Product Description

CD

Amazon.com

Writer-director John Sayles's complex, adult mystery delves deeply into borders at myriad levels, a theme echoed beautifully in this collection of country, blues, norteño, R&B, and folk songs that appear as source cues in the film. Sayles's hand in picking them is evident in terms of both quality and thematic resonance: in a telling gesture, Ivory Joe Hunter's mournful "Since I Met You Baby" is answered with a Spanish cover version, created for the film, featuring Freddie Fender. Whether reinforcing the film's cultural milieu or underlining its emotions, strong performances from Lucinda Williams, legendary Mexican songstress Lydia Mendoza, Little Willie John, Little Walter, and Conjunto Bernal give Lone Star heft far beyond most cinematic song compilations. --Sam Sutherland

Like the film itself, the soundtrack to "Lone Star" is complex and thought-provoking. It's a good introduction to a variety of musical genres and plays well. I would have liked the album better without the music composed for the film; it's distracting and takes away from the melodic, melancholy works by Lydia Mendoza, Ivory Joe Hunter, and even Freddie Fender that so evoke the pensiveness of the movie. (I'm a little surprised that a Tejano movie soundtrack didn't have Flaco Jimenez on it, though.) Still, most of the songs are great. It's one of the few movie soundtracks I am glad I own.

If you are like me, you buy a soundtrack because the music really stood out in the movie, and, usually, you enjoyed the movie, so the music brings back a little of that good memory. John Sayles used the music in his movie as a transition between scenes and it was very effective. The traditional music is excellent. The reason for my 2 star review is the fact that the production quality on the CD is extremely bad. Granted, most of the songs were probably somewhat obscure and the original media may not have been top quality to begin with, but from the first song you really hear a hiss in your speaker like you are playing a tape recorded to another tape. This CD really needed some digital enhancement. Don't get me wrong, the music is excellent, but if you are one of those people who buys a CD for the reason that it is supposed to sound better than a tape, then, in this case, you would be just as well off purchasing the cassette and saving a few dollars.

This soundtrack really evokes the movie's many moods very well. Renewed my interest in Tejano music as well as traditional Mexican music!

It's nice to see studios being thoughtful about the soundtracks they use for movies. It probably started with Lucas and American Graffiti but I digress. The soundtrack for Lone Star holds up very well on it's own, which many other soundtracks cannot claim. With a wide variety of musical styles and tones it reflects the area of the country and the cultures depicted in the movie. An excellent investment :)

Forget this description. Watch the movie and fall in love with (or to) the music. Not sure whether the English or Spanish version of "Since I Met You Baby" was better. Didn't realize one of the background songs was Lucinda Williams until I heard it on the Soundtrack---a happy surprise!
