From awesome to awful, we've seen all manner of album cover designs over the years. Get it right, and the design can become a bonafide classic – which is exactly the case with this example that's currently lighting up the internet.

The cover for Boston's self-titled 1976 album has re-emerged on Reddit, and users are loving the clever optical illusion it centres around. Think those are UFOs in the sky? Look a little closer, and you'll see that they're also guitars. (For more inspiration, check out the best print ads of all time.)
