Dream Theater's Album Covers

Dream Theater's album covers are renowned for being usually very interesting. Larry Freemantle designed the covers of the second and the third Dream Theater albums, Images and Words (1992) and Awake (1994). In both cases, the band instructed Freemantle to include several lyrical references in the cover, such as a clock showing six o'clock, a mirror and a spider in the middle of a web for the tracks "6:00", "The Mirror" and "Caught in a Web" respectively of the Awake album.
