  • Given its breadth and stunning stylistic range, summing up the 40-plus year career of guitarist and musical man of the world Ry Cooder is a logistical impossibility, but this two-disc anthology comes close to accomplishing the task. THE RY COODER ANTHOLOGY: THE UFO HAS LANDED skims the cream from the artist's massive output, representing his excursions into blues, folk, soul, rock, and Tex-Mex, among other genres, across 34 tracks.
  • The set kicks off with Cooder's cover of Johnny Cash's "Get Rhythm" and proceeds through traditional tunes ("Jesse James"), film soundtracks ("Paris, Texas"), and collaborations (like the previously unreleased "Let's Work Together" with Buckwheat Zydeco). Cooder's slide guitar work shines throughout, but it's the bringing together of such a remarkable span of music--across years and genres--that makes THE UFO HAS LANDED such a treat.

Professional Reviews
Dirty Linen (p.50) - "[I]t does succeed in demonstrating his far-reaching cultural and stylistic interests and the profound influences he has had on roots music of the last several decades."

Uncut (magazine) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "His soundtrack work is represented by spine-tingling excerpts from PARIS, TEXAS and SOUTHERN COMFORT, and his talent for whisking up a polyrhythmic stew of blues, cajun and zydeco shines on 'Let's Work Together.'"

This is a wonderful anthology by one of most important unsung heroes of the last 50 years. I can't think of many anthologies that can present an artist to new fans as thoroughly and joyfully as this one.

I just have one complaint, and it's not a minor one. Where the heck is "Across the Borderline"?. Not only is it his most covered song, not many songs can capture a mindset that of hundreds of thousands of immigrants from the south like that. I'm not making a political statement here - this song is just like capturing lightning in a bottle and its omission leaves a big hole in this otherwise perfect collection.
