poor lonesome cowboys
on 3 March 2004
Wistfulness probably doesn't get more understated, or more gut-wrenching, than this. Margo Timmons whispers of love and loss over distinctly low-fi arrangements, and for a while it's all deceptively easy listening. Actually, you're probably thinking this could waft around in the background at your next dinner party as the guests are sipping their Jacob's Creek.
And then WHAM! the sheer despair lyrics like "Lonely Sinking Feeling" hits you and you're choking on your wine. Cowboy Junkie's distinctly urban take on alt-country is not lounge music after all - slowly, it envelopes you in The Bluuueees...
