Sarah McLachlan is so talented one can't create any new euphonisms to describe her anymore. This CD is Sarah as always at her best.While this CD is great beyond words she has so many great CD's I now no longer categorize them as "the best" because quite frankly ALL her CD's ARE THE BEST!
While all the songs on this CD are amazing my favorite songs are:
Elsewhere: One of the best songs I think ever written lyrically. Her voice & also her background vocalist sound so luscious on it. I still have this song on my favorite playlist since this CD first came out; it's that good!
Ice: This is my favorite song of Sarah's, even still. The acoustical guitar work is exceptional and her songwriting on this track is beyond words...she makes it seem so effortless...all crafted together so magnificently. Loved the bongo drums, percussion, horns in their subtlety...weaving in & out at just the right sweet spots. I still have this on my favorite Mp3 playlist; it will never be removed!
Wait:Beautiful song....she does this song so good live! I've seen her so much they should just put her on the Toronto Stock Exchange! Ha! Ha! No doubt there is something in the water here in Canada that produces such great talent like hers!
Ice Cream: Such a cute song....shows her softer, fun side!
All the tracks are great even though I just critiqued a few....they are all exceptional!
