ALIEN - Alien 25th Anniversary Edition [2CD] remastered) mp3, download

After so many years claiming for official reissues, the essential ALIEN self titled debut – for many into the Top-10 AOR albums of all time – was freshly remastered and released by EMI Music Sweden / Warner to celebrate its 25th Anniversary.
This majestic, 2-CD deluxe edition of ALIEN’s self-titled first album – the superb Swedish AOR / Melodic Rock act fronted by Jim Jidhed – includes the original Scandinavian 1988 edition (remastered), plus 2 bonus tracks, and a 2nd disc with the album remixed version for the American market, also remastered.
Released five years ago, this was a limited edition which turned out of print in blink of an eye. Now it has been re-printed 2019, again in a strictly 1,000 copies.

Even though Alien first album is three decades old now, it has lost nothing of its magic. This is a seminal recording regarded by fans and critics (including myself) as one of the finest European AOR releases of all time.

Packed with outstanding melodic songs plenty of Scandi charm conducted by the extraordinary guitar work from Tony Borg and the soaring, perfect-pitch Jim Jidhed vocals, these tunes are still a wet dream for any AOR aficionado.

This “25th Anniversary Edition” contains the original Scandinavian version with Jidhed on vocals (remastered for this reissue) as well as the later 1989 US-version (remixed and quite different at places) with new singer Pete Sandberg on some songs.
