From the brooding opening bars of the main "Fire Walk With Me" theme, Angelo Badalamenti’s gorgeous, eerie score introduces us to a cinematic experience which significantly begins with the smashing of a television screen. Just as the main title from BLUE VELVETt echoed the Hitchcockian hues of Bernard Herrmann, so here we have just the slightest touch of TAXI DRIVER, as Jim Hynes’ plaintive, keening trumpet soars above a landscape of melancholy keyboards, drawing us into a world which is at once alien and familiar. $33
