I am a fan of all three.
Who can forget the music from 2001 a space odyssey? The images, technology, but the music made everything so real and visceral.
The Art Vinyl company created the award 2004 and lets the public vote for their favorite album art.
This past years award went to Michael Kagan for his 2010 work titled Pilot 2 that was used on the cover of White Lies’ Big TV album.
Other space related album art has won in the past. In 2010, the Klaxons’ album Surfing the Void won for its cat in an astronaut suit album cover. I’m not sure if it really qualifies as space related, but hey, its a cat in a space suit.
It could have been Catanauts and Dogonauts, just as long as everyone gets along. Check out the Dogonauts kickstarter page here.

Ok … Now I’ll have to watch it again !!! The 2001 cover does it every time I see it – I have my original LP as well, plus on the iPod so I can have it in the car when you need that mood of travelling between Saturn and Jupiter. Its a good soundtrack for observing too. Damn …. Now it’s going to be in my head all day (pleasantly).
