5 Extraordinary music for an extraordinary filmapopheniac | 27/02/2008 | See all apopheniac's reviews (16)David Lynch is one of the most innovative forces in modern cinema, and Lost Highway is a twisted little mobius strip of a film that doesn't go for the soft option or the easy answer - rather like the man behind Nine Inch Nails, Trent Reznor, who compiled the soundtrack that accompanies it.As a result you get a combination of music that, frankly, boggles the mind every bit as much as the film does. David Bowie, Marilyn Manson and The Smashing Pumpkins rub shoulders with Lynch stalwart Angelo Badalementi and Lou Reed wanders in for good measure. Nine Inch Nails even got in the charts with a song from the album, "The Perfect Drug." The CD is worth getting just to hear the production on that track, but watch your speakers with those amazing bass sounds. I bought the album when the film came out and spent most of that year with the CD permanently stuck in my discman; the combination of music genres is spot-on. It was the first time I'd encountered the music of German metal superstars Rammstein, too. You don't forget that in a hurry."This is where mechanical excellence and one thousand four hundred horsepower pays off," says Mr Eddy. Oh yes. Happy days.
