Beautiful and Unsettling - Word's 20 Best (and Worst) record covers in history 
The December 2005 edition of Word magazine has an entirely subjective listing of the 20 Best and Worst record covers in history. Included in the best are FACT 10 Unknown Pleasures by Joy Division (designed by Peter Saville) and Black Grape's It's Great When You're Straight... Yeah! (designed by Central Station Design).

... and in the worst is Waiting For The Sirens' Call by New Order (designed by Peter Saville) [Word comments: "Shall I buy this?" "No". The original sleeve (featuring yachts) was binned after the Tsunami but that doesn't excuse this wretched will-this-do stopgap]
