True Detective...Music from the HBO Series..produced by T-Bone Burnett



This album release was produced by T-Bone Burnett and encompasses 14 tracks from Season 1 and Season 2 of the critically acclaimed series. Artists include Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan, Nick Cave & Warren Ellis, Lera Lynn and Cassandra Wilson.

Here's one review from Amazon....

"There's something dark and creepy and beautifully moving about this album—fears instilled, faded hopes remembered. Many of the songs feel influenced by sixties-style folk music and Cash-like country, with the exception of the gospel blues-tinged “Sign of the Judgment,” the more modern sounding “Risk,” and the gravelly, conversational “Nevermind.” Feeling at once rusty and new, the tracks that Lera Lynn composed for the show, especially “My Least Favorite Life,” are particularly haunting. As with any good mix, variation is present but not extreme as a vein of a mourning and reflection on death—physical or that of ruined relationships and dreams—threads throughout. An excellent background for an afternoon spent alone, sifting through old belongings and photographs, or driving on the open highway." (By thegreenleaf26 on August 14, 2015)
