This album is quite simply fantastic.. It takes a couple of listens as its definitely mellowed from previous work.. I think Sarah's become yet more introspective since a few more major life changes came along in the birth of her daughter and death of her mother... That said its a GREAT album. Fallen is superb, and if you havent seen it yet the video for world on fire is superb (just like the song). Stupid is the only real rock song on the album and is fantastic, and the album continues in a folksy, jazzy, light rocky sorta way through other standout tracks such as the haunting "Answer" and lovely ballads drifitng, and train wreck... All in all a great if as always too short album from the Divine Mrs M....
Oh on another note I just read a review (the only one of it's kind) that claimed not to like FTE, and if they happen to read back please please please get mirrorball.. I agree FTE was overproduced and sounds a little bit dated now even possibly due to the very gothic orchestration... However if you listen to the greatest hits tour "Mirrorball" or indeed the soon to be released (and i can't wait) Afterglow Live, then I guarantee you will love the up to date versions of tracks such as fear, ice cream, the awesome hold on and possibly my favourite elsewhere (which is on the fantastic dvd version).. The live versions are really completely different from the album and show what a difference there is when she performs live..
I saw the afterglow tour a couple of weeks ago and I have to admit was absolutely blown away. I knew she was fantastic as I had the dvd's, but had no idea how good she really would sound. Her voice was amazing, note perfect, and one particular note she held for topping 30 seconds on a song called witness, was truly one of those moments that make you glad to be alive.. Her band were spectacular, but naturally she stole a remarkable show, I can't wait till she returns...

I first came across Sarah McLachlan's vocal prowess on the haunting track 'Silence' by Delerium - if you're unfamiliar with that then it is well worth tracking down and listening to. I then saw he live on Jonathan Ross last year and decided that she was an artiste worth investigating.
This is the first CD of hers that I have bought - and I have found it an enchanting, haunting and extremely well crafted album. McLachlan quite simply has a beautiful voice and writes intelligent and poignant lyrics - and this album displays her vocals at their best. It demands to be listened to, and is definitely not background music for dinner parties as many might describe Nora Jones and Dido. The opening track 'Fallen' sets the standard for the album, and other high spots include 'Train Wreck' and 'Answer' - but the other 7 tracks paint a vivid picture and use the full pallet of McLachlan's rich voice. Buy it - you won't be diappointed!

After a five-year absence since her last live album "Mirrorball", during which time Sarah McLachlan became a mum, it's great to see her back again. It's even more pleasing to hear some of the over-heavy synthesisers stripped away in favour of piano and guitars, the perfect accompaniment to McLachlan's folky and note-perfect vocals. A little rawer in sound than previous albums - I loved 'Fumbling Towards Ecstasy' but found it over-produced in places - this has some powerful songs that hit harder for the lack of artifice around the edges.
Standout tracks 'Fallen' - how wonderful to hear that voice again after such a long absence - 'Stupid' and 'Train Wreck' carry all the power and directness of vintage McLachlan. 'Push' is beautiful, soulful and touching without being either sickly or over-sentimental, and 'Answer' is heartbreaking, just piano, brush drums and a faint cello, and carries that ghostly feel that conjures up comparisons with, strangely, acts such as Clannad.
It would be easy to believe that McLachlan has spent the seven years since her last studio album sharpening and perfecting these ten songs; there's little here that could have been improved on. Expect to see this cluttering up many end-of-year 'Best Of' lists. In a world where Dido can sell fifteen billion albums, Sarah McLachlan is long due recognition and success. Hopefully, this one will see her achieve both in the UK.

I have been a huge fan of Sarah McLachlan for years, and I was thrilled when I got this album. Suuccessful fmsic is all about connecting with the listener, and this is one of the best albums for doing this.
Unfortunately the CD is only 10 tracks, upon listening to every one I can guarantee that you will crave more - lucky you if you can get a bonus copy with an additional 4 live tracks.
Every song is classic, and could be released. I have given this album 5 stars without hesitation. For me the album begins in a wonderful manner with the awesome and haunting Fallen - if it weren't for Evanescence I think this would have been the title of the album - it sums up McLachlans writing style, vocals and charisma perfectly, and could replace the awesome song Angel from the Surfacing album as her signature tune.
The weakest song on the album is still wonderful, the song Perfect Girl was difficult for me to relate to, but the style of writing and the melody can only be described as beautiful. The album is very strong and the time spent perfecting the arrangements and writing is clear to see and the album oozes class.
Dirty Little Secret and Train Wreck are just two of the superb songs on here and I would suggest this album is a must for music lovers, and the joy that I have gained from listening to this album means it is in my list of favourite albums ever - coming close to the top.
Absolutely superb, and trust me, I do not give 5 stars lightly.
