I love this album. It was among the first batch of cds I ever bought (thank you Columbia House!) and have probably played it over 1000 times and I look forward to hearing it at least 1000 more. k.d. lang has an incredible vocal instrument. First arriving on the scene as a "new" Patsy Cline, she rose to prominence in country circles (despite hailing from Canada). With this album, she (mostly) left her torch and twang behind to prove herself a force in the adult contemporary market. And with the hit "Constant Craving", she did just that and found, in this listener, a lifelong fan. Vocally, her tone is so pure. She bends notes to her will, coaxing emotion out of words and phrases with seeming ease. When she sings of pain, it is palpable. When she sings of joy, it is infectious. When she sings of longing, it is intense. This particular collection of songs shows a range that some of her other albums don't. (I own them all, but this is the one I come back to most.) From the bouncy, coquettish Ms. Chatelaine (a cheeky flip-side to her normally butch persona) to the spare, haunting Tears of Love's Recall, she runs the gamut of a true chanteuse's repertoire. k.d. lang is a true musical artist. 5 stars for me; no hesitation.

I had this on tape in 1992. I bought it because "Constant Craving" was such a captivatingly cool song that I wanted more... and was sorely disappointed by the album. I can say that generally, the laidback chic of Ingenue is no place for a 17-year-old. But even now, I don't feel like I'm really in the hipster wine mom demographic that would get the most out of this. But just imagine having a relaxing evening in your renovated villa, pulling up a kitchen stool, pouring a glass of pinot gris and enjoying the heck out of this classy album. Still, "Constant Craving" is a tune.

I should start by saying that this kind of low key adult contemporary music with the occasional country twang is absolutely not my thing. Not that I hate it. It just would never occur to me to listen to it. But I'll do my best. The first thing to note is that k.d. lang is an excellent singer. She has a warm timbre, tremendous vocal control, perfect pitch, and uses vibrato effectively (faithful readers will know this is one of my bugbears). The second thing is that the arrangements by lang, Ben Mink and Greg Penny are extraordinarily detailed, subtle, and sonically pleasant. That leaves the songs themselves. Perhaps Ingenue is the sort of album that requires several listens for the songs to sink in. While pleasant enough to listen to, nothing much seems to stick in my reptilian brain. That is evidently not what lang was going for, but still, if you're going to do what is essentially an album of pop songs, shouldn't there be some monster hooks, either instrumental, melodic or both? Maybe it's not fair, but that's my opinion and I'm sticking to it.

A go big or go home effort that's swelling - nay, engorged - with wistful orchestration. Occasionally the melodies are strong enough to carry that weight. The Mind of Love sounds timeless before its 3:48 are up, swooning like a Joan Fontaine character, Miss Chatelaine goes full throwback with its accordion, and the muscular Spanish-guitar-I-think on Still Thrives This Love (silly title) brilliantly complements Lang's voice, which always holds up. But too often the writing, melodies or both don't, and collapse under the weight of their decoration. A shame, because there's so much promise here.

this is exciting to me because this is the year I graduated from high school, she looked so different and cool and I knew her from country music <> this second song reminds me of Anne Murray (if you don't know her, "Could I have this dance" was a fave in middle school); i just LOVE crooners and especially as an adult hearing her sing love songs to a woman is so inspiring - she was doing that in the 80s and 90s when that just wasn't done but she made it seem so commonplace - BRAVO, KD!; I also liked her name a lot because it sounds like Katy but is just initials :) <> Miss Chatelaine has a resort music style that reminds me of Barry Manilow's Copacabana which I like <> Outside Myself sounds like it should have been in a James Bond movie <> I also really like the music that Spotify chose based on this album :)

I'm new to lang's discography, but as far as I can tell the arc within this album is a recursive version of the album's place in it. We move away from country instrumentation, while the sound palette and the voice remain lush. I can't help but think it would be a better album if it was more explicitly country. At the same time, the first couple tracks are where I felt most strongly that I was listening to standard adult contemporary. Perhaps that's still true, but only mostly.

I remember listening to some k.d. lang songs back in the 90s; liked her then, like her now, although it's been a long time since I've listened to her music. What a voice, and a really good writer, but it can get a little too -- not sure what the phrase is, maybe "Big Band ballad style" -- for me. 'Constant Craving' is great.

This album made very pleasant background listening as I was making dinner last night. It never insisted too too much on being more than background music, but there was enough to twist my ear that I figured - sure, maybe I could see what it’s going for.

