The cover of Muse's hit album "The Resistance" has been named the best record artwork to hit shelves in Britain in 2009. The eye-catching sleeve was voted atop an online poll, with Manic Street Preachers' "Journal For Plague Lovers" coming second.
Third place went to Fever Ray's self-titled album and Massive Attack's "Splitting the Atom" was named the fourth best cover. Green Day rounded out the top five with the cover for "21st Century Breakdown" - and all of the winning sleeves will feature in an exhibition at the Art Vinyl gallery in London.
The company's director Andrew Heeps says, "(The award is) a great way to celebrate the unsung heroes behind the art and design of some of our favourite bands and artists."
