The Trinity Session was like a whisper that cut through the noise — and it was compelling. It stood out in the midst of the flash andbombast that came to define the late 80’s. The now classic recording combined folk, blues and rock in a way that had never been heard before andwent on to sell more than a million copies. With Cowboy Junkies’ new album, All That Reckoning, the band once again gently shakes the listenerto wake up. Whether commenting on the fragile state of the world or on personal relationships, this new collection of songs encourages the listenerto take notice. It also may be the most powerful album Cowboy Junkies have yet recorded. While the music is characteristically easy to listen to,the songs on All That Reckoning are visceral. In true Junkies fashion,the gentleness is juxtaposed with rock that can be jarring.