A lot of the songs on this album sound familiar even though I’m sure that I’ve never heard them before. They’re just really good songs and I get good vibes from them. I love the instrumentation especially the clarinet on Still Thrives This Love. The accordion is also interesting and I like it. Honestly almost everything about this album is great. Not quite great enough to be a 10 because it’s not that mind blowing but it’s still a really solid album. Season of Hollow Soul reminds me of ABBA for some reason but overall this album does sound like it’s from the 90s but aged will. Favorite songs: Save Me, The Mind of Love, Miss Chatelaine, Wash Me Clean, Still Thrives This Love, Season of Hollow Soul, Outside Myself, Constant Craving Decent 9/10

hmm. am i going to like this? nice voice. i thiiiink its a woman. yeah it is. this first song is nice but im afraid i might get bored quick. lets see. i love the vibe provided by whatever instrument it is playing at 2:32. her voice reminds me of someone but i cant place it. aw this sounds so nice but im bored :( why am i like this lol. okay i take that back i got into it after a bit and my mood now matches this album lol. miss chatelaine: this song is making me so happy i want to cry lol. wash me clean: her voice sounds so full (?) and comforting :( i teared up. lmao. "shadows now curtain the moon, but faith swears it will shine again soon." idk why i got so into this. typically i wouldnt like this type of music i think. im done and i feel so exposed lol. i feel like i just finished up a long crying session xd anyways uhm i only processed about 1% of this album and i need to listen to it 99 more times to get better acquainted with it. starting my first replay as i finish writing this. saying that i love this album is putting it lightly :)) <3

It’s easy to like an artist that saves the hit to the very end. “Constant Craving” is a great song, and the lead-up is languid, then charming, then stylish, then smooth – every track thoughtfully conceived (merging jazzy torch songs with country textures) and executed with verve and polish, the singing assured and accomplished, the playing distinctive and adroit. Well done, k.d.

A genuine treat, listening to k.d. lang. One of Canada's finest singers, we get a nice array of country, singer/songwriter, and tremendous songwriting to back it up. I just find it to be a bit unengaging sometimes, like Lang doesn't want to do too much. Which is fine, but leaves me not yearning to relisten again. A real pity, if you ask me.

On Lang's second solo record, her transformation from a goofy country and western singer with her band, The Reclines to a cabaret-style, crooner pop singer was complete. Gone are the wire glasses and long skirts and colourful dresses to be replaced with a androgynous look with a boyish hair cut and tailored suit jackets. In some ways I preferred her cowpunk phase, but I was never a fan of Lang in either persona. She does have a great voice and she puts it to maximum use on this album which probably contains some of her best known songs. Not really my taste, but it's listenable and she deserves the accolades and awards from this album.

k.d. has a beautiful voice, she packs every note to the brim with emotion and her delivery is effortlessly proficient. While Constant Craving is the obvious standout track, the rest just feels like endless buildup to it. Tonally and thematically this album is too homogenous throughout, it gets tired fast. And that's probably why Constant Craving was so successful, it's the only song that stops me in my tracks. It is vibrant, it has motion and life. Has always been.

Having never knowingly listened to kd lang, I didn't quite know what to expect - but it wasn't this. From what I'd read, I was expecting something more countrified, but in the main this is quite syrupy pop rock. A couple of numbers land, and it must be said that lang has a remarkable voice - but it can't carry a collection of unimaginative, safe arrangements. A little more grit in the oyster would've benefited this album. Still, if you're after a smooth, well-executed song cycle with a splash of the prairie and a a few neat chord progressions, you could do a lot worse than Ingenue.

Season of Hollow Soul and Constant Craving I like. And there's that early 90's VH1 vibe to all of this that I find some kind of comfort in. Something how I don't see how this could possibly be a hit these days. It's nostalgia, I guess, for a thread of music that I wasn't very into at the time but still made up a percentage of the atmosphere. Still, I don't get very wrapped up in the songs. Pleasant to have on in the background, but not something I'd put on a lot.

I really don’t have much to say about k.d. lang. (Any relation to Brian Lang?) She has a nice voice, but it’s all so subdued. I don’t even have the right language to talk about the style of this album, I think. I will echo, though, that the hit single “Constant Craving” sounds quite different from the rest of the record. Mostly I was bored by “Ingenue,” nothing here grabbed my attention. It was capably made, and inoffensive, but didn’t stand out. I feel like there are a thousand other albums out there that sound much like this one without the same level of attention.

