Synopsis

Amazon.com
Watershed, K.D. Lang?s second Nonesuch album, indeed represents a significant juncture in her 25-year career as a recording artist-a collection of eleven new original songs produced, for the first time, by Lang herself. As with any challenge she?s met in her unparalleled career, lang is a natural behind the boards in the studio. Watershed has an intimate feel and a sophisticated sound that highlights the warmth in Lang?s voice, the maturity of her songwriting and the simple beauty of her arrangements. The Grammy Award-winning artist draws on her wealth of experience with an impressively wide range of genres to fashion a revealing portrait of the artist as she is right now. As Lang explains, "Watershed is like a culmination of everything I?ve done ? there?s a little bit of jazz, a little country, a little of the Ingénue sound, a little Brazilian touch. It really feels like the way I hear music, this mash-up of genres, and I think it reflects all the styles that have preceded this in my catalogue." K.D. Lang Photos More from K.D. Lang

CD Reviews

Kd lang SIMPLY AMAZING
John T. Borek | Grand Rapids, MI United States | 02/08/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Finally, a new kd lang album, and one she wrote and produced herself. "Watershed" is like back to the good old days when she was releasing her good music. This reminds me of "All You Can Eat" and "Absolute Torch and Twang", her finest. And it's great to see her writing again with Ben Mink after all these years. It's a beautiful album from an incredible voice. Every time I listen to this CD I like it more and more, it will grow on you. And that's a sign of great music, it's not instant, but takes its time to draw you in and then you're hooked. I love kd lang and this is as good as it gets. It's hard to decide what I'd like to hear next from her, an album of great covers or old standards or more of this same kind. Either way it doesn't matter, as long as we don't have to wait this long again."
Coming home

"Kd has come back home.That is to write gorgeous songs such as I Dream of Spring and Close Your Eyes with pal Ben Mink.We fans have waited for such a complete album for long.So embark and dream along with the unique Kathryn.Throughout the journey,you will feel like you are in a coffee shop surrounded by country,pop and jazz musicians,all of them trying to accompany this unparallel voice that thrives on lows and ride triumphantly on highs.Bon voyage!"
I wouldn't have thought she'd ever outdo Drag, but...
Tom Sanders | Lansing, Mi United States | 02/07/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"From the fabulous first notes of the album to the finish there isn't a mis-step. This is her strongest outing to date and that's an amazing thing to say. This is one of the great albums ever. I haven't heard anything this great since discovering Jake Shimabukuru's Gently Weeps or hearing Tish Hinjosa sing Estrellita.
It doesn't get any better than this...just different."
