One of the best soundtracks of all-time.,
By A Customer
This review is from: O Brother, Where Art Thou? (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.
