This is possibly one of the best experimental progressive records ever made in the Italian golden era. This legendary soundtrack combines elements of electronic music and sound scary effects going far beyond traditional background scoring, becoming an integral part of the film. As critics say nowadays, Suspiria music "is so perfectly integrated into the film, fares less well as a stand-alone item. All that pounding, howling, thumbing, and wheezing is enough to send chills down your spine even without the movie images (it is the perfect imaginary soundtrack), but not all of it could be called a pleasant listening experience (unless your idea of pleasant is having your nerves set on edge)."
The original Suspiria vinyl record album featured two sleeves. When removed from the outer sleeve, the inner sleeve unfolded to reveal a pop-up of Dario Argento's initials, decorated with the demonic Goblin logo and the dead ballerina poster art from SUSPIRIA. The inner sleeve featured a black-and-white photo of Argento working with Goblin in the recording studio, plus several color photos from the film, including behind the scenes images of Argento on set.
This reissue features the same pop-up system, although inverted: this time the outer sleeve will reveal its astounding secret as it was intended in the original project! So this one is even better than the original.
Of course the LP is the usual AMS heavy 180g high quality audiophile vinyl!
