For an album of failures you will be impressed, it has some glorious moments. Some of the songs are just to nice or trite to be on a real "junkies" release, they seem to miss the depth of other releases. However there is some merit in that, Michael Timmins songs are often wonderful in a dark way, a little bit of light heartedness never hurt anyone. I disagree with the amazon reviewer though; although many of the songs probably did come from an early period some obviously came later and have the "dirty feedback and slide" they can now be associated with, which i love. Additionally i suspect one of the tracks was meant for a Gram Parsons tribute album but was rejected in favour of a far more original re-working. Still all in all for an album of out-takes i loved it and would recommend it but only to fans. If you have never heard the Cowboy Junkies before and are thinking of an album as a taster buy "black eyed man", "Lay it down" or "pale sun crescent moon" which are more representative
