Review of The Lone Ranger: Wanted Original Soundtrack (Universal Music Canada)

The Lone RangerWhether or not you’ve taken the time to go see The Lone Ranger: Wanted in theatres, the soundtrack is well worth checking out. A collection of country-influenced songs from some not so surprising artists including Lucinda Williams, Ben Kweller and Sara Watkins, the fun doesn’t stop there. There are more than a few wonderful surprises: Dave Alvin does a wonderful job tackling Hank Williams’ Lonesome Whistle while Iron & Wine’s original song Rattling Bone doesn’t forge much new territory for the band but is an absolute keeper nonetheless.