Which cruise line is right for you? Princess Cruises is supposed to be nice. I've gone on Norwegian when my rich grandmother paid for all of us to take a cruise for Christmas, and it is top-notch - that I can say that from personal experience. Carnival? - meh, I don't do keg stands or have little kids anymore but there was a time in my life that would've fit. I think your best chances of running in to K.D. Lang would be on Norwegian cruise lines. It's the cruise line for old people with lotsa money and a taste for vanilla. I bet she's the house music on all Norwegian cruises and probably performs for the young gray hairs at least once a week. I wonder how they get her from ship to ship. Or if she has to disembark, embark the way that normal passengers do. I would expect that from Wilson-Phillips, but not sure about the KDL. I found Ingenue perfect for the early '90s., KDL had some serious fashion style back then, yes she did. Her music right on par with a Norwegian cruise, very adequate on Gram's dime, but nothing you'd pay extra for. Regardless, after a long year quarrantining things are looking up and I'm sure there are a lot of excited people ready to be confined to a boat in hopes of running into the KDL. For me though, it's more likely you'd find me on a Carnival cruise binge drinking, avoiding my kids and constantly craving for solid ground than listening to this album again.

Pleasantly surprised with this album. Didn’t think it was overall great but it had a nice tone, the singers voice is soothing and sounds wonderful. As for the songs they didn’t impress me but they sounded nice. 5.6/10

You can draw a line through Vera Lynn then Shirley Bassey to arrive at k.d.lang. From the 'big note' school of lounge room crooning. I tried to like it, but it's not for me. Constant Craving was OK for the first 70 million plays, but is just tiresome now.

This is too smooth for my tastes. Very competent but mostly forgettable.

Really solid voice, but not a fan of this kinda cabaret muzak stuff. Feels like the soundtrack to pretending to be artsy. Constant craving (the only song I'd heard before) is the most upbeat by a mile, the rest really subdued. 2/5.

I was in a calm mood, so this was clicking some. Its a bit country-ish with the steel guitar and twang, but much better than the regular old country. im thinking a 2-3. pleasant surprise. I may give it another listen

13th January 2022 Listened on my phone in the morning while showering etc before heading back to London in the afternoon. Didn't mind it, she has an amazing voice but overall not really my bag.a bit too draggy.

Great voice, nothing really interesting other than that. Songs didn't really appeal to me.

Just more country MOR stuff… find it extremely difficult to get anything but bored with this type of music.

Never got into this album at the time and have the same experience listening to it now - a couple of songs are quite strong though and vocals are excellent.

Aika löysää paskaa... Ei nyt ainakaan aamulla tuntunut löytyvään mitään tarttumapintaa. Mitäänsanomatonta ja lötköö. 2/5

Nothing really here than stood out or got me going. The last song sounded familiar but this didn’t do it for me.

I really like k.d. lang's voice, I just always wish it was singing something else. Love the voice, don't care much for the songs. (But I do like it when she covers other people's songs.)

Listened to more than half, but then quickly skipped through the rest as I couldn't take it any more. Not for me. Though Constant Craving is a good song.

I forgot I was listening to this while it was on, the musical equivalent of a draught on your neck in a restaurant. The last one about how hungry she is is ok.

KD - I am embarrassed for you. This is so sappy. I don’t believe in cancel culture but if I did the first thing I would cancel is this album.

This is a weird album. I know constant craving. Most of the other songs on the album sound totally different and have an odd bossa nova thing going on that I didn’t expect.

Not for me. I can't find any significance in this album whatsoever. There's nothing memorable here for me, even in the slightest, and I can't even suggest it's a good album. Perhaps it's just a snapshot of a weird moment and style in musical history.

Blegh. This is very much in the genre of "Adult Contemporary" and just about put me to sleep. Could not get into this album at all. She must have some listeners to have been around all these years but jeez, dunno who would listen to her willingly. Best (of a bad bunch): Constant Craving Worst (saying something): Season Of Hollow Soul

I once got into Prince to seduce a girl (who grew up to be a lesbian) and it was pointed out to me that maybe K D Lang would have been a better choice. Having listened to this album for a second time (once in the 90’s and once just now), I can conclude that, even if I’d been successful in my seduction, I would have felt utterly filthy in using such a piece of schmaltzy tatt for my own personal gain. I feel much happier as a lonely Prince fan than I would a K D Lang aficionado with a harem of loose moraled females.
