Album Review

A refreshed, revitalized sound that doesn't sacrifice the delicate touches that first made them unique; rugged, but still pristine. Much of the new spark emanates from the strings of honorary Junkie Ken Myhr, who peals out intense, biting lead guitar throughout. Especially prominent is his incendiary slide work on "Seven Years" and a spectacular cover of Dinosaur Jr.'s "The Post." Still, it's hard to imagine a ballad instrument more haunting and ethereal than Margo Timmins' voice.

Unheard and so sad

I I do believe I like this better than "Trinity Sessions". This and "Black Eyed Man" were immediately two of my favorites cds of ALL time. The Junkies are not heard often enough. I believe they should be played on radio stations across America. "Anniversary Song" just might be my favorite song.

Beautiful, unknown gem ...

Absolutely a good, even great album ... but "Crescent Moon" itself is one of the most perfectly-crafted, haunting, stunning songs the CJ's (or anyone else) have ever recorded.

I might buy Trinity and Caution Horses first, but this won't disappoint and don't leave without the song!

Although it didn't originally have anything to do with their sound, the Cowboy Junkies' name wound up seeming pretty accurate: their music was grounded in traditional country, blues, and folk, yet drifted along in a sleepy, narcotic haze that clearly bore the stamp of the Velvet Underground. The vast majority of their songs were spare and quiet, taken at lethargic tempos and filled with languid guitars and detached, ethereal vocals courtesy of Margo Timmins. Over the late '80s and '90s, the group...
