This set of Christian songs has only a tenuous link to the movie; none are actually featured in it. Some are overlooked gems like "Where No One Stands Alone," a moving 1967 Elvis Presley tune, and the Original Five Blind Boys of Alabama's classic "Precious Lord." But Leonard Cohen's croak on "By the Rivers Dark" celebrates Leonard more than the Lord, and Bob Dylan's rasp on "Not Dark Yet" is likely to be rejected by any heavenly choir. Like the film, this album won't get you whistling, but it may get you praying.
