Twin Peaks – music by Angelo Badalamenti

Twin PeaksThe soft-pedaled, murky, mysterious jazz-like music that accompanied this 1990 TV series perfectly suited the murky, weird and often just plain ridiculous setting of the show. But does it make for a good soundtrack? Well…maybe not. A lot of the material is repetitive, but those who were closely attached to the show may find it to be of more nostalgic value. My recommendation? Go instead and get Julee Cruise’s album Floating 3 out of 4Into The Night, which has the theme song as well as more memorable music than the Twin Peaks album itself. For distinctive and interesting music, the movie derived from the TV show was better (though that’s about the only respect in which the movie was better than its TV parent).
