The coolest album covers of 2018 were a varied group, with rock, hip-hop, and movie soundtracks all outdoing themselves.

Album covers are an under-appreciated aspect of music. Many artists are content to slap their face and the title on the album and call it a day. That’s understandable, as making the album surely takes a huge amount of creative energy.

But sometimes, bands or artists view the album cover as an extension of the music and go the extra mile. That’s when we get great cover art like these 15 albums.

Check out the best album covers of this year.
