Eraserhead rests firmly at the top of that canon of American underground culture for which there is no genre. A staple of the dark underbelly of popular cinema that was originally only viewable at arthouse screenings or on the Midnight Movie circuit, Eraserhead is a truly unadulterated offering; and much of it's sensation lies beyond the purely visual realm. The stark, dusty black and white images put forth are caked with and submerged in a dense jungle of industrial hums, buzzes, screeches and screams. Eraserhead is a narrative made up of two intertwined veins: one of bleak and beautiful pictures elegantly painted in gray and black, and one of blankets of sublime, enveloping noise and static, the tinkering of Fats Waller organ rolls echoing in the background. To lay in the dark and listen to this dizzying succession of blissful noise is a different way to get "lost" than in the visuals of the film itself. It's no stretch to consider this soundtrack an experimental, early industrial masterpiece. Eraserhead's individual passion and personal tone shines through even in the thickest moments of fierce static, an audio undertaking that took David Lynch and sound designer Alan Splet years to perfect. Eraserhead's most famous piece of music is undoubtedly Peter Ivers' unforgettable, oft-covered haunting ballad "In Heaven," and the most exciting attribute of this edition of the soundtrack is no doubt it's expansion, and it's present here, along with "Pete's Boogie," an Ivers recording previously only available on the long out-of-print limited edition LP of this soundtrack.
