No Line on the Horizon
Zooropa

I like abstract covers that capture the mood of the album
Unforgettable Fire is a good one too.

Hands down War and Achtung Baby. The coverart seems inseparable from the lyrical and musical content unlike their later albums. I seriously have a bone to pick with the graphic artists that opted to have a blase picture of the band on a bench as last album's cover. To me, it seemed to say that the biggest rock super group was 'sitting this one out' effectively on their coattails. There wasn't anything compelling about the cover. Sadly, the cover did turn out to be indicative of the mood of a lot of the songs on the record.

Don't get me wrong, Hotdaab isn't a horrible album. But compared to their previous works, this one rings of ProTools and plunky piano more than deep founded lyricism. When I picked up the album for its inaugural listen, it sounded really great. Of course, this was prediscovery of the magnum opuses that was Achtung Baby - Pop.

Please, U2. Produce a killer record for your loyal fan base.
I want Hiroshi Sugimoto's photograph to be linked to the second coming of U2, the latest reincarnation of Achtung Baby swagger and style.

And we wait,
Macphisto

Boy and War!!!! (OK-I love Peter Rowan!)  Really- I love how it showed a young boy on their first album as a young band and then the slightly older boy with the helmut on as if ready to go to war at his young age. Peter has a very powerful face-it said so much in such a simple and beautiful way.
