Editorial Reviews

"You never know how much you need music until you don't have it." -Damien Echols, Life After Death

West of Memphis: Voices for Justice is music from and inspired by West of Memphis, the documentary film written and directed by Academy Award nominated filmmaker, Amy Berg and produced by Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh (the Lord of the Rings triology), Damien Echols and Lorri Davis. West of Memphis tells the untold story behind an extraordinary and desperate fight to bring the truth to light; a fight to stop the State of Arkansas from killing an innocent man.

The avalanche of emotions experienced after seeing West Of Memphis or learning of the West Memphis 3 case quickly leads to perhaps the most primal impulse of all: "Act. Do something. Do anything."

It's in this spirit that West of Memphis: Voices For Justice has been created. In every instance, the artists involved have made the decision about which song they felt reflected their personal feelings about the case. There's a connection between the music and the man remaining at its center, Damien Echols.

Longtime personal supporters, Henry Rollins and Johnny Depp each lend their voices to read excerpts from Damien Echols' letters from death row recited over the breathtaking Nick Cave / Warren Ellis score featured in the film.

Natalie Maines of the Dixie Chicks, chose to include a hauntingly beautiful cover of Pink Floyd's "Mother." "Satellite" by Eddie Vedder was written for Lorri Davis, Damien Echols' wife, as part of a collection of songs Eddie recorded for the couple in 2000.

Artists such as Lucinda Williams, Band of Horses, Patti Smith, Citizen Cope, Tonto's Giant Nuts featuring Johnny Depp and others each have particular stories behind the songs that represent them on this collection.

Your purchase of this album will in part directly benefit the West Memphis 3.

5.0 out of 5 stars Marvelous collection of artists February 17, 2013
By firefly
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Loved the entire CD, which is always the sign of a truly memorable album. Amazing range of musical forms that has been very well fit into each other -- it trends from mood to mood and back again. It's most definitely a keeper, a CD for driving, and for simply sitting and listening to.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing March 5, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This CD is so good and really leaves you thinking about our horrifically broken justice system. Can you imagine being incarcerated for a crime you did not commit? Can you imagine being exonerated with DNA evidence and remaining locked up for crimes you did not commit? Can you imagine years passing? Your life stolen from you. I am grateful to have been made aware of the horrors that befall so many in our "free" country.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Soundtrack January 31, 2013
Format:Audio CD
This project is beautiful. I love the artists, the songs, the covers, even the recordings of the letters the three wrote on Death Row. The entire compilation is a testament to the power of art and music. Really impressed with Eddie Vedder too. I love Satellite and had no idea he was so involved in the nuts and bolts of the cause.

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Let me start with congratulations for the exquisite blend of artists and sounds that make me sing all day long! Also it was a reminder of the humiliation they suffered through their ordeal. I really hope the best for them and for their families. Keep on living! A lot of peace and love from DILIA ROMAN SAN JUAN, PUERTO RICO ;)

Good music and cause. Some good people took the time to put together a solid album. This should make it over 17 words.

2.0 out of 5 stars Big names, crap tunes.
I had high hopes for this album based on the Artist names that were listed.
Alas, I found it thoroughly underwhelming, uninspiring, empty and bland.
