4.0 out of 5 stars the whole thing shifts, June 17, 2004
This review is from: One Soul Now (Audio CD)
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.
