Now, who else finds The Miracle cover disturbing? Not me, thats for sure.

So what do you think is the most disturbing album/single cover queen have (This includes live albums, and bootleg stuff)

In my opinion its the "Queen Rocks" Album cover. Thats pretty F*ed up in my opinion...



Soon as I saw this topic, I went on to say, ''The Miracle'', then ''surprise'', saw it on that link.

I just find that cover very bizarre and NOT in a good way, almost scary. I am sure the band did not mean it to come off that way, and wanted a collage/fusion of all of their faces...but it did not come off looking like it has that intention.

It is creepy to say the least and I never liked it.

I fail to see why the hell this cover would be considered "creepy".

If you want to see an album cover that really shouldn't have been released, check out the album "Virgin Killer" by The Scorpions.

I'm not gonna post a link because that could bring me in trouble but you should find it when typing "scorpions virgin" in Google.

Ever feel like you are being watched?

That the walls have eyes?

That people have eyes in the back of theur heads?

Or...that you are experiencing a VERY bad trip/drunken night...of ultra hallucenagenic proportions?

It's THAT kind of creepy.

I just found this link, http://www.zonicweb.net/badalbmcvrs/badalbumcoverstopten/toptenbadalbumcovers1.htm, and some of these covers are hilarious. That Scorpions one has to be the worst of all itme.

The Miracle cover is one of the weirder ones in the world.
The whole faces-fusing-together thing is IMHO spiffy.
And I parodied it for my website (just click to www.wariocomix.com).
EDIT: Just went to the link. Nice to see VH's Balance on the near-misses.

The Miracle is disturbing? You guys need to go see some horror movies or something. I think the more disturbing ones are sheer heart attack with the band lying around after a possible orgy or Greatest Hits III with Freddies ghost (in essence) looking down at the other band members. So yea... they obviously dont pay much attention to queen. Those all looked like records they picked up at the quarter bin of the thrift store... minus The Miracle of course... dont know how that god mixed in. So yea...

The 'Sheer Heart Attack' cover is far more disturbing.
At least from the point of a straight male is not a very good sight to see 4 barechested guys laying together and covered in oil.

Yeah, I have to agree that the "Miracle" album cover is kind of disturbing. It looks like some seriously mutated siamese twins. I think that it is really ugle. I can't imagince why anyone would like it.

No question for me! None at all!

The News of the World album cover my older sister had used to scare the living shit out of me. I had nightmares about that fucking thing! I could see The Miracle disturbing some, but not me. Mostly because I am a web/video editor and quite an expert with Photoshop. For 1989 The Miracle is the shit. For today, it looks cheaper than would be expected.

The Miracle is meant to be 'as one'... as the credits were Queen for every song, and they wanted everyone to know, they are a band, and have similar thoughts and togetherness.

I'm actually surprised Queen were on there (being a big band, even in the USA), as the other artists don't even have hits, or only a couple!

There's nothing wrong with the Miracle cover...that I feel is really original and cool...but the Kind of Magic cover, well that's a different ball-game altogether...kind of weird with the crazy cartoons of queen. I would agree that the Queen Rocks cover is strange too, especially the drawings inside it.
