I discovered Sarah Maclachlans by accident when watching the film 'Message In A Bottle', the song 'I Love You' was on and I was enchanted by the whole song so purchased the Sountrack the next day, and from there I bought this CD and by the following week i had all her records.
Maclachlan has one of the most captivating, melodic voices I have heard, every time she sings you are drawn to her, its very difficult to just put this CD on and listen to a few randomized tracks, as her voice seduces you to the end, a true talent and a compelling album with some of the most genuinely heartbreaking lyrics i have ever read, like Jim Morrison, Sarah Maclachlan writes poetry rather than lyrics, she sings stories (Path Of Thorns, Fumbling towards ecstacy) and its an emotion trip, which will satisfy you musically and leave you wanting more.
ALL of the tracks on here are excellent, not some but all, and I'm no sycophant just someone who stumbled in to this artist who ended up being one of my favourite of all time.
This is a tapestry of music woven in lament and drowned in the beauty of her voice with powerful ballads that will rock and inspire you.
As i said i discovered it by accident, but it was more serendipity than accident, Out of dozens of reviews on Amazon I can honestly say this is my 2nd most highly recommended CD.
