Enter the Clown! Over a year in the making, the music from It, the 1990 TV adaptation of the 1986 horror novel, in its entirety, is on vinyl for the first time. Matt Ryan Tobin handled the artwork, which Stephen King approved, and the visual alone is terrorizing af. Put the needle down on the first track and more creepiness ensues, especially if you are a fan of the miniseries and can recall the way the sadistic, wisecracking Pennywise The Dancing Clown would hunt his prey. If you could separate the chilling on-screen exploits of Pennywise from the sonics, however, most of the orchestral-meets-electronic compositions ("Enter the Clown," "The Smell of Death") on the soundtrack have somewhat of calming qualities to them; that doesn't include tracks like "George Dies" or "The Spider's Web," which are full of tension and just scream brutal clown murder. 3LP 180g "balloon" colored (red, blue, and yellow) vinyl, re-mastered for vinyl, deluxe packaging, tri-fold jacket w/ spot UV-gloss coating, 12" x 12" printed insert included.
