    Revolver is pure win.
    If it didn't exist then The White Album.

    I like Magical Mystery Tour. Then maybe Revolver, With the Beatles, or Sgt. Pepper's.

    you say that like it's a bad thing.

    I LOVE the simplicity. Beats the hell out of a bland band shot. I voted for White as well, but Abbey would probably be my second favorite.

    I gotta go with Abbey Road. It's a classic. Quite possibly the most recognizable album cover of all time. I also love the simplicity of the White Album and the artwork of Revolver.

    Is this just cover art or over all packaging?

    It doesn't really matter. I choose The White Album.

    I love Abbey Road, and it's definitely the most recognizable ^^, but Revolver is plain amazing. You really do appreciate when you spend hours building the puzzle; putting together their hair was extremely tedious, as it all looked very alike. It was quite satisfying once it was finished though :)

    its either the white album or abbey road that were the most unique

    the album with no cover or title just a name, the white album

    the album with no name or title just a cover, abbey road

    I liked A Hard Days Night because of the clever idea of putting the band in photo's on the cover - It's great!

    I love how you put in a contentless album cover but not A Hard Day's Night.

    Sgt. Pepper's is a classic, and I voted for that narrowly over Abbey Road and Rubber Soul. White Album's cover is awesome, but I can't call it art (others can, I know...it's all subjective).

    I'm glad you didn't include the banned "Yesterday and Today" cover...although that could count for the "other" votes.

    Ooh...ooh! The person above mentioned Hard Day's Night, which I'd forgotten. I'd change my vote if that were listed. "Hard Day's Night" is my favorite Beatles album cover.

    Pretty much all of them are (especially the later albums) are legendary. I'm going to Sgt. Pepper on this one. It's brilliance.

    This is a great idea for a topic. I think the Beatles album covers are as classic as the music itself.

    While they are great I had to go with the White Album. In a time where all album covers were crazy and colorful it took some guts to put out a album that had a completely blank white cover. They made a statement by making no statement at all and that is pretty genious.

    I love Abbey Road. It's so simple and iconic, yet with some hidden depth. The whole "Paul Is Dead" conspiracy found all sorts of supposed hidden meanings in that one simple photo. I think Abbey Road and With the Beatles are the 2 most instantly recognizable covers, and those most often copied/parodied.

    I prefer Sgt. Pepper's over anything else, it was very well done, and it still has its little secrets.

    Not even close. Sgt. Pepper has the greatest cover EVER.

    Each of the Beatles contributed a list of persons they wanted represented in the "crowd." Except Ringo...he didn't feel like it. George listed only Indian gurus.

    Love the mix of personalities...Marilyn Monroe (twice), Shirley Temple, Bob Dylan, Karl Marx, Oscar Wilde, Edgar Allen Poe, Johnny Weismuller, Marlon Brando, T.E. Lawrence, Tony Curtis, W.C. Fields, Laurel & Hardy, Fred Astaire...life-size cutouts were made of each and erected to form the crowd.

    No, I mean it's definalty more reconisable than Abbey Road (and Sgt. Pepper). Stupid Rock Band forums don't let me make quotes in quotes. Am I not alowed to mention other bands that are relevant to the topic?

    did you even read what he was replying to?
    And he's right, DarkSide is more recognizable than Abbey Road.

    There's something about it that is fun to me. Almost as if The Beatles are up to something bad when it was taken. They just have that look.
