Cowboy Junkies “Nomad Series” is restful, resigned, pretty and pensive

COWBOY JUNKIES

THE WILDERNESS

THE NOMAD SERIES, VOLUME 4

“…a gorgeous new album…”
NPR All Songs Considered

“Cowboy Junkies may never step out of the shadow of their seminal The Trinity Session recording, but there’s no reason the ambitious opus of the Nomad Series couldn’t otherwise serve as their masterwork.”
Paste

“After a quarter of a century, the Junkies have perfected their oddly soothing take on folk- rock… The masterfully focused energy of The Wilderness is remarkable, considering this is the Junkies’ fourth release in 18 months.”

“This is an album for people who still think The Trinity Session stands as the Cowboy Junkies’ best recording…”
Something Else Reviews

“The Canadian quartet are making their best music since 1988’s melancholy masterpiece The Trinity Session.”
Daily Mail

“It stands as one of the best collections of original material in the Cowboy Junkies’ career, and one of the year’s unexpected pleasures”
quick before it melts

“Each word and note of this album feels so deeply percolated and thoughtfully placed that it’s hard to believe that this is the fourth record the experienced Canadian alt- country band have released in 18 months.”
Daily Telegraph

“…stands alone as another strong volume of the craft Cowboy Junkies have been honing for years.”
All Music Guide

“Consider this music a salve for the soul – restful, resigned, pretty and pensive… and yet as fragile as it is fleeting.”
