Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

The Special Jury Prize winner at the 2002 Sundance Festival, director Steven Shainberg's film deftly turned a particularly tweaked boss-employee relationship into a warm, sometimes amusing meditation on sadomasochism. And while composer Angelo Badalamenti's creepy, neo-gothic soundscapes for longtime collaborator David Lynch have generally milked humanity for every last drop of perverse behavior, here his delicate, evocative instrumental underscore does precisely the opposite. Ever atmospheric, Badalamenti's electro-acoustic work--perfectly set up by Leonard Cohen's smoky "I'm Your Man"--creates a sense of both mystery and adventure, a gentle musical portrait of the troubled, longing souls beneath the overt S&M trappings. If its occasionally tinkly interplay between piano and guitar sometimes seem a tad New-Agey in scope, it also seems a telling metaphor for the story's elusive boundary between emotional darkness and light. Lizzie West's alt-folk "Chariot's Rise" neatly bookends Badalamenti and Cohen with an upbeat irony that also parallels the film's undercurrent of interpersonal fantasy. --Jerry McCulley

I came to this product hoping that I would finally find the version of "Chariots Rise" that Lizzie West recorded for the film--she changed "what a fool am I / to fall so in love" to "what grace have I." If you're looking for the same thing, be careful. I listened to the sample soundtrack on iTunes, and was disappointed to find that "Chariots Rise" was the older version. I'd be wary of buying this one if that version of the song is important to you.

This said, the score was essential to my enjoyment of the film, and if I ever find out that this soundtrack is somehow different from the iTunes version, I'll absolutely buy it.

Angelo Badalamenti! That explains why the soundtrack is AMAZING!
Wow, this movie was so great, but the movie's music was an ultra sexy crutch that made it so stellar with the plot and story! Whenever there are new sounds I fall for in movies, this guy has been the common thread behind it all. He "is" truly AMAZING! THANK YOU ANGELO!

This is the album I've been looking for, and did not know it. Jerry McCulley has already written an outstanding review on the Amazon.com order page. I cannot improve on his words and I agree 150%. You don't need to see the R-rated movie to enjoy this disc or it's bass-y theme. Get out your boring paperwork, gift-wrapping, garage clean-up plans, etc., pop this disc in the machine and enjoy the evocative sounds while you work. Are you a fan of Ramsey Lewis (band leader who recorded the 60's hit "The In-Crowd")? As bizarre as it seems, Lewis, 40 years later, comes to mind. Enjoy, my friend!

The soundtrack to SECRETARY is absolutely amazing! The music is sexy, intriguing, sensual and seductive; with a play between darkness and light. Lizzie West's "Chariots Rise" and Leonard Cohen's "I'm Your Man" are wonderful, and are very appropriate for this film. The electro-acoustic instrumental tracks are pleasing to the ears...rarely do you find such unique music to enjoy. I highly recommend this soundtrack to anyone who enjoyed the film!!!

This movie and soundtrack both make me so happy. And no other song turns me on as much as the one that plays during Lee's little fantasy sequence. Too bad I don't pay $35 for CDs.
