You've got to hand it to the Cowboy Junkies for hanging in there as long as they have. For a band who arguably reached their commercial peak in 1988 with the seminal TRINITY SESSIONS, they've shown an impressive degree of fortitude, continually refining their sound, album after album. Showing the empathy for sonic Americana that made fellow Canadians like the Band into roots-rock heroes, the Junkies built their reputation on dreamy, soft-focus folk-rock with country overtones. Fifteen years after they began, OPEN finds the group in a place similar to where they started from, but just different enough to justify the long, hard road they've traveled.
Gentle slices of deftly observed rootsiness are still the order of the day, but the fog lifts often enough to let some mid-tempo tunes with moderately biting guitar and forceful feel disrupt the languor. Most importantly, singer Margo Timmins still comes off like a cross between Sandy Denny and a less-Teutonic Nico; striking just the right balance between distance and emotion seems to be a consistent factor in the Cowboy Junkies sound.
