All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Since 2006's Reintarnation chronicled k.d. lang's alt-country beginnings, there was a need for a compilation that focused on her smoky prime, the recordings from Ingénue on, the recordings that turned her into a crossover star. Recollection, available as either a double-disc or a deluxe set that expands that pair with a disc of live recordings and a DVD of music videos, does just that, painting a portrait of lang the modern-day torch singer. In doing so, it repeats a little of Reintarnation, but even those tunes don't quite possess the wild, almost campy retro-swing of lang's early years.

    Amazing KD Lang

    I was shopping in Barnes and Noble and heard a beautiful song and asked who it was. I had a feeling it was KD Lang, but wasn't sure. It was her newest album and it was really great. There are a few songs from other albums , but some new songs as well as some cover songs.
    Her voice is like a breath of fresh air and her style is so unique. I really enjoy driving while listening to her.
    My favorites are: You're OK and The Valley. Wonderful songs to sing along to! I mostly have been listening to CD 1. Oh, did I mention there are two CD's inside? It's a great value for KD Lang fans.

    k.d. lang and "Hallelujah

    I bought this CD collection after hearing k.d. lang sing "Hallelujah" at the recent Olympics. The original version is on one CD and the new version is on the other. Both are extraordinary. Many of the other songs are also very well done. This is the first k.d. lang CD I've ever purchased and I would recomment it to anyone who enjoys her. If you like the song "Hallelujah", you might want to give this CD a try. Perhaps it will open you up to this artist as it has done for me.

    Hallelujah

    I had lost touch with K.D.Lang. Then I heard her at the winter Olympix. Wow. It brough many goos memories. So naturally I got her next album. I am very happy with it. Her soulful voice makes everything she sings special. Even songs originally done by other artists.

    recollection - New To Me

    I initially purchased this CD for "Hallelujah" after hearing kd perform it at the opening ceremonies of the 2010 Winter Olympics and I'm glad I did. Hallelujah, or the numerous other songs on the jam-packed CD, did not disappoint! This is a departure from the music that I typically listen to (Country) but I enjoyed just about every song on the disc.

    k.d.lang's voice is extraordinary

    I missed most of k.d.lang's output the first time around, but was so thrilled by her voice at the Winter Olympics' Opening Ceremony that I had to buy her new Recollection album. It is spectacular, lush, gorgeous. I absolutely love it, like few recordings I have ever heard. She is a singers' singer--the arrangements are beautiful, but it is her vocal quality and control are what it is all about.

    k.d. has done it again! Such an emotion filled, soulful singer. Have this cd in my car; plays everytime I'm "on the move". Bring on more of k.d. lang.

    k.d.lang is awesome!

    k.d.lang takes you away to a soulful place and let you land ever so softly.
    Each song is performed with the utmost attention to the mood and temper of the song she is singing.
    Her range is bar none!
    Keep singing and entertaining us k.d.!!

    She's BAAAACK! WOW!

    K.D. Lange is such an exceptional artist that I actually check for new material from her everytime I hit the music racks at B&N. This collection is a great addition. Her unique voice sets her apart as does the passion she pours into her performance! Please don't wait so long, K.D.!

    Hallelujah

    How fitting that k.d.lang exquisitely performs Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah twice in this double CD treasure. That's the gist of my review of Recollections.... hallelujah, hallelujah!!

    I honestly can't stand this album

    Now maybe I'm going crazy listening to this because it plays at work every single day and maybe since we only play Disc 1 I am biased...but I want to pull my hair out every time this cd comes on. K.D. Lang scoops every single note to where she can't actually stay on one note for any period of time before drooping along to another. She's flat...a lot...and uses the scooping to somehow compensate for this. It drives me up the wall. She does this on every song and somehow the songs seem like they all focus on the same grouping of notes to where it sounds like 13 or however many songs that are all the same, scoop-filled awfulness. Her version of "Hallelujah" is horrendous. I did my K.D. Lang impression for some customers the other day and they thought it was pretty amusing so maybe it was fairly accurate. I wish I could remove it from the in-store play. Bah!

    K.D. LANG STIRS YOUR SOUL WITH TIMELESS RECOLLECTION!

    As Tony Bennet once said K.D. Lang had a destiny to be named with great artists like Billy Holiday and Hank Williams and this recording could be his proof.
    Along with hits like "Contant Craving" "Summerfling" "Trail of Broken Hearts" and "Crying (w/ Roy Orbison)" her handling of songs by Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, Cole Porter and Leonard Cohen is masterful and showcases her limitless range and depth of emotion. She holds her own in duets with Roy Orbison and Tony Bennett while showing her respect for these great artists. It was as entertaining then as it is now.
    The songs on this recording touch the heart and soul of romantics of all ages. The songs are timeless sung by a voice that is immortal.
