Creative Review - Art Vinyl's sleeves of the year

It's really important in my opinion that record/album sleeve art never dies! Even though downloading and file
sharing is increasing all the time, artwork is usually and if done in the right way, an extension of the music, artist... 

and concept!

That saying, I'm not so impressed with this selection on the whole. Whatever happened to great design covers by
the likes of: Pink Floyd, New Order etc. Could it be something to do with record labels cutting production budgets?
Well that shouldn't really effect the creativity should it!

But then again I really need to see these in the flesh and not on a digital computer screen. I think Apple are trying
to cover this problem in the latest iTunes, by not just showing the cover, but as much visual and factual content as
possible related to that album. Still it's not the same as pulling out that old LP or 12" is it!
