I love this soundtrack for two reasons. One, because I think it perfectly captures the feel of the film, from bayou blues to whimsical, epic instrumentals. Two, because even if I had not seen (and fallen in love with) this film, this music would stir my soul.

It's been on repeat in my room for weeks. I love soundtracks, and this is an excellent example of one. The songs touch on so many emotions and make me feel like I'm on a permanent adventure, even if it's one in the morning and I'm just sitting in my room working on a paper. It's stunning, with quiet lulls and brash, epic finales.

The last four songs in particular are incredible. They blend together perfectly and must be listened to in succession. Sometimes when I reach that part of the album I just sit back and try to envision the film playing in my head. This music is simply transcendental and I suspect it will remain in my library forever.

On an unrelated note, you've got to see this film. It's stunning beyond belief. I went into the theater tired and feeling a little lifeless. When the credits rolled two hours later, my jaw was hanging open in disbelief at the wonder I had just experienced and tears were running down my face and all I wanted to do was run into the streets screaming about how beautiful this life is.

Composer Dan Romer should get ready to become a lot busier because this soundtrack is outstanding. Much like the film it scores, the soundtrack is uplifting yet tinged with sadness, vast yet intimate, familiar yet fresh. Those combinations seem contradictory because they are yet they all live beautifully together in the film and in Romer's score. Do your soul a solid and see the film and get the soundtrack.

To say that I was thoroughly delighted with this soundtrack would be the a gross understatement.
They way the composers interlaced beautiful rhythmic sounds with classic Cajun compositions (like in 'The Bathtub') was breathtaking.
Hats off to everyone involved in this soundtrack and in the film.
Simply, wonderful.

How is THAT possible!!?? This music is haunting and addictive. I lived in New Orleans for 10 years and this music brought back so many memories. It is unique and one of a kind and stands totally on its own, even if you have not seen the movie (yet). Playing it on my Bose Wave CD player is an added pleasure. And the price for the MP3 by Amazon is simply fantastic. This score is fast becoming an all time favorite of mine and is highly recommended for anyone who enjoys the unusual.

Love, love, love this album. I bought it because I loved the movie and I was so swept away by the story and images that I forgot to note the music, which was very powerful but somehow slipped my notice. I listen to this often. It's uplifting and vibrant, just like the movie.

I don't know much about musical scores, but I really like this music. I like to listen to instrumental while I work and this is less intense than Inception, Hannah or Social Network (my other go-to music while working).

The best symphonic music being written today is film scores (soundtracks) and this one is at the top of my list. The variety, melodies and arrangement are as inspiring as the film. During the movie, I didn't realize how outstanding this music was because I was so caught up in Zeitlin's film. But it doesn't disappoint. If I could, I'd rate it "a million stars."

I have always been a soundtrack junkie and knew within 5 minutes of watching Beasts of the Southern Wild that I needed this album. The music is bright and fun - evocative of the bayou where the film is set. "The Bathtub" perfectly captures the joy and vivacity which is realized throughout the coarse of the film, while tracks such as "Mother Nature" exemplify the magic and whimsy that characterized the tale. The album also includes two tracks by other artists - helping to set the film in our minds. This is a great buy for anyone who loved the film or loves cajun-style and folk music.
