Editors’ Notes

k.d. lang kicked off her cowboy boots and donned black satin pumps for this stunning collection. Smoky and obsessive, Ingenue is contemporary torch music with a stalker's edge. Lang's voice has always been a thing of magic. Warm, elastic, and powerful enough to knock you over, it can reveal ocean-deep longing or hide the breaking edge of fear. On this uniformly gorgeous album, she lets loose but with calculated abandon. Whether it's the haunting pulse of "Season of Hollow Soul," the torch pop of "The Mind of Love," or crackling darkness of "Outside Myself," lang reveals subtle shades of desire, the harrowing edge of sanity, and a cavern full of soul. There's little of the androgynous cow-punk of old, leaving instead a mature chanteuse, in glorious expression of the many complexities of the heart.

When k.d. lang released her first major-label album in 1987, she caused considerable controversy within the traditional world of country music. With her vaguely campy approach, androgynous appearance, and edgy, rock-inflected music, very few observers knew what to make of her or her music, although no one questioned her considerable vocal talents. That confusion never quite dissipated over the course of her career, even when she abandoned country music for torchy adult contemporary pop in 1992 with...
