Best Album Cover???

Rolling Stones rated this as one of the best album covers of all time. It is the cover for New Order’s Power, Corruption, &  Lies cd. I have to disagree with Rolling Stones on this one. The cover has neither reference to the name or artistic flow. In my opinion, the image looks better suited for a coffee table booklet then an album cover.

    its actually my favorite album cover as well. the colored bars on the upper right refer to a code that Peter Saville (the designer) created to go with the album. There is a key to the code on the back of the album, and it all conceptually relates to the content and the aesthetic of the album. It may look ordinary at first, but I think this is actually on of the most brilliant album covers ever designed. And Peter Saville is without a doubt, a genius.
