It's been 6 years since Sarah's last studio album... and this one was definitely worth waiting for. Overall I don't think it's Sarah's best album to date, but it's still a very good one (my personal favourite would be Surfacing) and on par with Fumbling Towards Ecstasy and Surfacing.
My favourite songs are "Fallen" (the first single), "Stupid" (I love this one!), "World On Fire", and "Dirty Little Secret" (sounding very much like some of Tori Amos' slow songs! Amazing!).
If you like Sarah you'll love this album.

I am including below my favorite songs on this CD release. Just to let everyone know I actually prefer the Live CD version more but also this is a good version of the same songs but recorded tracks. I adore Sarah she's not only an accomplished lyricist, musician but I would also say social humanitarian re:Lilith Fair. Having said that my only complaint about Sarah is this...please do not keep putting out CD's unless they are new material. So many of her CD's are re-releases of the same music and although she has said that writing isn't easy for her; we get that....but then don't make the audience suffer through repeated CD's of the same material. I no longer buy CD's from her unless it is new material because of noticing this one too many times. Other than that of course I think she's one of the best female artists of her generation.

1.World On Fire: Wonderful lyrics that flow with such ease. This is a more pop like tune of hers I would say. This song isn't one of my favorite Sarah songs per se but it is on one of my playlists.

2.Drifting: This song really does make you feel like you are drifting. I think this is one of Sarah's gems & like many this song will last over time. I'm still playing it & can see myself always liking this song. It's one of those songs that I could fall asleep to (and not from boredom); her voice sounds so soothing. It made me realize that if she's hard up for writing material she should consider doing a CD of lullabies for all those frustrated new Mom's out there. It would be a welcome addition to the nursery. Anyway play this song & see if you don't just keep shuffling it on your MP3 folks!

3.Push: What a lyrically beautiful love song of acceptance & tolerance within the confines of a relationship. This is Sarah at her best.

Even though this cd only has 10 songs, it is one heck of a cd! Sarah's voice is stunning. I enjoyed the song Fallen so much. Everything from her voice, lyrics, and instrumentals is breathtaking. This is a MUST have. It's one of her very best. Can she captivate her listener, or what?!

"Heaven bend to take my hand and lead me through the fire". What a great opening line, eh?! Never was a SM fan before this album. But AFTERGLOW has made me go back listen to her past albums. Every song on this album is great (with the exception of World on Fire). The lament and melencholy in Sarah's voice is front and centre. Very good to listen too when you're feeling low and need to wallow in some self pity. Beautiful album!

a long awaited album...this album may not have the flare and distinction that Surfacing has received but i gotta say that sarah still has it. after laying low for about 6 years and with having a baby and her mom, it's really nice to see how much sarah has evolved as an artist with her new experiences.
i love Fallen but Stupid & Trainwreck are my favorite songs.
the song list is fairly shorter than what i expected from a sarah cd. i miss the hidden tracks and the summer lilith fair concerts. i'm so looking forward to her afterglow tour!

This is an album for her fans. You can recognize rythms from past albums with a touch of evolution. For people who don't really know her and bought Surfacing, they're gonna think it's the same, but it's become more profound and deep into her world. It's the total Sarah Experience!

I have been really excited about the new album and I finally have it. I have played Afertglow three times over (the first time on my headphones lying on my bed, and twice consecutively while I've worked around the house).
At just over 40 minutes it's short and sweet. In typical Sarah fashion the melodies are all very strong, and her voice is as impeccable as ever.
Producer Pierre Marchant does a fine job lending the album a lush and mellow sound. The music is very textured, but simple. There are no big productions, just minimal arrangements. Acoustic and electric guitar, piano, percussion and orchestration support the melodies and Sarah's vocals. All in all, this album get's better with repeated listens. Each time I fell deeper into the music.
Of the ten songs, several stand out. Fallen is a song about failed relationships, and a ideal choice for the first single. Here Sarah shows just how well she can take a universal theme and make it personal. It also has one of the finest melodies on the album.
Many of the songs here are about relationships. Over the past several years Sarah has been through a lot, from marriage and the loss of close friends, to the death of her mother and the birth of her daughter India (in the liner notes the albums dedication is to the two of them). As can be expected her writing is very emotional, but it's also subtle.
World on Fire is undoubtably Sarah's reaction to life in the post 9/11 world. Here is an exerpt:
"Hearts break, hearts mend, love still hurts.
Visions clash, planes crash, still there's talk of saving souls.
Still the cold is closing in on us."
Answer is my favourite song on the new album. Very simple, yet powerful. An example of how less can be more. I was teary eyed when I first heard this song.
