5.0 classicjredmond | September 11th 09

I admit my obsession with Twin Peaks as a show has definitely lended a hand in this classic rating. However, the music is one of the show's strongest tools - whether it's implemented to signify character themes or motifs, add to the postmodern parody, or perhaps to drag the viewer into the surreal, dream-scape world - a nightmarish reality conjured up by none other than Lynch. With that being said, Badalamenti never gets overly technical with this score. For the most part, the music is simple but executed with the finest precision. Smell those Douglas Firs!

I've never watched Twin Peaks, but if the music is an indication of its quality, I really ought to. This soundtrack is gorgeous, eerie, and mysterious, all at once. "Laura Palmer's Theme" is ingenious, simple yet incredibly moving, the key changes inscribing sadness, romance, and an undercurrent of dread. The main theme is also fantastic, lovely and sorrowful; "Night Life in Twin Peaks" is a vaguely Blade Runner-esque amalgamation of saxophone, brush stick jazz drumming, ambient squeaks, and dark synthesizer; "Audrey's Dance" and "Dance of the Dream Man" are more upbeat, but you won't mistake them for showtunes.

A perfect companion to the eerie and dark atmospheres of the madness that is Twin Peaks. And a damn fine album (semi-quote) too!
