@ aknerd : simply post the image of the particular album by "Velvet Underground" you like most! To do that, use the 'image' button and copy/paste the link to the album cover in it!

@ jaza_m : at first I couldn't make up what the image was showing, when I googled it, but then... I saw why you didn't post the album cover here on AG... and I can add to this: smart thinking there! Because you would have MOST CERTAINLY been slapped on the whrist (if not worse) by the admins and/or mods for posting it! O.O

Anyone have any more images of nice album covers to share with us? I'm really curious to see what all the other users have in mind or fav-ed on this topic here! =D

I quite like Stratovarius' covers, especially Infinite, and their newest, Polaris:

One I really like very much, I don't know why, is this one:

I did... It was on there for a while, even, but now there's just a blank spot.

I think something is going wrong here aknerd... I still can't see your image! O.O

Tell me the name of the album and I'll post an image of it for you, ok? =)

Btw... did you use the 'image button' to post the image on the thread? =/

Well, it really is just some glitch on the site.
Look:

Yes.

Here's the same album cover, but the picture taken from a different site. Maybe it'll work now for some bizarre reason.

The best one that I've seen so far would have to be by Van Canto.

Here is the one that I like the most:

I like that one because of the coloring of the clouds.

I don't really pay attention to the covers of albums but if I notice some more that I own then I'll be sure to post them on here.

This one is great (it's their best album imo, but the cover is great too)

Finally some Iron Maiden. I'm not really that big of a fan when it comes to their music, but their art definitely deserved to be mention.

I am, however, disappointed that Molly Hatchet wasn't mentioned. Then again, I'm also not really that surprised.
