5.0 out of 5 stars new to k d lang ? immerse yourself here..., 28 Jun 2005
This review is from: Hymns Of The 49th Parallel (Audio CD)
Something of a return to form for kd lang, this is her best since ingenue, or even her best to date. her voice and expression are fantastic, she is in excellent form, this is a moving album of songs from a diverse range of quality canadian songwriters, some well known, others less so.
Its an album that needs to be appreciated on a decent music system - at least some of the time - to appreciate the depth, feeling, and sheer musicianship. And yet, yes you can play it as background / easylistening while you get on with your day or if you are entertaining friends.
It's hard to pick a favourite, but for me After the goldrush, Valley, Helpless, and Love is Everything are the standout tracks.
Those reviewers who are weary of the nth cover version of hallelujah have a point - ys, k d lang could/should have chosen less familiar songs from leonard cohen's oeuvre - but hey it still sounds good.
5 stars ... and it deserves a far, far wider audience that it has had to date!
