Alien OST.

Jerry Goldsmiths Classic soundtrack for Alien has been reissued on vinyl. Just look at this sleeve art. Can you remember why we ever sacrificed the art form that is record vinyl sleeves for the sake of a cd cover? It is just impossible to imagine a cd cover no matter how well designed or packaged delivering that frisson of energy a well designed record sleeve can.
             Its not a lost art, just a seemingly neglected one.
             Jerry Goldsmith's score for Alien has never dated. It truly is a special one. It so captures the dark romance of man's dreams of travelling through the black eternal sea of space.Its just genius.
