Editorial Reviews

Nonesuch Records releases k.d. lang and the Siss Boom Bang's Sing it Loud on April 12, 2011. Produced by lang and Joe Pisapia, it is the award-winning singer-songwriter's first record made entirely with a band of her own since the pair of albums with the Reclines that launched her groundbreaking career over 20 years ago.
This collection of songs reflects the organic, collaborative nature of the sessions, which took place at Pisapia's Middletree Studios in Nashville. Many of the songs were recorded live in the studio and that energy is palpable. The lead single "I Confess" is one of three songs lang penned with keyboardist Daniel Clarke and Joshua Grange, who plays baritone guitar and dobro. In addition to the original material, Sing it Loud includes a striking version of Talking Heads' "Heaven." Pisapia, who plays numerous instruments and serves as the band's musical director, contributed the title track and co-wrote five songs with lang. Bassist Lex Price (Mindy Smith, Peter Bradley Adams) and drummer/percussionist Fred Eltringham (The Wallflowers) complete the lineup.
Sing it Loud is lang's first studio album since 2008's Watershed, which debuted in the Top 10 of the Billboard 200. In 2010, she marked the 25th anniversary of her recording debut with Recollection, a career retrospective.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Although k.d. lang came out of the Canadian country tradition, she broke the mold with her hit album "Ingénue" in 1992, and she's gone her own way ever since. She has a voice like no one else. The moment she begins to sing, a spell of impossibly romantic longing is cast. "Sing It Loud," a new album of original ballads, all but two of them written or co-written by lang herself, is the epitome of her emotive style, the quintessence of desperate, delirious passion. It's an instant classic.

k.d.'s debt to the heartbreaking ballads of Roy Orbison is evident on the first track, "I Confess," with its insistent drums, lonely steel guitar, and wall-of-sound backing, but she puts her own stamp on it and on each of the songs that follow. "A Sleep with No Dreaming" and "The Water's Edge" are quieter and even more tender and plaintive, but the mood shifts on the fourth cut, "Perfect Word." Suffused with a Muscle Shoals soulfulness, it's one of my favorite numbers on the disc. The lyrics are simple and direct, and a steel guitar solo suits it perfectly. lang can bring an edge to her voice that calls to mind Dusty Springfield, a tough tone that carries over to "Sugar Buzz," in which she and her band really let loose.

Up next is the title track, with banjo accompaniment that reminds us of k.d.'s country roots. The country sound is even more pronounced on "Inglewood," introduced by an acoustic guitar and joined by piano and a gently wailing guitar. "Habit of Mind" is an anthem with a soaring chorus, a second fave of mine in which banjo and guitar again play important parts. The CD concludes with a fine cover of Talking Heads' "Heaven" and another superb anthem, "Sorrow Nevermore.

This reviewer fondly remembers k d when she tooled around the Strathcona hood of Vancouver, Canada in her 1963 powder blue Mercury with the slanted rear window that lowered. Wide as a whale, this living room on wheels announced her presence in between world tours. In her early days during gigs at the Commodore Ballroom, she was fond of having a go go dancer on stage with her. Pure kitschy art! Sadly, kathy dawn left the hood years ago for the far flung metropolis of Los Angeles. In the intervening years she delved into pop standards, and melodramatic orchestrated nods to fellow Canadian songwriters. Lang's expanded musical directions broadened her commercial appeal for sure, but after her Invincible Summer recording, her previously prolific song writing seemed to run dry.

I confess wondering if k d would ever return to her roots and what made her so exciting and relevant in the first place. In the opening track of her new recording, "Sing it Loud" with her new kick ass band, Siss Boom Bang, in a collaboration with fellow band mates, she muses, "now I know the letting go was my mistake."

While touring to promote her last album, "Watershed" lang found herself gravitating toward country songs during sound check. After a chance backstage meeting in Nashville with guitarist and songwriter Joe Pisapia, she knew she had met a kindred spirit to co-write the return to the musical territory that kick started her career.

In "Habit of Mind," lang reflects, "I've lost my edge, It's left the building like Elvis, I guess.

(A deluxe version of the album with four additional tracks is available on lang's official Web site.)

k.d. lang has earned the rare right to record exactly the material she wants, how she wants, and still expect an audience, and "Sing It Loud" reflects that with its self-assured, but often self-indulgent, songcraft - a formula that is ultimately winning due to her charisma and raw talent.

Sharp-edged hooks don't run aplenty, so the songs do not generally demand individual attention, but they also sparkle with spotless polish, the result of an obviously meticulous attention to detail that makes the album play highly satisfyingly.

That lang has recorded the album she wanted shows in the details. "Sing It Loud" is the kind of record a musician makes for his or herself, which means it will surely delight her most devoted but divide those who appreciate her on a more selective basis.

The songs are co-written with Joe Pisapia, who left his seven-year tenure with Guster to join lang in the studio and on the road. Selections such as the off-kilter, idiosyncratic "Sugar Buzz" and the peace-loving anthem "Perfect Word," which makes sweeping, grand use of the elastic fireball that is lang's voice, make the source of his motivation to work with her quite clear. Their talents gel well, and with lang's miraculous pipes as Pisapia's muse the results are purposeful and passionate.

Whether the mood is thoughtful and considered (the ruminative "Heaven," "Sing It Loud," "Habit of Mind"), playfully romantic ("Inglewood," the soulful opener "I Confess") or cheerfully optimistic ("Sorrow Nevermore"), the music is consistently comfortable and restrained - ideal for an outdoor concert in late summer.
