I love the topic and respect your opinion (honest!) but I really can't see how you can shove Kill Uncle and IANADOAC in there over Years of Refusal and Your Arsenal which both have fantastic album covers (in the case of YOR, absolutely hilarious)!

Something like this:

1) Ringleader
2) Years Of Refusal
3) You Are The Quarry
4) Your Arsenal
5) TIE World Peace or Viva Hate

I like the simplicity of the Kill Uncle cover and the colors of Dog. I agree Years of Refusal has a cool cover though.

Your Arsenal on the other hand, meh.

Viva Hate - classic image, divorced from The Smiths and showing it, face frontal on the cover.
Your Arsenal / Beethoven was Deaf - Great, cheeky covers from Linder showing Moz in his live element.
Southpaw Grammar - though it’s confusing why Moz temporarily went back to the Smiths cover stars idea, I like this cover a lot, both the colours and image.
This is Morrissey - not the greatest album, but I like the 70s bargain bin vintage style compilation look, with the songs on the cover

GAME OF DEATH.
best hair is refusal.
classiest is ringleader.
most controversial is high school.
best dog not on a chain is world peace.
most stylish which isn't an album is 25 live.
best eyebrows is not a dog on a chain.

I've always liked the Kill Uncle cover.

I don't really get what he's meant to be doing on it however. Why are his arms outstretched? Is he meant to be talking to someone? Does he just fancy walking around like that?

1. Kill Uncle
2. You Are The Quarry
3. Maladjusted (2009)
4. Ringleader of the Tormentors
5. Greatest Hits or Viva Hate if we're not counting compilations

Probably the only time Kill Uncle will ever be number 1 on any list

1) Arsenal
2) Southpaw
3) Hate
4) Refusal
5) Tormentors

Anyone who puts the Maladjusted cover in their top 5 is beyond pedagogical reach....

I straighten up, and my position is one of hope.
1. Kill Uncle - wistful Englishness

2. SG reissue - pure rockabilly, perfect hair and sideburns

3. ROTT - class and tongue-in-cheek all rolled into one

4. Vauxhall - somberness galore

5. LIHS reissue - stylish in a way I thought completely lost

Wish we could make a top 5 singles cover thread instead

Good call - what about:

1. Everyday Is Like Sunday
2. November Spawned A Monster
3. We Hate It When...
4. Roy's Keen
5. Piccadilly Palare
