Cowboy Junkies: Horse Latitudes

Chris Roberts, Melody Maker, 24 February 1990

"MOST OF THE SONGS, there's a grain of hope in there. The characters are always striving for something else. They're in a situation which is not necessarily good, but they're not saying this is the end of it and I'm gonna kill myself now."

It's very close though.

"Yes, it's close."
