No particular order.

Perfection.

More perfection.

Enough said.

Nowhere on cover or sleeve does it say who the band is.   Brilliant.

Some great choices there Colin, I’m going to have a rethink.

Some strange choices, not what I was expecting. I thought there would be a few Yes album covers at least.

I was going to chose “Fragile”, then I thought “Tales of Topographic Oceans” is slightly better. Then I talked myself out of both. This is not as easy as I first thought :doh:.

I would go for "Tales of Topographic Oceans” if I owned it. I have Fragile but don't rate it that highly. Still thinking of my 5.

Very difficult to separate it based on just the cover, rather than the content. Probably change my mind later, but six of the best IMO from my unruly pile

I’ve amended my list. Jethro Tull has dropped out, Rolling Stones is in. One album framed, four or five more to go.

I now have the (possibly) finished “wall of sound”. I’m toying with the idea of adding one more, but it would look asymmetrical.

Influenced by some previous choices, Sgt. Pepper out, Abbey Road in. Hot Rats out (for the moment), King Crimson In. No.7. (Because I cannot count) in John Martyn’s Solid Air.

The final current “Wall of Sound”, or should that be “Art of Noise”:whistle:.
