I love the music on this soundtrack. Oscar Isaac is a talented actor and singer in the title role. He makes me believe that he could have been a folk singer from 1961. He portrays a singer who is grieving for the loss of his singing partner to suicide. Most of these songs reflect a sense of sorrow. I think they are simply beautiful to listen to. "Hang Me, Oh Hang Me" is a song where I can truly feel the pain in Oscar Isaac's voice. This song is very moving. "Please Mr. Kennedy" is a song about all the reasons why a person should be sent to outer space. The lyrics are humorous. I enjoy this song very much. "500 Miles" is a classic folk song. Carey Mulligan harmonizes well with Justin Timberlake here. This song is beautiful to listen to. "Fare Thee Well" is a song that Llewyn Davis sings to his father who lives in a nursing home. This is a perfect song to comfort someone going through the last stages of life. Every chord of this song touches my heart. Oscar's acoustic guitar playing on the song on "The Death of Queen Jane" is superb. There is a soothing quality in Oscar's voice on this song. "The Auld Triangle" is a happier song performed by members of Mumford and Sons. It sounds more like a song performed by a barber shop quartet than a folk song. I love this song nonetheless. It is a fun song that I could see myself singing with my buddies at a party. The songs on this soundtrack makes a fan of folk music. I really enjoyed it.
