Format: Audio CD
kd lang is not the kind of artist who dreams of packing Giants Stadium, or being the center of attention as she walks the red carpet into the Grammy's (although she has won three). kd lang is the kind of artist who creates ART. This album is a true testimony to that fact. Ever single one of the songs on this album are covers, but lang makes them all her own while celebrating her Canadian sisters and brothers in song.
This entire album is inspiring, but a few tracks stick out in particular. lang's rendition of Simple could make even the most cold-hearted skeptic dream of true love. Helpless showcases lang's talent for torch and twang. Hallelujah, my personal favorite, send chills down my spine each time I listen. This version of Leonard Cohen's haunting tune is performed with gut-wrenching emotion and sincerity.
The orchestration on this album is on par with or better than Ingenue. With this album, kd has shown us once again what her love in life is...to sing for us.

Format: Audio CD
Although the songs are not new on this album, the concept is - trying to plumb the soul of the Canadian songwriter. And to offer renderings of those exquisite songs by Mitchell, Cohen, Young and some carefully selected others. Does it make sense? Yes, I think so, because I know of no attempt like it before. Yes, because the interpreter is an authority and a great Canadian singer in her own right. And yes, because these recordings sometimes reach the sublime, as is the case with Joni Mitchell's incomparable "A Case of You" - perhaps better than the original, more carefully phrased, more intense (the only other version that resonated with me was a live TV version by Diana Krall, but this is better). There are other notables - After the Gold Rush, Bird on a Wire, Hallelujah, Love is Everything. Overall, kd lang is striving for a tone, though, spare, controlled, conservatorial? A fantastic achievement, buy it.

What an exquisite voice kd lang has and what an album to showcase it! Her voice and phrasing are so seamless, so absolutely perfect, the effect is spellbinding (so much so that my spine literally tingles to listen to it!). In our age of 'processed, fast food' music, here is a truly genuine and compelling album with songs sung by one of our very finest and most talented artists.

Great Canadian song writers and wonderful interputation by one of the best voices anywhere. I bought this for 1 particular song but play it now for all of them. kd's music bridges all ages and tastes.

Absolutely amazing. Wonderful. I am so glad to have bought this one. Sometimes it takes awhile for new music to 'fit'. Not with this CD.

Not her best effort, there are a lot of Canadian song writers that K.D could have chose from, that have a more upbeat style of writing, these songs are all to laid back, to listen to the whole CD at once.

There weren't as many familiar tracks as I anticipated. But of course, there is Hallelujah, and that makes up for all the ones I don't know. k.d.'s voice is one of my all-time favourite voices in the realm of music. I would never pass up hearing her sing.
