My favourite Queen album cover is the Made in Heaven one because it puts a fitting end to the greatest band. And I also like the uniqueness? of the Miracle cover.

Yea News Of The World is good. ANATO is nice aswell. ADATR isn't as nice as ANATO's. AKOM is good aswell.

A tie between ANATO...for it's definitive artwork that would become Queen's crest and symbol...

..and Made In Heaven...for it's meaningful, and sublime beauty as a postscript to what was..and still it. Majestic and subtle at the same time, says it all about who Queen are, not only to us the fans, but to the band members...to one another and how they felt about one another..and Freddie.

Queen II. Just an iconic piece of imagery.

No, the cover of Queen (Queen I, if you will) isnt painted. Read the extensive Queen bio on this site (it's excellent) and I believe it'll explain it for you.




"Queen were involved in every aspect of the album. The back cover features a collage of photos. The band invited their friends around to Freddie's flat to pick out the best photo's from the one they had. After picking out the best ones, Freddie and Brian spent weeks gluing them all together.

A photographer friend of theirs, Doug Puddifoot who had taken many on their early shots helped them with the collage as well as the album cover. The cover consisted of a picture of Freddie on stage, backed with two spotlights. The purple effect was given by covering the camera lens with some plastic. "

I like all the Queen covers cos they show the varying fashions and ideals of Queens career.
My fav's tho are Innuendo, The Miracle and News Of The World!

Queen II is the most iconic...That's my favourite along with A Night At The Opera & A Day At The Races. Innuendo is good too...actually so is GH3.

I think I would have to say News Of The World.

Something really sad is that I never realized it was a picture of Freddie, Brian, Roger, and John with that robot dude. A while ago my brother pointed it out on my mum's old LP cover, and I was like, "You're right it does look like them!!!" So, I felt pretty stupid after he showed me. But, I think that also helps make the cover really cool.

I agree with you!.. same goes to Live Killers (with all that lights and the guys on stage)..

But for studio album covers, I would say that it's a tie between News Of The World and The Miracle...
