Album Review

Composer Angelo Badalamenti, known for his work with the off-key film director David Lynch, hooks up with another oddball, Stephen Shainberg, for Secretary, and turns out another of his highly original, moody, ambient scores. The music is both gentle and faintly menacing, similar to Badalamenti's work on such Lynch efforts as Blue Velvet and Lost Highway, but a bit lighter and less haunting. Badalamenti is a minimalist who focuses on details in his slow-moving works, so that an individual plucked guitar pattern or wind-like sweep of strings, often with echo added, carries much force. The effect is to support the unusual tones of the Lynch films, as well as this one. The soundtrack album opens with Leonard Cohen's 1988 song "I'm Your Man," a statement of devotion in keeping with the film's theme, and concludes with Lizzie West's "Chariots Rise," which is reminiscent of the work of Natalie Merchant and Marianne Faithfull, and is another love song with a whiff of victimhood.

Customer Reviews

the soundtrack to your life

weither you have seen this film or not the score just blows you away, to find the soundtrack on itunes completely threw me and i baught it straight away. you will place the music right in your own life and it becomes about you and your own life and not just Lee Holloway.

Simply Stunning

There is nothing like this's simply amazing. I actually heard the soundtrack before I watched the film, and there is no comparison...they are both just fantasitic. So to see this on me a favour, try to buy this soundtrack somewhere else. I've tried and in the places you can buy it, they're asking for nearly £30 for it. And for the record....James Spader - mmmmm

Great soundtrack

I love the soundtrack but why doesn't iTunes have the film? It's one of my favourites please please please add it to iTunes!
