If there's already a thread in the same vein feel free to hang, draw and quarter me while blasting Wattsville Blues into my ears through headphones at just below the level it takes to burst an eardrum.

The design from the tour tshirt with the tigers on would have been infinitely better than the official SATT cover, which was awwwful.

So hard to choose; I love all their covers, but the highest has got to be The Holy Bible.

It's just the impact it had on my memory: way before I considered myself a fan, I remembered that there was a band with an anorexic singer who killed himself or something and the cover had this person who looking at himself/herself through a mirror from all angles and seeing nothing but how fat he/she was. Imagine how thrilled I was to see the cover again

JfPL (love the art, love how striking it is)
THB (as stark and ordered as the album itself)
GATS (striking, again; the odd wood/metallic tone; not crazy on the font)
GT (great photo, great font, love the tattoo use; sad that the colour came out wrong)
PFAYM (aesthetically pleasant, greyscale, composition; doesn't say very much about the album)
Lifeblood (suits the album; could've used a better blood-painting-thing for the actual cover)
TIMTTMY (again, suits the album, setting is gorgeous; poses look like they just woke up and don't know where they are <- bad photo choice)
EMG (love the neatness, font, empty brackets; dislike the portraits and colour scheme)
SATT (I just don't understand this choice)
KYE (THISISADESIGNDISASTER)
