The 41-minute album contains a "bonus track" - a previously unreleased song (not in the film) by Willie Nelson.
This is definitely a "crossover" album which will appeal to rock fans as well as "Americana" lovers. And, surprisingly, it is on Sony's CLASSICAL label. (Go Figure.).
I haven't seen the film - it just opened - but the Soundtrack stands on it's own.
I hope you found this review both informative and helpful.
I wonder if he has even heard of the Velvet Underground or Lou Reed?
In any case, what a phenomenal soundtrack this is. Wow. Nick Cave, Emmy Lou, Ralph Stanley??? Holy Crap.
Just fit the movie perfectly. I heard this watching the movie. Have NOT heard it without a movie to go along! :)
Lawless is a fantastic film, and I really mean that. The characters carry the film, but since it takes place during prohibition the music needed to focus on the time period and location. Hillcoat loves westerns and he infuses this film with many western archetypes even though it takes place in Virginia. The film is definitely labeled as a gangster film, but honestly I think gangster and western genres share almost all the same archetypes. You'll notice that Cave and Ellis do different incarnations of the same songs very much like they did in The Proposition. The music's tone changes as you progress, and even though it's hard to get a handle of the film through this CD you can tell that the songs do set a certain mood.Read more ›

The movie was great, but what really got me into the film was its soundtrack. Reminded me a little bit of the soundtrack from "Oh Brother, Where Art Thou" even to the point... Read morePublished 1 month ago by Tony Van Zwaren
