O Brother, Where Art Thou? is a movie first released in 2000. The Coen Brothers directed it and it starred George Clooney, John Turturro, and others. It’s said to be a retelling of The Odyssey set in the Deep South of the 1930s. It’s decent enough, I suppose. But the soundtrack? The soundtrack is excellent.
The album is a compilation of American folk music; a mixture of secular and Christian songs. And the artists who perform them range across a spectrum of backgrounds and ages. My favorite is “Down to the River to Pray,” sung a capella by Alison Krauss and a chorus (see the video at top). This Christian hymn is beautifully performed and it never gets old.
It’s hard to choose other standouts simply because all the songs are good. So the two that follow I’m choosing simply because they show how much variety is on the album.
