Boston – Don’t Look Back (1978/Epic Records)

Anyone that doesn’t own this second studio album from Boston needs to put down their prune juice and take a course in Rock History.

IRON MAIDEN – Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son (1988)

Yes, there are a few UFO’s hovering around (a half of an) Eddie, on this album cover. This was another cover art masterpiece from the great Derek Riggs. Whoa!

ASIA – Aqua (1992)

The above UFO could also be considered a USO (Unidentified Submerged Object), if the imagery on this album cover is under water. Confused? So am I. By the way, this ASIA CD is out-of-print and costs just under $40 (U.S.) on Amazon.com. Whoa.

RUSH – Clockwork Angels Tour (2013)

I cannot identify that large and strange-looking aircraft above that concert stage while RUSH is performing; therefore it is a creepy UFO. ‘Nuff said.
