    Imagine four chairs on stage with the conservative and liberal representatives of the good guys and the bad guys about to enter the picture from somewhere in the foreseeable future. The planet continues to grow bigger and warmer, and its mothers' sons and daughters are dealt a royal load. So what do the four reps talk about? We can only hope they're talking about peace, because Imagine four chairs on stage with the conservative and liberal representatives of the good guys and the bad guys about to enter the picture from somewhere in the foreseeable future. The planet continues to grow bigger and warmer, and its mothers' sons and daughters are dealt a royal load. So what do the four reps talk about? We can only hope they're talking about peace, because "there's a lot of work, a lot of hard work." The Cowboy Junkies add a bluesy mellowness to a crazy world, and their latest creative junction is the perfect antidote for dealing with the pity and shame that occur in our beautiful jungle. Expand

    Surprisingly cohesive album, for what is essentially an album of covers (albeit covers with a theme). Highly listenable, and the Lennon song, with rapper, works better than you'd think.

  1. Reliable late-night jams that will appeal to the choir, but not the whole church.
  2. When the music peaks this is an enchanting listen, but it's unlikely to win the band any new converts.
  3. Although there will always be certain comfort in Margo Timmins' voice, her limitations are frustrating.
