CD Temptation [Holly Cole] [CD] [1 disc]
Entertainment Weekly (8/18/95, p.56) - "...What's consistently effective is the minimal soundscape crafted by producer Craig Street..." - Rating: BQ (10/95, pp.113-114) - 3 Stars - Good - "...a rum idea--a whole album of Tom Waits songs...the rough textures cleverly softened..."NME (Magazine) (10/7/95, p.49) - 7 (out of 10) - "...a minimalist KD Lang....most effective on the Shirelles-esque sass of `Jersey Girl' and the scary `I Don't Wanna Grow Up'--where the Waits original was a rude kid rant, here it's an introverted suicidal lullaby..."
CD Half the Perfect World [Madeleine Peyroux] 
Rolling Stone (p.88) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[S]teeped in jazz and classic pop; much of it is polite and pretty..."Entertainment Weekly (p.94) - "WORLD is like stumbling into a jazz cafe at closing time, when the performers are lingering on stage, not ready to leave the music." -- Grade: A-Q (p.147) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[H]er take on Joni Mitchell's 'River', featuring harmonies from the like-minded kd lang, is the melancholy highlight. It's perfect rainy day music."Down Beat (p.76) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "In keeping with Peyroux's unassuming vocal approach most of the songs make an almost surreptitious entry..."No Depression (p.121) - "On 'A Little Bit', Peyroux's voice skirts flirtatiously around the melody, while the string quartet on 'Once In A While' puts an artful shimmer on soft blues."Mojo (Publisher) (p.104) - 5 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he warm sound puts every note in the room with you....Intimate and unforced..."
CD All You Can Eat [k.d. lang]
Rolling Stone (11/16/95, p.112) - 3 Stars - Good - "...The rhythms and sonic textures draw from the vintage soul of Al Green, while the stark arrangements and lush melodies embrace the primal sophistication of trend-bucking college- radio faves like Bjork and Harvey without evoking either..."Spin (11/95, p.127) - 7 - Flawed Yet Worthy - "...as mannered a groove as she's ever offered....The synthetic funk of ALL YOU CAN EAT sounds all-natural, more soulful than new age, more alterna than adult. These songs haven't an ounce of singer-songwriter fat..."Entertainment Weekly (12/29/95-1/5/96, p.132) - Ranked #9 on EW's Top 10 Albums Of 1995.Entertainment Weekly (10/13/95, pp.74-76) - "...Ten meditations on unrequited desire, courtship, rejection and sex, ALL YOU CAN EAT is both the most brazen and conventional album she's ever made, and one of her best..." - Rating: AQ (2/96, p.64) - Included in Q's 50 Best Albums of 1995 - "...sensibly avoided dwelling on celebrity misery in favour of more tactile musings on the sucker-punch power of desire..."Musician (1/96, p.95) - "...there's much to love about these songs...Lang offers charms enough to seduce even the casual fan..."NME (Magazine) (9/30/95, p.54) - 7 (out of 10) - "...a full-on, snog me now, mellow-man meltdown of orchestral quavering and blissed-out pondering on the nature of love, sex and all the paranoia in between....KD Lang is one of those proper songwriters/lungsmiths who could exist in any of rock's lost decades..."
