Your favorite GENESIS album cover artwork (pick five)

  • Haha. I can picture your eye twitching as you pick it up to pay for it.

    Good god man, I didn't buy it! I'd be afraid of waking up in the middle of the night to find that skeletal winged creature perched on the end of my bed. I am morbidly obsessed with the cover. It continues to blow my mind just how the creator sat back at the end, perhaps with a contented sigh, and thought to him or herself, 'yep, that's it. It's done. It can't be bettered".


    I'm also fascinated by it's appearance in Newbury Comics. I wonder if it'll be a sleeper hit among college kids who might like getting high and staring at the cover until the various elements start to move about and speak.

    I’ll be completely honest with you, I have no

    idea what I’m looking at, nor who Nad is! I’m just amazed by the artistic liberties taken in the cover, and by the reaction on this thread!

    Nad was/is Steve Hackett's vocalist for the Genesis Revisited Concerts,

    Works with chess - Not with life

  • It would be tough to top this one:



    It's difficult to understand the thinking behind this one, if we dismiss "this man clearly has absolutely no taste".


    It's like artwork from a solo album from one of the members of Spinal Tap.


    I mean, didn't ANYONE raise the odd "Er, are we SURE this one is exactly what we're looking for?"

  • So, Trick is currently #1 in this poll. Quite a surprise to me actually. :/

    I think TOTT is one of their best album covers actually. Probably most representative of the music contained within also; you know, in a literal sense.
