After the gold rush

It is not often that I hear a cover of a famous song that completely blows the original out of the water. It happened earlier this year when I got hold of k.d. lang's 2004 album Hymns of the 49th Parallel. Her take on Neil Young's After the goldrush is breathtakingly beautiful. Art Rock score: 9/10 (excellent song, one of the 600 best of all time).
