Editorial Reviews

"Nebraska" is the new film by acclaimed director Alexander Payne ("The Descendants," "Sideways") starring Bruce Dern and Will Forte. After receiving a sweepstakes letter in the mail, a cantankerous father thinks he's struck it rich, and wrangles his son into taking a road trip to claim the fortune. This classic film features an amazing soundtrack that breathes Americana. With a classic guitar driven score composed by Mark Orton that features elements of jazz, alt country and bluegrass, the music is a character in itself in the film. The score is supported by instrumental tracks by Tin Hat Trio.

Format:MP3 Music
Just this past weekend I saw "Nebraska" in the theatre and I made a mental note to myself to check out the soundtrack at some point, as I really enjoyed the music and it plays prominently in the movie.

"Music from the Motion Picture Nebraska" (18 tracks; 48 min.) brings the instrumental score as composed by Mark Orton, he of Tin Hat (Trio). While most tracks are credited as performed by Orton, there are several that are credited to Tin Hat Trio, and one track is credited to Ron Burger, another founding member of Tin Hat Trio. As the soundtrack opens, we hear "Their Pie", mostly just guitar and accordion, but containing the immediately recognizable leitmotiv, and we'll hear that melody (or a variation of it) pop up a number of times. Another version of this song, called the Hawthorne version (named after the fictional Nebraska town where the main characters meet) appears near the very end of the album. Then comes "New West", one of three from Tin Hat Trio, the original line-up of which reformed for these songs (Tin Hat has remained active in other configurations). Frankly, the other 2 from them, "Bill" and "Night of the Skeptic", sound far more like classic Tin Hat Trio. Even when the movie becomes at times confrontational, such as in "The Ambush", the music remains sparse, as if it is having an out-of-body experience, mocking/feeling pity for the situation at hand. "The Old House" is an achingly beautiful solo piano piece. At the very end, Orton plays a cover of Tom Jones' "Green Green Grass of Home", which is sung karaoke in a dinner scene of the movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nebraska May 5, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
When I first heard it I fell in love with it. I immediately related to the melancholy and hauntingly beautiful
music which whisked me away to another place...don't know where, but love being there and I listen again
and again to go back there. Deeply moved and absorbed by it from the first to last cut.
Hope Mark Orton, Tin Hat, and all other musicians on this album will do more (Please !)--I'll be looking for them.

5.0 out of 5 stars New Grass movie sound track is a hit June 10, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Nebraska's sound track helped set the tone and mood of the movie. This beautiful and insightful CD reminds one of the Heartland Appalachian Anthology with Joshua Bell, Sam Bush, Bela Fleck and Yo-Yo Ma etc. and their interweaving of melodies. The stark landscapes in the movie were embellished by the haunting and masterfully scored sound track. Mark Orton et. al. have given us a wonderful compilation that is a great listen. Wonderful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great movie.
Great movies with different small stories within the one. Bruce Dern is exceptional in the role. I would recommend it.

See the movie first and this soundtrack will have more of an impact. Lovely melodies and their variations. Flugelhorn in a mariachi arrangement is a nice twist. Read more

It is kind of a melancholy CD, but I like it. It is a nice change from talk radio and screaming words at you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Weirdly Comforting Earworm of an Album
I really enjoyed the movie, and the soundtrack just embedded itself as an earworm for days afterwards.

I can't explain it, but I find this album soothing and comforting. Read more
