Better yet, buy two and give one to a friend.

In addition there is some fine work by Tom Verlaine .... someone who remains overlooked as a monumental musical talent.

I'll be honest. I bought this album for the 2 new tracks by the master, Tom Waits. I put the cd in my pick-um-up-truck this afternoon and started driving. I was blown away. Let me begin:
1. Boxcar Blues - Kenny Brown: A simple slide guitar. Makes you want to sit on top of a moving boxcar connected to a train that has just entered the darkest tunnel (and isn't going anywhere for anytime soon).
2. I love you - Asie Payton: One of the soundtrack highlights. Great traditional blues tune with a kicking drum track. Can't get enough of this one.
3. Come on In (live) - R.L. Burnside: If you know Burnside you know what it's all about -- drinking, chaos, broken glass.
4. She asked me so I told Her - T-Model Ford: Great straight-forward blues here. So thick you could kill someone if you dropped it on their head.
5. My baby's Gone - Robert Belfour: Late night driving stuff. Your girl just leave you boys? Blast this on go whistlin' past the graveyard.
6. Sleepwalkin' - Tom Verlaine: Post-drinking song. Great blues instrumental.
7. Everything is Broken - R.L. Burnside: Being a Bob Dylan fan I was very interested in hearing R.L.'s take on this song from The Bobness' album Oh Mercy. My conclusion -- this is the way the song is meant to be. Too bad they couldn't have gotten Bob and R.L. to do it together.
8. Junior's Place - Junior Kimbrough: Hit-in-the-veins Blues here. Not the most outstanding track, but it fits in well anyways.
9. Long Way Home - Tom Waits: Finally. That great growler of a man singing a rather catchy tune. A soundtrack highlight and hopefully an introductory for some that might find Tom interesting enough to find out more about him. This is another great co-written song with his wife, Kathleen Brennan.

I can't stop listening to this. Having now seen the movie, I love the soundtrack even more than I did before. It is seamlessly integrated with the film. It's haunting and rowdy. Hypnotic and heartbreaking. My five-year-old loves to dance to "I Love You." I think T-Model Ford's "She Asked Me So I Told Her" would be a great, if unorthodox, wedding song. All four tracks by the two Toms (Waits and Verlaine) are keepers, and might never have existed without this film. As a previous reviewer demonstrated, all the songs are worthy of mention, and are awesomely assembled here. Plus, the liner notes are both sweet and hilarious. Just buy it. You'll see. Better yet, buy two and give one to a friend. Share the "Big Bad Love."

I heard this cd in a music store the other day. Think it was the Junoir Kimbrough tune (Junoir's Place) that was playing. It got my attention, being that I am already familiar with his music. Then the real treat came on, "Long Way home" by Tom Waits. I knew then and there I had to buy it. Not one cent was wasted pruchasing this great CD. Not one note is wasted in this great collection of music. Press play and let it roll to the end, then press play again. You won't be disappointed.

It was a great surprise to find this CD at the store the other day. If you like the "real country blues", not the slick, overproduced Chicago stuff, then this is for you. The Fat Possom folks, Kimbrough, R.L., etc. are great. Interesting to have Tom Waits, Tom Verlaine and Steve Earle on this too. They do a great job too. Verlaine is moody and mystical and just great on the two instramentals.I dont know if the movie will be worth anything, but the sound track is certainly worth the price. Buy this and you will not be dissapointed if you are a blues fan, or a fan of real music.You may even want to do a little work and find out more about the great Jr. Kimbrough, R. L.Burnside, Asier Payton, or any of the other non-mainstream blues greats featured here. Well worth the effort.

One of my biggest pet peeves with motion picture soundtracks is the fact that there is never enough original music on it to capture the moods and themes of the movies particular plot and the characters personalities. The soundtrack to Big Bad Love however is a refreshing change. With original songs from the legendary Tom Waits, Tom Verlaine & Steve Earle this soundtrack easily makes me think of the southern back woods and how simplistic life should be.
You don't have to be a blues aficionado to appreciate the fluidity of this album and the craftsmanship of the songs these artists create. By combining different elements of the blues, whether it's Mr. Waits signature raspy voice or R.L. Burnside's storytelling this soundtrack will make road trippin all the worth while. The biggest surprise however is the collaboration of Tom Verlaine and the Kronos Quartet. The soupy feel it evokes makes the listener's mind wander and feel more at ease.

This is what the blues is about. A combination of old and new voices contribute to a perfectly pitched record. I came to this through Tom Waits. I love his music and wanted to hear these two tracks. I thought I might pull them off and move on. Now I can't imagine braking up the beautiful dynamic the whole record holds. I always liked R.L. Burnside. Now I love him. R.L., Junior, Asie, T-Model Ford, the Toms all fit together like they were all born in the same southern town. This soundtrack will definately get passed on by word of my mouth to my friends and co-workers.
