It started as a simple office debate - what is the greatest album cover ever? Time and time again MusicRadar has brought you lists of some of the worst album covers in existence, from awful metal monstrosities to Christmas catastrophes. But when it comes to deciding on a list of the best, Team MusicRadar can't seem to agree.

So, we thought we'd throw the question out to you. What do you think are the greatest album covers ever? Leave your nominations in the usual ways (see below) and we'll get together a shortlist from your suggestions. Then voting proper can begin, and we can work out the greatest album cover of all time. Check out the shortlist below and cast your vote!
