Haunting. You will not forget this album.

"The music is melancholic and beautifully put together by David Robbins and is definitely one of the best soundtracks recently made. I especially like the two songs with Eddie Vedder and Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. I was thrilled when Eddie Vedder began his Pearl Jam concert in Denver by singing one of these songs. Unfortunately, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan died last year, otherwise these two could have collaborated again for an entire album."
One of the best albums I have heard, highly recommended

"This CD is my favorite CD so far. I listen to this CD on a regular basis. The best part of this CD are the two songs by Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and Eddie Vedder and also the last instrumental by Ry Cooder and V.M. Bhatt. This CD is different from the standard Dead Man Walking soundtrack. This has the extended and un-edited versions of the two songs I mentioned above and the additional instrumental. When I am listening to these two songs, it seems as if Khan and Vedder are sitting right next to me. The recording is excellent and the songs are sung very beautifully.I would highly highly recommend this CD to everyone reading this.My only wish is that they come out with the SACD version of this album!"
Innovative, and yet areas fall flat...

"Having Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan perform with Eddie Vedder was a stroke of genius-- Mr. Vedder sounds as if he is singing in Urdu, and the intense spiritualism and eroticism of Ustad Khan fit well in this movie of spirituality. Bruce Springsteen also makes an excellent contribution to the album-- his voice explores the haunting qualities that he provided in the Ghost of Tom Joad. The other contributions are a mixed bag-- strong in areas, but otherwise not memorable. The album is worth purchasing simply for the first mentioned songs, however!"
