This is for anyone who remembers vinyl and large album covers, compared to thumbnails, and it really is a good doc.

Unlike a lot of docs this does have an arc, although it is quite like a "behind the music" episode (if you remember VH1) or a common bio pic - the rise, success, and fall of .

What's interesting is Hipgnosis actually realized the end of an era and got out in 1983.

With that said the covers that created really are magnificent. Even when it didn't seem like they were taking it seriously or they were somehow "not quite on the level" and just living the rock star lifestyle - they actually treated albums covers as art and symbolic marketing, and it worked.

This is a great doc. Lots and lots of rock stars of the 70s and early 80s who were living life to excess weigh in on how important an album cover was at the time including Jimi Page, Robert Plant, Roger Waters, Paul McCartney, David Gilmour, Nick Mason, and Noel Gallagher.

The Dark Side of the Moon cover is definitely one of the more iconic images to come out of the classic rock era and Storm and Po were at the center of it.
