  • Summary: K.D. Lang's latest album was produced entirely by herself.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 12 out of 15
  2. Negative: 0 out of 15
  1. The self-produced Watershed is the best thing she's done since 1992's "Ingenue." [Feb 2008, p.96]
  2. The mellifluous melodies and tasteful instrumentation fall in line with the adult-contemporary pop of previous albums such as "Ingenue" and "Invincible Summer."
  3. 80
    Watershed feels like a declaration of independence. [Feb 2008, p.87]
  4. The frame of reference effortlessly spans country, bossa nova and a few different shades of vintage pop, with only one distracting allusion (the late-era Beatles crescendo that swells up within “Close Your Eyes”).
  5. Watershed, k.d. lang's new torch-and-twang exploration, will hover delicately in the background of many a coffee shop, but it does little to elevate itself to a more conscious musical experience.
  6. With Watershed, k.d. lang does what the gifted and the lucky always should: improve as time passes.
  7. 60
    Deceptively simple, Watershed highlights what Lang does best--fulsome ballads sung with precision timing, intelligence and a humourous twist. [Jan 2008, p.100]
