What our staff has to say: “Angelo Badalamenti’s score for Twin Peaks plays such a huge role in setting the atmosphere of the series’ creepy and sleepy PNW town. The same holds true for his score for Lynch’s unsettling Twin Peaks film follow-up, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me. All of the classic Badalamenti elements are here: muted trumpet, soft synths, and the occasional swelling strings. If you’re a Twin Peaks fan, add this 2xLP reissue to your collection and enter the Black Lodge…from the safety of your own living room, of course.” – Hannah
From the brooding opening bars of the main Fire Walk With Me Theme, Angelo Badalamenti’s gorgeous, eerie score introduces us to a cinematic experience which significantly begins with the smashing of a television screen. Just as the Main Title from Blue Velvet echoed the Hitchcockian hues of Bernard Herrmann, so here we have just the slightest touch of Taxi Driver, as Jim Hynes’ plaintive, keening trumpet soars above a landscape of melancholy keyboards, drawing us into a world which is at once alien and familiar.
