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. [A deluxe edition was also released.]

Customer Reviews

another "best of" from sarah

sadly, i'm not saying it's a bad album... however, as a fan, i already have these songs. this would be perfect for someone who is experiencing sarah for the first time. you will enjoy this album a lot, and perhaps maybe even buy her others from the past. we miss you sarah!


I absolutely positively love love love Sarah McLachlan which is kind of sad since I'm 17 and she usually attracts an older audience. But I love her music and voice to death. It's so relaxing and inspiring, her songs are so easy to relate to. I was excited when I heard she had two new songs out and I love both of them. I thought new songs meant a new album but sadly that is not the case. MAKE A NEW ALBUM SARAH! I would definately buy it. Too bad I already have all these songs...

More repackaging

Another release, two new songs. I love Sarah, but is is really time for a COMPLETELY NEW album.

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. She also founded Lilith Fair, a concert tour that helped usher other female songwriters into the mainstream during...
