CDs look like they're dying out, but CDs over iPods any day for the lyrics and cover art:

Sonic Youth's Goo: Best band name, best album name, best cover. The cover is a Raymond Pettibon illustration based on a paparazzi photo of Maureen Hindley and David Smith, witnesses in the case of serial killers Ian Brady and Myra Hindley, driving to the trial in 1966.




Thom Yorke's The Eraser: Simplicity with complexity. London Views by Stanley Donwood is a medievalised vision of apocalypse in England’s capital city.
