Boomkat Product Review:
Completing the one-two of soundtrack discs from Twin Peaks The Return, this is the Music From the Limited Event Series, containing pretty much all the songs from the Roadhouse scenes; from a new Nine Inch Nails song to classic rock by ZZ Top and even Dirty Beaches’ Alex Zhang Hangtag with Dean Hurley and Riley Lynch (David’s son) as Trouble.
In classic Lynch fashion, the closing scenes were often total non-sequiturs to the madness which preceded them, and, despite a few duds, they were mostly watchable as we all tried to figure out the past hour’s events.
There are strong moments in the likes of NIN’s heaving industro-dub growler, She’s Gone Away, and likewise in the cocksure swagger of Trouble’s Snake Eyes, or the diaphanous latin torchsong of Rebekah Del Rio’s No Stars (the one with Moby on bass).
However, Julee Cruise's already familiar (and re-recorded?) version of The World Spins ends the set, and the series, to spine tingling effect - just so damn good.
