Don't worry I'll be doing some Hipgnosis covers soon.

As much as I love that cover and that album, I'm gonna have to go with Ian on this one. That cover is just wizard.

Hawkwind - 1
Ian Gillan Band - 4

Edit: But why does the IGB one have Jewish stars on it?

As little as I like Ian Gillan, that's a Chris Foss spaceship, and I always loved his work, so Gillan gets the nod. Anyone brought up on the likes of 2000AD or Starlord will know his designs, and it evokes pleasant memories of a somewhat more innocent childhood, as well as an enduring interest in sci-fi ie a geek was born!

No you don't.

Hawkwind's cover is sharper.

I agree. More dynamic design and a little more evocative than "here's a bee ship".

Not really a fan of either, but I prefer the one that looks more like a spaceship than a bumblebee.
