Check Out The World's Best Progressive Rock Album Covers

In The Court of the Crimson King – King Crimson 

Barry Godber, a computer programmer, died of a heart attack soon after he painted the album cover. Robert Fripp, who now owns the cover, said this about the artwork: “If you cover the smiling face, the eyes reveal an incredible sadness. What can one add? It reflects the music.”  

Thick as a Brick – Jethro Tull  

It took longer to design the cover than it took to produce its music. This mock-newspaper is full of puns, cleverly hidden jokes, a frank review of the album, the lyrics that are presented as a poem, and journalistic entertainment.

The Raven That Refused to Sing – Steven Wilson 

Despite the variations in their tempos, one can relate the album art to any song of the album, no matter what song you play.

Animals – Pink Floyd

The album is a critique of the social-political conditions of the Britain in the late 70s, somewhere depicting the same on its cover image where a pig is floating between two chimneys on the Battersea Power Station.

Weather Systems - Anathema 

A beautiful image of a dissected earth surrounded by clear azure and scattered cotton-clouds is synonymous with the vastness and depth that the tracks on this album explore.
