Best Vinyl Art 2009

Art Vinyl has posted their nominees for the best album art 2009. Unlike fiction, where I often find myself removing hardcover book jackets to avoid being influenced, I am forever drawn to album art for vinyl.

Half of these albums I doubt I'd ever listen to, but I wouldn't be surprised if I picked them up because the covers looked so great.

So, based on Art Vinyl's nominees, here are my top ten picks (click to see art):

  1. Mastodon - Crack the Skye
  2. The Mars Volta - Octahedron
  3. Bat for Lashes - Two Suns
  4. Volcano Choir - Unmap
  5. Biffy Clyro - Only Revolutions
  6. Skunk Anansie - Smashes Trashes
  7. Baroness - Blue Record
  8. Teeth of the Sea - Orphaned by the Ocean
  9. Massive Attack - Splitting the Atom
  10. Kelpe - Microscope Contents

I like the Orphaned by the Ocean painting.
