5.0 out of 5 stars Love it, love it, love it! 19 Mar 2007
Format:Audio CD
Had to write a mini-review as the last one was so lukewarm...surely it deserves better?

Saw this film the other day and was instantly hooked by the low-profile, slow-burn wonderfulness of it. There are a lot of films where the soundtrack is kind of incidental, but in this one, the music goes with the story like a wink and a smile.

On the CD case it says "Music to drive and live by", and it absolutely is. The overall mood conjured up is a "big picture" one - the sort where you're driving, looking at the horizon and thinking about everything important in your life. The songs hit a perfect balance of thoughtful and uplifting and somehow you feel by the end of it that everything might just turn out okay. Not sure how it manages to sidestep treacly homespun cliche, but it does.

The Ryan Adams song is wistful and wry, Same In Any Language a hummable earworm that you'll be annoying people in queues with for weeks, Long Ride Home something to listen to if you've ever not appreciated someone enough, Let It All Hang Out is an earthy, relaxed track...but it's the overall mood created by the soundtrack that just STAYS with you. More than the sum of its parts,like the film, the CD restores your faith in the way that sometimes, in spite of everything, good things can come out of awful things.

So there. That evens things out a bit.

5.0 out of 5 stars moved to buy it from watching the film tonight 19 Mar 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I don't think it matters what age you are. These songs fit the movie, fit life, not just mine, but I think anyone's. Life's a journey and never more so poignantly made than by this film. Doesn't matter if you don't get it to begin with - like the earlier reviewer said ... its a slow burn. You'll love it, I'm sure

5.0 out of 5 stars Greatest soundtrack ever (probably) 11 Sep 2013
By GTR
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've wanted this album ever since I saw the film – it's the perfect compilation 'tape'. If you enjoyed the movie then it's a wonderful Aide mémoire for certain scenes and also a great way to investigate some new artists. Not a duff track on it.

this mix of artist are perfectly suited to this feel good movie of a road trip across america.
vergeing more on the folksy/blues range of the music spectrum it is perfect for kicking back and just enjoying good music.
