One of the older albums in this series, UK prog rock band Gentle Giant's 1972 Octopus. Intriguingly, it was released in two really different covers, and both are beautiful, as shown in the animation above. The free-reigning octopus in red tones, designed by grandmaster Roger Dean, was the cover for most of the world, whilst the USA for some reason opted for a different cover, the canned blueish octopus designed by Kerry Kneitel and Charles White.
