Muse Album Wins

This is the sleeve for Muse album The Resistance, which won the Best Art Vinyl prize 2009 in an online poll. Second came the Manic Street Preachers' Journal For Plague Lovers, which prompted a stupid rumpus from the big supermarkets last May. Sainsburys, Tesco, Asda and Morrison all demanded the publishers supply the album in a sleeve to hide its "inappropriate" artwork (CLICK). So it's good to see that excellent painting by Jenny Saville gaining second place. Click the title link to view the top 10 album covers. They will also appear in an exhibition at the Art Vinyl Gallery in Selfridges, London.
