Rezension

Das düstere 2007er Konzeptalbum der Cowboy Junkies zum Thema Familie, erstmals auf Vinyl erhältlich.

"Überhaupt überraschen auf "At the end of paths taken" handfeste Umrisse für die abstrakten Perspektiven. Es sind nicht mehr vor allem Michael lebendige Gitarren und Margos flehende Stimme, sondern zunehmend die konkreten Rhythmen von Schlagzeuger Peter und Bassist Alan Anton, die die Musik erden. Doch natürlich gibt es sie weiter, die verträumten Americana-Lagerfeuerigkeiten wie "Spiral down", "Someday soon" oder "Blue eyed saviour". Dazu ornamentieren Kinderchöre, Orchester und Lyrik ein Album, das mitten aus dem Leben greift." - plattentest.de/ Olive Ding

Review

First ever LP version, classic black vinyl, a reissue of 2007 Cowboy Junkies "family" concept album,

"In other words, this is not a typical -- and there is such a thing as a typical -- Cowboy Junkies recording. [...] What At the End of Paths Taken means for the Cowboy Junkies: it's like a renaissance. The emotion Margo infuses these lyrics with and the tautness of the musical performances are anything but lithe or lazy. They're hungry. - allmusic.com

"...You probably think you know what the new Cowboy Junkies record sounds like. You don't. Yes, the trademarks are there. How could it be otherwise after two decades? But they're all twisted, re-evaluated, renewed. Songs no longer draw life from the understated, almost unheard pulse of Alan Anton's bassline, a sound that now propels undulating melodies on "Mountain" or "My Little Basquiat". Anton almost switches places with Margo Timmins, still the most arresting voice in the game, yet buried deeper inside these songs, songs which create a surround sound universe of their own, be it from plaintive acoustics like "Someday Soon" or the kitchen sink overload of "Mountain", where all hell breaks loose. Tomorrow never knew." - Dave Bowler
