Review: Sarah McLachlan Laws of Illusion

I was so excited to hear that one of my favorite singer/songwriter, Sarah McLachlan, has finally, after 7 years, is set to release a new CD, Laws of Illusion, on June 15th.   With the return of Sarah also brings the of the historic all-female Lilith Fair festival this summer!  For those of you who don't know, from 1997 through 1999, Lilith Fair was one of the highest grossing touring festivals in the world, with over 2 million fans in attendance and raising over $10 million dollars for national and local women's charities.  Click HERE for Lilith Fair tour dates.

Just to wet your taste buds, Sarah will be hosting a listening party on her Facebook page starting June 7th at 10am, so become a fan on Facebook to be the first to hear her awesome new album.

The album's first single to be released is  “Loving You Is Easy.”

Here is the tracklisting:

1. AWAKENINGS
2. ILLUSIONS OF BLISS
3. LOVING YOU IS EASY
4. CHANGES
5. FORGIVENESS
6. RIVERS OF LOVE
7. LOVE COME
8. OUT OF TUNE
9. HEARTBREAK
10. DON’T GIVE UP ON US
11. U WANT ME 2
12. BRING ON THE WONDER

There is an addition version of Love Come at the end which happens to be my favorite.

I don't think Sarah McLachlan can put something out that I don't like.  I have been listening to her since the late 80's--back in my college days!  Her words speak from the soul and seems to reach out and touch you.  She seems to capture the essence of womanhood.  This new CD has not disappointed me.  She continues to have that sultry, soulful voice that belts out tunes from her heart.  She sings about love, heartbreak, and falling in love again. 

"Loving You is Easy" is a cheerful, upbeat, catchy love song that is sure to be a hit.  "Forgiveness" is a powerful song that I am sure every woman can relate to at some point.  I love "Illusions of Bliss."  I just like to close my eyes and sit back and enjoy this one.  My favorite is the second version of "Love Comes."  The music and her voice really touches me in this song.

Whether you still buy CDs or you download all your music, I think you should run to get this album (I guess they are still calling it an album).  You won't regret it--it is AWESOME!
