Cold Mountain

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
Directed by Anthony Minghella (The English Patient, The Talented Mr. Ripley) and based on Charles Frazier's bestselling Civil War novel, Cold Mountain tells the story of wounded Confederate soldier Inman (Jude Law), who embarks on a perilous journey home to his mountain community -- and to his sweetheart, Ada (Nicole Kidman). For a musical match to this epic tale, Minghella tapped esteemed producer T-Bone Burnett, the man behind O Brother, Where Art Thou?'s acclaimed soundtrack. Burnett has assembled a sweeping set of folk- and bluegrass-inspired music, which he pairs with selections from the film's stirring score by Oscar winner Gabriel Yared (The English Patient, Possession).

Barnes & Noble
Directed by Anthony Minghella (The English Patient, The Talented Mr. Ripley) and based on Charles Frazier's bestselling Civil War novel, Cold Mountain tells the story of wounded Confederate soldier Inman (Jude Law), who embarks on a perilous journey home to his mountain community -- and to his sweetheart, Ada (Nicole Kidman). For a musical match to this epic tale, Minghella tapped esteemed producer T-Bone Burnett, the man behind O Brother, Where Art Thou?'s acclaimed soundtrack. Burnett has assembled a sweeping set of folk- and bluegrass-inspired music, which he pairs with selections from the film's stirring score by Oscar winner Gabriel Yared (The English Patient, Possession). Highlights include several newly recorded songs by Jack White of the White Stripes (who makes a cameo in the film), as well as two new tracks from bluegrass queen Alison Krauss.
All Music Guide - James Christopher Monger
Miramax hops on the old-timey bandwagon with the release of the soundtrack for Anthony Minghella's Civil War epic Cold Mountain. Like O Brother, Where Art Thou?'s dark, older sibling, the latest collection of blues, ballads, and laments from producer T-Bone Burnett is a veritable dictionary of traditional country and Americana, but with a weightier muse. Jack White opens the record with a stark rendition of "Wayfaring Stranger" featuring Nashville heavyweights Stuart Duncan, Norman Blake, and Dirk Powell. For the most part, the White Stripes frontman successfully transplants himself into the genre, utilizing his throaty warble on Howlin' Wolf's "Sittin' on Top of the World" like a dust-bowl carny, and channeling fellow tenor Ralph Stanley on "Great High Mountain." However, it's the self-penned "Never Far Away" that elevates White above his garage rock trappings. With its delicate front-porch picking and wistful lyrics, it manages to walk the line between heartache and puppy love with a sweetness that's genuinely moving. That same bleeding heart pumps through Alison Krauss' delivery of Elvis Costello's powerful "Scarlet Tide," a ballad of devastating beauty that works almost like a spiritual. Recovering songwriter Sting contributes the record's only bad apple, the bland "You Will Be My Ain True Love." Krauss does her best to paint the tune in period colors, but Sting -- who insists on singing harmony -- keeps the piece firmly entrenched in the very nonsepia-toned world of adult-contemporary pop. Unfortunately, the orchestral work for the film is hastily assembled as if it were an afterthought. While it may lack the initial punch of Tim Eriksen's "I Wish My Baby Was Born" or either of the shape-note tunes provided by the Sacred Harp Singers at Liberty Church, Burnett clusters composer Gabriel Yared's understated score at the end of the record, delegating it as filler, which is unfair, as its quiet power mirrors the songs as well as the characters.
Rolling Stone - Gaylord Fields
Cold Mountain's salvation is the Sacred Harp Singers at Liberty Church, a shaped-note choral group that delivers its two hymns with an otherworldly intensity.

    Don't Point Fingers

    Don't point fingers until you know your facts. The Jack White appearing in Cold Mountain and heard on the soundtrack is the same Jack Black in White Stripes. Check out IMDB to get your facts straight. That being said, this is an excellent soundtrack and gives you a great sample of American Folk music with a dash of history thrown in.

    Excellent Soundtrack

    This soundtrack conveys perfectly the outstanding ability of music to carry emotion and displays folk music in an accessible, interesting, and well-done way, making it worthwhile even for someone who rarely listens to folk music. Also, the tracks by the Sacred Harp Singers exemplify an amazing and refreshing enthusiasm rarely heard in church music today.

    Songs to Remember

    i thought the song, " you will be my ain true love," sung by alison krauss with sting in harmony was utterly beautiful. jack white was fantastic. the soundtrack brings the message of the movie home that war is wrong and that love is all that matters. every time i hear this soundtrack i am moved beyond words. i also have the movie on dvd and each time i watch it iam amazed.

    Wonderful Soundtrack!!

    I really love this CD, it's a great album if you love folk music. I love most of the songs on it. The only songs I don't like on it are "Lady Margret" and "Was I born to Die?". The rest I enjoy a lot. I think that Jack White (member of the White Stripes) did a fantastic job on the songs he did. The songs he sings on here are much softer and slower than his usual rock songs he does. All in all great CD!!

    Amazing!

    Gabriel Yard's work is amazing, adding to the deepness and beauty of the film. Tears come to my eyes when the music plays, and Sting and Allison Kraus's "Ain True Love" adds a beautiful touch. Amazing music, recommend it and the movie, there my favorite!

    An Obvious and Amateurish Mistake, Sirs.

    The Jack White on the Cold Mountain soundtrack is not the same Jack White that makes those lo-fi White Stripes masterpieces. Obviously. I can't believe even the (presumably) professional reviewer goofed that one up. Geez. All in all, an excellent album if you are interested in the ancestors of American folk music.

    De Lovely

    I love the folkieness in this soundtrack,especially the songs sung by Jack White,he's me favorite to listen to. By end of track four I was crying,just the melancholy sound of Allison Krauss's voice,just beautiful. I love anything Cival War period,music was lovely then.

    T-Bone Burnett did a great job on this one

    As a dedicated Sacred Harp singer& lover of all traditional musics,I must say that T-Bone Burnett did a wonderful job on this recording.Being a Sacred Harp singer,I suppose that I am biased towards the two tunes recorded at Liberty Church in Henagar& the lovely "Lady Margaret" by my dear friend Cassie Franklin,whom I have sung with here in Kalamazoo,Michigan at our Annual All-Day Sing.Sacred Harp is,if one goes to a sing, one will find that it is a vibrant,living music that should be kept alive.
