Faust - 3
Can - 2

The Can cover is a mess.

The Faust cover looks like an amateur Photoshop cover. Can's cover is art. I don't love it, but it's much more interesting.

I wish my paintings in MS Paint looked that good when I was 5

I'm going to have to go with Faust because I have a thing for x-ray photos.

i'm not overly fond of the colour on can's cover, but the faust one looks not only like it was done in 4 minutes, but the position of that hand is weird and aesthetically unappealing.

The Faust album cover is pretty cool with the X-Ray, but I prefer Can's. Mostly because it reminds me of how much acid they were on at the time.

Can - 5
Faust - 4
At a time like this, scorching irony, not convincing argument, is needed.

I'm not a huge fan of either covers, but I like the Can one a bit better because something about the bright orange really stands out. I don't like the typeset on the Faust one and just the title with the hand seems plain and oddly positioned.

Can - 6
Faust -5

It's really back and forth! What puts Faust over the top for me is that the sleeve is actually on clear plastic and it looks awesome with the clear vinyl.

Can- 6

I've always loved the cover for Tago Mago, it sums up the contents of the album very nicely. Not too keen on the Faust cover.
