Top 20 Album Covers of 2018

Featured album cover: Harm’s Way – Posthuman.

I love album covers. Once in a while, an album cover makes me stop in my tracks. I feel amazed at first, sometimes shocked, and always determined to gaze longer at the photograph or artwork to decipher its meaning and absorb the scale, beauty, or strangeness of the album art.

The following album covers from this year are not the most beautiful. Rather, they are the most memorable, daring, and unique.
