Rad Game Music Album Art

Let‘s share some! I’ve noticed that video game music album art seems to have a little more creative leeway to produce some fun, clever, and/or weird stuff. Here's a couple that I had in mind:

Have to start with this classic...if anyone knows what's going on here, I'm all ears:

I came across this one on twitter--such class:

These are some of my favorite minimalist LP covers (the foil printing doesn't hurt, either), the Fez OST and Johto Legends: Music From Pokémon Gold & Silver by Braxton Burks:

Here's a cute one I posted in the [games where box art is a photo thread](https://forums.insertcredit.com/d/1028-games-where-the-box-art-is-a-photo/82):

I'm sure I'll think of plenty more :)


I just realized I forgot to post the one that was _the literal inspiration_ for this thread!

I’ve seen this touchy art before, but only now do I have enough context to fully appreciate it, as if the OST is some kind of diagetic relic discovered by the heavenly samurais scouring post-apocalyptic Tokyo. Sometimes I kinda wish the OST art was used as the actual game box art and this is definitely an example of that!

lol SMTIV is what I immediately thought of, back to the drawing board….

I don't often say things like this but this here is absolutely dope as heck!

not to be indelicate but any plans for a CD reprint that you know of @Chopemon?

@“captain”#p61020 I didn't realise they needed a reprint.

Oh, are you in the US? Black Screen still have some but we're not reprinting them because there wasn't much demand. Maybe the other suppliers are out of stock?


The vinyl has had several reprints but there is more demand for vinyl than CDs which is crazy to me just because of the convenience of CDs.

Thank you for the nice words though!

I really like albums that don't use art form the game or seemingly even associated with the game like Killer7 [upl-image-preview url=//i.imgur.com/Wgd5Npp.png]

@“Chopemon”#p61078 Bwaaaah! Black Screen does still have some in stock! I just looked at the Ship to Shore page and saw the vinyl (one of the pressings thereof) was the only thing available. I like vinyl and everything, but man, it can't kill my love for CDs. Thanks for the link!

The stylization of “Kiki Kaikai” on this is so insanely dope
