"First, I'm a huge Calexico fan and basically have to own everything they release, or my life is like a book missing a chapter. Second, if you've ever listened to their seminal album 'The Black Light', you know they should have been chosen to do the soundtrack to "All the Pretty Horses", not Marty Stuart. Their music lives and breathes the ambient whispers and southwestern desert soul of the novels of Cormac McCarthy. Heck, they're even from Tucson. Well, we can only hope that if "Blood Meridian" ever gets made into a movie, Calexico is chosen to make the original soundtrack recording.So I saw the description of the Committed soundtrack as "music composed and performed by Calexico", and was immediately drawn to buy it. Then, much to my dismay I get the disc and Calexico has re-recorded instrumental versions of their greatest hits of their past three albums. They even renamed the songs! After a string of great albums, including The Black Light (incredible), Road Map '98-'98 (very good), Descamino (awesome), and Hot Rail (so so), they stumble here while pulling the wool over our eyes. At least they spared us the overdose of sappy mariachi horns prevalent on Hot Rail. Next time tell us what we're getting!"
