5.0 out of 5 stars A lovely easy listening album, 10 Aug. 2004
This review is from: Hymns Of The 49th Parallel (Audio CD)
At first I wasn't sure about this album, but after the 2nd play I found myself loving it. It is a very "quiet" album compared to other k.d. albums. None of the songs exactly punch out like "Constant Craving" or "Summerfling" did from her original work or like "Till The Heart Caves In" or "Crying" from her covers, but it therefore produces a very mellow, easy listening CD.
Having not been familiar with all the songs beforehand I was able to judge each song on its merit and how they sounded to me fresh. In some ways it's probably an advantage having not heard the songs before.
How can you fault k.d.?? There is no one else around today with such a clear voice and beautiful way of singing.
From the lovely "Helpless" to "Hallelujah" and the wonderful "The Valley", this is a great collection of songs that k.d. has covered and interpreted nicely!
If you buy this album and do nothing but sit back and compare the songs with the original versions then you may not find it enjoyable, as I have heard a few people grumble about. All I can say is, take the album on its merit and let the relaxing overtones and sultry, perfect voice of k.d. take you on a journey through this lovely CD.
