Review of Women Making Music: k.d. lang

Though a shortish clip at 3 minutes, kd still manages to cover quite a few subjects. Such as, her way of thinking and writing, her career and musical tastes, her sexuality and the media. If you're already a kd fan there isn't anything too new, informational wise (though still fun and interesting to listen too). However, for someone new to kd's music, as I said for a short clip, it covers quite a few areas in a few brief but enlightening remarks. And a nice selection of kd's music playing in the background.

I enjoyed listening to it.
