This review is from: 100 Best Album Covers (Paperback)
I have owned this book for several years and I finally decided to write a review on it now. Why did I wait so long? Well, this is not the kind of book that you'll likely pick up right away and read all the way through. In fact, I constantly find myself going back to this book whenever I'm bored. It's fun, even after many years, to flip to an album cover and read all of the interesting details on the concept, artist, design, and history. The book is laid out in such a fashion that each time you look at a represented cover, you discover new details and gain a new perspective.
As to the question of whether or not these are truly the best 100 album covers of all time, I really can't say. In fact, in that regard I think the title is misleading because it forces the reader into thinking this is some type of a ranking or countdown. In fact, it is nothing of the sort. This is simply a really cool collection of 100 great album covers and their history. And, in that respect, this book really delivers.
Buy it today. I promise you, it will never get dull.

"This is simply a really cool collection of 100 great album covers and their history." Exactly. This is refreshing after reading KaguyaHime's exceedingly gripe-y (almost pompous) review that so many people (27, apparently) seem to agree with. Fact is, this book is much more intriguing than the average album cover compendium. It upsets me when reviews such as KaguyaHime's turn people off to such a wonderful treasure! This book strikes me as lovingly prepared (not "hastily thrown together" in the least) - the little details always keep me coming back for more - and it's one of the few coffee table books I own that has a good "feel" to it (i.e. I can kick back with it on the couch, etc.)

However, KaguyaHime is right in one respect: 100 Best Album Covers must be reissued! It deserves a wider audience!

Cheers!

P.S. I hope there's a sequel someday! I'm eager to read about more of Storm & Aubrey's obscure favorites/curious as to what they think of the last ten years!
