This is a thread that's been done many times and my answer remaisn the same each and everytime;

A Show Of Hands.

If we're excluding live albums I give my vote to Hemispheres.

Ooh, good call.  I was gonna say Power Windows, but I really adore the animation in SOH.  In fact, the cover image is my desktop right now!

Edit: OT, but I love your Genesis sig...my fave album from them!

I've always been really fond of the GUP cover. It's so... haunting I guess is the word to describe it.

Thanks, I love that album, think I'd probably put it second behind Wind & Wuthering personally. It certainly has the best cover art since we're on the subject though. wink.gif

I never used to like Grace Under Pressure's cover, but now it's become my favorite. I just can't imagine painting something that cool.

I also really like Test For Echo, A Farewell To Kings, and Fly By Night a lot.

Not that it's my personal favorite; but, it's my understanding those in the Rush camp spent the most $ on developing the Moving Pictures album cover (and reverse).

Hugh Syme is a fantastic surrealist...

Having said that, today (and just off the top) I have call it 'Too Close to Call' between AFTK and p/g.

I suppose its a matter of taste and/or an individual's own unique critera when making such assessments.

I really love the GUP cover.  I think it’s the most interesting of all their covers.  Hugh Syme is such a great artist.
