Format: Audio CD
Dylan-collaborater T-Bone Burnett has been behind several of the best soundtracks of recent years- from 1997's The Big Lebowski (which tended to use back catalogue material, such as Dylan, Captain Beefheart & the Gipsy Kings)to 2000's bestseller O, Brother Where Art Thou? (which was far more popular than the film & starred artists like Ralph Stanley, Alison Krauss, Gillian Welch & Emmylou Harris). O Brother...even lead to a documentary by DA Pennebaker & a spin-off soundtrack, Down from the Mountain. It seemed that the roots sound of the Harry Smith Folk Anthology had found a fresh audience- the soundtrack to Anthony Mingella's adaptation of Cold Mountain is as great as those soundtracks (I've not seen the film yet- but this album is brilliant in its own sphere anyway...)
As O Brother & Down from the Mountain, there are songs that are somewhere between appalachian, blues, country & folk- loosely defined as roots & Alison Krauss returns from O Brother to sing on a few tracks. An array of artists (Tim O'Brien, The Reeltime Travelers, Cassie Franklin, Tim Eriksen etc) feature- which opens up further possibilities for further purchases I can't really afford! The Sacred Harp Singers at Liberty Church are a wonderful discovery & Gabriel Yared (Betty Blue) offers some great instrumentals also.
But the highlight for me are the five-tracks from Jack White, of the acclaimed White Stripes; now I don't really see the appeal of the White Stripes- it all seems like hype from the media/XL-records & worthy of the joke Paul Morley makes about them regarding 1963 in his recent book Words & Music. It all seems like garage-rock retro & not as interesting as similar acts like Violent Femmes, Pixies, Pussy Galore, Royal Trux, Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, The Cramps & Gun Club.

Whether you like the film or not, this is a great album of old timey/bluegrass music. Jack White is a revelation. Alison Krauss is as reliable as ever. Cassie Franklin produces one of the highlights. The Sacred Harp Singers made the hair on my neck stand up. I don't think the Gabriel Yared tracks add much to the CD and do not really fit in with the other tracks but they are ok. Ignoring those tracks this is a CD of pwoerful music beautifully played and produced. Recommended to those who enjoy the old timey/bluegrass/accoustic music.

I was hesitant in buying this CD as while i like all traditional American folk music, it is usually because i am listening to it as it is in the film i.e 'Hatfield and McCoy's" and the film calls for such wonderful music.

Well, without having seen the film 'Cold Mountain', i might have been dissapointed with the CD. Having said this, it gets **** because the music is so typical of those times and i can clearly visualise the scenes from the film.
As to the singers, composers etc they are not known to me but they have created a wonderful traditional American folk music of the highest calibre.

My only slight dissapointment was the Love themes in their entirety. In the film the short bits used really conveyed their meaning but the full pieces i felt at times lacked this.

This is a varied mix of mountain music - all of which are of the highest quality. Jack White (Stripes) adds an interesting dimension and does a great job, I particularly like the Riley Baugus/Tim Eriksen tracks but all are great ... if you liked the film you will love this cd.

When I sing the praises of Cold Mountain _ the movie_ to my friends, to their misfortune, they say they have never heard of it. Listening to the soundtrack just has to indicate to all of you, who also have not heard of the film, JUST WHAT HAVE I BEEN MISSING? Cold Mountain as a truly great love story, set against the backdrop of the American Civil War, it stars Nicole Kidman, Jude Law and Rene Zellweger and this is the awesome soundtrack of the film. So, listen to the soundtrack, and WATCH THE MOVIE.

I bought this cd for two main reasons: i loved the film "Cold Mountain" and because i'm a big Jack White's fan. I like almost every song in this album, it doesn't disappoint at all and it just takes us back to some movie scenes (most of them really emocional, which makes the music even more beautiful). Jack White's perfomance is really great, it is a must-buy for any his fans.

The film itself was breathtaking, and the music, fantatsic. The CD has many good tracks, of which some are amazing (1,4,8, 15 and 16). The are a couple of irritating tracks, but on the whole, a beautiful collection of superb, original and emotional songs. Also (the film 'Cold Mountain')won a BAFTA (or similar) award for best music.
