5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic of Diversity June 30, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
It's been nearly seven years since the FIRE, WALK WITH ME soundtrack first appeared, and as other rave reviews here attest, it has if anything increased its appeal. What makes the album especially unique is its diversity. Film scores are usually all of a kind, and Angelo Badalamenti ­ who became a household name with his music for the TWIN PEAKS series on TV ­ could have followed that course. But except for the obligatory Julee Cruise song "Questions in a World of Blue" (good, but not in the same class as "Falling" or "The World Spins"), he avoided that temptation. Instead, he plays with musical genres and perhaps even invents new ones. The opening theme (also known as "She Would Die for Love") and "Don't Do Anything (I wouldn't Do)" are among the best film noir jazz and cool jazz pieces ever written; they would be right at home in night club repertories. But where else have we heard anyting resembling "Sycamore Trees" (which helped revive the career of Jimmy Scott)? Or "A Real Indication" (sort of a cross between rap and a parody of beat poetry from the 60's)? "Moving through Time" plays like a reinvention of chamber music, with jazz instrumentation but classical structure. Everyone who writes about Badalamenti seems to stress his reliance on synthesizers, but what is really important about his work is his synthesis of musical styles and genres in the tradition of George Gershwin and Nino Rota.As a footnote, it's startling to hear "The Pink Room" after reading accounts that David Lynch himself knows nothing about music. He can obviously give techno music composers a run for their money!

5.0 out of 5 stars Not your average soundtrack July 23, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
By the third track of this collection, people usually ask "what the heck is this?", when I play it at work. When the familiar trebly bass intro of the "Twin Peaks" theme surfaces, everyone knows it's the world of David Lynch, rising up from today's post-modern stupor to alternately jar and soothe the psyche. The music is as bizarre and yet as intriguing as the film; it's also a testament to the symbiosis of director Lynch and composer/compiler Angelo Badalamenti that moods and themes in cinema both inspire and demand great music. For me the best (and most haunting) track is "Sycamore Trees", which played, curiously enough, in the final episode of the television series, not in "Fire Walk With Me". Still, it's good to have the complete, off-kilter soundtrack to a fascinating world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Horror jazz June 5, 2005
Format:Audio CD
A lot of people don't get this record and are probably better off buying something by Enya or Enigma. This is not new age BS! It's not a conventional soundtrack either. Angelo Badalamenti and David Lynch created an entire new genre: horror jazz! It's cool, groovy, jazzy...but something's horribly wrong. Midnight music for when the ghosts come out. From tranquility to insanity.

Unfortunately horror jazz never really took off. I know of only one pure horror jazz track outside Badalamenti's work: 'Venus Velvet' by the Bobby Brown Quartet from the mid-1960s.

I want more horror jazz. I love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars very hard to explain > captivating January 15, 2006
By ncapguy
Format:Audio CD
The music contained in this soundtrack as well as the soundtrack from the tv series is in a word "amazing" ... the theme song from the series soundtrack is on a level of it's own as far as "tranquil beauty" goes.... that is however... only until you are able to be absorbed by the hauntingly striking ballad > "questions in a world of blue" with Julee Cruz providing eerily soothing vocals...... when I heard a small part of that song when watching the dvd "Fire walk with me" ... I became almost hypnotized by the beauty of the ballad, knowing I had to have access to this soundtrack over and over again... tremendous movie ,,, wierd for sure ... in a unique way.... this soundtrack and the soundtrack from the series are must haves for anyone who likes music... and everyone who wishes to expand their horizons and in many cases surprise themselves... this music is unbelievable!

5.0 out of 5 stars Dreamy, Dark, Brilliant December 21, 2005

Overwhelmingly moody. This is the best soundtrack since The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. Had a bad day? Let Angelo's soothing sounds put you at peace.

4.0 out of 5 stars Creepy cool. September 13, 2005
By H3@+h
Format:Audio CD
Despite the fact that every other movie seems to have it's own soundtrack, few match the mood of the film as well as "Fire Walk With Me" does. The theme here may not be as recognizable as the one from the TV show, but it's just as enjoyable. Truth is, this soundtrack is even stranger and darker than the other, yet just as good. The majority of this music is prime stuff for old smokey clubs, the kind with pianos playing, horns blowing, and fingers snapping. The kind that rarely exist anymore. That's what the movies tell us anyway. One track is a bit jarring, "A Real Indication". The music is good, but it's spoken word with a few near screaming parts. However, afterwards comes "Questions In A World Of Blue", which should lull you back into a pleasant coma. Overall a very wonderful album, even if you haven't seen the movie. If you really love this, I also suggest the TV soundtrack, and anything from Julee Cruise.

3.0 out of 5 stars Creepy just as I like it! October 18, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I loved Twin Peaks when it was on television. I think I bought this and the television soundtrack because I loved the sound and the music so much. It is fitting that I write this before Halloween. Twin Peaks USA is a unique fictional town where the inhabitants are strange creatures themselves like the log lady among the others. Anyway, the sound here for the film is similar to the soundtrack. I like the sound and think it's appropriate for Halloween.
