    Living Things was probably my favorite based upon first reactions to seeing the covers, but I would probably go with Hybrid Theory.

    I voted for A Thousand Suns because it's an interesting abstraction that represents the entire album astonishingly well.

    Hands down Hybrid Theory

    There were some awesome ideas for Minutes to Midnight.

    A Thousand Suns definitely takes the cake for best album artwork, although I wish the band would have chosen this piece for the front cover:

    *edit*

    ...or I guess they did? hot dayumn!

    Anyone know if that is the official packaging for the deluxe vinyl/cd/dvd set?

    The best art in general had ATS but if you just compare the covers then I would say HT>THP=LT>Metera>MTM>ATS

    I take The Hunting Party for the album, and for live album, I take Live in Texas and Road to Revolution

    ATS has the best cover and the best artwork by FAR. The single covers and the album booklet is their best artwork yet.

    Definitely Hybrid Theory. The Hunting Party one is pretty good too.

    I hate the one for Minutes to Midnight. I don't like when the band members are in the cover to be honest.

    Strange because I actually like it when the band appears on the cover, well at least when Linkin Park shows up in pictures.

    I love it. The extended line left to "PARK" bugs me though. It just looks off. :lol: Maybe if they put the "PARK" in the middle, not to the right.

    THP is my favorite, amazing cover, havent seen the rest of the artwork yet.
    ATS artwork is amazing as a whole.
    LT cover is very cool, the booklet is a bit shitty.
    MTM is cool and kind of fits the music, but i liked some of those alternative covers much more than the one they choose.
    Meteora is meh
    HT is great, the hybrid soldier is badass

    1. The Hunting Party
    2. A Thousand Suns
    3. Hybrid Theory
    4. Living Things
    5. Minutes To Midnight
    6. Meteora

    I would go:
    1. The Hunting Party
    2. A Thousand Suns
    3. Minutes to Midnight
    4. Hybrid Theory
    5. Meteora
    6. Living Things

    May be subconsciously influenced by how much I like the albums. Honestly though I like all the covers. Linkin Park is good at designing that type of thing.

    I love Living Things! Splody man! All of them are pretty cool, but ATS is sorta useless to me. I really like Living Things because of the energy in it. There is some movement from the layers breaking off, and if you have a high-resolution of the cover, you can see the small details and fine lines/shapes and omg, it's so amazing. Yes it is a 3d model, but I can tell it's a 3d model of Chester. I think it's a much better 3d model than The Hunting Party because THP has barely any movement or feeling. I just don't feel anything by looking at it, there isn't enough 'pull' on the arrow, it seems weak.
    I'm always gonna go with Splody man, and I'm going to call the Living Things' cover Splody Man forever
