Editorial Reviews

Original soundtrack to the critically acclaimed thriller that has kept audiences and critics on the edge of their seats, and winner of the 2010 Sundance Festival Grand Prize. Among the highlights are the old time sounds of the Ozarks translated into the 21st century by stellar vocalist Marideth Sisco. Her Ronnie Gilbert (of the Weavers) inspired vocals are absolute joy and she's an expert storyteller of the Ozarks region. Although these musicians are not known nationally (yet), this soundtrack should & will draw attention to these regional heroes: Dennis Crider, an expert Western Swing guitar picker; Missouri bluegrass maverick Bo Brown; claw hammer banjo picker Van Colbert; guitarist and songwriter Rick Reding; and Missouri Ozarks fiddle master Billy Ward (to name but a few) that will delight fans of No Depression era and classic Americana music. For those seeking more contemporary music flavors, one could do no better than Dickon Hinchliffe - a founding member of the seminal English band Tindersticks.

After I saw the movie "Winter's Bone", the first thing I did was to order this soundtrack. I'm not the world's biggest country music fan, but I'm the world's biggest fan of this album and Marideth Sisco and the Blackberry Winter band. There are other bands and other singers on the album that I was introduced to for the first time, and they are now favorites, too. The extraordinary voices and instrumentals are haunting and meaningful, especially after seeing the movie. There are old tunes and new ones, and Marideth starts the first track with "The Missouri Waltz" and ends the album with a wonderful and beautifully rousing song, "Angel Band." John Hawkes, who played Teardrop in the movie, composed "Bred and Buttered" and Dickon Hinchliffe composed the original score cues and also the instrumental "Hardscrabble Elegy." It's a wonderful album that you have to have if you love the movie or if you love Missouri.

In WINTER'S BONE, the young people play today's country and album-oriented rock. The old, traditional tunes are performed primarily by and for the elders of the community as a nostalgic lament for days gone by when residents of the Ozark hill country may not have been living high on the hog, but were content, faith-based, independent, self-sufficient and could earn an honest living without corporate fat cats meddling in their local economies; and where 'white lightning was still the greatest thrill of all' (to quote Merle Haggard). I was born in southwest Iowa in the late 40s. In WINTER'S BONE, seeing and hearing Meredeth Sisco sing the 'Missouri Waltz' a capella resurrected sweet memories of my early childhood when Mom sang this song to me at bedtime. Today, I live in northwest Arkansas (which is also Ozarks) and take occasional trips into backwoods territory. I love the people I encounter there. Tough as a spiny cactus on the outside but, for the most part, tender and sweet on the inside. As for WINTER'S BONE, this simple, suspenseful but also heartwarming motion picture is a fairly accurate portrayal of the hill folk but WINTER'S BONE is also a profound social commentary on our nation's technologically-advanced but morally-and-spiritually challenged character, not just in the Ozarks but in urban areas as well. I've viewed the movie four times now... and it continues to haunt me.

When I saw the film "Winter's Bone" I was very moved by the story, and the music added to the atmosphere, although only short extracts from each tune were played. So I was delighted to purchase the CD which has enabled me to hear each wonderful tune in its entirety.

I loved this movie and the book (which I own both) this soundtrack was the next step this is very bluegrass Missouri style it takes one back to the time when real people played music from the heart and lyrics were about things that matter such as kinfolk good times sad times love and god. A very easy listening and enjoyable disc very soothing and full of talented people.
Every time I play it different scenes from the movie appear in my head.

Heck I start my mornings with this on my way to work and usually I listen to metal. now I have music for the beast and the inner child.

my favorites are the white river music company songs of out of sight and missing you. Meredith sisco is such a fantastic singer and john hawkes bred and buttered.

Thank goodness there are more alternatives for music than the usual corporate booty shaking crap

We purchased this CD after seeing the film. We also bought the book. We listen to the CD a lot and the words haunt us, take us back to the story, time and time again. We love the beauty of the music, it haunts us, and reminds as of the film's setting.

I'm not certain why this film, its stellar performances or sublime musical score weren't taken more seriously.

At very least, the album is a showcase for the beautiful, expressive voice of Marideth Sisco. If her musicality and feeling don't impact bluegrass lovers, or folk music enthusiasts, then I've missed something. From staples such as "Missouri Waltz," "High on the Mountain" and "Angel Band," to lesser known traditionals, this recording is a balm to those who seek peace, quiet and superb performances of traditional music. For those who have seen this gorgeous, understated film, it's a must-have. I'm pleased that the producers omitted swatches of transitional material. In doing so, they have created a self-contained album, even for those who have not seen the film.

For some reason, so many of us have become consumers of junk, rejecting the most beautiful facets of who we are as a culture and a people. I've passed the point at which I question why. This album is tuneful, wistful and well-recorded. For those who prefer other forms of music, I understand; but for those who love roots, country, folk or bluegrass, this collection is a must.

Five stars. A perfect score.
