CD Reviews

Very little music
(3 out of 5 stars)

"This album contains very little actual music. The best stuff are the snippets of Fats Waller playing pipe organ. If you want that stuff, go to the source: get "Young Fats at the Organ." It has the complete recordings of all the snippets heard on this CD and you can appreciate them in their true context. They're not creepy, but very beautiful and somber recordings, very much worth listening to. I like this film a lot, and have seen it many times, but I have to admit that this CD is pretty lacking in comparison. Movie =A ; CD =C+"
It's the stuff Nightmares are born from...

"Any fan of Music Will enjoy this fine line of the Heavenly and the Horrified. A tuned ear will understand this to be true music and not the [music] we have to indulge in now. Any Back Street boys fan will be on the edge of insanity listening to this masterwork of the Legendary Director, David Lynch.
Most People can't handle the film, Eraserhead, and they close their eyes to the things they see....they're listening to this.
Which happens to be the most unsettling part of the whole trip through Eraserhead. The sounds are too real to be real. They're so odd and rude to the mind of the listener that you may think your insane, and really realizing it for the first time. It's been known to be playing in many suicides. Anything with that much power must be seen, or heard...To be believed. Too incredible for words, It's one of those things you love or hate so much, that your brain makes words that aren't real for the passionate feelings of it. The words we'll never say."

"You know, it's strange how music which has a certain function, instead performs a different one. Just like in circus music, and in lullabies, in the right light they actually sound quite dark and frightening, when they're supposed to give 'happy thoughts'. The organ playing of Fats Waller is no exception. Playing this will remind you of Henry and give a feeling of isolation and alienation. This is the highlight of this already brilliant soundtrack. Haunting stuff."
