Your favourite NON-Dean cover?

Postby Kalingzeye » Sun May 04, 2008 6:13 am

I've been meaning to make this poll for a while!
Please forgive if it's wonky, it's my first time makin one.

So there's been so many polls about the traditional Dean cover art, but I've always been curious as to people's opinions on the different covers that weren't made by him! I'm not really gonna include the less artistic ones, like the first couple of albums that are just like... them standing there... but I've got most of the rest. :D

So, poll aside, any comments? I'll post mine after a few~~ :cool:

[color=LemonChiffon]_______1972: Time And A Word (???)

[color=LemonChiffon]_______[/color]1977: Going For The One (By Hipgnosis- a company affiliated with Roger Dean~)
[color=LemonChiffon]_______[/color]1978: Tormato (Also by Hipgnosis)
[color=LemonChiffon]_______[/color]1983: 90125 (By Garry Mouat for Assorted Images)

Time and a Word has an interesting graphic on the inside, with the nude chick in the window

Going for the One has cool pics on the inside. The cover is actually pretty good, too. Those buildings are in L.A.

Really? Coooool! :p *sigh* I guess one of life's unsolved mysteries is who that guy is on the front... and what the heck YES's idea behind that was, haha~~~

Yeah, I'm most tempted to vote for Mag, as well! I like the cover and think the pamphlet insert art was really interesting... that time/dimension machine of Jon's (can't remember what it's called atm)... I think it's super cool. I'm also sorta tempted to go with the 90125 or Big Gen just because I'm such a sucker for chunky pop-art text and gaudy colors, haha~ It's funny, the cover art for those two albums isn't that interesting, but the single art was similar but much more creative and appealing to the eye... like the Rhythm of Love Single looks really cool. o_o

Hmmm . . .

Definitely NOT Tormato . . . :rolleyes:

The American version of TAAW is pretty uninspired. Ditto TYA. Just shots of the band.

GFTO . . . well, it has its obvious perks . . . ;)

I sort of like the stark graphics on 90125 and BG.

And Talk is pretty cool in that it's done by Peter Max, although certainly not his BEST work . . . the T-shirts from the tour were great though!

And I like the spacey drawings on Mag . . .

I'll have to mull it over and get back to you . . .
