Editors’ Notes

Sarah McLachlan exists in her own time and space. Times change, but McLachlan remains true to her original visions. In conjunction with the restart of Lilith Fair, McLachlan releases her first album of new material in seven years. It’s exactly what a McLachlan fan would want and expect. Longtime producer Pierre Marchand applies the adult-contemporary gloss, while McLachlan sings her folk-pop heart out with songs of spiritual renewal. “Awakenings,” “Loving You Is Easy,” the piano ballad “Forgiveness” and the rallying buzz of “Don’t Give Up On Us” come together as yet another assured album of effortless grace and genuine talent. In some ways, it makes McLachlan sound almost old-fashioned, as she offers up songs that could easily fit onto her other albums. (“Rivers of Love” could easily fit in on 2003’s Afterglow). Like a modern-day folksinger clinging to her values, McLachlan doesn’t compromise or try to become the next big thing.

Customer Reviews


I think I have died and gone to heaven! I am a huge Sarah McLachlan fan and this much anticipated album is EXACTLY what I was waiting for. Sarah continues to give me goose bumps, her amazing voice backed by melodic instrumentals will never get old. Laws of Illusion is another Sarah McLachlan classic. It has been too long since AfterGlow, but I must say she has out done herself once again. Once I saw “Loving You is Easy” on David Letterman I immediately preordered the album. I can’t stop listening to it, every song on the album seems to get better the more I listen to it. GREAT WORK SARAH, see you at Lilith!

Sad but so true!

I was sad to hear or her marriage troubles, but it is possible it was the catapult she needed to get back into writing, so thanks Ashwin! your loss is our gain. You brought the Queen back from the singer's dead.

Real Talent
