Rezension

Drittes Album (`90) mit mehr eigenem Material von Michael Timmins und einer schönen Version von “Powderfinger” (Neil Young). Wie auch bei den “Trinity Sessions” sorgen Jeff Bird (Mandoline, Fiddle), Jaro Czerwinec (Akkordeon) und Kim Deschamps (Pedal- & Lap-Steel) für bezaubernde Backgroundakzente.

Review

“At the center of the stillness that is the music of the Cowboy Junkies sits singer Margo Timmins (if they really are a band, we wish theyþd show somebody else besides her in all the publicity photos), and as she sings the lyrics (which her brother writes) in a frail and achingly distant voice, weþre immediately pulled inside, straining through the languor and pensive cigarette smoke, trying to catch her every word. True, sometimes the Junkiesþ music can be so listless and detached that even the moods they create can be ambivalent and vague - on "Sun Comes Up, Itþs Tuesday Morning," Timminsþs character seems tired, world-weary and emotionally battered ("Iþd rather listen to Coltrane than go through all that shit again"), but the next moment she decides she likes being alone after all. Not quite as hushed or heavy-lidded as the The Trinity Session LP, The Caution Horses is made for pacing oaken floors or waiting at desolate train stations. Itþs music for somewhere between that after-hours moment in the dimly-lit honky-tonk bar when Patsy Cline comes on the jukebox for the last time and that instant when the sun first starts to turn the sky from black to purple. Top Cuts: "Sun Comes Up," "`Cause Cheap Is How I Feel," "Marinerþs Song" and "Where Are You Tonight."” (CMJ)
