All Music Guide - Richie Unterberger
Since he's a limited vocalist with erratic songwriting skills, one could justifiably argue that the soundtrack medium is the best vehicle for Ry Cooder's talents, allowing him to construct eclectic, chiefly instrumental pieces drawing upon all sorts of roots music and ethnic flavors often, but not always, employing his excellent blues and slide guitar. This two-CD, 34-song compilation gathers excerpts from 11 of the soundtracks he worked on between 1980 and 1993 three of the cuts, from the 1981 film Southern Comfort, are previously unreleased.

As few listeners even Cooder fans are dedicated enough to go to the trouble of finding all of his individual soundtracks, this is a good distillation of many of his more notable contributions in this idiom, although it inevitably leaves out some fine moments. Still, it's well programmed and evocative, often conjuring visions of ghostly landscapes and funky border towns.

    Marred By One Track

    This is a fine atmospheric collection. However, I was really bothered by King of the Street, a drug dealer's obscenity-laced rant and the first track on Disc 2. It was jarring and seemed to have little to do with the rest of the music. I was a bit surprised it did not earn this set a warning label. I'm docking this anthology a star because of it. Anyone interested in Cooder should buy his The UFO Has Landed 2 CD collection.
