there was a lot of topics for the best album artworks, but the last one I'd found is from 2017 (appologies if there is a burried thread from this year somewhere in this board), so I'm starting a new one.
As a designer I usually judge the song by its cover at first look, and in the most cases I'm right, and I'm sure I'm not the only one. If the artwork is good, it's much more likely for me to play it, rather than a song with a boring one. The easiest way to remember which is the song is also by its cover.
So the rules are as simple as they look. Share the best looking picture of the album/single in your oppinion, and why you think the artwork is great.
I'm starting with the not so recently released Egypt Station by McCartney
The cover is a pure piece of art for me. It pretty much sums up the design trend of the last years - chaotic balance and abnormal forms. While it may look pretty overwhelming at first look it engage the viewer to look deeper and unlocks their creativity.
Share your picks and have fun!
