Melt

Triggered by the previous post, here we have one of many great covers designed for Peter Gabriel's brilliant albums. This is the one gracing his third solo album, which he simply dubbed "Peter Gabriel", like the first two. To avoid confusion, many people have started to refer to this one as "Melt" based on the cover art. Good to remember that this one pre-dates photoshop by over a decade... Peter Gabriel and photographer Storm Thorgerson simply smudged a wet photograph to fascinating effect.
