5.0 out of 5 stars Diverse selection of old-time music 1 July 2005
By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
The music here, like the film it provides the soundtrack for, is presumably intended to take us back to the thirties. Several songs from that era are featured along with traditional material that would have been popular then. Recorded mainly with state-of-the-art technology (except for some old recordings that are included and re-mastered), the sound quality is far superior to anything available in the thirties. Several different types of music can be found here - blues, gospel, country and folk - mainly performed by contemporary artists with a deep respect for tradition. I'll just pick out some of them although there are many excellent songs here.
Even Alison Krauss sticks firmly with tradition here - she often brings contemporary influences into her music these days but not here. Alison can be heard here on Down to the river to pray (as a solo singer), I'll fly away (providing harmony vocals for lead singer Gillian Welch) and Didn't leave nobody but the baby (joining Gillian and Emmylou in three-part harmony).
The inclusion of two Carter Stanley songs on a soundtrack such as this is predictable but welcome, with the Whites performing a superb version of the oft-recorded Keep on the sunny side, while the Peasall children (Hannah singing lead with Sarah and Leah providing harmony vocals) are in great form on In the highways. Children's recordings rarely impress me but this track does.
One song here that surprised me (though perhaps it shouldn't have) is Big rock candy mountain. It can be found on plenty of albums of children's songs, when it is invariably presented as an up-tempo song that children can (if they wish) sing along to.

5.0 out of 5 stars Traditional country music at its best! 29 April 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The Soggy Bottom Boys, Allison Krauss, Emmylou Harris, Ralph Stanley, and the others capture the true spirit and essence of the traditional music that I grew up listening to. The sweet harmonies and just down right good pickin' make this CD a classic. I listen to it every day while I'm on the computer. Too bad my local station won't play any of the songs on the air! The full version, with complete instrumentation, of "I am a Man of Constant Sorrow" is the best tradional song that I've ever heard. Combined with the great performances of George Clooney, John Turturro, and Tim Blake Nelson in the movie, this CD is so well suited to the script and is uplifting, even the serious tunes:"I Am Weary" and "O Death." I purchased an extra CD just in case something were to happen to my original.

5.0 out of 5 stars a lovely mix of traditional music 4 Nov 2003
Format:Audio CD
Performed by some of today's best singers, this multi-Grammy Award winner is a marvelous addition to any country/folk music collection. Some of these artists are at the top of their field, but some will be "discoveries" for most of us, like the beautiful rendition of "Hard Time Killing Floor Blues" by Chris Thomas King, a versatile young man who is versed in many styles, and here sings in the old blues tradition and does it brilliantly.
The highlights for me are: The legendary Ralph Stanley, with his plaintive acappella chant of "O Death", which carries with it all the pain and soul of Appalachia, and the purity of "I Am a Man of Constant Sorrow" by the Soggy Bottom Boys, who consist of Union Station member Dan Tyminsky on lead vocals and guitar, backed by Harley Allen and Pat Enright. For anyone who likes traditional music, you can't get any better than this.
Another acappella gem is "Didn't Leave Nobody but the Baby", with Emmylou Harris, Alison Krauss, and Gillian Welch harmonizing like an angels from another era. Everything on this disc recalls days gone by; there is a refreshing simplicity, and a lot of the songs are filled with faith.
There is exquisite musicianship on this CD, and it is a nice long one at 60'34 minutes. The booklet insert is something I appreciate too; it is a collage of yellowed stained paper on peeling walls, with a terrific layout, and as it says on one of its pages, "Old-Time Music Is Very Much Alive".

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant: Complements the film perfectly 26 Sep 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is the best use of music in a a film since 'Rushmore'. I have seen the film twice: the second time was simply to listen to the music again. There are so many different types of Southern music here is difficult to characterise it in a few words. It ranges from blue-grass and country, to spirituals (both white and black). If you loved Michelle Shocked's 'Arkansas Traveller' then this is a record for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars the music makes the film 29 Oct 2001
Format:Audio CD
This soundtrack is one of the best i've heard in a long long time, especially 'I am a man of constant sorrow', which makes me smile every time I hear it. Everyone should have at least one listen to this CD, because after one listen, you want to hear it again and again. Does great things for country and blues.

I very much enjoyed the film but MAN is that fine music. Go to the film if only to hear it. If you have ANY inclination to gospel, country, folk, or any good voice-driven music, you should appreciate this.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best soundtracks of all-time. 19 Sep 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
"O Brother Where Art Thou" makes brilliant use of period music (Depression-era Americana) to punctuate and intensify its story. A rarity, however, the soundtrack is perfectly able to stand on its own as a compilation of songs with a genuinely historic feel which can sooth the soul (Down In the River) or rouse the spirit (I Am a Man). I would recommend it to anyone--but especially to those who can appreciate good bluegrass & gospel.
