Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

It's no exaggeration to say that, though it lasted only 30 episodes, Twin Peaks started a revolution in North American television. In partnership with unsung hero Mark Frost, the visionary filmmaker David Lynch (Eraserhead, Blue Velvet) brought his dark and surreal perceptions to the small screen. 1980's TV had been dominated by the glossy soap operas Dallas and Dynasty: Twin Peaks subverted their formula and opened the door for Northern Exposure and The X Files. Essential to the show's impact was the extraordinarily atmospheric score by Angelo Badalamenti, and the fragile, little-girl-lost vocals of Julee Cruise. The main themes, portraying the town of Twin Peaks itself, and murdered teenager Laura Palmer, alternate between a lush, decadent and world-weary poetry and a fairytale innocence. While on three songs--"The Nightingale", "Into The Night" and the gorgeous "Falling"--Julee Cruise seems to summon ghosts out of the misty, autumnal air. Elsewhere the composer blends lonesome synthesisers with mournful solo instruments, creating otherworldly textures hinting at the dreamlike jazz to come in his score for the feature version, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me. Other notable Badalamenti-Lynch collaborations include Lost Highway and The Straight Story. --Gary S. Dalkin

5.0 out of 5 stars Please buy this CD. 12 Jan 2002
Format:Audio CD
Surely, everyone must have heard of the TV series Twin Peaks, and most will be aware of the huge impact it had on its premiere, ten years ago. Twin Peaks is still unbeaten as the most absorbing, complicated, thought provoking and convoluted soap ever made, and has to be one of the most significant TV series of all time. Part of the essential, unique Twin Peaks atmosphere is down to the music. Angelo Badalamenti's luscious score, full of gently absorbing and repeating motifs, is an essential. Completely beautiful, occasionally unsettling and always rewarding, the soundtrack immediately transports the listener to the town of Twin Peaks. Jazz-eccentricity, swaying grooves, eerie flutes whistling through forests: all are perfectly captured here. And, just when you think it can't get any better, Julee Cruise's immaculate vocals appear on a couple of tracks. The whispering, swirling sound of Julee's voice is the real sound of Twin Peaks. Occasionally eccentric, often heartbreakingly peaceful and lonely.
Please buy this CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant and inspiring 21 Dec 2001
Format:Audio CD
I was thinking of giving this soundtrack 4/5 stars - after all, compared with soundtrack heavyweights like The Godfather, Twin Peaks with its three-or-four songs (and many variations thereof) seems a bit limited. But what songs they are - each one conjures up the elusive, ambiguous feel of the TV series instantly - the main theme has an immediate Lynch vibe, The Dance of the Dream Man is music to go mad to (clicking your fingers all the way) and is perhaps the best surrealist music (or music for surrealism) since Eraserhead, while the Laura Palmer theme makes me think I'm going to stumble across a dead cheerleader's body any moment now, even in the middle of a sunny day.
No, you can't deny Badalamenti's musical genius - this is unarguably the greatest TV soundtrack ever made.

4.0 out of 5 stars Atmospheric and spooky 18 Oct 2002
By Pieter Uys HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
One of the most outstanding soundtracks ever to enhance a TV series. Weep along to Laura Palmer's Theme, Admire Audrey's dance, vibe on Night Life In Twin Peaks and let Julee Cruise give you the sensation of a flotation tank with her dreamy vocals on Into The Night, The Nightingale and Falling. Ethereal sounds that appropriately encapsulate the mood of the series filled with a thousand secrets.

4.0 out of 5 stars Twin Peaks 4 Oct 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I had to get the soundtrack after purchasing the Twin Peaks Gold Edition set. For the most part it's great. It comes with a little booklet with cast photos and song lyrics. I really liked as well that Amazon gives you a free MP3 version now if you buy a CD.

A few downsides, it was quite cheap, and it does feel it a bit. The CD case and printing on the insert and CD aren't great. The main downside however, is that is feels like it's missing a few songs. A good example is, 'Rockin' Back Inside My Heart' by Julee Cruise - which was in the show. But I could always buy her CD 'Floating Into The Night' if I wanted it, it's just a shame.

4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect bedtime music 30 Nov 2013
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
This really is a lovely sound track. Perfect for nodding off to. The only slight disappointment was with the bit rate. Everything is 320kbps these days and so I was slightly surprised to see 256kbps. It sounds absolutely fine of course and I'm just being pedantic.
