Ps. nothing wrong with Europe's The Final Countdown... in fact there is an even worse cover with a band photo. Rolling Eyes

Dude, this topic is really courageous, I have to say.

Just imagine that some of the cover artwork out of our scene would have been mentioned in those collections of bad artwork...! Shocked

Not to be misunderstood: This funny artwork is exactly my cup of tea - I wouldn't actually mind if someone would put some of my work in those collections of bad taste.
At least that just means that I've achieved a kind of "superlative" which someone is keeping in mind...

These guys auditioned to play in TD's live band...

... unfortunately they failed, as they actually played an instrument.

The cover of Imaginarium by Ma Ja Le & Vir Unis is a Brycian hell.

If you want good space art, ask a space artist.

To me it looks like one of those "hellish" landscapes from the first Doom game. Not bad, but only because of that (pleasant) analogy.

It was 1983, a good EM year, Neuronium LP's stared trickling out of Spanish obscurity, TD released Hyperborea, KS Audentity & Vangelis' Antarctica was being smuggled out of Japan as it was illegal to sell it elsewhere...
Then this LP hits my mail box, I went by rave reviews from Lotus/AndyG and Eurock/Archie but never seen the cover. no Net, just snail mail.
Still in deep cover shock, I played the LP, and, wow, Sonic Perfume was an instant success paving the way for the New Age scene, and re-released several times on his other reissues.

Indeed...

What's that cover doing in the site... doesn't belong, I think.

However... Whoa!!! hehe...

Depends on Your frame of mind.

P.S. I'm an old sci-fi fan, I quite like it, I think...
Who did that cover, btw.?
