Spooky and cool--those two words pretty much sum up this soundtrack for David Lynch's stranger-than-usual movie. It's a mix of hard-edged techno-industrial, slightly spooky jazz, and orchestral compositions from Angelo Badalamenti. David Bowie's "I'm Deranged" is a major highlight, proving once again that he is the coolest man on the planet. Badalamenti's instrumental tracks are reminiscent of Elliot Goldenthal's Interview with the Vampire soundtrack, although "Dub Driving" sounds like an accompaniment to Sam Spade. Sandwiched between a pair of tense city-thriller tracks by Barry Adamson, Lou Reed's rendition of "This Magic Moment" acquires its own disturbing dimension, but the most entertaining track on this CD is, without a doubt, Marilyn Manson's rendition of "I Put a Spell on You." It's not exactly party music, but it's loaded with atmosphere. --Genevieve Williams

Trent Reznor (of Nine Inch Nails) takes on a similar role that he had on the soundtrack to Oliver Stone's 'Natural Born Killers' - he is the album producer, but also adds snippets from the movie, and makes the tracks seamlessly flow together. In both cases, the album becomes not necessarily a companion to the film anymore, but rather almost a work of art in itself.
The music itself on the Lost Highway soundtrack is amazing and varied. David Lynch has always made excellent choices for his soundtracks, and this is no exception. The album starts and ends with different edits of David Bowie's 'I'm Deranged', one of the most beautiful pieces I have heard from him in a long while. In between these two bookends, though, anything goes, from heavy/industrial rock (Nine Inch Nails, Marilyn Manson, Rammstein) to latin jazz (Antonio Carlos Jobim) to pop/rock (Smashing Pumpkins, Lou Reed). Of course there are also more 'soundtracky' pieces from Barry Adamson, Trent Reznor and Lynch's 'resident composer' Angelo Badalamenti.
The highlights for me are Bowie, Badalamenti and Adamson, but special mention to Rammstein for that low menacing voice, it fits the scene in the film so perfectly. And Nine Inch Nails' 'The Perfect Drug' is an excellent song also.
If you've seen the movie and noticed the music, I probably don't need to convince you, but whether you've seen the movie or not, I assure you this album is well worth a listen.
