BOOK REVIEWS COMING SOON!!!!
Uncut (1/04, p.124) - 4 stars out of 5 - "'Doggs' feels his way through standards in a ghostly, androgynous waver, reminiscent of his hero and friend, the legendary Jimmy Scott. David Lynch fans will love it."
Q (3/00, p.109) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...Neatly complements David Lynch's images of endless highways and patchwork fields...with some suitably open-plained backing....A useful souvenir of the complete movie experience."Uncut (1/00, p.104) - 5 stars out of 5 - "...One of those rare pieces of music which freezes time, warms your will and causes you to perceive everything around you as if it's bathed in shafts of dusty sunlight..."The Wire (12/02, p.60) - "...One of the most individual scores of the last century....The experience of floating through the tracks absolutely refutes notions of continuity, stability, causality. And as a David Lynch soundtrack, so it should..."
Q (5/95, p.122) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...David Lynch's eerily gripping television series, would have had considerably less impact without composer Angelo Badalamenti's dark, atmospherically-charged soundtrack..."Muzik (12/00, p.59) - Included in Muzik's "Top 10 Electronic Soundtracks" - "...Hypnotic, massively influential and coincidentally spawned Moby's GO..."
Q (4/96, p.100) - 2 Stars - Average - "...A tad anarchic Zappa, a touch devilish David Lynch, Disco Volante is not for the aurally fragile, but it may offer a smile to the more hardy avant-garde listener..."Melody Maker (1/27/96, p.35) - "...inhabits that Majorly grey area where high-art blurs into high-noodling....akin to getting lost in a sprawling, dimly lit and dilapidated mansion. By the end of it, you're stumbling into rooms even the owners don't go in any more..."
Alternative Press (p.146) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "DARK NIGHT's trippy, psychedelic tunes are a true treat for your ears."Billboard (p.29) - "[I]t's the airtight beats of Danger Mouse and the surreal songwriting of Linkous that make this a fascinating set."Mojo (Publisher) (p.55) - Ranked #28 in Mojo's "The 50 Best Albums Of 2010" -- "Heartbreaker of the year no question."Paste (magazine) - "[I]t's a breathtaking set of atmospheric ballads that explore cosmic concerns, from the self-destructive trap of revenge to the possibility of spiritual renewal."Clash (magazine) - "David Lynch's star shimmers brightest. His delivery of the wonky title track is simultaneously spooky and sensual..."Uncut (magazine) - "There are some big-name cameos....The guest vocalists aren't just hired hands. Each singer has shaped his or her part..."
4 stars out of 5 -- "Something of a lost cult classic....The small-town setting and supernatural elements recall TWIN PEAKS..." Uncut

3 stars out of 4 -- "It's killer funny. Cheers to Paul Rudd...who takes just the right wry comic tone as Danny....Ripe, rowdy fun."Rolling Stone "[ROLE MODELS] amuses throughout. That's in large part due to the stars, whose roles very much play to their familiar comic strengths..."Variety 3 stars out of 4 -- "Misfits and misanthropes are the heroes of ROLE MODELS, a surprisingly clever comedy....It is consistently funny, largely because of the sharp dialogue..."USA Today "ROLE MODELS wouldn't be anything without Mintz-Plasse....[His] camera presence is at once unfailingly modest and distinctive."Los Angeles Times "ROLE MODELS is the kind of movie you don't see every day, a comedy that is funny....There are nicely drawn supporting characters..."Chicago Sun-Times "The fun of ROLE MODELS is that it's a high-concept movie executed with speed and finesse and the kind of brusquely tossed-off scene banter that can get you laughing before you know what hit you." -- Grade: B+Entertainment Weekly 4 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t transcends its high concept through strong performances, filthy-smart patter, a winning affection for all its core characters and ability to hit its emotional targets without descending into slush."Empire 4 stars out of 5 -- "The cast is good enough to make it all seem like snarky improv, especially Paul Rudd....ROLE MODELS is positively grinchy -- and all the funnier for it."Total Film "[I]t's a self-improvement comedy that hits every beat on time....Rudd and Scott hail from different universes of movie comedy, but manage together here just fine..."Hollywood Reporter
