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

Three Time Grammy Winner and legendary singer songwriter makes her Verve debut with her eighth studio album, SHINE ON. Sarah has sold over 40 million albums in her career and is one of the most respected female artists in music today.
The new album was recorded in Vancouver with longtime collaborator/producer Pierre Marchand,along with contributions from producer/songwriter Bob Rock and keyboardist Vincent Jones.

In a press release, McLachlan revealed that the album was inspired by her father's passing and her own appreciation of life: This album is about moving through the second half of my life in a more mindful and meaningful way, recognizing that every day, every moment is precious and though we all have our issues and problems, our damages, we all have the ability to continue to learn, grow from our experiences, thrive and shine on. Many of the songs are inspired at least partially or wholly by my father's passing three years ago and the profound effect losing him had on me. I had to find my footing again
without the anchor of his unconditional love.

Recommend it to any Sarah McLachlan fan!

This is a wonderful collection of music....The lyrics have a very positive message and Sarah's voice is, as always, beautiful.
This is one of her best if not her best disc.

I’m a hardcore Sarah fan from way back, and still consider Fumbling Towards Ecstasy and Surfacing her greatest works. After that to me it seemed her albums became a bit overproduced (Laws of Illusion especially), which basically condemned them to sound like soulless background music. Thankfully, this album is a lot less “polished”--the drums have a lot more kick to them and everything sounds simpler, which to me is a huge plus.

Song-wise, I’d say this is her best effort since Surfacing. The music doesn’t quite have the same soul as her greatest work, but they’re way closer than anything on her last album and most of Afterglow, and there are some really good tracks on this album. I must say, I’m really enjoying some of jazzy instruments and upbeat arrangements.

Also I'd like to suggest that, while driving alone in your car, you crank up the volume on “Turn the Lights Down Low” and just enjoy the deliciously different chord progressions.

All in all, I’d say this is a pretty great album. Surfacing may still be my favorite, but this is quite enjoyable to listen to on a sunny spring day.

Upon reading the announcement for "Shine on" a few months ago, I wished this record to be a lot more adventurous and promising than its saccharine cover and bland title. Following the relatively moderate success of 2003's "Afterglow" which was somewhat over-looked, and, even more so, the mediocre sales of 2010's "Laws of illusion", as a long-time fan, I longed for an album that would put things in the right place. So here it is, Sarah McLachlan's first album for her new label. I am quite regretful for saying this, but "Shine on" is an album of a talented artist taking no risk, simply re-affirming her ability to write beautiful songs. That is not a bad thing, but when someone has witnessed the outstanding quality of her past records, good is simply not "Good enough" (where are songs like this?).

Most will claim that her absolute artistic and commercial peak is the sublime "Fumbling towards ecstasy". Indeed, it is records with gut-wrenching songs like those that defined an era, and propelled her into international success and acclaim. Her status as one of the greatest singers-songwriters of her generation is unquestionable, her voice remains captivating as ever. But 25 years into her career, Sarah McLachlan should be willing to make substantive changes to her sound, evolve as an artist, rather than embracing once again over-familiar material with no punch or edge. "Flesh and blood", "Monsters", "Song for my father", and "Love beside me" are some bright reminders of the great talent that she is. I love her dearly, so I am waiting for the sunshine, to me this is just some rays of light.

After listening to this album for the past week, I can gladly say "Welcome back Sarah!"To me, she's back in fine form and has never sounded better. Shine On depicts Sarah's journey through loss, getting over the loss, slowly finding herself and being whole again. Below is my song by song review:

In Your Shoes - What a vibrant energetic start to the album! Instantly likeable and fairly catchy, it's a great kick-off single for Shine On. It sounds so Sarah yet sound entirely new. I'm reminded of the energy of 'Into The Fire'. What started out as an empowerment anthem for the bullied, evolved into Sarah's own dedication to Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani children's education activist. One of the best empowerment lyrics in a song I've heard. Rating: 9.5/10

Flesh & Blood - The beginning melancholic strains reminds me of 'Wait'. Then it starts to talk about desire and then builds to a rocking climax. From lyrics like "insatiable like raging fire" and " ravage me from head to heart", only Sarah can make a song about sex sound supremely sensual. The kicker is the bridge "Logic escapes me. And I can't breathe. Cause you burn into my bones". The breathlessness when she sings "and I can't breathe" and the long drawn out "burrrnnn" makes you feel like you're really feeling her pleasure. Love love the 80s rock anthemic drums thrown in. Rating 9/10

Monsters - Instantly likeable and catchy song. The lyrics are unconventional; talking about thousand year old dragons, wolf in sheep's clothing, three-headed monsters and so on. Maybe it's Sarah's own forewarning to her daughters; that things and people are not as they seem in the entertainment business. The groovy rhythm immediately brought me back to the sounds of Lilith Fair.

As a long time fan since Fumbling was released, seen her in concert 5 times I am always anxiously awaiting new material from my fellow Canadian singer songwriter. At first listen I was actually underwelmed thinking she was to "safe" and to many tracks were slow and boring. As with every album I need to re-listen a few times to make a proper opinion and upon listening to the tracks in high quality with my headphones my opinion obviously changed. I went back and forth listening to L.O.I, surfacing and Afterglow and Shine On definitely stands out strongly. Lots of variety of music pace, instruments, tempo. The organization of songs are perfect and Sarah actually is a lot more positive and uplifting vs L.O.I. Stand out tracks: In your shoes, Flesh and Blood, Monsters, Song for My father, Love Beside Me, Turn the Light Down Low, Surrender and Certainty. I can listen to the entire album without skipping a track which wasn't the case for L.O.I or Afterglow and even sometimes Surfacing. Of course Fumbling continues to be a masterpiece but Shine On is a wonderful addition to Sarah's collection

Hope it doesn't disappoint.
My humble opinion: Sarah never disappoints. Her voice is beautiful. Most, if not all, of the songs on the new album deal with the death of Sarah's father. Good art stems from sadness and difficult times. SHINE ON will be another rousing success for McLachlan. I'm looking forward to it.
