Threshold - Subsurface

I love the subtle addition of how the word "REFLECT" reads in the reflection.

 

I'm sure there are more. I'll post back later.

Anything by Storm Thorgerson and Hipgnosis!!

 

Aubrey Powell is his side kick with that.

 

IIRC

 

I'd also name a number of others, like Scorp's Virgin Killer (original BANNED sleeve!) and LoveDrive.

 

MSG's Built To Destroy.

I don't have pics, but Google 'em! biggrin.gif

 

Ok, one at least, this one is a favorite because the action is captured in it!

I'm normally quite apathetic when it comes to matters of ethics and political correctness, but I really have some quibbles with that Virgin Killer cover. I'm glad it was changed.

 

LoveDrive seems just weird...

I had looked for it because it's very rare, found on eBay.

 

The story is the RCA record exec had his daughter pose for that pic. It's not pornographic in nature but more art, but I can see where it caused a stir, of course!

 

 

As to Love Drive, it's just a bit of tongue in cheek fun. Scorpions also appeared in Playboy discussing their fondness for women, you never hear the stories like with Zeppelin and Def Lep, etc.

 

I think they all settled down these days.

 

I just like striking photos or graphics, so PULSE is a nice one (PF)

Zeppelin's sleeves are iconic... The Who's Who's Next (The Lifehouse Project)

Pink Floyd's Animals came about because of Roger Waters...he recently commented on his fondness for Battersea power plant as an architect student...of course.

 

You can see Battersea in the backdrop of Live8, the Floyd section of the show.

 

IIRC, that was tied to the G8 summit <?>, I think Bush recently attended another World Economic Summit but it got little news coverage.

 

I would offer up OVERKILL's FU and Then Some.... classic live album with their infamous FU song of course.
