All That Reckoning is an album by the Canadian alt-country band Cowboy Junkies, released in 2018. The album features eleven new songs to focus on "empty hearts, empty nests, lost paths, lost lives, and all the reckoning that brings about the end of things, and the beginnings of something else. [The] songs are about reckoning on a personal level and reckoning on a social level," as stated by Michael Timmins.[1]

Album development

The Junkies last recorded an album together in 2012, the final album of their Nomad series. Since then they worked on different projects, such as The Kennedy Suite, and other things, and just remained busy. According to Michael Timmins, they had released plenty of albums, and in the current business climate, the reasoning for releasing more music became more for the art than other factors. One "can get that part of one's personality massaged by doing live shows and small projects. A whole album is a lot of work. You sort of begin to think, 'Does anybody care anymore?' But it's hard for us to think about singles or whatever format people are purporting to be the new way of putting out music. So if we're going to record, for us, it's going to be an album."[18]

Timmins accumulated songs that reached into the personal and political sides, songs that try to figure out where people are headed in the world, where society is heading, what the end results may look like. According to Michael Timmns, "There's a lot of pressures and a lot of crumbling of institutions, very little foundation to put one's feet on again, especially at an older age. You sort of expect things to be there and realize, 'My God, what I thought was a standard, whether it be an institution or a way of dealing with people in our society, is disappearing.'".[18] After accumulating the songs, it was time to shape them artistically, and the Junkies went to their home studio to hammer All That Reckoning into shape.[18] The poetry of William Blake provided inspiration for some of the songs, specifically, "The Angel" inspired "Mountain Stream", and "The Tyger" inspired "Missing Children".[6] The music that Michael Timmins produces has a lot of input from the band these days. The songwriting part is Michael, a guitar, and solitude. After creating the lyrics, Michael mixes in the other band members voices and instruments to create the Junkie sound. Anton would display some elaborate bass lines, which Michael would write songs around, and then Margo and Peter would add her voice and his drums and fill out the songs. Then the songs would be played live before recording them, to clean up and round off the songs.[19]

Michael Timmins goal when writing the album was to not just write about the current politics of the day, because that risks becoming irrelevant a few years later. The album has an internal dialogue, showing a reflection of the exterior world on the interior world and vice versa. In addition, the Junkies aimed to avoid a hard viewpoint, to not push a view, so as to include a large spectrum of viewpoints as held by their audience. One example of the album's internal and external voice is the two versions of the album's title track "All That Reckoning Part 1" and "All That Reckoning Part 2", with the first part displaying an unspoken dread of a relationship in crisis, and the second part a jagged psychedelic song full of anger. According to Michael Timmins, "[The songs] kind of fed into the title — the way we relate to each other, and the personal and the social — so it made sense in a high-concept way. But in a very basic way, we just liked the way both of them put the song across."[20]

All That Reckoning

Cowboy Junkies auf Wikipedia (oder andere Quellen):

Die Cowboy Junkies sind eine kanadische Band. Sie gelten als eine stilbildende Band des Alternative Country und verbinden Elemente von Indie-Rock, Blues, Folk und Country-Musik.


Die Band formierte sich 1985 in Toronto. Gründungsmitglieder sind die Geschwister Michael (* 1959), Peter (* 1965) und Margo (* 1961) Timmins sowie Alan Anton (* 1959 als Alan Alizojvodic), der bereits zuvor mit Michael Timmins in anderen Bands gespielt hatte.

Ihr Debütalbum Whites Off Earth Now!! enthielt überwiegend Coverversionen, von Lightnin’ Hopkins, Bruce Springsteen, Robert Johnson, John Lee Hooker und Big Joe Williams. Lediglich der Song Take Me wurde von Margo und Michael Timmins geschrieben. Das Album wurde 1986 in einer Garage aufgenommen und über das eigene Label Latent Recordings vertrieben.

Das zweite Album The Trinity Session von 1988 ist bis heute das bekannteste der Band. Es wurde am 27. November 1987 in einer 14-stündigen Session mit einem einzigen Mikrofon in der Kirche Church of the Holy Trinity in Toronto aufgenommen. Neben sechs Eigenkompositionen finden sich darauf u. a. Coverversionen von Sweet Jane (Lou Reed) und I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry (Hank Williams). Der Erfolg dieses Albums brachte den Cowboy Junkies 1989 einen Plattenvertrag mit RCA Records ein. Insgesamt wurden davon über 1,5 Millionen Exemplare verkauft.

1990 folgte das Album The Caution Horses und eine Tournee zusammen mit Townes Van Zandt. Dieser schrieb für die Band den Song Cowboy Junkies Lament, wofür Michael Timmins sich mit Townes' Blues revanchierte. Beide Songs finden sich auf dem 1992 erschienenen Album Black Eyed Man. Nach dem Album Pale Sun Crescent Moon (1993) wechselte die Band von RCA zu Geffen Records und brachte 1996 das Album Lay It Down heraus. Es ist das erste, das ausschließlich Eigenkompositionen enthält. Nach Veröffentlichung des Albums Miles from Our Home (1998) endete der Vertrag mit Geffen Records. Das nächste Album Open wurde 2001 wieder vom eigenen Label Latent Recordings herausgebracht.

Zum zwanzigjährigen Jubiläum von The Trinity Session erschien Trinity Revisited 2007 als Album und Dokumentarfilm. Aufgenommen am Ort der Originalaufnahme, sind diesmal Natalie Merchant, Ryan Adams und Vic Chesnutt als Gastsänger dabei.

Zum dreißigjährigen Bandjubiläum erschien 2015 eine 4CD-Box unter dem Titel Notes Falling Slow, die aus remastered Versionen der Alben One Soul Now, Early 21st Century Blues, At the End of Paths Taken (2004–2007), sowie einer Bonus-CD mit einer Sammlung von auf diesen Alben nicht verwendeten Aufnahmen besteht.
