5.0 out of 5 stars Blinding soundtrack from Cave & co!
This bootlegging soundtrack from the versatile Nick Cave offers even more scope for experimentation across genres including country and bluegrass creating a panoramic soundscape. From the usual rip rollicking Cave and Ellis compositions to the sultry sound of Emmylou Harris, who has never sounded more wistful and alluring. There is a cover of White Light by Ralph Stanley...

4.0 out of 5 stars Strong soundtrack for a strong movie, 19 Feb 2013

This review is from: Lawless (Audio CD)
I saw "Lawless" in the theatres last year and really liked that movie a lot. Never bothered to pick up the soundtrack, until now.

"Lawless: Original Soundtrack" (14 tracks; 42 min.) has Nick Cave's fingers all over it (he was credited as both the movie's co-writer and of course the music scorer, the latter along with Warren Ellis, of the "Bad Seeds"). "The Bootleggers" (the movie's houseband) starts off strong with "Fire and Brimstone" and "Burnin' Hell" before giving way to an amazing a cappella "Sure 'Nuff 'N Yes I Do" by the legendary Ralph Stanley. Then we get into the middle section in which the equally lengendary by now Emmylou Harris is featured (as the lead or co-lead vocalist) in 5 of the next songs, to great effect. The one song in the middle she is not on is a hilarious "White Light/White Heat" cover by the Bootleggers. That same song is again covered, completely differently but equally great, by Ralph Stanley, who later on also brings another version of the earlier "Fire and Brimstone". Nick Cave and Warren Ellis close things out with a nice "End Crawl" instrumental. After that, there is a 'bonus' track from Willie Nelson ("Midnight Run"), why, I don't know.

In all, this is a great collection of Americana music. Comparisons have been made with the "O Brother Where Are Thou" soundtrack, and in particular, why that one became a supersmash hit, and "Lawless" has not. Who knows? and who cares? The music business is fickle and success is never predicatble. It doesn't take away from the enjoyment of this soundtrack. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

5.0 out of 5 stars A uniquely "moody" collection of bluegrass by some top/classic stars, 12 Feb 2013

Lawless is an excellent movie made all the better by this first class soundtrack, which captures the mood, aggression, action and passion in the storyline brilliantly. Performed by and "ensemble" cast including Cave, Emmylou Harris and Lanegan; and with some "trademark performances" by Ralph Stanley.

This soundtrack provides a rich variety of bluegrass/folk-country which is could be an excellent "introductory sampler" for someone newly discovering these genre.
