Which Album Has The Best Artwork?
« on: October 25, 2006, 07:49:49 PM »

Ha! Another useless poll! I really like those the best. What album has the best artwork in your opinion? Multiple choice is possible!

I got the same response when I voted for Rubber Soul.

I've always like that cover best.  It was particularly nice hearing Paul tell how it all came about in Anthology.

I voted for Abbey Road, Revolver, Sgt. Pepper, White Album, Beatles For Sale & With The Beatles since it was multiple choice & doesn't work for some reason.

Revolver just has that actual drawing effect so it gets my vote! Even though I think Abbey Road and With the Beatles are two very creative images!

My vote's for Revolver.  Second is Rubber Soul.  Given that the two albums could be volume one and volume two anyway, it's no big surprise.

You really need the LP to appreciate the cover - you could look at it every day for a month, go away and come back in a year and see something in the collage that you never saw before.  It's amazing.

I also like the job Klaus did on the three Anthology covers and the subsequent "box" packaging.  That was very cool also.   8)

(Oh and by the way, the voting worked for me)

Here's another clue for you all; the Walrus was Paul...

I can't believe I'm still the only voter for Beatles For Sale. It's a classic bit of Robert Freeman photography Clearly portraying the downbeat mood of the album. Great stuff, and their first gatefold!

I feel your pain,  BlueMeanie! Yet they had many good album covers, just as they had many good albums. Drat this slavish adherence to quality! But it's good fun to pick one. (I picked Rubber Soul; just love the colors and the shapes of their faces.)
