Sarah McLachlan
Shine On

One day, not that long ago, Sarah McLachlan gave an advance copy of her new album Shine On to a friend who was about to set out on a road trip. "She said she listened to it on repeat throughout the whole drive; she laughed, she cried, she sang at the top of her lungs, and went through the gamut of emotions." McLachlan says. "That seemed like the ... Read more in Amazon's Sarah McLachlan Store

Editorial Reviews

Grafted from McLachlan's supremely satisfying 1998 performances, Mirrorball is drawn almost equally from the multiplatinum Surfacing and its superior predecessor, Fumbling Towards Ecstasy. (Included also is the lovely, hard-to-come-by "I Will Remember You.") Live, a haunting ballad such as "Possession" becomes a fevered, aggressive bit of psychedelia. "Hold On" reveals new depths when performed behind the beat with morphing time signatures and driving piano. McLachlan's warmly expressive voice is still at the epicenter of her performances. She roams through these 14 songs with agile ease, riding the rails between singing for dramatic arena effect--huskily growling, airily trilling--and knowing what to play down with her sensually controlled crooning (witness such gems as Fumbling's title song and "Good Enough"). Overall, McLachlan's vocals match the heavily percussive intensity of her band and the build of her backing vocalists, producing a more spacious sound than the precise pitch rendered on her studio recordings. --Paige La Grone

5.0 out of 5 stars Dreamy Voice, Smooth Band, Tight Production September 21, 2002
By HiRez
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I didn't know much about Sarah McLachlan before I bouth this CD, but now after listening to it for several months, she is one of my favorites. I wonder if it's because I heard this live album first, but when I listen to the studio albums, I don't think the songs are nearly as good as they are here. The studio versions I found somewhat wooden and cold by comparison, but live a great amount of emotion comes though. Sarah's voice is incredibly expressive and she gives flawless performances. It's really impressive for someone to sound so good live, and I like that she doesn't hide her voice behind tons of effects and other instruments. Gee she plays guitar and piano very nicely too, what more do you want? I also get the idea from how she interacts with the crowd that she's a genuinely nice person too. Maybe you don't care but it makes me appreciate her even more.
The production is very good, so you will not feel like you are compromising quality. I feel it's one of the best-sounding live albums I've heard, right up there with Supertramp's "Paris", Dire Straits' "Alchemy", and Joe Jackson's "Big World". Originally I only liked a few songs on this album. I'm glad I gave a few of the "disposable" ones a chance because now I love pretty much all of them -- there are no tracks that need skipping over here. There's a good range of emotional textures presented, from the semi-rocking (for a folk artist) "Building a Mystery", "Possession", and "Sweet Surrender", to fun to nostalgic power ballads like "Adia" and "Good Enough", to haunting and sad piano introspections "Do What You Have to Do" and "Angel".
I really hope some guys get over their anti-female-artist bias and try this album. Trust me this is NOT Britney Spears (no choreographed background monkeys here!). It's touching and intelligent and honest songwriting, sung by one of the most beautiful voices you will ever hear and it is well worth your fourteen bucks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the best February 20, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Yes, it is a greatest hits collection. Yes, it contains songs that any Sarah fan havs heard many many times over. No, it is not the same. And, perhaps most importantly, no, it wasn't made "for the money." This is a superb piece of music, different from her recorded songs in that it is filled with much more energy than the dignified restraint so popular with her CDs. "Adia," here with its quietly intense, pleasatily morphed vocals, is a satisfying alternative to her mellow version on Surfacing. "I Love You" seems more sad and lonely than the studio version, as if Sarah is standing alone and whispering to the mirror. "Possession," however, is much more rough and powerful (due to McLachlan's effortlessly determined voice) and (my personal favorite) "Fumbling Towards Ecstacy" is pure perfection, with its impressive guitar and drum work rounding out McLachlan's passionate singing. In short, this CD is so good because it's the same, brilliant Sarah, packaged in a more intense package that's suitable for energetic listening, rather than the quiet solitude her studio music could more fully be appreciated in. Now, we have the best of both worlds.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's about freakin' time!!! October 8, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I found this CD totally by accident when out record shopping. I had to have it since I love the DVD and Sarah's more recent concert film, "Afterglow Live".

Though I've been wondering for AGES why they didn't just release the whole concert audio when the original Mirrorball CD came out some 10 (?) years ago.

Needless to say, this concert CD is awesome. It is taken from the last night of the tour in Portland, Oregon. Unlike the previous Mirrorball CD which took songs recorded throughout the tour, this is all one show. I believe it's the same show taped for the DVD.

It's great to finally get all the songs that were missing from the original CD, like "Vox" and "I Will Not Forget You", to name a couple.

I don't like how the tracks are not seamless, as each track begins from complete silence to a fade in to a fade out and silence between songs. When I buy a concert CD, I like the seamless transision between songs. It feels like you're experiencing the concert again. The seamed songs do take away from the recording, but only barely. Overall, this CD is a great release and worth every penny.

4.0 out of 5 stars "greatest hits"compilation/live album/new interpretations September 28, 1999
Format:Audio CD
I would give this CD 5 stars if it was from anyone else. But, since it's Sarah, I have slightly higher expectations... also, I found the crowd noise distracting, as I tend to do on "live albums" that aren't a single concert. Also, I would have liked to see more of her earlier work. Specifically, "Vox", "Into the Fire", and "Drawn to the Rhythm" come to mind, although I don't know if she performs the latter two in concert. To me it comes across like a greatest-hits compilation in some ways. I recommend it for people who either: 1) Like Sarah from radio exposure and want the songs they've heard along with some new ones, but don't want to spend lots of money to buy all the CDs. 2) Sarah fans who'll buy anything just because it's Sarah. (I admit that at times I'm included in this group...) But it has its moments. Good Enough, Path of Thorns, and Angel come to mind. I don't think there's any songs that Sarah really ruined by putting on here... some people say I Love You sounds too similar to the studio version. What's wrong with that? It's still a good song.
