The 25 Sexiest Album Covers of All Time
Because it's not enough to simply sound sexy.
by Alex Heigl and Peter Malamud Smith
Of all the things we regularly lament the demise of here at the Nerve office (manners, pennyfarthings, dueling as a method of conflict resolution), none causes us to gnash our teeth and wail skyward like the demise of album covers as an art form. Nowadays, with album art confined to a tiny square in your iTunes window, we've lost the ability to gaze longingly (or lustily) at the covers of our favorite albums. So we're taking a trip down erotic memory lane, and commemorating the twenty-five sexiest album covers of all time. Where others might call any cover with some bare flesh sexy, we tried to limit our choices to covers with a bit of wit and panache; we think you'll agree it's not what you've got, but how you use it. Enjoy with a touch of nostalgic tumescence.
