5.0 out of 5 stars k d kicked butt 12 years ago September 15, 1999
Format:Audio CD
My how time flies. It's hard to believe that this recording is 12 years old now, but I just wore out my cassette and had to order the CD.
These recordings come from a time when k d was much more country, but it's country that makes you want to move your feet! The voice is the same, strong, crystalline force of nature that we know and love. I highly recommend this CD for any fans of Ms. Lang's.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great CD November 15, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I don't often write reviews, but I just loved this CD. K.D. Lang has a powerful voice but it is obvious she had a lot of fun making Angel with a Lariat. Highly recommend it for those who love country..and K.D. Lang.

3.0 out of 5 stars Square peg to 80s country's round hole March 18, 2005
Format:Audio CD
It's immediately easy to see why Canadian K.D. Lang didn't "make it" with country radio in the States when this released.

As of 1987, country radio was predominantly a sort of acoustic based pop with some occasional banjo or steel guitar. "Turn Me Round" is a difficult to categorize stew of rock guitar, banjo and fiddle, with hillbilly whoops. The fact that it included a tribute to something as passe as square dancing was anathema to the "Urban Cowboy" attitude running country radio. This isn't to say there's anything WRONG with this CD: there was something wrong with radio.

Lang and her band the Reclines (named after her musical hero Patsy Cline) make music here that respects country's traditional sounds while simultaneously making ironic fun of them and folding in other influences from doo-wop to rock, coupling it with intelligently crafted lyrics. In fact, the writing is probably TOO intelligent for mass consumption: When's the last time you heard someone make a road song that used malnutrition as a metaphor for homesickness? ("Diet of Strange Places")

HIGHLIGHTS:
The kinetic "Turn Me Round" gets things off to a real bang. "Diet of Strange Places" is a clever road song (a country take on Bob Seger's "Turn the Page") and "Got the Bull by the Horns" is a zippy celebration of the Don Juanita life (Well, do YOU have a feminine expression for 'ladie's man'?) "Rose Garden" is a very modern sounding take on the Lynn Anderson smash. "Tune into my Wave" is a clever plea for some different driving music. She also turns in an impassioned cover of country classic "Three Cigarettes in an Ashtray".

4.0 out of 5 stars One toe-tappin' diddy! April 29, 2000
Format:Audio CD
It'd remarkable how JD has changed styles over the years. But this is still one of the best for her. Very energetic and diverse with the cajun sounds of "Got the bull by the horns", the danceable Lynn Anderson remake of "Rose Garden", the hip-country "Tune into my wave"and "High time...", the nostalgic country feel of "Diet of strange places", and the waltz-style of "Three cigarettes...". This would have made Patsy happy! Note: the Reclines are named after her! Unfortunately this style came 10 years too early. Given a gorgeous face and a bare belly button KD could have locked horns with Shania with this CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great album!!! July 6, 2014
Format:Audio CD
This is a terrific album, one of my favorites, (and I don't particularly like country!)
Many of the songs are true "rockabilly" and there are also a couple of beautiful ballads.
The mix of songs flows perfectly on the whole track.
k.d. lang has such an incredible voice, and these songs showcase her amazing talent.
This album ALWAYS makes me happy when I listen to it, which is very frequently.
I recommend this album VERY highly!
