An excellent, track-packed blend of grass and blues,

This review is from: O Brother, Where Art Thou? (Audio CD)
If you've seen the film then you'll know the songs on this album are wonderfully atmospheric and, at times, very moving. "I am a Man of Constant Sorrow" alone is good enough to warrant buying this album (cheap!) but there's also the sirens' "I am weary" and the breathtaking "Down In The River To Pray". I don't usually like soundtracks at all, the energy often seems to go out of them once the accompanying images are no longer there, but this one is very much an exception. I'd buy it now if I were you, before it gets trendy and over-familiar.
