This is exactly the kind of soundtrack you'd expect to complement a movie that takes a humorous if sentimental look at the power of love and friendship. Natalie Portman, Ashley Judd, Stockard Channing, and Joan Cusack star in the film and they have musical counterparts in Beth Nielsen Chapman, Martina McBride, and teen blues star Shannon Curfman. All tracks are manicured performances high in cinematic gloss and often enveloped in swooning strings or other effects of grandeur. It's only appropriate then that a stylist as accomplished as Lyle Lovett would smooth over Ray Charles's "What'd I Say," and that eternal studio pro and road veteran John Hiatt would contribute the workmanlike R&B-influenced "Let It Slip Away." One sure surprise is Joan Osborne's collaboration with Tommy Sims for the hip-hop-R&B of "Rowdy Booty Time." Most successful is Emmylou Harris and Patty Griffin's duet of "Beyond the Blue," on which their complementary voices merge with a subdued rhythm track for one of the soundtrack's few inspired moments. --Rob O'Connor

"This sountrack has got a little something for everyone. My favorite songs are: #12 "Just Might Change Your Life" by a group called 3 of Hearts. They are awesome! My next favorite song is #13 "That's The Beat OF A Heart" by The Warren Brothers and Sara Evans. Get it and ENJOY!"
The Best Original Songs!

"Where The Heart Is has some of the best original songs for a sound track I have ever heard. There is not one song on this CD that you wouldn't like and that is very rare. They are all AWESOME! From the originals to the older classics. Great movie, great CD! How it got over looked for an award is beyond me."
