Album Review: Soundtracks [Box Set] by Ry Cooder

Great, Based on 2 Critics

PopMatters - 80
Based on rating 8/10

Throughout his long career, Ry Cooder has successfully avoided the cult of personality. His music stands on its own without interference. So often records get peddled with some kind of back story - what’s going on in the artist’s personal life, why or how the music was made, or just simply through a big, over-characterisation of the musician. As a listener and hardcore music consumer, it becomes a little tiresome being pitched a story in magazines or on TV to be persuaded to buy something, when in any event you’ll either like the music or you won’t.

AllMusic - 70
Based on rating 7/10

Ry Cooder had well established himself as an instrumentalist, songwriter, bandleader, and session musician when he added another title to his résumé in 1980: film composer. Director Walter Hill invited Cooder to compose and perform music for his historical western The Long Riders, and the music was good enough that other filmmakers were soon knocking at Cooder's door. Soundtracks is a box set that collects the original soundtrack albums for seven films scored by Ry Cooder -- The Long Riders; Paris, Texas; Alamo Bay; Crossroads; Blue City; Johnny Handsome, and Trespass.
