Leaves you there

barium

Achingly melancholic chamber music courtesy of Lurie who also stars in Jarmusch's sublimely deadpan first feature. Lurie's compositions from this same period for his post-bop no-wave jazz group Lounge Lizards give just a little hint that he could compose the familiar (if not derivative) consonant dissonance present here. Captures the film's milieu perfectly. Stands on its own as off-kilter mood music.

They Say All Music Guide

John Lurie’s soundtrack to the Jim Jarmusch cult classic Stranger Than Paradise remains among his best work; this cassette release also includes his adventurous The Return of Albert Ayler, making it an even better purchase. – Jason Ankeny
