Illustration for article titled Which of These Albums Reimagined with Star Wars Characters Is Your Favorite?

The return of Star Wars has brought us many good things (a chance to revisit our Han Solo crushes from 4th grade) and many bad things (ketchup-infused VaderDogs). But nothing out there is as truly awesome as these album covers inspired by the Star Wars universe.

Steven Lear masters Photoshop with a Jedi-like acumen in his Instagram project @WhyTheLongPlayface, which features dozens and dozens of vinyl/Star Wars mashups.


I don’t know if it’s a case of concurrent nostalgia because some of these albums were on heavy rotation in my house during same time that the movies became a childhood obsession, or the fact that Lear completely nails it when it comes to melding certain characters with the appropriate musical reference.


One thing I do know: The “Solo” joke never, ever gets old.

Scroll through the feed strewn with Lear’s brilliance and let me know which ones are your favorites.
