Album Review

Dedicated fans of Sarah McLachlan had a lot to buy in 2008, when the Canadian songwriter issued three retrospective albums. Rarities, B-Sides & Other Stuff, Vol. 2 led the pack in April, followed by a deluxe edition of Fumbling Toward Ecstasy several months later. Closer: The Best of Sarah McLachlan brought up the rear, arriving in October and compiling McLachlan's greatest hits along with two new songs. "Don't Give Up on Us" and "U Want Me 2" are standard McLachlan tunes, mixing adult contemporary songcraft with the soothing, evergreen vocals that helped her rise to prominence. As always, producer Pierre Marchand helms both of those new songs, and his presence throughout this compilation — not to mention McLachlan's steady songcraft — helps make Closer a consistent, unified work. Casual fans will find what they need in the regular 16-track version, while diehards might want to look at the two-disc version, which includes additional songs and several remixes.

Customer Reviews

One of the worlds most amazing female voices

A true celebration of the joy that is Sarah McLachlan.

Wrong album?

Strange. The album review talks about an "Artist's choice CD" ... not the album Closer that it's supposed to be reviewing. I'd really like to download / buy Sarah's Artists choice CD selection .. and will probably buy Closer. It's just the album review doesn't apply to Closer - so people new to Sarah McLachlan won't be able to make an informed decision from this source. Also, it says the release date for this album (Closer) is 26 May 2004 - when it should be something like 8 October 2008 Does anyone know where I can view / download Sarah McLachlan's Artists Choice CD?

A must for new fans

If you just know Sarah from 'Afterglow' and 'Surfacing' (like me), then this collection is a must have. The studio version of 'U Want Me 2' is an absolute gorgeous...

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 grow both as a musician and songwriter, continually redefining herself and emerging as a major voice in the growing adult alternative pop format.
