"I have many Cajun CD's including a few compilations, but this is by far the best compilation I have found. It's clear that John Sayles cared about getting the music for this movie set in bayou country right, and that he selected the music with the same care that he uses in crafting his films. The soundtrack includes a range of great uptempo Zydeco tunes as well as some haunting Cajun melodies by some of the best performers in these genres. Other songs included on the CD that were done for the soundtrack fit right in with these Zydeco and Cajun greats, unlike some soundtracks where the "soundtrack" stuff is just filler. The only bum track on the CD is the last one, Bwana's Garden, on which the CD first loses its authentic and rootsy feel and veers into bland Cajun-inflected pop territory. Definitely a good addition to any Cajun music collection."
