The songs for Dead Man Walking not only accompany the movie, they also haunt it. All the tracks are meaningful and well worth the listen but the highlights of the album are the tracks "The Face of Love" and "The Long Road" by Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and Eddie Vedder which alone are worth the purchase of the entire album. I remember some radio DJ saying that it was impossible to play "The Long Road" on radio because no dj could skillfully follow up a song that powerful with the usual radio airplay. Whether you've seen the movie or not, pick up this soundtrack. It's really a rare collection of superb music.

The Dead Man Walking Soundtrack is piled to the rafters with talent: Bruce Springsteen, Lyle Lovett, Michelle Shocked, Eddie Vedder (from Pearl Jam), etc...This album is so emotionally powerful at times that I will listen to some songs over and over (i.e. Ellis Unit One or Promises by Lyle Lovett). Johnny Cash's tune is one of the weaker songs on the album (I say this as a Johnny Cash fan). Cash covers Nick Cave's song "The Mercy Seat" on his Solitary Man album--a song about a man heading for the chair--which is worth checking out. Steve Earle has been involved in anti-death penelty work for years. For those of you interested, you can check out "Billy Austin" on the Hard Way and "Over Yonder (Jonathan's Song)" on transcendental blues. If you like Springsteen's title track, you will love his album Ghost of Tom Joad. The rest of the album is very strong. I applaud the decision of the "powers that be" that two albums were put out for this movie: this soundtrack, and the background score. Good music with a challenging message.

A collection of simple emotional songs, unforgettable for those who saw the movie, and also for those who did not. The two titles from Eddie Vedder & Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan are extraordinary.

This soundtrack is so under-rated, and I don't understand why. I know now it's older, and my friends back when I had bought in the 90's didn't like it either. Strange.... the music on here featuring Eddie Vedder and Bruce Springsteen for example, is very melodic and.... yes okay, it's different. Give it a go..... you might like it.

Along with the soundtrack from Julian Schnabel's Basquiat, Dead Man Walking's album stands out as pivotal in my musichood, as both were from films I loved and introduced me to artists that I have since followed and admired. In that way the medium of the soundtrack is vital, as it works best when it provides a variety of voices and styles to make a pastiche that evokes and supports the story of the film.
While Basquiat captures the early 80's of New York, the New Wave, Hip Hop and progressive rock of the time and it's themes, Dead Man Walking captures the Americana of the story; rural and working class culture and paralysis, the cycles of violence and cruelty of the justice system, the power of devotion and faith and the transcendance of love and forgiveness-no matter the crime. After all few can evoke the struggles and triumphs of the common man and woman better than Johnny Cash, Bruce Springsteen, Lyle Lovett and Steve Earle. Before I saw this film and acquired the album I didn't know who Steve Earle was, and if nothing else, this disc will always stand out for that. There is much beauty here, particularly Eddie Vedder and Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan's songs, and Michelle Shocked's elegant The Quality of Mercy-channeling Shakespeare himself.
A great album.

Truth is I was so transfixed by the visuals that the soundtrack to the movie didn't enter my consciousness. It was the superlative Vedder/Nasrat Fateh Ali Khan duets on radio that drew me to this fabulous compilation. Truth is also that while knowing of Pearl Jam, I'd never given Eddie more than glancing attention. Ali Khan I'd heard since the mid 1980s. Their singing on this CD is compelling. Then there was the challenge set for the song champs by Tim Robbins to write their impressions from a roughcut of the film. The dividends aren't quite so great. Springsteen, Michelle Shocked, Susan Vega, Mary Chapin Carpenter, and my favourite here, Lyle Lovett, all returned wonderful material. Lovett's pure diction & phrasing ensures the enunciating of failed promises,and failed words, cuts deep. Springsteen sets the mood with a fairly literal condensing of the film's narrative. I consider it stronger than anything on,'Tom Joad'. And as Springsteen's voice assembles Sean Penn's screen face for me, so does Carpenter's erect Susan Saradons'. The star cast emerge collectively with absorbing material, though none quite match Vedder(who later at Bob Dylan's CBS bash, stole the show with 'Masters of War)and Ali Khans'.

Given that a soundtrack usually only has just one or two tracks that you really want, and this one features an entire collection of amazing songs that are all totally worth owning, that would make this the best soundtrack ever I think!

And to tell you the truth - I haven't actually seen the movie! I picked this CD up at the 2nd hand shop over the road from my house for $2 on a whim, cos I thought the 2 Eddie Vedder with Ali Khan tracks could be interesting.

And what a fantastic buy! Two shiny New Zealand dollars !? That's like just one of your US dollars! Not only are those 2 tracks totally spellbinding, everything else here is of superb quality. It's such a varied release, but with the Dead Man Walking story to thread it all together it becomes a deep and soulful collection.

I love it! To think that even though this is nearly 20 years old and I can still listen to it for the first time 2 days ago and discover a powerful, very relevant bunch of songs speaks volumes.

So I should probably go watch the movie now. 5 STARS.
