Sacred Bones Records unearthed a select number of copies of the soundtrack to David Lynch's T.V masterpiece, "Twin Peaks." Originally released on CD by Lynch over 5 years ago, but now very difficult to find, Twin Peaks Season Two Music & More compiles the classic music that defined this series. Composed by Angelo Badalamenti with contributions from Lynch, this soundtrack is renowned for the way it so perfectly matched the chilling, sinister, though often quite funny tone of one of the greatest television shows ever.
While the first Twin Peaks soundtrack was fairly accessible, thanks to its gothic noir-pop atmosphere (and its three Julee Cruise songs), this CD feels a little more hermetic. Its dark charms take longer to take hold, but theyre there, all right. A reworking of the shows famous love theme opens the proceedings, and after that the album slowly builds up a unique 1950s-influenced atmosphere, sexy in a vaguely scary way. Composer Angelo Badalamenti easily moves from warped takes on Americana ("High School Swing") to blues ("Drug Deal Blues"), from laidback jazz ("Josie and Truman") to lascivious grind ("Blue Frank"). Stars Sheryl Lee and Lara Flynn Boyle contribute vocals to "Just You" (lyrics by David Lynch), possibly one of the creepiest love ballads ever recorded. Typically, a cryptic hidden track is positioned before the first one. You must press the rewind button to access it. --Elisabeth Vincentelli

Music was, of course, central to the dark theme and mood of the show, and to find additional songs in digital quality is a treat, an unexpected one at that.
...and I gotta throw my two cents in on the song left out of the CD that should be in: when James is riding his Harley around at the beginning of that 2nd season episode, that full-reverb, clean-electric guitar rock n' roll riff. That was one of my favorites!
