This intersting soundtrack is about the only thing worth remembering from this largely reprehensible big-screen prequel to the confusing ABC-TV series of the same name. I’ve spent years trying to block my traumatic memories of this generally bad, murky, confusing flick which has few (if any) sympathetic characters whatsoever. But oddly, the music for the movie incarnation of Twin Peaks is a bit more lively and varied than the soundtrack from the TV series. The melodies gain complexity while keeping the ethereal, light jazz feel of the TV show’s tunes. This album includes a vocal contribution from Julee Cruise, and another from Jimmy Scott, both of which are almost worth the price of the whole album; unfortunately, Angelo Badalamenti also makes a couple of vocal appearances in the guise of “Thought Gang,” which I could’ve just as easily done without.
