Vol. 3 - Sing In My Meadow: The Nomad Sessions songs Because of their name I would bet that a lot of people who don't know the group Cowboy Junkies would assume that they are a country music group. True in the beginning of their career CJ were classified as an alternative-country group. Their sound however is always evolving. Vol. 3 - Sing In My Meadow: The Nomad Sessions album for sale I have mentioned about this in my other reviews of their albums. Vol. 3 - Sing In My Meadow: The Nomad Sessions CD music With the release of their third volumn of the Nomad Series, "Sing In My Meadow", Cowboy Junkies have issued an album that is anything but country. Vol. 3 - Sing In My Meadow: The Nomad Sessions buy CD music Nowhere near that genre of music. Instead they have put out an album that many people say sounds psychedelic. After I listened to it for the first time I would agree to that assesment. In fact in many ways to me "Sing In My Meadow" sounds very '60ish psychedelic. Out of all the albums that CJ have put out in their 25+ years together this may be the most surprising sounding album and it totally works. When I first listen to the album I wasn't too impressed in the beginning by the first two songs. They are not bad just nothing special I thought. It was when the third song started, titled "3rd Crusade", that things started to change and where I thought that psychedelic sound starts kicking in. The rest of the album totally rocks. In many ways because of its sound the music in "Sing In My Meadow" reminds me of some of the experimental psychedelic rock music of the 1960's where players would let loose and let the music go where it wants to. Tracks 3 through 6 are the best songs I think on the record. I especially like "3rd Crusade" and "Late Night Radio" If track 6, "Hunted", sounds familier to you that is because it is from their fifth album,"Pale Sun,Crescent Moon" The song here thought is different then the version they have on "Pale Sun" "Hunted" is one of my favorite songs from the "Pale Sun, Crescent Moon" album but doesn't compare to their version they do in "Sing In My Meadow" This is all in all a great album. Even though I don't care too much for the first two songs there is not a weak song in the bunch. The album itself is bare bones. What I mean by that is it is just the four members of CJ along with Jeff Bird, who I call the "fifth Cowboy Junkie", on the record. No guest musicians like in the other three albums of the Nomad series appear here. Just the five members, their instruments and their inspiration to make some outstanding music. Listening to this album it is clear the group had a lot of fun working in the studio making this record. In fact from what I read they made the entire album in only four days. Don't think for one second thought that the production of the album suffers from such a short recording time in the studio. Nothing could be further from the truth. In addition to the songs the sound quality is outstanding and might be the best of the four albums in the series. Of course Margo Timmins is in fine voice as always and brother Michael is superb on the guitar. I have mentioned in the past that I think he is one of the most underrated guitarists around. Let me also though take a moment to comment on bassist Alan Anton. I feel that "Sing In My Meadow" represents possibly the best work and really shows off just what an excellant bass guitar player he is. Not that his work on the previous CJ albums were not excellant, just that Alan really brings his talent up a notch during the recording of the album. I rank this as one of the best albums that Cowboy Junkies have ever done and like "Demons", their second record in the Nomad Series, is an album I won't tire listening too. This is a record I highly recommend and bet you won't tire of listening to either.
