Most Junkies' fans think "Trinity Sessions" was their best release, (I disagree - I think "Lay It Down" is their best) and most Junkies' fans think that with "Miles from our Home" that the Cowboy Junkies changed their sound too much and are playing music too loud and too hard. Well, granted, they DO shine the best with their acoustic ballads, but this CD isn't all that bad!! I actually was IMPRESSED that they could play this kind of music and it works!! While there are a few songs on this release that I don't listen to much, there are quite a few songs on this disc that are some of my all-time favorite Cowboy Junkie songs. "Miles from our Home" was probably a good single to release to radio, it's ok, but the 5-star songs are "Hollow as a Bone" and "Summer of Discontent". "No Birds Today", "Those Final Feet", and "Blue Guitar" are also excellent songs. Man, the piano in "Those Final Feet" is breath-takingly beautiful - wish they made sheet music for it so I could play it!! Yes, this release is a harder-sounding Cowboy Junkies (and let's face it, I'm sure GEFFEN RECORDS were putting pressure on CJ to make a release that was going to sell!), but they are such incredibly talented artists that they pull it off spendidly. This disc is worth buying even though I only listen to about half of the songs, but those half are very awesome!!
