Most so-called fans of Sarah McLachlan are probably unaware of the fact that she released two albums before "Fumbling Towards Ecstasy" in 1993. Many "fans" have missed out on the masterpiece that is "Solace" (1991) and "Touch", McLachlan's fine debut album. As with all of McLachlan's later releases, they have focused on her devastatingly beautiful voice but if nothing else, "Touch" is nothing but a vehicle for her voice and her outstanding acoustic guitar work. Lyrically, Sarah wrote about nonsense (check out the lyrics to "Strange World" to see my point) and musically the album suffers under Greg Reely's over-production and corny instrumentation. Had these songs been left in their original acoustic forms, I'm sure I would give this album a much higher rating. Anyway, despite the fact that the album is deeply flawed, it's still an entertaining and interesting first-listen to one of the best vocalists out there today.
Favourite songs: "Out of the Shadows", "Vox", "Touch", "Steaming", "Sad Clown".
