Aww i'm surprised that you didn't play any music track from "The Gospel According To The Men In Black" by Stranglers,and A Flock Of Seagulls self-titled album...those 2 were concept albums referring to alien invasion on earth,and 80s masterpieces.
Anyway,welcome back Lefteris!! It's nice seeing you writing again
