5.0 out of 5 stars mood scenes of Angelo Badalamenti, 14 Dec. 2009
This review is from: Twin Peaks (Audio CD)
The music of Angelo Badalamenti often has this mysterious quality to it which keeps you involved and in suspense appropriate to the viewing experience of the movie scenes the music was design to accompany. I have never watched neither the Twin Peaks movies nor tv series (and it is something I'm still looking forward to do some day), but I have seen both Blue Velvet and Mulholland Drive and I do know how his music interacts with the movies by David Lynch. I do love surrounding myself with the soundtrack music of Angelo Badalamenti and to have his mysterious, often emotional, unique ambient moods become part of my listening experience. The music of the soundtrack to Twin Peaks has this special spooky aspect to it which makes this album even more unique to Angelo Badalamenti. Our experience has a lot to do with the engineering of sound where melodies seem to flow a bit off center; the focus is turned to the ambient noise and arrangements keeping us a bit on the edge of something (in the words of the composer himself) `tragically beautiful'. This phrase describes the mood perfectly. I am really attracted to how mellow this soundtrack is overall. It is soothing and relaxing and after a few hours of being within this music you may also find yourself a bit withdrawn from your every day's reality and closer to your world of dreams. Try listening to track number 8 Night Life In Twin Peaks on repeat 1 for a couple of hours. It gets quite bizarre after a while. Many of Angelo's soundtracks are very good, but overall this one is my favorite one. My favorite songs by Angelo Badalamenti are the following: Rose's Theme, Fire Walk With Me, Mysteries Of Love, Twin Peaks Theme, Miette, Mulholland Drive, Rose's Theme Delayed, Final Elevator, Laura Palmer's Theme, Gacnacrique, Why Do You Cry?, Diane And Camillia, Nightingale, Theme From The Comfort Of Strangers, Overture For The Wicker Man, Questions In The World Of Blue, Mysteries Of Love Instrumental, Falling.
