Fumbling Towards Ecstasy ~ Sarah Mclachlan
Fumbling Towards Ecstasy ~ Sarah Mclachlan
5.0 out of 5 stars She does it again!, June 23 2012
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… Read more
From the Choirgirl Hotel ~ Tori Amos
5.0 out of 5 stars Astonishingly Amazing!, June 23 2012
This CD is just so creative as every Tori CD is. Again her structural composition for each song is so unique exemplifying her gifts as a prodigy in the music industry. She always takes you on a journey with each an old jigsaw puzzle that you are attempting to put together she magically weaves you into her world. Enjoy this one as it's a keeper!

Spark:Who sings about Nicotine Patches? Yes that's Tori, again using metaphors to explain her current emotional turmoil! Wow; just a remarkable telling of the pain of having a miscarriage.....gruelling!
Cruel:Love all the percussion, drums & exaggerated instruments in this track; and her voice sounds so cool on this… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Free is good!, June 23 2012
Jann Arden is such a great singer. I have seen her live and if you ever get a chance to see her live she is hilarious & as good live as she is in her recordings; if not even better. She sings songs of the heart, about love lost and can transmit any songs that deal with emotions and the human condition like no other. She gets to the raw emotions we all feel at one time or another or know someone who has. Free is another great CD from Jann; always good singing & great writing.

My favorite tracks on this CD are:

Free: A great song about how we feel once that person we've been involved with is now gone, like feeling a breath of fresh air for the first time! Beautiful… Read more
