Sgt. Pepper and Abbey Road are my two favorite covers.

I love Sgt. Pepper's cover because there is SO much going on, and the colors are wonderful. It's a really intriguing cover.

I love Abbey Road's cover because it's just that classic shot of them. It's wonderful. That's really all I can say about it.

Oh, I also love Magical Mystery Tour's cover - the costumes are great.

My favourite cover is Sgt Pepper's, because it's really well done. I mean, the work of the designers is great! And it was interesting to me to find celebrities on the cover when I first saw it. It's a pity there is no Hitler on the cover. I think John's idea was great!
The Abbey Road cover is a legent now (espesially for those "Paul is Dead" Hoax lovers!) I am not one of them but I think the pic on the cover is really stylish!
And, of course, I should mention the famous cover of The White Album. All genius what is simple. :)

My favorite one is 'Yellow Submarine'. It's not too simple or complicated. Also, I like its colors.

A lot of great stuff to choose from, but if pressed, I think I would single out "Help" and the "Hey Jude" compilation as having great cover art that still feels fresh, and not overexposed.

Among the more obvious contenders, I think too would go for Revolver.

I dunno. I thought it would look even more greater with him! It would be funny to see Marylin Monro, Marlon Brando and Hitler on one picture!

Well, Sgt. Pepper is just too interesting to not go at the top of the heap. And Abbey Road has a great, iconic photograph. Anyone who doesn't like those covers is just being contrary.

As far as underrated covers go, I'd agree with Amboisvert about "Hey Jude," and I've always loved the photo on the cover of Beatles For Sale. Slapped that one up as my avatar because I liked it so much.

Every album cover is a work of art in itself! It's so hard to choose a favourite. I love Meet the Beatles, Rubber Soul, Revolver, Abbey Road..the butcher cover is quite surreal. Ah, I dunno!

I like Abbey Road, and especially Revolver, maybe cuz its drawn, rather than a picture.

Right now... Rubber Soul. I love Paul's little anecdote on the Anthol. dvds where he talks about how the album cover came to be...

Revolver is pretty gear too!

Actually I quite like most of the covers, but Sgt Pepper is among my favorites, because it's really a work of art and they put a lot of thought into it. I love the bright colors in it, it sort of brings out the whole Summer of Love idea for me. I've always also liked Beatles For Sale and RubberSoul because of the cover photos, which I like. The idea with the tilted picture on Rubber Soul is also pretty cool. Another favorite of mine is With The Beatles, because of its simple, classic black & white look. I love the shadows on their faces. It's a really artistic picture and I love it. As for Abbey Road, it's a classic that has been copied by others. Taking one's picture on that zebra crossing is a must for most every Beatles fan, who visits Abbey Road. Some day I'm gonna take my picture there...
