Reviews[edit]

  • Elisabeth Vincentelli of Amazon.com says, "The CD actually has a rather uniform tone, and mercifully it's a lovely one. Composer Mychael Danna is paired with the Denver band DeVotchKa, who perform his score and offer a few tunes of their own. Making excellent use of strings, tuba, and squeezebox, they set a mood that echoes the movie's warmly idiosyncratic one."[1]Clarification: the score songs are built from instrumental arrangements of original Devotchka songs, notably "We're Gonna Make It" and "The Winner Is" draw heavily from 2004's NPR album of the year, "How it Ends".
  • Jonathan Jarry called the soundtrack "an intriguing experiment in smaller folk sounds with a slight Eastern European twist, an American polka for dysfunctional families and the malaise of life."[2]
