He's no Scorsese when it comes to soundtracks. It would have been a hell of alot better if it was entirely Badalamenti scored like Blue Velvet.
Can't disagree more. I think it's a great album - both as a soundtrack and a standalone record. I've had it since release and have listened to it a million times. It was a shame the CD never had This Mortal Coil on, though now I have Spotify and have added it to a Lost Highway playlist
The "proper" rock songs are ace - Bowie, Reed, SP. And the more atmospheric songs are also brill. I love Barry Adamson's stuff. I didn't realise for years - I assumed all that was Angelo's haha.
