    Difficult poll...I chose ChotDW, but I had a hard time not to vote for AWaaW, because of my sentiment for this album and also BtBS has a very nice cover..

    I don't like Sinner's Serenade's cover (too simple for me)
    Vilda Mannu's cover has some elements that I like but I don't like the mixtures of colors between the Purple and Sandy Brown.
    The others covers are more beautiful to me :
    I love the face of the woman on the CB's cover and the symbols on the right.
    I love the 2 birds on the cover of BtBS and the mixture of colors are very beautiful, but the only element on this cover that I don't like very much is the sun, it looks like a fruit.

    The cover of A Virgin and a Whore is my favorite cover of all time, I love so much the character on it and the colors ...
    And I think this cover reflect all the Atmosphere of the musics on that album ...

    (Sorry for my english ^^'')

    Definitely "Before the Bleeding Sun". It has an epic sense, it lacks the genre's cliches and the colours are beautiful.

    The last one is very strong, the last two albums look professionnal.

    Hard decision between AVAAW, CB and CotDW. But I chose the latter. :3

    [Warning: Long Post]

    Sinner's Serenade
    I don't understand the correlation bewteen the content of the image and the music (lyrics), and tbh I wouldn't pass it as a decent photograph or artwork (terrible choice in colours);
    The typography really disappoints me - I'll leave it at that.

    Vilda Mánnu
    The typography disappoints again;
    I can see how one obvious layer (the moon) correlates to the title (duh);
    btw, anyone notice the typo inside the album booklet?

    Chaotic Beauty
    Better choice for the type and logo, I can easily read them now;
    I applaud for the introduction of the trademark 'E';
    the torso of the woman... I wouldn't use 'chaotic' to describe her, but it certainly is an 'out-of-the-ordinary' kind of beauty.

    A Virgin and a Whore
    I could pull out a number of 'symbols' I notice, but of course it differs from person to person.
    However, the two faces caught my attention (innocent and seductive) - this is getting long, so I won't comment further.

    Before the Bleeding Sun
    OMG, I repeat OMG! It easily snatches my vote.
    I agree the sun looks kinda like a fruit, I remeber the first time I saw this cover I thought "heh peach".
    It would impress me if it were a photograph, digital and non-digital illustration all-in-one (though I wouldn't be surprised if it were).
    It's simple, yet dramatic. I love it!
    It's a shame I still can't find the words to comment further.

    Children of the Dark Waters
    I'm sad to say I'm not impressed, I've created a number of photo-manips with layers of people that form a trail; it wasn't difficult at all, so I guess that took the magic of this piece from me.
    Nevertheless, this image contains (so far?) the best composition in terms of subject. The Rule of Thirds never fails :)

    My two cents.

    To be honest, for me it doesn't make a difference so much, actually I realized it only a while ago (just when I looked at the cover very carefully) that one of the face stands for a virgin and the other one for whore :) maybe it's because that seductive face really looks innocent for me too ;)
