MUSIC: BGG's Top 5 Cover Art Designs

Growing up, I always admired the artwork of album and CD covers. However, thanks to the digital age, I either don't see the cover artwork or simply don't pay attention anymore. That was until last week, when I saw the eye-catching cover design for Kanye West's upcoming release, "Cruel Summer."

In fact, it got me thinking about some of my fave covers from back in the day. From iconic to colorful, there have been many visually captivating covers throughout the years.

Dust off your CD tower and take a walk down memory lane!

 Janet Jackson's "Control," 1986

Kelis' "Kaleidoscope," 1999

Kanye West's "The College Dropout," 2004

Lauryn Hill's "The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill," 1998

Michael Jackson's "Dangerous," 1991

What are some of your fave cover art designs?
