For a solo debut, this disc sure is crowded with other names. Stars like Elton John, Rufus Wainwright, and k.d. lang join Heart’s howling frontwoman on duet duty, while covers of well-known oldies make up most of the track list. Thankfully, Ann Wilson’s own vocals have grown more passionate over the years, and she makes certain the spotlight never strays far from her on Hope & Glory. The best songs play up her flair for melodrama with roiling Middle Eastern string sections. We’ll just ignore that snoozy bluegrass take on ”Bad Moon Rising.” B+
