9/10 Ant Staff review, 31 July 2012

Another holy grail soundtrack reissued in fine style. This has been out of print for some time since its issue on Alternative Tentacles. The film and the soundtrack have long been a personal favourite and I really never thought I’d be sat here writing about it, let alone a reissue on Sacred Bones!

It’s a wonderfully put together package in gatefold sleeve with three 11”x11” prints of stills from the film and a large booklet. Pressed on high quality virgin vinyl with a download code, includes a previously unreleased track plus a 7” of Peter Ivers’s ‘In Heaven’ with a long-lost never-before-heard Ivers cut on the flip. I’d say it’s pretty essential for any fan of the work or collectors of David Lynch ephemera. As for the audio, well it’s classic dark shit, full of unease and menace lurking in the shadows, the rumbling behind the radiator. You know the score surely?


7/10 Andy Customer review, 14th August 2014

An astonishing, peerless masterpiece, the soundtrack to David Lynch's debut labor of love creates a world of haunting mechanics and sexual distress in such a bizarre layer of sonic fog that any record collection is simply poorer without it. The enormity of the aural experimentation is extraordinary. With renowned sound designer Alan Splet, Lynch developed any technique he could conjure up -- from recording with pieces of glass tubing, pneumatic engines, or water-based pieces of machinery -- to produce sounds never heard before (or since) in any medium. Pieces of Fats Waller filter in through the unsettling haze. The sounds of the unimaginably horrific baby are nothing less than ghastly. Few directors could have realized such a potent vision only a first time out. Disturbing, haunting, and -- decades later -- still one of the most compelling sonic creations in the history of film.
