With the ‘album’ in it’s physical form pretty much dead, great cover art has become something of  a lost art. If you think back on the greatest album covers of all time they all perfectly captured the energy and tone of the albums they represented, and have pop cultural touchstones. Who can forget the Rolling Stone/Simpsons parody of Nirvana‘s Nevermind cover, or the countless number of rappers who’ve referenced Nas‘ Illmatic album cover, or the great Jay-Z commercial where he re-enacted all of his album covers. Here is our look at 10 of the most iconic album covers of all time.
