If you remember going shopping for music in record stores, or maybe if you still do, you know that album covers are almost just as important as the music that they represent.

There are albums that we've had sitting around to look at in our bedrooms for years, albums that were so special to us that we played them until they almost wouldn't play anymore at all, and in rare cases, even albums that we bought blindly just because we liked the cover.
