5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning Soundtrack To An Overlooked Masterpiece
This incredible soundtrack to David Lynch's grossly underrated film features some of composer Angelo Badalamenti's most effective and haunting music. The 12 tracks included here are wildly divergent, encompassing ambient instrumentals, jazz interludes and several pieces which defy categorization.

Of particular note is Julee Cruise's "Questions In A World Of...

1.0 out of 5 stars Who killed Twin Peaks?
"Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me" is probably the worst film ever made. It becomes doubly worse, since it was made by David Lynch. He should have known better. Too much transcendental meditation? Naturally, the worst movie just gotta have the worst soundtrack. In *that* sense, Angelo Badalamenti doesn't disappoint. With the exception of Julee Cruise's "Questions in a world...

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning Soundtrack To An Overlooked Masterpiece, 3 July 2011
This review is from: Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me (Audio CD)
This incredible soundtrack to David Lynch's grossly underrated film features some of composer Angelo Badalamenti's most effective and haunting music. The 12 tracks included here are wildly divergent, encompassing ambient instrumentals, jazz interludes and several pieces which defy categorization.

Of particular note is Julee Cruise's "Questions In A World Of Blue", as beautiful in its own way as her legendary "Falling". "The Pink Room", one of the dirtiest grindhouse freakouts ever committed to tape, features a brilliantly haunting bassline written by Lynch, and stunning reverb-drenched guitar by David Jaurequi.

The spoken-word lurching bass-growl of "The Black Dog Runs At Night" is as spine-chilling as Jimmy Scott's vocal on "Sycamore Trees", both pieces perfectly encapsulating the darkness at the core of the film. "The Voice Of Love" is one of the most emotional synthesizer pieces Badalamenti has ever committed to tape.

This is a stunning companion to an overlooked masterpiece, and an essential purchase for anyone wishing to further explore the incredible work of David Lynch.

(NOTE- Cherubini's "Agnus Dei", which features in the film's closing moments, is sadly not included on this disc. The exact version featured in the film can be ordered here).

4.0 out of 5 stars Another moody, musical journey from Badalamenti, 9 Dec 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me (Audio CD)
Following the brilliant TV soundtrack, this album is a worthy follow-up. If you loved the first Twin Peaks soundtrack, you will for sure enjoy this one as well, although it lacks some of the magic captured on the first album. Here are dark and moody tunes as well as bright, up-tempo jazz, not to mention another dreamy song from Julee Cruise, "Questions In A World Of Blue". Just like the movie did, it carries a darker mood than its predecessor.

5.0 out of 5 stars A blend of the darkness and the beautiful, 8 Oct 2010
By 
Fire Walk with Me is an underrated film, what has never been in doubt is the quality of Angelo Badalamentis comtribution to Twin Peaks, his themes are constantly moving throughout the show and the movie.

Badalamenti moves away from the themes of the series (although occasionally he does use a couple) and has created a truely memorable soundtrack to a haunting and beautiful film.
I say beautiful simply for the last track which is stunning and if you see the movie you will understand even more.

top stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars twin peaks soundtracks are always 5 stars., 4 Mar 2008
This review is from: Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me (Audio CD)
'moving through time' is one of the most beautiful pieces of music i've ever heard... worth paying 7 for. you also get 'sycamore trees' from the last episode of the series and the off-the-wall hip hop of 'a real indication'. a brilliant soundtrack.

1.0 out of 5 stars Who killed Twin Peaks?, 5 Oct 2013
This review is from: Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me (Audio CD)
"Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me" is probably the worst film ever made. It becomes doubly worse, since it was made by David Lynch. He should have known better. Too much transcendental meditation? Naturally, the worst movie just gotta have the worst soundtrack. In *that* sense, Angelo Badalamenti doesn't disappoint. With the exception of Julee Cruise's "Questions in a world of blue", the tracks on this album are very, very embarrassing trash. This really must be the worst music composed since at least the Permian extinction! Does anyone still want to know who killed Laura Palmer?
