Rush has the best

Permanent Waves

Moving Pictures

Hemispheres
(They're on a brain, the sculpture on the right and the business man on the left, quite genius)

This one takes the cake, A Farewell to Kings

The only one I see that I really like is the first Velvet Underground... the rest seems like a lot of prog-rock hooey...

Some of mine (note the absence of gnomes, wizards, or tubular bells):















""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."

The last one, if you're a graphic designer, would love to know about the amount of branding that this album had... everything of theirs from this era was based on that orange loud speaker...
