Saw the movie and loved everything about it. The cast, the acting, the cinematography, the music, etc. I could go on but I bought two copies of this soundtrack as b'day gifts for friends who also saw it and loved it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice soundtrack to challenging movie Jan. 12 2014
By Paul Allaer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I recently saw "August: Osage County" in the theatre, and made a mental note to check out the soundtrack, as the music plays prominently throughout the movie. As it turns out, there are TWO soundtracks from the movie: there is the orchestral score by Gustavo Santaolalla, and then there is this one, containing the songs that are featured in the movie.

"August: Osage County (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)" (14 tracks; 40 min.) starts off with Bon Iver's "Himmon, TX" (from his self-titled 2011 album) and then dives straight into Kings of Leon's "Last Mile Home (Acoustic Version)", the original version of which appears on the deluxe version of their recent "Mechanical Bull" album. In the movie, it actually plays over the closing credits, but for whatever reason they album producers decided to place it upfront on here. Then comes the movie's pivotal song, "Lay Down Sally" from Eric Clapton, which plays over the opening credits, and then again a couple more times during key scenes (It is the Meryl Streep's character all-time favorite song). Even though Gustavo Santaolalla is credited for scoring the movie, Adam Taylor actually also provides a number of instrumental passages, and they are included on here, including the soaring "Don't Let Go" and a tender "The Kiss". The Benedict Cumberbatch character sings a nice little love song in the movie called "Can't Keep It Inside" for his love interest and it is also included here. This collection closes with 3 contributions from Gustavo Santaolalla, including a stellar "End Credits" featuring gorgeous play from the Spanish guitar. That same theme returns (or I should say, was already featured) in "Barb Balcony".

Bottom line: this is a very nice collection of music, even though the sequencing leaves me scratching my head. But besides that, all the key songs in the movie are included, and this also contains some of the very nice instrumental music score of the movie. "August: Osage County (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)" is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Just a few words as to the movie itself: as big a fan as I am of Meryl Streep, I think she is way off course in this one, with her performance so borderline over the top that it almost ruins the movie, You can just feel the acting dripping off the screen. The big surprise for me instead was Julia Richards, now 46, and possibly turning in her most mature movie role in her career. Bottom line: at times the movie is highly enjoyable, and emotionally heavy, but at other times the acting is so OBVIOUS and almost over the top, that it really detracts from the movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good soundtrack to a very good movie Jan. 10 2014

The original tunes on this soundtrack are so good - the Bon Iver & Kings of Leon songs are actually wonderful. And both songs play in the movie, so listening to them brings that same tone.

The score music is really very good as well.

I didn't like this very much.... maybe too real, too close to real life for me.
Far too much vulgarity for this old lumberjack.
I did however enjoy the end song LAST MILE HOME....so much so that I have downloaded it.
I have loaned this out several times and their " reviews " are close to mine.
I've seen both Julia Roberts and Meryl Streep play much better roles.
I bought the movie based on the cast.
