I'm a big fan of cover art, as many of my readers know, but something I talk about less is good music art. Actually I don't think I've ever talked about it. Whether it's vinyl album art or a CD case, or just promo art to go with streaming or Internet radio, concept art can be a powerful tool for conveying an artists' ideas or mood. I find that ambient music and so-called New Age music is especially rich in awesome cover art, but progressive rock and other forms of music also have great examples.
So I thought I'd share some of my favorite pieces of album art, and while electronic music is well represented I tried to draw from as many diverse sources as I could. Let me know in the comments which are your favorites, or share your own.
