We the release of the Hammersmith DVD many of us are not happy with the art work.
Sub standard or predictable and even boring seem to be the ingredients that make up much of Queen's product art work. Of late.
So the question is what is the best, album, CD DVD video art work on a Queen release. The last really good ones I think were Innuendo and NOTW. Some since then have been good but haven't aged well.
NOTW obviously. Great concept - classic 70s rock album cover. At The Beeb (original UK sleeve) is great too.
A soft spot for Hot Space. Cool graphics.
I like The Works as it looks like a sunday night and they've all just had a bath and are getting ready for bed.
Queen, hands off their best cover.
Oh, I just realize that is a "freddie only" cover too... but well, it's nice anyway.
Violet Shadows... and an Harlequin man stand on a rock with his hands raised to a dark and cloudy sky...
what more could i ask for?
Man, they're all great.
'Many of us are not happy with the artwork ', are you a member of the Queen team Vocal Harmony?, you sound as if you feel you had the right to have some input. They release stuff, buy it if you fancy it, if you don't, don't buy! They owe you precisely NOTHING.
Stop bleating on about nowt!
The Miracle for me. At the time, it was striking, and Quantel Paintbox had just come to light. Fantastic cover.
They still use that program at QP...only the free trial version. didn't you noticed??
The Rainbow '74 was okay; if you copy the artwork from the Original tour program/flyer.
I like a lot of the Queen sleeves....Queen II, NOTW, Innuendo, MIH...even AKOM and The Miracle. Rainbow '74 artwork is lovely imo (even IF it's only Freddie). Back to the regal purple/gold and lovely picture. I'd say Innuendo is the best of the lot.
The cover of TCR had the band intentionally ' small ' as per the song title. Doesn't hide the fact that the album cover pretty much sucked. I initially thought it was a negative micro image of Paul Rodgers' hair plugs, but that was before I noticed the band.
