It's cool, but I think that the image on the inside with Meg avoiding the mouse would have been even better.

(though the actual LP cover is better, with The Beatles name only noticeable by rubbing your hands across the raised surface)

(not a fan of the music but...)

(this one speaks for itself as best parody cover ever)

Honestly, I think that's a really boring, mundane album cover....This one however:



...is pretty great.  Adds a visual element to the title of the album.

""Money doesn't come into it. It never has. I do what I do because it's all that I am." - Morrissey

"Lacan stressed more and more in his work the power and organizing principle of the symbolic, understood as the networks, social, cultural, and linguistic, into which a child is born. These precede the birth of a child, which is why Lacan can say that language is there from before the actual moment of birth. It is there in the social structures which are at play in the family and, of course, in the ideals, goals, and histories of the parents. This world of language can hardly be grasped by the newborn and yet it will act on the whole of the child's existence."

Wow... with the exception of the Rolling Stones, I don't really care for any of those.

David Grubbs-related albums have a way of winning these contests.  So minimal, so powerful; here's another:
