Best Album Covers of All Time

atkins-bookshelf-musicIn 2011, Rolling Stones Magazine asked its readers to vote on the best album covers of all time. Not surprisingly, most of the favorite album covers were from the 1960s to the 1970s, back when poring over every detail of an album cover and liner notes brought as much enjoyment as listening to the album’s music. Here are the top ten best album covers of all time:

1. The Beatles, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band
2. Pink Floyd, Dark Side of the Moon
3. Nirvana, Nevermind
4. The Beatles, Abbey Road
5. The Clash, London Calling
6. The Rolling Stones, Sticky Fingers
7. The Beatles, Revolver
8. Bruce Springsteen, Born To Run
9. Pink Floyd, Wish You Were Here
10. The Velvet Underground, The Velvet Underground & Nico
