    Yeah it's the debut for sure although I don't like the lettering of the bandname.

    I tihnk the covers that best fit the material on the albums themselves are the first and Sabbth Bloody Sabbath (almost tied with Sabotage).

    Though I love the cover, I don't think the art for Technical Extacy (or the title, for that matter) is very congruent with the songs.

    My least favorite cover, but still favorite album, is Dehumanizer.

    All the best,
    PAULIE

    All of them, I guess

    The debut's sleeve is obviously classic as well as one of the most powerful covers of all time.

    Personally I'm really fond of the Heaven and Hell cover and I know it's also Ronnie's personal favourite.

    The upcoming Live at Hammersmith Odeon seems pretty impressive also. I don't normally rate using band photos as cover art too highly, but this one looks exceedingly classy.

    The album covers are all cool, but in different ways. Sabbath, Bloody Sabbath and Seventh Star have cover art that is very ornate and meaningful. Born Again is on acid and simple. Dehumanizer hints at the theme of the album -- how technology is dehumanizing us. Mob Rules is just a work of art. Paranoid, Master of Reality, and Volume 4 are evocative of the time period in which they were designed. Live Evil's artwork is actually appropriate for a massive Best Of album, given that it incorporates, and quite cooly might I add, parts of all of the songs on the album.

    So, all the album's art are cool, you just have to appreciate them separately for what they are.

    Sabotage! Bill's pants look awesome.
    In fact almost all of their covers are very good.
    Dehumanizer is worst. The Dio Years cover isn't very good either.

    The debut album is the best, with SBS a close second. And I love the band name lettering on the debut. To me, it's very old-style English and fits perfectly with the theme.

    Paranoid is probably the worst, only because the title and picture make no sense together. Of course, if the album were titled "War Pigs" as was originally intended, it would have been a little better...but not much.
