Angelo Badalamenti's score loses much of it's eeriness without David Lynch's haunting images to accompany it. Nevertheless, that oppressive atmosphere is still present here. Reminiscent of his work on Twin Peaks, it is at times fleshed out with swaths of strings, and at others little more than extended passages of low rumbling noises. A sprinkling of obscure but classic songs from the fifties provides some welcome light relief in the form of Sonny Boy Williamson, Milt Buckner and a truly bizarre a cappella version of Roy Orbison's "crying". This album has all that you might expect from a David Lynch soundtrack. Worth a listen even if you're not a Lynch fan and an essential purchase if you are.
