The cover art of Muse album 'The Resistance' has been named the best record artwork, beating Manic Street Preachers and Green Day's cover arts.
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."
