Top Album Covers of 2023

Published: January 31, 2024

As we enjoy the countless year-end best-of festivities, let’s not forget the wonderful album artwork that 2023 has brought us. Below is a list of 100 of the best covers I saw all year, not ranked by quality but following a vague progression of color and shape. As always, this is by no means an exhaustive list, as many iconic artworks were left on the cutting room floor, but I think it all adds up to my favorite collage yet! Have fun, and here’s to another year of great album covers! — neekafat
