Brilliant and inspiring,
This review is from: Twin Peaks (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.
