Can't say I was ever a big fan of ms.lang. Admired it of course, what she was doing and the quality of her voice but now, years later I see her in her new "guise" and I think its wonderful. kd lang as a band person, band member, band leader and it works, against odds probably, as her voice is so brilliant that it's always likely to be the main thing, the solo thing but in this instance it's, to my ears anyway, a real band!!And that's great, and not taking in any way whatsoever from lang's enormous vocal talent. I was attracted to the album by the bands Jools Holland appearance, blown away and the album does not disappoint. The band members are all very present. I like all songs but stand-outs are, so far.... The Water's Edge and The Perfect Word and I love the production on Sugar Buzz...Brave steps with drum sounds etc...Overall a great album...Nice to hear Orbison is still around too... Eugene Brosnan
