Simple Minds Sparkle in the Rain Covers




One of my all-time favorite covers.

I love the simplicity and the taste that went into designing the cover, and the whole album package. The design alone is worth a thousand posts, and I really can't do it justice. Two golden bands, a shield, the flourishes on the side, and the text--what more could you need?

If the Eighties were a period of throwaway junk, count this album as being anything but a throwaway.
