The Clash — London Calling? Eagles — Hotel California? Amy Winehouse cover is nothing iconic. Everyone in the comments took this straight up the ass omfg.
If you wanna share your own favorite album covers make your own damn list instead of shitting on the opinion of this persons fav album covers. Surely it is about the quality of the album artwork rather than whichever artist happens to be your flavour of the month. Obviously whoever wrote this article is an absolute moron. There may be 5 that qualify, but the rest should not be in this list. I love Purple Rain. It is my favorite album of all time, but to choose that album cover art to represent him is a misstep.

Latterly a yoga teacher, she went on to marry Chris Jagger, whose brother has an interesting tale of his own… Pink Floyd: The Dark Side Of The Moon One of the most iconic album covers of all time, created by one of the most iconic design teams of all time.
Prince: Purple Rain An unavoidable image and album from the mids through the rest of the decade, Purple Rain introduced the world to Prince as an enigmatic presence ready to disappear at will into the night, all Little Richard pompadour and wry smile, as if in on a joke that no one else could ever hope to understand.
NWA: Straight Outta Compton From sound to lyrical content and imagery, Straight Outta Compton defined the emerging gangsta rap genre, and its artwork has gone down in history. This was Queen at their best. I've always been a fan of Queen's early years less so with their stadium filling latter years , they always had a great raw punky edge, but obviously liked to experiment.
This release gives you two great live performances from the Rainbow, one from the Queen II album and the other from the Sheer Heart Attack album.
I really like the song choices and the quality of performance is to a very high standard Brian May is particularly amazing. How these guys played such intricate parts while singing in harmony is baffling. One mark against this release is that it's perhaps been mastered a little too loud, so you need to do some compensating.
It's a nice package with a fold out digi-pack case and an informative inside booklet with details about the gigs. If you love early Queen then this is a must-have. Great concert full of Freddies flamboyance. The audio is great with both a 2.
The picture looks good and clear and while there is a notice on the box stating it is "the high resolution may reveal limitations on the original recording" i barely noticed anything apart from the very occassional split second appearance of lines in some shots when the lights were dim.
The blu ray comes with a booklet with some photos and other info. The running time for the concert is around 1 hour 15 minutes and the bonus footage from a lost concert is ten minutes. Although recorded in the first few years of the meteoric rise to superstardom, I think its all the better for it. The songs are superb , of course, but this is a live album capturing their early recorded output which had leanings towards the rock and pomp end of the early 70's.
The quality of the sound by todays' standard is a little low, but the warmth of the occasion simply spills out into their songs and the album is a worthy attribute to the extensive back catalogue.
Much more than a 'trawling the depths' album - this is worthy of any release and should have been so at the time! In the days before Bohemian Rhapsody, this band where a killer rock band. I'll turn a blind ear to the tweaking of the audio on this one backing vocals have been dubbed in it sounds brilliant and good work on what was a low budget filming in It's out!
Queen in , on the verge of greatness showcasing their new material in their full outlandish Zandra Rhodes outfits. This is a must own for any Queen fan that loves the early bands material.
The restoration is done well, and the show is the full show not the cut down heavily edited one from the Box Of Flix. It's worth noting, it's format, not widescreen, obviously, and the Blu-Ray release in particular will reveal the limitations in the original recording. But don't let that put you off, this is a great release, finally getting the justice it deserves.

Incredibile come abbiano riportato i loro suoni sul palco da pezzi impossibili da concepire. La chitarra di brian , quella originale non suonera in futuro sempre quella dal vivo, ma alcune perfette riproduzioni esplosiva. Anche il timido deacon meno nascosto che in futuro.

Un gran trozo de su arte. This LP re-issue has much better bass and more inner detail than the original Reprise. Its like they took a blanket off the recording. Buy it for "PolyGap" if you want to hear the future of Hendrix songwriting. Get it while you can I got my LP today 7 days before release. It was delayed initially but it is here now. Noise floor is way off the map compared to the original Reprise pressing. Even if you have that you got to have this.
Numbered copies will sell out. Get an early pressing while you still can. In many ways, Jimi's last year on Earth is his most musically intriguing and innovative.
The close-to-finished cuts of songs meant for his never-released next album heard on both The Cry of Love and this one evince a newfound mastery in Jimi's mixture of genres; the result, at its best, is a kind of sublime funk-soul-psychedelic-blues stew. Its edges are buttery-smooth, compared to the rough-and-tumble recordings, and thanks to the comfort and control that his then-under construction Electric Lady studio afforded him.
Jimi's lyrics, brash and full of youthful yearnings on the Experience records, are here more alert, more mature, more political. They're also often incredibly contemplative, resigned, distressed; even sad.
This is a man cracking and all but crumbling under tremendous pressure: pressure caused by nasty legal battles c. Ed Chalpin , an incredibly and needlessly exhausting and endless tour schedule, and especially the great fear and stress caused by the constantly hovering presence of his money-stealing, mob-connected, fascist-psychotic control-freak ex-MI5 manager Michael Jeffery -- who once staged Hendrix's kidnapping, before rushing in to "rescue," in order to send a message vis a vis who "really" had his back.
This is the man whose machinations caused Jimi's murder by red-wine-waterboarding as confessed a year later to Tappy Wright, and as was obvious to the horrified doctors who had to empty what seemed like several bottles's worth of wine out of Hendrix's stomach upon his death; naturally, Jimi had an abnormally low blood-alcohol level at the time.
Preternaturally sensitive to his destiny and the forces controlling it, Jimi's songs were never more death-haunted than in this final year.
This may be the single most naked and moving moment in Jimi's discography; it's why I wish to focus on Rainbow Bridge over Cry indeed, the whole song, obviously unfinished, is touchingly vulnerable and stripped of artifice: "Is the microphone on? Utilizing the UniVibe pedal extensively, as well as a fiercer and more jagged-sounding FuzzFace distortion than the one heard in his earlier years, Jimi's guitar tone in performances like Woodstock, Fillmore East, Berkeley from which we have here a beyond-words cosmic rendition of "Hear My Train a Comin'" , and on a song like "Hey Baby," reaches a new level of raw emotion in sound.
The UniVibe gives his Curtis Mayfield-meets-Bach arpeggiated rhythm syncopations a shaky, uneven acid-warbling that unsettles, as in the intro to "Hey Baby"; it further reinforces that sad feeling, that sense of mortality and the afterlife and leaving Earth for good, that so imbues the recorded tracks of Cry and Rainbow Bridge with their uncanny power.
There is still a definitive book to be written about Jimi's death and what led to it, especially in light of Tappy Wright's revelation, but for now we have the music, intimate and mysterious and multi-dimensional as ever.
