When I was a kid, I was always stoked to see what was inside the sleeve of a new album that I had just purchased. I was always disappointed if it was just a paper or plastic liner. The minimum I wanted to see was a lyric sheet.

So... what are your favorite album / CD packages including cover, liner notes, lyric sheets, posters, stickers, ringtones, etc.?

My top 2 are:

Kiss Alive 2 - Came with a wicked booklet and tattoos... cool gatefold cover.

Pink Floyd - The Wall - awesome gatefold cover art and lyric liners.

Yours?

Always liked the Molly Hatchet covers done by the guy who did all the Conan-type Sword and Sorcery artwork. Can't think of his name off hand....

Orland Kurtenbach and Dennis Kearns had just been torched 8-1 by the Habs, but they still took time to come out to meet us, some fellow BC boys who were playing hockey in Montreal. THAT"S what being a Canuck is!

I have to go with Tool aenima. awesome art inside and they all work with the textured motion cover on the CD jewel case.
A close second would be Tool's 10000 Days, carboard CD sleeve, with built in 3D goggles and a small built in booklet with 3D photo's and paintings.

I was about to say that Tool is my favourite as well.

Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band is without a shadow of a doubt the best album art I have ever seen.

I'd agree with those that said Tool.

I'd also say that from years gone by, no album covers have been better than Iron Maiden's.

This is what I'm talking about, Slaytanic! Value for the dollar!

The Clothes Police at our school would ask you to change your shirt or put on another, too. Incredible artwork!

You rebel, you! You'd be one of the kids I pretend not to see in the halls when they walk by me with their weed / booze / metal / sex shirts on. They make me giggle cuz I was just the same with my purple Black Sabbath "Born Again" T.
