This title lets you take an extraordinary journey through the coolest hard rock album covers from 1965-90: vinyl's "golden age." Martin Popoff - the world's most renowned heavy metal journalist - joins with celebrated cover artist Ioannis to offer always insightful, sometimes humorous critiques of 216 covers. Popoff looks at the good, the bad and the ugly from all angles, critiquing the top cover art in the genre and offering trivia and behind-the-scenes stories from the artists themselves about the covers and the music that inspired them. The showcased musicians include the era's biggest stars, from Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, the Rolling Stones and Cream to Kiss, Metallica, Nirvana and Alice in Chains.
