Album of the Day
With a distinctive look and vocals that drew comparisons to Patsy Cline, k.d. lang emerged in the mid-1980s as one of Canada's greatest country singers. By the time of 1992's INGENUE, she'd increased the ratio of torch to twang in her music, and the move toward adult contemporary pop proved hugely successful; the Sire collection went double-platinum. Its ten alluring originals include “The Mind of Love,” “Miss Chatelaine” and signature song “Constant Craving,” which earned lang a Grammy for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance. Produced with longtime collaborators Ben Mink and Greg Penny, INGENUE offers a blend of craft, intelligence and simmering emotions that listeners will constantly crave, and we'll give the set another spin now to wish k.d. lang a happy birthday.
