The music itself holds up. It's ethereal and timeless. It absorbs you and transports you to a different place. And hearing it on a good stereo instead of through your TV speakers is quite a treat, you hear details you didn't hear before. I like it.
Regarding the "coffee-colored" vinyl: There's a debate about whether colored vinyl sacrifices sound quality; I have a few records in different colors that don't sound as good as standard black vinyl. So I was prepared to be slightly disappointed in the sound quality of this release on colored vinyl. But it sounds very good. Not audiophile reference quality, but very good for a standard-priced vinyl record.
The packaging is very nice. The white outer slip cover surrounds a removable gatefold album cover with nice Twin Peaks art, a pic of Badalamenti in the middle, performer credits, and an interesting short essay with background on how he came to be a frequent collaborator with David Lynch.
I think the whole package is a bit overpriced at $45. The record company and Amazon are taking advantage of fans' anticipation for Season 3 coming in a few months, and the recent resurgence in vinyl. Twin Peaks fans from the '90s are more mature and have higher incomes today, and seem like a good target for a product like this. On the other hand, giving the record company the benefit of the doubt, it must be true that this is a limited run and therefore production costs are higher than if it were mass-produced. So I don't feel so bad about spending a bit more. But still, I'd wait a while to see if it goes on sale, or comes down in price, or is eligible for some type of discount.
All things considered, I'm pleased with the purchase and feel lucky that I got a flawless copy.
