Under The Radar

This is a terrific and ambitious mining of a rich creative world that returns with gold.

Xiu Xiu's tribute to the music of Twin Peaks is one of their most haunting and beautiful LPs in years.

Xiu Xiu Plays the Music of Twin Peaks is a dense album that seems at its best when it sticks to Badalamenti’s template, filling up nostalgia for the show with acoustic intimacy and emotional affect.

A fantastic love letter to a classic soundtrack. Xiu Xiu perfectly capture the tragic and eerie vibe of the original score whilst still adding their own charm to it to make this version their own. Even if you aren't a Twin Peaks fan I would still recommend hearing this as it is a fantastic ambient record from Xiu Xiu.

Best Track: Laura Palmer's Theme
Worst Track: Sycamore Tree

You know, this is - excuse me - a damn fine album. I've listened to I can't tell you how many albums in my life and this, this is one of the best. Now I'd like two eggs over hard. I know, don't tell me, it's hard on the arteries, but old habits die hard, just about as hard as I want those eggs.

If I can remember to pause before the last track, this album would be even more amazing.

I woke up today thinking I was going to be alright, then I listened to Xiu Xiu and wasn't.
