All Music Guide - Richie Unterberger
Even within the unpredictable Neil Young discography, this qualifies as one of his most unpredictable efforts. This soundtrack to the Jim Jarmusch film Dead Man is entirely instrumental, with the exception of some poetry read by Johnny Depp who stars in the film and a bit of dialogue. What's more, these untitled instrumental passages are dominated by subterranean guitar rumbles that manage to sound both grungy and subdued.

The results not only evoke the hostile, desolate landscapes of the film's Old West, but work on their own terms as ambient ...

It's not necessarily for the typical Neil Young fan whoever that might be, but it's certainly one of his most successful experimental efforts.

    DEAD MAN

    I find this cd to be really relaxing and promotes thought. Its also a good cd to just kick back and trip out on. With excerpts from the movie and poetry read by Johnny Depp this soundtrack is impressive.
