Editorial Reviews

Review

"A great film by two American masters, the Coens have taken a real time and place and freely made it their own, drawing on actual persons and events for inspiration, but binding themselves only to their own bountiful imaginations. The result is playful and evocative. There is also the joy of the music itself, exquisitely arranged by T Bone Burnett and sung live on set by the actors themselves. The soundtrack is stupendous." --Variety

"Joel and Ethan Coen's wonderful new film is the kind of great work that cuts right through the noise." --The New York Times

"Audiences just heard a clean, hard crack: the Coen brothers hit one out of the park. The musical interludes are stunning." --The Guardian

Product Description

Nonesuch Records releases the soundtrack to "Inside Llewyn Davis. " Written and directed by Academy Award winners Joel and Ethan Coen and produced by Scott Rudin and Joel and Ethan Coen, the film stars Oscar Isaac, Carey Mulligan, John Goodman, Garrett Hedlund, and Justin Timberlake. T Bone Burnett, Joel Coen, and Ethan Coen produced the soundtrack, with Marcus Mumford as associate producer. The album includes 12 new recordings made especially for the film and soundtrack plus an existing recording by Dave Van Ronk. Also featured is a never-before-released version of Bob Dylan performing his song "Farewell, " which was recorded during the sessions for his album The Times They Are A-Changin' and is available exclusively on this soundtrack.

"Inside Llewyn Davis" is the Coen brothers' fourth collaboration with the Grammy and Academy Award-winning Burnett; his soundtrack to their film "O Brother, Where Art Thou? " won five Grammy Awards, including Album of the Year and Producer of the Year. "Inside Llewyn Davis" won the Grand Prix at the Cannes International Film Festival.

"Inside Llewyn Davis" follows a week in the life of a young folk singer as he navigates the Greenwich Village folk scene of 1961. Llewyn Davis (Oscar Isaac) is at a crossroads. Guitar in tow, huddled against the unforgiving New York winter, he is struggling to make it as a musician against seemingly insurmountable obstacles some of them of his own making. Living at the mercy of both friends and strangers, scaring up what work he can find, Davis' misadventures take him from the basket houses of the Village to an empty Chicago club on an odyssey to audition for music mogul Bud Grossman and back again. Brimming with music performed by Isaac and Justin Timberlake and Carey Mulligan, as well as Marcus Mumford and Punch Brothers, "Inside Llewyn Davis" in the tradition of "O Brother, Where Art Thou?" is infused with the transportive sound of another time and place.

Important note: Amazon groups both the CD AND vinyl reviews together. When reading a review take note of the format being reviewed. Now on with my review:

Though listed on the package as the "Soundtrack" for this new Coen brothers film (due 12/20/13), which was "inspired by" the life of folk music icon Dave Van Ronk, I'm virtually sure that these are not the the same recordings you will hear in the film. I did have a chance to see the film in a preview and a Q&A with the film's star Oscar Isaac (but reviews are embargoed until release date) and have read the press notes. The Coens wanted the actors, who do their own singing and playing in the film, to be used to the music, so Music Producer T-Bone Burnett made studio recordings first and then the actors performed live, again, during the filming. But that doesn't affect the review of the CD, it just clarifies some things.

Like their previous film "O Brother Where Art Thou", the Coens incorporate traditional music in the film, but this time there are more complete numbers. The opening cut on the CD "Hang Me, Hang Me" fills the first three minutes of the film, and most of the songs on the CD are performed complete. The next-to-the-last track - a previously unissued version of "Farewell" by Bob Dylan is only excerpted in the film and the closer, Van Ronk's version of "Green Green Rocky Road" is played over the closing credits.

The Coens state that they did not do research into Van Ronk's life and did not want Isaac to either look or sound like DVR. While the film will first attract those over 60 who remember the "folk revival", the CD is aimed at a younger audience with Justin Timberlake playing the role of "Jim", who has a singing partner Jean (Carey Mulligan).

5.0 out of 5 stars Heartbreaking January 2, 2014
Format:MP3 Music
I'm fairly young and the extent of the folk music I've heard and loved is all Dylan. But watching the movie, right from the first three minutes I was knocked back into my seat. It's sad music, and not just because the movie is a bit of a downer. After I left the theatre with the credits rolling on a Dave Van Ronk original, I gave all the dollar bills I had to the bums on Sunset blvd.

This music makes me feel something so powerfully, like my heart's on a string and the songs tug at it. Its music that has to be heard. I absolutely had to get the soundtrack, and I have to get the vinyl version. It needs that ritual.

5.0 out of 5 stars very good music December 12, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
As a child of the 60's, I was amazed at the feel. The music really is of the era. And while no-one sings like van Ronk, Isaac does a very good job of using his own voice, and his guitar was spot on. Made me dig out all my old van Ronk records.

I am an old folk music fan, and this album presents a fresh take on some old favorites, as well as some I never heard before. The voices and arrangements are delightful. I can hardly wait for the film's release

5.0 out of 5 stars More than Nostalgia November 22, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
It's great to see the "no frills" energy of the 60's folk scene reproduced so faithfully. I was expecting only nostalgia but was happy to hear a new vitality in these songs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really excellent November 8, 2013
By L.
Format:Vinyl|Verified Purchase
I'd highly recommend this soundtrack, both as a stand-alone record, and as a companion to the film. Oscar Isaac is absolutely captivating as Llewyn Davis, and the choice of songs have a very personal meaning, when coupled with the film. The other artists who appear on the record are equally solid, giving us a fictional glimpse at the folk scene. The only song I itch to pass over is Please Mr. Kennedy, but the urge makes a lot of sense given the context of the song in the film.
I will add that the vinyl indeed does not come with the digital download, but as has been commented, this isn't something that brings down the quality of the album. The vinyl is also missing the song The Roving Gambler, no doubt cut for time, but is still excellent.

3.0 out of 5 stars Variable March 7, 2014
By theta
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Actually this is NOT the "original soundtrack recording", which is to say that, with two or three exceptions, these are not the performances that occur in the film. There's probably some technical reason for this (something to do with wanting the film's to be "live"), but the performances here generally don't try to approximate the performances in the film either. Most obviously, the arrangements are different. Violins and banjos and extra guitars have been added, and the affecting a capella final verse of "The Death of Queen Jane" is here accompanied and preceded by an instrumental solo. This means to me that we can't excuse certain bland ("Ten Thousand Miles", "The Last Thing on My Mind") or odd ("The Auld Triangle") tracks on the grounds that the blandness or oddness is intentionally to serve the dramatic or comedic purposes of the film.

The exceptions include Dave Van Ronk's rendition of "Green, Green Rocky Road", played over the film's credits (I prefer actor Oscar Isaac's attempt to imitate Van Ronk's rendition, also included), Bob Dylan's "Farewell" (by far the best track here), and possibly "Please Mr. Kennedy" (I couldn't tell for sure). "Please Mr. Kennedy" is based on a real novelty song also called "Please Mr. Kennedy", but whereas the real "Please Mr. Kennedy" had to do with the cold war, the less amusing "Please Mr. Kennedy" we have here is anachronistically (and rather illogically) about manned spaceflight (still unknown to the public in February of 1961). It affords a small joke in the film, but has virtually no actual musical value. For some reason the Coen brothers desired to purge the film of politics completely (a tactic that inevitably results in great distortion, considering that the "folk revival" was to a significant extent a political movement).
