^ Wow! That is some really lavish album art, Chula! I especially like the kind of framed-book format and the muted colours.

Blimey eric ! It's a real surprise to see you here again after so long. I hope you'll be hanging around to give us the benefit of your musical knowledge again.

That is some pretty fantastic album art.

Looks like theres half a fantasy novel written in there too.

The ones I love the most are from the Prospective 21e Siècle series.
Not only were they beautiful covers that reflected light in fun ways,
but they had a wonderful texture to the touch. I still cherish these.

Here's a site with good pictures of about a couple dozen releases.

and this guy below shows off some of his collection
(notice the sound when he slides them against each other
and that may give you some idea of the cover's texture).

I love pretty much all of Suede's cover art, though it's a shame I don't love all the albums.

That Herb Alpert cover is probably one of the most parodied covers around.
Most of them are pretty funny.
