Tin drum

One of the most intriguing album covers - and one of my all-time favourite albums. Japan's final album Tin drum is one of the few records where I actually kept the album after buying the CD - for decoration purpose only... I am displaying the original album on top of my CD cases. The record itself is very much inspired by Asia in general and China in particular, with a style that is a little less flamboyant than their previous works. This is reflected in the cover art by Fin Costello, which is stunningly simple yet effective.
