Just so you know, I meant literally awesome. Perhaps it's best that you've gotten the obvious out of the way tho.

I still don't like seeing your post next to my post.

You are mistaken. White album has a fantastic sleeve. I bet your less-than-literally-awesome broken link had super weak dragons all over it or something.

I am a massive fan of minimal art.

Thus, it is quite literally, an awesome cover.

I'm a total sucker for quintessentially 80's thrash metal artwork. It is always utterly ridiculous, though the illustrating is always awesome.

My post is 100% serious. I genuinely love thrash metal. The actual content of the artwork is completely OTT, but the detail in the illustration is amazing.

Wasn't speaking about your post, the site updated when I was replying and put things out of sync. Some of the thrash metal artwork is awesome. So much stuff going on that it can only have been conceived after some kind of horrific acid trip.

Ah cool, cool.

I think it's a healthy debate regardless, even though it started a bit aggressive. Minimal artwork can be incredibly suited to the right kind of record, and be a very credible piece of art.

I don't want to quote a post that's so packed with pictures, but Soda Jerk's thrash post just ended me. I had to go through to the kitchen and get a glass of water. Ridiculous laughter.

I keep noticing new things about alot of those sleeves, like the werewolf; he has abs and pecs. Fucking mental. And the dumper truck on the Municipal Waste cover, the front wheels are tiny, and the back wheels are huge, and the whole front end is launched off the ground. Absolutely no idea what is going on. It would just tip over, frontwards. Also, on the same cover, the zombies falling off the back of the lorry are falling down what looks like a big hole, maybe like a quarry. Just unbelievable.
