CD Reviews

Absolutely great
03/13/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is definitely the one CJ album to buy if you are only going to have one. There is not a bad cut on this, and there are numerous great ones. "Powderfinger" by Neil Young & Crazy Horse is one of my favorite rockers, but in the CJ's hands it becomes an ethereal ballad. The CJ's version of "Sweet Jane" is likewise very different from the Velvet Underground's, but equally authentic. The most memorable cuts on this album, however, are the CJ's own songs. They remind me a lot of their Canadian countryman Gordon Lightfoot, with very intelligent lyrics and carefully crafted melodies. Their sound is unique, and Margo Timmins' voice should be declared a national treasure. I can't imagine why they aren't bigger stars. You won't regret adding this to your collection."
COMPILATION ONE

"I've always thought that a good compilation should present the songs I would have chosen if I had to produce the CD. And it's obviously the case with Cowboy Junkies's STUDIO : SELECTED RECORDINGS 1986-1995. Each one of the 14 songs is a favorite of mine."Sweet Jane", "Blue Moon" and "Powderfinger" are exceptional versions of classics and the Michaël Timmins compositions presented in STUDIO are achievements in the canadian author-composer's career. There is only one until then unrecorded song "Lost my driving wheel" ; only a live version of this song was available on the precedent album of the Junkies : 200 MORE MILES.So this compilation should rejoice the CJ fan as well as the curious listener in search of original music. After a few listenings, he will soon order the whole musical production of this first-rate band.A CD for your library."

"This cd is a magnificient hour-long collection of great music from the peerless & unique Cowboy Junkies. The selections (covering tracks from the six studio albums through 1995's "Lay it Down") are presented chronologically and provide the listener the opportunity to experience the growth of the band through the years (not that any growth was really needed). From the early "Shining Moon", the classic "Misguided Angel", to an unreleased 6+ minute studio version of "Lost My Driving Wheel", these songs are literate (Michael Timmins is one of the great songwriters of the past 10 years) and sung with such sultry passion you will be gasping for air. For the unitiated, this is a great place to start your Cowboy Junkies' collection. And for those already familiar with the great Canadian band, this cd provides the perfect summary of their first ten years! Buy it!"
