Album Covers: Siren
The cover to the Roxy Music album Siren is, in my opinion, just about as close to perfection as an album cover can come.
The colors and tone are reminiscent of a Maxfield Parish piece, but the subject matter is...well, more like something I would paint.
The model is supermodel Jerry Hall, who was in a relationship with Roxy Music member Brian Ferry at the time of the albums release, and later went on to be the future wife of Mick Jagger. All that aside, I just really love this piece. It is one of the albums I have bought strictly for the cover, and it was well worth it.
