tribute to the artwork of my favourite album covers. A while ago I posted a blog on my top ten rock and metal band logos (see the articles here and here) and this article will follow a similar vein, with my top ten rock/metal album covers.

I’m sure I’m not alone in having been massively influenced by the designs displayed on the CDs I listen to; I am yet to be sold on the mp3 revolution, preferring the tactile piece of artwork in my hands with the CD. And I’m sure that a huge number of today’s working designers were originally inspired to take up their profession with the intention of working on record sleeves every day! Unfortunately it doesn’t always work out like that but that doesn’t stop us dreaming.
