Favorite Cowboy Junkies?
I will be checking it all out.  I've heard the Trinity Sessions and while it is sonically fantastic I thought the pace of the album overall a little slow for me.  I will listen again.  Apparently, fuzztone is not a fan?  Some strange peoplecomment...

Possible cause of harsh mids?
Thanks for the replies, gents.  Certainly only on a few albums so far.  Not sibilance per se, but more of a distortion on peaks in the mid band - guitars, keyboards, etc.  Bass and treble not an issue.  For example, another one that does it is an ...
