My socially instilled biases kept me from ever giving K.D. Lang's music a listen. Then I watched the video; Who wrote that music?! Who sang that music?! It was K.D. Lang. Now I understand. She wrote some incredibly beautiful music for this movie. The quality of the album is consistent from track to track. It's a clear 5 stars. I can't really understand anyone giving it less.

Although this album was released one year after K.D.'s commercial breakthrough "Ingenue", it functions as a sort of link between the country-pop of "Shadowland" and the fragile singer/songwriter material of her latter-day work. K.D.'s emotive and uplifting music has always seemed to be tailor-made for road movies, love stories and stuff where young people discover 'the red side of life', and so this album was commissioned as a soundtrack to the seldom-seen movie of the same name. I haven't seen the film, but according to other people it must be a total disappointment with a poor story and nothing really going on. It also caused this soundtrack to sell very poorly, so there's also a cheap cut-out edition of this album available at amazon.com. "Even cowgirls.." is quite a bit different to K.D.'s other albums because it's constructed as a series of short instrumentals and incidental mood music which are held together by more carefully formed and composed tracks like "Lifted by love" and "In perfect dreams". Generally, there's nothing here which is as brilliant as singles like "Constant craving", but this albums seems to be considerably more experimental and multi-dimensional than much of K.D.'s other work. K.D. and her long-time musical collaborator Ben Mink (he has recently worked with Rush singer/bass player Geddy Lee for the album "My favorite headache") haven't abandoned the stylish late-night pop of "Ingenue" and the smoky atmosphere, they've just built around it and come up with a variety of interesting instrumental touches which further enhace the sonic palette. Mink also plays guitars and strings on nearly all tracks. "Just keep me.." opens the album, and while K.D.Read more ›

I pull this out every year or so and give it a good play. Her voice is as beautiful as ever but the soundtrack has the added attraction of variety. I just feel like I'm riding over the plains on horseback through the whole thing. Very relaxing and beautiful. I think if you like kd lang at all, you will appreciate this very much.

Format: Audio CD
My appreciation for EVEN COWGIRLS GET THE BLUES is based mainly on the novel by Tom Robbins. The first song, `Just Keep Me Moving' is based on the theme of hitchhiking. Sissy Hankshaw, played by Uma Thurman in the movie with extended thumbs, is a champion hitchhiker. "Moving" and "freedom" form the theme and the feeling of the music. It was easy to be a fan of the book, and the CD might be easier to appreciate if it included the words of the songs instead of its brief description of events at the Countess's Rubber Rose Ranch without mentioning the whooping cranes who fail to finish their migration after the cowgirls hook them on psychedelics. The movie was a failure because the attempt to build creative tension for a climax based on a shootout between cowgirls and federal agents did not live up to the low standards of credibility usually expected for a Hollywood western. But allowing a romantic team like k.d. lang and Ben Mink to compose the music for the film was brilliant.

The CD gets to track 8, `Lifted By Love,' before the line "I long to be lifted" combines all the "lifted high, carried by ..." images of the film into a musical statement. Then track 9 is an `Overture.' Violin coming out of nowhere leads into orchestration of all the themes used in previous track titles like `Myth,' `Apogee,' (only 37 seconds) and `Virtual Vortex' (44 seconds). Then a minute waltz precedes track eleven, "In Perfect Dreams."

In perfect dreams, you can fly, it seems.

Next, `Curious Soul Astray' pictures life as a child would, wanting it all.

Loving and laughing and longing to fall

A curious soul astray.

I ran for the wisdom and glory

Away, away, I ran

`Ride of Bonanza Jellybean' is a bit rocky.

"Hush Sweet Lover" is k.d. lang at her seductive, sultry best. If the song didn't even had words, you could still feel her vulnerability. But alas, it does, which makes it all the sweeter. Another gem would be the opening track, which is just a fun way to get the whole thing started. Within the rest of it, there are moments ("Lifted By Love" and "In Perfect Dreams"), but bear in mind this is a soundtrack CD, so not every song is meant to leave you in mesmerized a la "Get Some", "Constant Craving" or "Trail of Broken Hearts."

As a kd fan, I enjoy the fact that this collection offers a variety of sounds for ms.lang to use. Country twangs, danceable tracks, polka, luxurious torch numbers and howling women are featured on this recording. However this feels more incomplete than a standard kd lang album, sort of like ordering creme brulee, eating it and somehow wanting more. Enjoy the oh-so-groovey "Just Keep Me Moving" and the train-like feel of "Lifted By Love".
