Chill Out - The KLF
i really like this album cover. mostly because i'm from texas. album concept involves the American south, and this is not a picture (AT ALL) of the American south. Since these guys are from Liverpool, i imagine it's a picture taken in England?

Come to Daddy EP - Aphex Twin
okay, some might say for an Aphex Twin cover, Windowlicker is the obvious choice. I really like this EP however, because it is a little more subtle. the first time i heard the record i was in a store listening to what was pretty bizarre music to me at the time, and while causally looking at this picture of a group of children, i realized they all had the same hideous face super-imposed on each of them.

For various reasons these are some of my favorite album covers. I've commented on a few, but probably should have let the artwork speak for itself.

Good choices. I've always thought Abraxas is an amazing cover--we may have talked about this before, but did you know it's a take on the Annunciation?
