    Bruce Springsteen's "Dead Man Walkin'" was nominated for a 1997 Grammy Award for Best Male Rock Vocal Performance.
    "The predominant style that you hear in the score is Pakistani Sufi devotional (Qawwali) chanting...," writes composer and music supervisor David Robbins of the recordings that make up his score for Dead Man Walking. Accordingly, the predominant performer is singer Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. The score album replicates two duets between Khan and Pearl Jam singer Eddie Vedder from the other Dead Man Walking soundtrack album, which contained "music from and inspired by the motion picture," but the versions heard here are longer. ~ William Ruhlmann

  • Critic Reviews
    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) - " 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..."
