    [The Trinity Session was] An alt-folk classic--and this might be one too. [Aug 2018, p.93]

    This is another impressive notch in the group’s expansive catalog belt and a further illustration that their classy, classic talents show no signs of dissipating as they settle into middle age.

    If you lost touch with Cowboy Junkies some time ago, perhaps taking their unhurried grandeur for granted, All That Reckoning presents a brave, beautiful and timely opportunity to pick up the thread. [Sep 2018, p.24]

    With the release of their 16th album, All That Reckoning, the Toronto group craft something simple, passionate and visceral.

    All That Reckoning is a smart, compelling set of songs from a group that hasn't run out of things to say or the ability to say them with eloquence.

    Musically, too, there are tempestuous moments (Missing Children; Sing Me a Song), but the quartet only soar when the lights are dimmed and ambience takes precedence over energy.

Songs for love, for forgiveness, for decisions, for life, for joy, for politics, for society.

    If you asked what the Cowboy Junkies where doing in 2018. I guess the answer would be still making classic music.

    Very much the grower, this is a melodically understated n' atmosphere-centric style.

The only other CJ album I've listened to is 'The Trinity Sessions' and I have to say despite this being a more mature/polished affair befitting an act this deep into their career I might still consider this at least the equal of that early cult classic nonetheless.
