Rolling Stone (1/25/96, p.69) - 4 Stars (out of 5) - "...12 original songs...that explore the emotional, spiritual and moral tug of war surrounding the plight of a death-row inmate and his victim's families..."
Q (3/96, p.94) - 4 Stars (out of 5) - "...this is a coherent piece of work, immersed in the story and themes of the movie, and engrossing from first to last..."
Alternative Press (5/96, p.75) - "...a soundtrack that actually dares to have some relevance to the movie it's singing about..."
Option (3-4/96, p.99) - "...an elegant, richly textured soundscape that moves far beyond pop narcissism to inhabit a spiritual place all its own..."
Musician (4/96, p.92) - "Though it's packaged like any other star-heavy soundtrack collection, this one is really a...meditation on justice, prison and the death penalty..."
NME (Magazine) (1/27/96, p.44) - 8 (out of 10) - "...The real coup was getting Eddie Vedder together with Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan....It's a great exercise in self-respect, as Nusrat lets his voice rip along the scales, but still leaves Eddie the space to trail his melancholy tones..."

Not quite a soundtrack, MUSIC FROM AND INSPIRED BY THE MOTION PICTURE DEAD MAN WALKING is the result of director Tim Robbins sending a rough cut of the film to his favorite singer-songwriters and asking them to respond in song. Not all the songs were used in the movie, but on disc they form a separate and equally powerful meditation on the same basic subjects: sin, redemption and the thoughts that run through a man's head as he awaits execution. The performers may be the most awesome group of Dylan disciples ever collected in one place--Bruce Springsteen, Johnny Cash, Patti Smith, Tom Waits and Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder (who does two mystical duets with Pakistani singer Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan) among them--and the sum is something like Springsteen's NEBRASKA re-seen through a chimera of eyes. The music is nearly as stark, but much more varied--plainspoken folk from Springsteen and Lyle Lovett, defiantly sassy blues from Waits and Michelle Shocked, spiritual, droning tones from Smith, Vedder and Khan. And while hopelessness and resignation flow through all of the songs, there is a gospel undercurrent as well--a suggestion that while love may not conquer all, it may somehow still survive even after all is conquered.
