Biographyby Chris Woodstra

Since her debut in 1988, Sarah McLachlan's atmospheric folk-pop has gained a devoted following not only in her native Canada, where she established star status with her first album, but also in the U.S. and U.K. The following two decades saw her growing both as a musician and songwriter, continually redefining herself and emerging as a major voice in the ...

Sarah McLachlan is stunning; I discovered her with the release of Fumbling Towards Ecstasy, often lauded by her fans as her greatest work. It's where the sound, the tone, her voice, the lyrics - songs about love, betrayal, obsession, grief, domestic abuse... - and simply everything come together to create this wonderful, gut-wrenching, beautiful masterpiece. Some say it's now dated, but I think it stands unique in its own space in time - and maybe even more powerful now than the early-mid 90s, as though it was unique even then, you rarely find anything near that calibre being produced these days... Each of her albums is like an evolution; debut Touch simply touches at the edges of her genius, almost experimental in sound and in her voice and lyrics and what she's trying to achieve. By the mid 90s, with FTE and slightly more modern-sounding Surfacing, the genius is unleashed and will blow you away. Surfacing remains her biggest commercial success, and features two of her biggest known tracks: over-played Adia and the now-much-covered Angel. Perhaps after Afterglow, the edge has somewhat dimmed - a turn into a more main-stream sound, and lacking the meaningful lyrics - but there's no suggestion that she's `peaked'. Again - an evolution in her style, and of course the age. This Best Of provides a good overview of her work up to 2010 - tracks from all 6 major albums, in chronological order: Vox from Touch; The Path Of Thorns and Into The Fire from Solace; Possession, Hold On and Good Enough from FTE; Building A Mystery, Sweet Surrender, Adia and Angel from Surfacing; Fallen, Stupid and World On Fire from Afterglow; Don't Give Up On Us and U Want Me 2 from Laws Of Illusion.Read more ›

purchased this cd because of the track IN THE ARMS OF AN ANGEL haunting sound to her voice some of the tracks were not to my liking but the rest certainly worth the price of the cd

Brought this album as a birthday present for my husband. He really likes Sarah Mclachlan, but didn't have any of her music. This 'best of' seemed a great place to start. What a great choice, this album is so calming when you put it on. Really shows off Sarah Mclachlan's wonderful voice and talent. With all of her classic songs. Would definitely recommend this album. Here's to collect the rest of her albums.

This is my first Sarah M CD and is brilliant. I will probably buy more of this talented artist who has escaped my attention - until now!

I have enjoyed Sarah McLachlan's music and performances for many years now and its great to have all the best known tracks together on one album. Whilst Sarah has never had a huge single in the UK (with the exception of the Delerium track Silence for which she provided the vocals and her much covered Angel) her albums have always sold solidly.
The best bits here are Possession,Hold On and Good Enough from the Fumbling Towards Ecstacy album - Angel,Sweet Surrender and Building A Mystery from the Sufacing album and the two new tracks U Want Me 2 and Don't Give Up On Us are wonderful.
Hopefully Sarah will pop over to Europe to promote the album - if not though you can catch her last tour on the Afterglow live DVD available here at Amazon. A wonderful singer-songwriter who deserves all her success. Looking forward to a new album soon Sarah.

I listened last year one of the tracks "angel" and I loved it! So I decided to buy the "best of" and I am not disappointed at all. Great voice and moving songs. Definitely item to be recommended.
