For those that have the Queen albums on vinyl: presented in the twelve-inch format, not in the disappointing five-inch CD format, which Queen album cover is your personal favourite?
(For those who are too young to remember, the vinyl album covers were a way for groups/solo artists/bands to show some impressive artwork for their efforts on a piece of twelve-inch vinyl.)
Queen released some striking covers in their career, and the solo efforts had some as well.
So...what is yours?

For photo composition, mine is The Works. Even the individual photos on the back cover are striking! (George Murrell was one of my favourite photographers next to Ansel Adams.)
For sheer beauty: Made In Heaven...always!

I agree about The Works. Looks damn good. The artwork covers are excellent too though. News of the World is certainly one of a kind and Innuendo is superb.

I'd say 'The Works' for live-action and 'News of the World' for artsy. Queen II is great, but tired and often printed poorly, showing the edge around their heads.

I love the simplicity of ANATO and ADATR. And Sheer Heart Attack, for other reasons.

ANATO and ADATR. Plus Innuendo. Like when all the single covers have similar artwork as the album so they can be recognised. I love all that crap.

If you want to see something interesting--compare the Boh Rhap single photo with the cover of The Works. Now you see how they were trying to appease their old fans!

A cool album cover is Jazz. Very aesthetically pleasing.

RMF, you're RIGHT! :-)
I loved the early, posed photos (especially the black and white shots). They were so...well, classy! Freddie ALWAYS looked like he was posing, even if someone caught him off-guard. Even in motion he was posing! Breathing, he was posing!
And especially for the solo albums. Yowsa!!

"Innuendo" is my second choice. Then "The Miracle" followed by "A Kind Of Magic".
