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.
