A good example is U2, you can see the way they have grown as a band by looking at their album covers. At first they are really serious and earnest, before going all crazy and dark and funny with Achtung Baby, Zooropa and Pop, and now they've gone to a sort of matured, weathered band, you can see it in the artwork. As for saying it is about the music, that is fine, but a great album cover is a great album cover, it's art.
