Mind blowing when it was released because there just wasn't anything like it out there. No frills, just beautiful vocals backed by an excellent band. Their version of "Sweet Jane" is amazing.

Morose, one paced alt country lp with a songstress with definite vocal range issues. A catatonic version of Sweet Jane bought them a considerable audience in North America bit I'm feeling somewhat dissapointed by this one.

From buzzdainer 07/18/2016 14:45
Recorded with the band circled around a single microphone in Toronto's Church of the Holy Trinity, this album's intimacy and immediacy reflects the surroundings in which it was made. The result is a a languid, dreamy, haunting listening experience. The band's sound centers on the custard-smooth voice of Margo Timmins, but there is both great songwriting here and some excellent selections of covers. Their version of Lou Reed's "Sweet Jane" is one of the best interpretations of that song, and Michael Timmins' "Postcard Blues" is one of the album's many highlights.

A hauntingly beautiful album, full of superb intimate tracks, including a lovely take on Lou Reed's, sweet Jane. Good record.

Pre-dates the whole alt-country movement. Pioneering stuff from the Canadian siblings.

Strong album with excellent vocals. Relaxing music with nice country/jazz elements to it. Akin to a more up to date, Joni Mitchell, cant be a bad thing.

Consistently-focused, this mellow offering is easily the standout album in the cowboy junkies catalog. i love their take on "blue moon".

If you wonder what is the pace of life on heroin, here is the answer. This is just plain beautiful easy listening music with texts that are NOT about the most beautiful things life has to offer.
