Not sure if this has been done before... Anyways, what is your least favourite album cover? Personally, I chose Dance of Death for the extra people on the cover. To me, they just don't seem to fit.

X Factor. I always thought that was too ugly. Plus, for good or ill, Eddie needs to be drawn/painted for an album cover. Not a silly model.

DOD. the puppets are ugly as all hell.

The original though is pretty nice, so if ignoring the puppets it's only my thirs least favorite.
First being Virtual and then X factor.


Dance of Death, but that is mostly because it looks like it was made in like 5mins. I think a re-working of it would make it cool.


I don't particularaly detest any of the artwork (it's still better than anything I could ever make), but I voted VXI just because I forgot what it looks like.

And who voted for Powerslave? :O
