"Our problem isn't a dearth of ideas, but rather a surplus," says Michael Timmins of Cowboy Junkies. "For the first time, we are completely free of any recording contracts and obligations. We find ourselves writing and recording more than we have in years, our studio feels more and more like home, and the band now has twenty-five years under the hood and is sounding so darn ...

Product Description

Margo Timmins is one of the more ponderous singers in all of rock. Her elegant, yearning vocals are still soothing listeners into a false sense of security as she downplays human disaster scenarios, trailer park homicides, and anxious couplings on the Cowboy Junkie's tenth studio album. But this time things sound a little more raucous; the Canadian band displays a bit more grit and primitivism, especially on a track like "Why This One," which strangely sounds like a rather sluggish Peaches track, without the cursing. Beneath this band's graceful posturing lies a deep discontent and anger, but band lyricist Michael Timmins manages to once again turn that gentle simmering fury into poetic grandeur. --Jaan Uhelszki

A cynic might've said: "you've heard one of their albums, ya heard'm all".. Well, i happen to be a heavy cynic, but there's no way i could bring myself to say that. With this, being their 10th album, what could one expect actually? For most bands this just means one more repeat effort cashing in for the upcoming pension days. For most bands yes, but the Junkies do belong to that elite few who gring out several albums over the years without losing their magic, and somehow, always finding a way to intrigue the listener anew.
With them, it's mostly the storytelling that comes across their cool lyrics.If you don't speak english and you just try and get a feel about what they're singing about you might think it's all lazy lil songs about the summer and sitting in the sun. But, and that's the cool trick really, it's mostly pretty bleak and dark confessions and narrations dressed with a rather sarcastic musical scape.
Speaking of their music, what i've always loved about their albums, is that they have a way to rationalise tragedy, sadness and misery through that majestically hypnotic music of theirs.
In "One soul now" this is once more the case: beautiful tracks that never tire you but rather soothe you and leave you with a notion like "whatever happens we'll live another day".
For those familiar with the group this new album is top-notch stuff, one of their best in years in fact. For those who haven't discovered the magic the pouring heavily through their music and lyrics "One soul now" is ideal to start from. The odds are you will (like many before you) want to check into their past as well. Brilliant stuff.

I'd like to say that the Junkies keep getting better and better. Nope. And this is a good thing. I need some things to pop up and bite me with a beautiful consistency. One Soul Now is a breath of fresh musical air with Margo's sexy, sedated voice and the other Timmons rocking out in their fuzzy, bluesy, river rat kind of way-sometimes I hear Neil Young in those licks and other times just a bar band flipping off the gloss of over-production and jamming out.
Some tunes on this one are downright bouncy. I don't find the story telling of the lyrics quite up to par. The last song about an indescriminate God seems too contrived and musically not strong enough as the other nine songs.
And why not put the extra disk on the first disk and give us our money's worth?
Just once I would like to see a real fine Producer grab Timmons by the-um-throat and say let me produce an album, push you a little, tell you this song isn't strong enough, let's feature Margo on this one a little more. You know, this song sounds too much like that song from...It won't happen. I love them though and when I was walking the beach last week my two little kids filled my shorts with shells from the Ponce Inlet jetty and while the Junkies new one was blaring through my IPOD I started singing, "Rally Round the Family! With a pocket full of shells!"
I think that's the way these Timmon's would be if you were to step in try to change them in any way.
So be it. I'll buy everything they put out.

Cowboy Junkies have become a staple of my music collection. Their longevity has not diminished their musical ability nor their perspective. They are as relevent as ever, and continue to be overlooked by the Music Industry, but not the fans that allow them to play Wolfe Trap in VA or tour Europe on a fairly regular basis.
Sublime in it's sound, Michael Timmins continues to use his guitar as a weapon, with his notes lurking in the woods, waiting to come grab you. His lyrics on this album, which his sister faithfully sings, are more introspective. As on other albums, his characters continue to struggle w/ Christian Spirituality in a modern cruel world. He never completely rejects it, but rather comes across as honest with it's shortcomngs.
Timmins continues to use his guitar to paint a picture, and his sister to tell a story. The story may come out meloncholy, but one walks away from each song and sound wondering if there is a lesson to be learned. In a world where image is everything, it s good to hear a message delivered or a story told by a band that is low key and is strong enough to allow their music to stand on it's own.
I recommend this album and wish the band continued success.

for those who've followed the junkies thus far, saying this is a deep, elegant slice of southern gothic rock-folk is going to be nothing new.
but that's what it is. falling somewhere a little closer to "lay it down" than "open", this album contains the latter album's long washes of cure-influenced guitar feedback, and instead channels it towards an obvious lambchop influence which turns the more uptempo numbers on this album into near-bar band rock.
but don't think this is a "happy" junkies, oh no: have you EVER known a cowboy junkies album to take five songs' worth of unfolding to reach one song that sounds like it could possibly be a single? "stars of our stars" seems to be the only true "uptempo" number on here. there's a lot of deep, dark territory to explore, and though i liked "open" better for its immediate expanse of dark chasms...there's a wide crevice here for fans to dive into.
