I absolutely love John's album covers - specially on his later works.
I'm a designer myself and am a fan of album art. When I met John we spoke about his covers - it was a good conversation
Anyway I think the proposed covers for Translucence and Drift music were really great, likewise with Metatronic - something about that simple photograph I love - and of course the magnificent Cathedral Oceans.
Of course the final Translucence/Drift Music artwork is very interesting and I really like the Crash & Burn artwork.
I think my favourite of John's album covers was actually the first version of the cover for Pleasures of Electricity. I really thought that image was cool - so I was quite surprised when the final version came out with the René Magritte inspired cover instead - still really great - but I always wanted to know why it was changed!
Actually I think I asked John this - and I can't remember what he said - maybe copyright issues.
Anyway I just wanted to share my love for John's album artwork!
