  • Summary: Producer T-Bone Burnett compiled this collection of traditional Americana, country and blues tunes to complement Anthony Minghella's Civil War epic. Among the performers here are Alison Krauss and the White Stripes' Jack White.

    So cool and so good that no one will even notice Meg White has been replaced by a mandolin.
  2. Having the White Stripes' Jack White (who also appears in the film) sing four of the dozen 1800s-era numbers here in a reasonable proto-hillbilly whine provides a solid point of entry for nonfolkies.
  3. Unfortunately, the orchestral work for the film is hastily assembled as if it were an afterthought.
  4. Works nearly as well on its own as it did when accompanying the film.
  5. While it's unlikely that he'll pursue anything as historically precise as this for a solo career, 'Cold Mountain' proves what most of us have long suspected: when The White Stripes end, White will be far from finished.
  6. Cold Mountain's salvation is the Sacred Harp Singers at Liberty Church, a shaped-note choral group that delivers its two hymns with an otherworldly intensity.
  7. Mostly though this is bland Hollywood fodder masquerading as something more.
