The Voice of Love based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Julee Cruise's first solo album was an excellent companion piece to the ''Twin Peaks'' soundtrack, but this follow-up effort received little attention and almost seems like an afterthought. The songs are decent enough, and fans who want more of the ''Twin Peaks'' sound won't be disappointed; the formula for these tracks is pretty much the same. Angelo Badalamenti's lush arrangements flow dreamlike under her angel's breath vocals, echoing the mood of many of David Lynch's films. In fact, versions of ''Kool Kat Walk'' and ''Up In Flames'' appeared on the ''Wild At Heart'' soundtrack, while ''Questions In A World Of Blue'' and the title track were both included on the ''Fire Walk With Me'' soundtrack from the year before. ''She Would Die For Love'' revisits the ''Theme From Twin Peaks - Fire Walk With Me,'' only this time with vocals. Lynch also sculpted the clay head on the cover of this CD (check out the documentary ''Pretty As A Picture'' for the full story behind it). Sadly, Cruise's activity has dwindled in the years since the famed TV series ended, but this disc provides some of the last musical snapshots of that period.
