5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome music! June 3, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I listened to the preview songs once and promptly downloaded the MP3 version to my computer. I'm on my third non-stop listen and it just gets better and better! If you like Folk, Bluegrass, Mountain or Celtic music, you won't be disappointed. I didn't know Kevin Costner possessed such magnificent musical abilities! The song "I Know These Hills" is superbly sung by Sara Beck and it sends chills up and down my spine every time I hear it. Buy the CD or download the MP3 version and see if it doesn't have the same effect on you...

5.0 out of 5 stars Music From and Inspired by Hatfields & McCoys June 2, 2012
By tml9170
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
5 Star CD! Let me start out by saying, only two songs are actually from the movie. The other songs are or were inspired by the movie. kevin costner and Sara beck do an excellent job singing and bringing you back in time and thinking about the way it was in singing back in the day. The songs are not hillbilly bluegrass or junk music. They are wonderful folk music to be listened to and contemplated by anyone. Maybe on your ipod down by the river or sitting under an oak tree in your back yard or just in your living room. Whatever makes you just sit and listen and ponder the words and music. I've lived in the mountains of Va for over 50 years and can honestly say country folk can be some of the finest folks you could ever meet or want to meet. Listen to the music and remember the times they fought and the times they fought just to live. The music will move you to remember.......

5.0 out of 5 stars Great music for an amazing show May 27, 2012

I enjoyed the deep bluegrass and country tunes that this album gave. It is a true representation of the music you heard during the History Channel movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars TERRIFIC COMPANION ALBUM TO "HATFIELDS & McCOYS!" June 5, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Not to be confused with the Hatfields & McCoys (Soundtrack from the Mini Series), this is a companion album of music from and (mostly) inspired by the miniseries, as written and performed by Kevin Costner and members of his band Modern West. But that does not mean it is a bad album. On the contrary, it is terrific in its own right! The majority of the music is rooted in the sounds of Appalachia, making it an authentic-sounding companion album to the series. Of the nineteen tracks, nine are instrumental pieces, played mostly on instruments such as guitar, violin, banjo and dobro. All of these pieces are fantastic! As for the ten main songs, they are mostly terrific as well. Highlights include "How Deep the Water Runs," "I Know These Hills," "Oh, Malley-Mae," "Peace in the Valley," and "Devil's A Long Way from Home." The only drawback to this album is the strange-sounding and poorly sung "I Look to No One." Despite this one questionable song, this is a terrific album that fans of the traditional Appalachia sound will definitely want to own.

Grade: A-

5.0 out of 5 stars haunting, evocative, brilliant June 3, 2012
Format:Audio CD
The project is awesome - buy it! This music captures the spirit of the Hatfields & McCoys as depicted on History Channel. The show was absolutely riveting. And is it only me, or does Kevin Costner look like he was born to ride a horse and carry a rifle? The whole mini-series was perfectly cast. The story was brilliantly told. The soundtrack, also brilliant.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this CD! February 10, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I absolutely love this CD. I'm not a country/bluegrass/folk music lover at all but I really like this CD. There's more instrumental tracks than I expected, but they are really pretty. It's a nice balance between instrumental and voice. My favorite two tracks are #4 and #15. I highly recommend this CD!!

4.0 out of 5 stars "A Feud is a Feud" November 30, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is music from, or inspired by, the 3-part miniseries shown by the History Channel back in May of 2012. A very well made show depicting an irrational feud between two Kentucky - West Virginia families that lasted 25 years and accounted for a dozen deaths. It brutally depicts the calamity fueled by human ignorance and the stubborn persistence to continue what never should have begun.

If you liked that show I would think that you would enjoy this album. I never realized till I purchased this that back in 2007 Kevin Costner had started his own band... "Modern West". He does a fine job on the track "How deep the water runs". Sara Beck sounds incredible on "I know these hills". That is Costner's daughter Lily performing "OH, Malley-Mae". Other performers include Park Chisolm, Teddy Morgan, John Debney, and John Coinman.

There is much to like here, and if you find yourself enjoying it and wanting more you may want to check out some Alison Krauss + Union Station, or maybe the soundtrack from "O Brother, Where Are Thou?" and....aw heck, throw "Barton Hollow" by the Civil Wars on the phonograph.

Enjoy!
