piano talent in years”.

lang has earned the rare right to record exactly the material she wants, how she wants, and still expect an audience, and "Sing It Loud" reflects that with its self-assured, but often self-indulgent, songcraft - a formula that is ultimately winning due to her charisma and raw talent.
Sharp-edged hooks don't run aplenty, so the songs do not generally demand individual attention, but they also sparkle with spotless polish, the result of an obviously meticulous attention to detail that makes the album play highly satisfyingly.
