Then you should be embrasing the image and 'selling' side of rock and roll! I think it's such an intrinsic side to its appeal, from the first Elvis LP to the 4AD stuff. Album covers can be so great.

OK, I like the Clash cover best.
4AD covers are mostly crap.

I love album sleeves in all their vulgar, marketable glory.

I also love Coca-Cola, Nike trainers, Star Wars and the occasional Big Mac.

There's something to be said for a house style in record sleeves, whether its the company or the artist (the first 4 Peter Gabriel sleeves, the Pet Shop Boys use of white space and primary colours). It can be an important part of the marketing - who hasn't picked up a record because it had a cool cover to see who/what it was?
