NME Names Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me Best Soundtrack Ever

Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me best soundtrack ever according to NMEThe New Musical Express, better known as the NME, recently named Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me the best film soundtrack EVER. In a top 50 published last week on the site of the popular British music magazine, Angelo Badalamenti’s soundtrack to the Twin Peaks prequel took the number one spot in the list, ahead of classics like Prince’s Purple Rain, Trainspotting, Blade Runner, The Virgin Suicides by AIR, and the brilliant Tarantino movie soundtracks, Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill. Another David Lynch movie soundtrack, Lost Highway, appears halfway down the list at #24.

As to why the album deserves gold, NME writes: “Combining plangent beauty with a kind of clanking evil jazz, this is one of those endlessly evocative soundtracks that takes up residence in your subconscious and never leaves.” They did, however, link to the Twin Peaks theme instead of the motion picture’s theme, which leaves me wondering if they really meant the film soundtrack at all. Either way, good choice!

You can listen to both Soundtrack from Twin Peaks and Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me straight from this site.
